Sun Mountain H2NO Lite Speed Carry Bag Review

Sun Mountain produce some of the best golf bags on the market and, with this H2NO Lite Speed Carry Bag, it is no exception, with it being a superb performer and one of the best Sun Mountain golf bags that money can buy.

Within the range, there are five colours to choose from, with this very striking electric blue and white option being the choice for the test. The first thing to appreciate is quite how light this bag is. Weighing just 2kg, there is still bundles of space with a four-way top.

This is a proper golfer’s bag with everything in the right place and you can tell that a lot of thought has gone into it. One thing that we were very pleased with was the particularly sizeable ‘hydration pouch’, which has room for a large bottle of whatever takes your fancy.

The velour-lined valuables pocket is also split into two, so there’s a place for your loose change, phone and wallet etc, while there is also a full length clothing pocket that will easily take a set of waterproofs with room for your other bits.

To carry, it has an X-Strap fitted dual strap and there’s even a padded hip part so your clubs aren’t constantly clanking against your body. Other nice touches are a small hook to attach your club-cleaning brushes or your bag tags and your umbrella can easily be hidden away.

Where the bag really came into its own was on a wet and miserable day where it kept our clubs dry from four hours in the rain. It really is one of the best waterproof golf bags on the market!

The rain hood, with a two-way zip, doesn’t just slip over the clubs before slowly coming loose, there are Velcro attachments all the way around the top of the bag and a very secure one around the grab handle. 

All seams are then taped and sealed. Eighteen holes later and no rain had made its way into the bag and every grip was dry.

The seam sealed pockets on the Sun Mountain H2NO Lite Speed Carry Bag work flawlessly

There is also a velcro leg lock system, which is a great bonus for when you’re transporting your clubs about the place. This ticks absolutely every box that you want in a bag; the colours stand out and are very smart and it’s pretty much as accommodating as a cart bag for space with the practicality of a carry bag.
