Put plainly: Sun Mountain makes the bags favored by elite golfers. Club manufacturers and private courses alike often slap their logos on Sun Mountain carry bags, and with good reason: They really are the best. Solid construction and innovations set them apart from the competitors.
The topflight carry bag for 2017 is their H2NO Lite bag made of the same waterproofing material found in many rain jackets and rain gear these days. The $280 midsize stand bag has retractable legs, sealed seams, and fabric that is treated on both sides with a 2,000 mm waterproof coating—meaning it can withstand 2,000 mm of water pressure before the seal is penetrated—more than enough to withstand moderate rain. What’s the best part, you ask? The bag weighs only 4.5 pounds.
