The 2Five golf bag from Sun Mountain is the lightest, full featured bag on the market, weighing in at, you guessed it, just 2 and a half pounds, or 1.1 kg.
2.5 pounds is the same weight as two wedges, a pair of golf shoes or 3 cans of soft drink, the sort of weight you'd expect from an old fashioned Sunday bag that carried a half set and nothing else.
Sun Mountain's new creation stands out, therefore, for the features it has managed to cram in to such a low weight package.
It is a full-size golf bag with an impressive 9 inch top with four, full length club dividers as well as four pockets, including a full length clothing pocket, valuables pocket, ball and accessories pocket and a water bottle pouch.
Don't be mistaken by the weight that it may not be tough and hard wearing too. The 2Five is constructed from an ultra-lightweight and durable 70 denier fabric that is commonly used in outdoor equipment such as mountaineering tents. The stand has light and highly durable carbon fibre legs and the frame uses a high strength-to weight plastic at the top and bottom of the bag.
Comfort is ensured with Sun Mountain's X-Strap Dual Strap System and a lumbar hip pad and the bag is completed with a sturdy built in handle and a patented Roller-Bottom leg mechanism for quick and strong leg action. Throw in an umbrella attachment, towel holder and pen holder as well as a ccoordinating rain hood and you have a fully functioning golf bag at the fraction of the normal weight.
11 different colour combinations allow you to pick one that suits your style with navy, black and green being backed up with some brighter options such as lime, lemon, orange or purple.
