TaylorMade has announced an update to their already impressive range of golf bags for the 2021 season, including a couple of models which take waterproof protection to the next level.
We first tested the FlexTech bag back in 2019 and we were extremely impressed, so much so that we'd suggest TaylorMade are one of the first brands you go to when looking for a new bag.
The new collection features four new FlexTech models, along with two new cart bags to add to the existing selection, meaning that there should be a bag to suit every golfer.
Let's take a closer look at the new range here...
FlexTech Waterproof Bag
The flagship model of the new range, this bag features a lightweight waterproof fabric with a PSI level of 2,500mm. It also comes with five waterproof seam sealed pockets, a five-way top with two full-length dividers, and convenient front grab handle for easy maneuverability.
There is also a FlexTech stand system with a collapsible base, smooth release, and anti-split stand.
Weighing in at 2.1kg, the FlexTech Waterproof is priced at £239 and comes in a number of colourways: Black/White, Navy/Yellow, Black/Charcoal, Royal/Silver and Black/Blue/White.
The standard FlexTech bag has been designed with more pocket space in mind. Additional side pockets have been included in the centre of the bag to create a single piece construction, allowing the convenience of more storage without adding further weight.
There's a self-adjusting Strap Slider system which allows the bag to stay stable whilst on the golfer's back, along with the FlexTech stand system and 11 pockets in total.
Priced at £179, the FlexTech is available in Black/Slate, Black/Lime Neon, Titanium/Blue Steel, and Black/Blue/White.
As the name suggests, this is the lightest bag in the FlexTech family at just 2.1kg, making it ideal for golfers who prefer to carry but do not want to compromise on build quality.
TaylorMade have been able to save weight in this bag by moving to a single stay construction, compared to the three or four stays previously used.
The main stay that runs along the spine of the bag was modified to ensure that it is durable whilst staying lightweight.
The FlexTech Lite is £179 and comes in Blue/Black, Cool Grey/Titanium/Orange, Navy/Lime Neon, Cool Grey/Red/Black, Kalea, and Black/White/Blue.
The FlexTech Crossover features a 14-way top to help golfers protect their clubs a little better, as well as reducing any noise whilst walking.
Whilst it is still a stand bag, it provides more of a bridge between a cart and stand bag due to a slightly bigger size and a couple of extra features.
It's priced at £199 and comes in Blue/Black, Slate and Black/White/Blue.
Storm-Dry Cart Bag
The new Storm-Dry cart bag features a lightweight waterproof fabric with a PSI level of 2,500mm providing ultimate protection in even the worst conditions, along with a 14-way top with large putter well and a key lock base to secure the bag to the trolley.
A single shoulder strap makes the bag easy to carry to and from the trolley, whilst a comfortable handle allows for easy removal from any vehicle.
There are seven pockets in total, including a velour-lined valuables pocket, two garment pockets, a rangefinder pocket, accessory pocket, ball pocket and tee pocket.
The pockets all feature thermo-sealed zippers, keeping stored items safe and dry in even the worst of weather.
The Storm-Dry has an RRP of £269 and is available in Navy/Blue, Black/Charcoal, Navy/Red, Black/Red, Kalea and Black/Blue/White.
Deluxe Cart Bag
The Deluxe bag has been one of the staples of TaylorMade's bag lineup and it continues into 2021. The bag has a premium finish thanks to a durable polytube construction and anti-wear patch.
Weighing 3.8kg it's clearly the heaviest bag in the range but is also the most feature-heavy, with an extra-large putter well, key lock base, padded strap and eight strategically placed pockets.
Priced at £239, there are five colourways available: Black/Red, Black/Blue, Black/Grey, Women's, and White/Blue/Black.
