©Sun Mountain Golf

The Sun Mountain 2.5+ Stand Bag retails for $219.99 (MSRP) and it comes with 5 pockets, including a full length apparel pocket, a valuables pocket (velour lined), a ball pocket with 2 zippers, a beverage pouch and the company’s proprietary X-Strap system, which makes sure your golf bag is easy to get on and off. Also, the Sun Mountain 2.5+ Stand Bag features strong and reliable carbon fiber made legs and it’s light as a feather considering its dimensions. To describe it in a few words, the Sun Mountain 2.5+ weighs under three pounds, yet it makes zero compromises with regard to necessary requirements. Every golfer knows that finding the perfect combo of weight, storage and reliability is a never-ending quest when it comes to the ideal stand bag. In order to make their golf bags as light as possible, many companies sacrifice strong materials in the process, or they sacrifice storage space/useful pockets, and that really shows in the final product. However, the Sun Mountain 2.5+ Stand Bag doesn’t suffer from those issues, as the company managed to maintain its well known standard of quality.

In terms of looks and design, the Sun Mountain 2.5+ is a no-frills, no-nonsense workhorse, featuring a minimalist styling, yet there are no less than 8 colors available to “express yourself”. You can be sure of one thing with the Sun Mountain 2.5+: no one will ever accuse you of being too “flashy” on the golf course, as this stand bag is the definition of sobriety and practicality. Okay, that unless you go for the neon yellow-black option. Now, let’s see about that Sun Mountain’s standard of quality I already told you about. Despite being a very light weight piece of golf gear, the Sun Mountain 2.5+ Stand Bag features heavy duty and sturdy zippers and handles, not to mention the nylon used in this bag’s construction, which is very light, yet you can bet durability was not sacrificed in the process. The stand mechanism is also surprisingly light, yet perfectly functional, even if it takes a little more force than normal. To make for a much more comfortable carry, the Sun Mountain 2.5+ comes with extra padding to the double strap, which distributes the weight evenly; functionality-wise, this stand bag performs amazingly, considering its rather small size. Bottom line, this baby is tough as nails, lightweight and easy to carry around, making for a great everyday golf bag at a reasonable price.
