Sun Mountain’s Lightest Golf Bag Improved For 2018

Missoula, Montana – Since its introduction, the Sun Mountain 2Five golf bag has been the lightest, full-featured bag on the market. Weight-saving components include carbon-fiber legs, high strength-to-weight plastics, and ultra-lightweight fabric. For 2018, the new 2.5+ will have increased durability, increased comfort, and more storage.

2.5+ is truly a full-size golf bag featuring a 9″ top and four, full-length club dividers. 2.5+ doesn’t skimp on conveniences, either, offering five pockets including a full-length clothing pocket, velour-lined valuables pocket, two accessory pockets, and a beverage pouch. 2.5+ also includes the details that have made Sun Mountain the #1 bag in golf: durable top with built-in handle, sturdy bottom with the patented Roller-Bottom leg mechanism for quick and strong leg action, Sun Mountain’s proprietary X-Strap® Dual Strap shoulder strap system, lumbar hip pad with AirFlow System, umbrella attachment, towel holder, top-mounted leg mechanism for added stability, pen holder, and a color-coordinating rainhood.
