Not only is the Jones Sports Co. Trouper R quickly becoming a favorite for walkers, it’s also got plenty of space to carry whatever you need for your round.
It’s Jones’ most sustainable offering yet, made from a recycled, ripstop material, woven from 100% PET single-use plastic bottles.
Perhaps the best part is the large cooler taking the place of the ball pocket on the spine that can fit four 16 oz cans!
This golf bag may have the word “Sunday” in the name, but make no mistake, the Vessel Sunday III Stand is equipped to meet the everyday needs of the modern walking golfer.
Weighing in at 4.55 lbs, this double-strapped bag, which easily converts to a single strap, is ideal for the player who carries it every day, while still having plenty of room with five pockets.
Vessel is a big player in the modern luxury golf bag trend and the new Player IV Stand is the most refined version yet.
Constructed from tour-grade synthetic leather, the Player IV Stand comes in both a six-way top and 14-way top to fit your preferences (we suggest the 14-way top for riders).
While this bag is on the heavier side, coming in just over six pounds in the six-way variant, it’s still manageable to carry every day thanks to Vessel’s patented technologies (Equilibrium Double Strap and Rotator Base) for maximum balance and superior stability.
Comfy to carry, avid walkers will love this bag. At just under 3 lbs., this is the lightest bag on our stand bag list and has a 4-way divided top, allowing for a well-organized club assortment. The 2024 2.5+ bag is extra spacious and super light, durable and sleek.
You’ll have plenty of room for your clubs, rangefinder, drinks, and any other golf accessories you bring for your round. See this bag in more colors here.
This bag is also featured in our picks for the best carry bags of 2023.
When I decided I was ready to purchase a more luxury-minded bag, designed to last me several years, I went with Sun Mountain’s new Mid-Stripe collection.
This is Sun Mountain’s latest and most notable entry into the luxury bag space, and it’s a hit with an array of bright colors and durable vinyl material.
The bag is currently offered in nine color combinations, with more on the way, and several variations including the slimmer and lighter Mid-Stripe Ace (my personal bag of choice), a cart bag and a number of matching accessories. The bag styles can be customized further between a 4- or 14-way top, a double or single strap and a custom metal plate with a logo or initials.
A staple for the walking golfer, it’s no wonder the Ping Hoofer is the choice of high school and college golf teams everywhere.
A timeless and lightweight design that has been updated and refined over the years, the latest hoofer has a five-way top with a new bottom that reduces club tangle by guiding clubs to the correct segment, making it easy to pull out the club you want and the club you don’t too.
The Hoofer comes in 10 colors.
Another entry into the luxury bag space, the MNML MV2 might be the most unique one of them all.
Made from a lightweight microsuede material, the MV2 comes in at 5.5 lbs and offers the ability to add a phone charger directly into the bag.
A modern take on the classic leather bag from Titleist, coming in at 5.3 lbs, the Titleist LINKSLEGEND Members bag is perfect for anyone who wants to stand out at their course.
Thanks to 4-way full-length dividers and a refined arrangement of the six pockets, this bag is possibly even more functional than it is striking.
All the attention to detail and craftsmanship that GFORE puts into their popular golf shoes, they also put into their golf bags.
The Daytona Plus features a velour lining for your clubs, letting them slide in and out with ease.
One of the innovators of the luxury bag market, the Stitch SL2 is the latest take on the uber-popular original.
Easily convertible between a single and double strap, the SL2’s 9.5 in x 7.5 in top makes it one of the easiest bags to carry on the market.
And now, you can customize your SL2 with the popular MY SL2 program coming to the double strap model for the first time.
