It would be easy to discredit the value of a new golf bag. After all, wouldn’t that money be better spent on some new clubs?
In fact, golf bags are amazingly one of the fastest evolving pieces of golf equipment. Bags have become drastically more durable, comfortable, lightweight, waterproof, and more through the implementation of new material sciences. Today let’s take a look at some of the best new bags in 2021!
Founded in 1981, this American company has been releasing some of the best bags on the market for decades. In our experience, their support and commitment to their customers is nearly unparalleled in the industry. It is also important to mention that all of their bags are assembled right here in the United States in Missoula, Montana.
Possibly our favorite from Sun Mountain is their amazing 2.5+ 14-Way Stand Bag. This bag is loaded with features. However, I’ll lead with the most impressive. This bag has 14 club dividers that run the full length of the bag. These dividers are stitched in and highly durable. Despite this, the bag still manages to weigh in at under 4lbs! This weight is possible by the carbon fiber legs and rip-resistant fabrics. Did we mention it even includes 6 pockets, including designated pockets for beverages, valuables, and your rangefinder? If you’re looking for a stand bag that can do it all, we highly recommend giving this one a look!
2021 Boom 5-Way Cart Bag
Our second bag from Sun Mountain is something very unique. The brand new Boom 5-Way Cart Bag features a built-in speaker system. This bag takes cart riding to the next level. The very well designed bag includes 5 dividers, 13 pockets, and a clear vinyl window so you can see and control your listening experience. Sun Mountain certainly makes more conventional cart bags if this isn’t your style, but it may be a glimpse into the future as technology and electronics make their way into the golf bag industry.
This is a company that probably needs no introduction. Since its beginning in 1959 PING has been at the forefront of the golf industry and has probably most notably redefined the golf putter industry. PING utilizes that same immense attention to detail and engineering to construct some truly incredible golf bags.
This bag is PING’s newest addition to the ultralightweight segment. Weighing in at a mere 3 pounds this bag packs a serious punch. Utilizing ultralight fabrics and carbon fiber components this bag manages to still include a 4-way top and 7 pockets. The unique hinged base prevents tipping over out on the course as well. If you’re still lugging around a heavy and awkward bag then this may be the perfect upgrade for you.
This newly designed bag may have perfected the classic cart bag design. While it may not reinvent the wheel this bag certainly makes life easier with its 14-way top, large cooler pocket, and two extra-large wells for putter grips. If you’re looking for a no-frills cart bag then this may very well be the bag for you!
Bag Boy has been in the golf bag industry longer than most of the other companies on this list have existed. In that time they have made a solid name for themselves by making consistently quality products.
Bag Boy is changing the game once again with this innovative and unique design. The bag not only features, 14-way dividers, a rubber putter well, 9 pockets, and a patented bag-to-cart attachment system but also a removable insulated cooler that holds up to 6 12-ounce cans. Bag Boy accomplishes all of this while also only weighing 6.4 pounds which is truly remarkable.
Titleist is a powerhouse in the golf club industry. Amazingly, Titleist carries its skill and expertise into the golf bag industry as well. There are few brands that so expertly balance the style and functionality of Titleist. It may entirely subjective but it’s hard to not see the beauty in almost all of Titleist’s products
With this bag, Titleist does what it does best, and created a beautiful, lightweight, and functional cart bag. Its got a removable ball pocket, 15 full-length dividers, 11 zippered pockets, and soft-touch handles. All of these features also weigh in at just 6.5 pounds, which is highly competitive. Personally, we also find this bag to arguably be one of the most attractive currently in production.
Sadly our article can’t include every single bag worth buying as it would be way too long! We also strongly recommend the new bags from Nike, TaylorMade, Callaway, OGIO, and many more! It can be a daunting task to pick out a new golf bag. We would recommend focusing on the features that are most important to you and find the bag that checks most of those boxes! Now is certainly the time to upgrade!
