Sun Mountain 2013 Three 5 Stand Bag

Ever since I have been a serious golfer, I have been like the rest of the golf world who always likes to change clubs when something new comes out. Always changing equipment is both fun and a challenge because it is something new that you have in your hands. Since this is something that commonly occurs in the everyday golfer, it makes purchasing a bag difficult for someone who wants to match equipment. I came across Sun Mountain about four years ago, and I have not looked back. The quality and looks of the bag, and the customer service that Sun Mountain stands by has kept me as a believer since that day.

 

Ever since I have been a serious golfer, I have been like the rest of the golf world who always likes to change clubs when something new comes out. Always changing equipment is both fun and a challenge because it is something new that you have in your hands. Since this is something that commonly occurs in the everyday golfer, it makes purchasing a bag difficult for someone who wants to match equipment. I came across Sun Mountain about four years ago, and I have not looked back. The quality and looks of the bag, and the customer service that Sun Mountain stands by has kept me as a believer since that day.

In this year’s line, the company hasn’t changed, but from my eye at first sight, the Sun Mountain Three5 seemed like it had changed from its previous styles. There are more details in terms of the graphics that are put on the bag, and the material seems a little bit lighter in weight. At first thought, the material felt  a little flimsy, so I wasn’t sure if the bag was going to be at the same level of quality as previous models. It is much thinner and you can definitely feel it. Since I have put this bag into play, it has held up to the usual Standards of a Sun Mountain Bag. There have not been any zipper issues, and the quality of the bag still looks good as new.


When buying a stand bag, most importantly for many people is the weight of the bag because it is going to be hanging from your shoulders for four hours. There are a lot of stand bags out there, but none are able to match the quality to weight ratio that the Sun Mountain Three5 bag stands to. The EZ-Fit strap system is easily adjusted to fit any size person and to fit your own personal needs to make it a very versatile bag. The other part of a stand bag is the stand mechanism and bottom of the bag. Every now and then, players will ride because a course requires it, or it is just too hot to walk. In these instances, there is nothing worse than putting your golf bag on the back of the cart and realizing it doesn’t fit so you have to turn the bag sideways and lose accessibility to the pickets. It just may be me, but I think it is the most annoying part of owning a bag. Sun Mountain researched this and designed all of their bags with their CFB or Cart Friendly Bottom. The CFB was designed so that the base of the bag even with the stand will fit perfectly on the cart so that you don’t sacrifice usage of your pockets or other parts of the bag.

Since I have been using this bag, Sun Mountain has proved once again why they are the best in the business. The Three5 Superlight is going to be an absolute home run of a bag for the golfer who is looking for a really lightweight stand bag, but one that has plenty of pocket space to hold what a golfer needs to hold. I would rate the Sun Mountain Three5 at a 9/10.
