I have always been a fan of Sun Mountain apparel, accessories and bags and when presented with the opportunity to review the Under Armour Storm Armada USA golf bag which is ‘powered by Sun Mountain Sports’, I was thrilled. This is the perfect marriage of two powerhouse brands. With my commitment and devotion to our military and the Folds of Honor I was honored to have this USA bag on my cart and what better place to make an appearance at the Patriot Shootout benefiting the Folds of Honor Indiana.
The first thing that I noticed about this bag was the incredible way it represented the USA in it’s red, white and blue coloring. Front and center was embroidered with an American flag and the words USA promptly placed on the side.
The UA Storm Armada bag is made of the same ballistic quality nylon and water resistant fabric that golfers have come to expect from Under Armour and Sun Mountain. The UA Storm bag is not lacking for space or specialty designed pockets. It is equipped with 2 water resistant pockets designed to keep your technology dry, additional pockets for valuables, a cooler pocket and a magnetic-secured pocket for even more safety.
Another key feature on the Storm bag is the Smart Strap System that is secures the bag to the cart. I found this to be an invaluable feature while walking multiple days in extremely windy conditions at Bandon Dunes Resort. The cart strap is not only secure but gentle enough to keep from scratching my bag.
A couple of my favorite features with this bag include the amount of space in an otherwise traditional 14 slot top and the magnetic closed pocket. First of all, and most noticable, is the slot for your putter which is much larger than your traditional bag. This is ideal because in today’s game we have such a variety of putter grip sizes; from the traditional size to the oversized fat grips. Secondly the incredibly strong magnetically secured pocket that was front and center ideal for easy access to tees, balls and yardage cards. Never did I have to fumble around with a zipper or fear that I had not closed it because with the flick of a finger I could open and close the pocket with ease yet never doubted that it was completely secure.
Living in a climate like Florida obviously brings plenty of sunshine but does not lack in rain and afternoon showers (aka thunderstorms) which require golfers to always have an umbrella on hand. This bag has a specific slip in pocket nestled behind another pocket where your umbrella can safely and securely rest while still being easily accessible at all times.
At the end of the day you will be so pleased with this beauty that it will get the same attention that your tired feet are getting… resting peaceful beside the fireplace preparing for the next round.
