The Sun Mountain Two 5 - Ours is on Order!
When you're at the top of a market segment, you can either forge forward with new ideas, or get caught by the competition. It's obvious that golf bag and push cart leaders Sun Mountain Sports prefer to keep in front of the pack, and their upcoming product, the "Two 5" is sure to be a hit among the kind of golfer who enjoys the walk.

Two 5 is a full size, dual strap, stand bag that only weighs 2.5 lbs. Sun Mountain pioneered the weight breakthrough of a full size stand bag with their extremely popular 3.5 models, so what can we expect from Two 5? Here are just a few of the features:

  • 8.5 inch top
  • 4 full-length club dividers
  • A full-length clothing pocket
  • multiple accessory pockets
  • Ergonomic hip pad
  • Solid base

Looking at the bag as a layperson you might wonder how they can get any lighter.

"Weight savings come from shaving ounces here and there," explained Sun Mountain spokesperson Steve Snyders. "And all of those ounces add up to pounds."

Or, in this case, one key pound. Some of the areas the Sun Mountain engineers looked at to shave those key ounces include carbon-fiber legs (in place of aluminum), a higher-grade and lighter plastic for the top and base, space-age fabric, lighter zipper, and a simpler dual strap.

Retail price for the Two 5 will be $229. It hits stores in May.
