Wilson - Seriously!!! ( Quiver Stand Bag Review )


Recommended Posts

OK,

 

Wilson seems to still catch a lot of flack around here for some reason but I wanted to take the time to let people know that they are both alive and well and also - making really great golf bags too.

 

Long story short:

 

I went out looking for a new "Sunday" bag, initially looking for something like a Jones or a PING MoonLite ( both amazing golf bags BTW ) but while having a conversation with the golf store employee - a job I once had as a younger man, I was asked "Have you seen the new Wilson Carry Bag?" I being someone who does not frequent golf stores to often, or ever really looked at Wilson bags basically EVER - since I never found them appealing back when I used to work in a big box golf store ( a decade ago ) so I politely replied "no".

 

Then he pulls out the Wilson Quiver:

 

WOW, Such a nice little golf bag perfectly built for the task!!

 

Great top dividers, Super Light ( WITH A STAND ), comfy Straps, and a "hoofer - like" bottom. This is a big win for me since I have always been and continue to be a massive fan of PING bags. Since the patent ran out and PING ( from all my accounts ) choose not to renew is the reason you see so many versions of that system out now. I should also mention it was only $100 BUCKS ( Canadian - so thats like $27 USD - could be wrong there ) but you get the idea LOTS of value especially considering what I've seen similar bags sell for.

 

I'm VERY picky when it comes to golf bags as one of my previous reviews makes very clear:

NOTE: Still own the Above Mizuno bag and LOVE it, just wanted to find a smaller one for those quick nines ( and lets be honest new stuff is just sometimes fun too )

 

I have walked and used this bag as a test on my Caddytek cart a couple times already and I cant say enough great things about it. Pockets in the right place and not too many of them, straps work really well and easy to adjust, can easily hold a full set - I use std size grips and bigger ones may cause a problem. Stand pops out well, molded handle at the top is sturdy and easy to grab.

 

This bag is an absolute winner 100%, You WILL not find a new bag at this price at this quality from any other company as far as I am concerned.

 

ONLY Negative and until proven right its not actually a negative, the fabric is very light and I worry it might not have the overall durability for the long run but so far Its amazing - just want to do my best to present both the pros and cons of the product.

 

Pictures below, if you have any other questions just ask.

Thanks for the review. I started a topic on the mid bag vs the 2.5+ to which there was only 1 reply. I really like the looks of the Quiver. For $99 it should be great. Thanks again!

 

You can get it cheaper than that if you look around. Rock bottom golf had this for $67.99 at one point, and they currently have it at 79.99 (as do a few others). Nice looking bag.

Seems like this is meant to compete with the Sun Mtn 2.5+ and similar bags. Based on the pics, I see where the 2.5+ has several advantages (water bottle pocket, zippered spine pocket, attachment points of straps, 4 full length dividers), though it may not be worth the extra cost for some. If you carry a lot and an ultralight will be your primary bag, then the 2.5+ is difficult to beat. Cost is the only con I see.

The Pocket on the spine is for a water bottle- holds a full 2l large bottle, and there is a full zipper pocket down the length of the bag. Dividers are full length but not totally separated.

 

The Straps are very good on the Wilson - Like I said before, it has to be easy to put on and comfy because I'm traditionally a PING bag guy and if any bag is not up to snuff, I wont buy - That simple. As other have said, very L8 like

Thank you for the review. I am really interested in this bag. I have two questions I hope you don’t mind answering, does it come with a rain hood, and have you used it on a cart (riding)? Thanks again, Z.

 

Yes it comes with a rain hood.

 

I have used it for both riding in a cart and also using my push cart.

 

Riding in a cart is no problem, but it does move around a bit because the base of the bag is small but beyond that there are no issues and you loose no access to any of the pockets.

I agree Wilson seems to be regularly overlooked. I'm in the market for a new lightweight carry bag at the moment (I walk pretty much always) and after looking at all of the big guys I think I'm going to pull the trigger on an Ionix SL. It's crazy light without compromising structural integrity and looks pretty sharp to boot.

How did this work out for you this year? I just picked up the same bag after reading your review on it. Did it hold up well to the rigors of use?

So far so good since this review.

 

It became my go to bag only for the reason that most of my rounds late summer were just a quick nine walking - but I also used it on my push cart at least a half a dozen times too. It still looks and acts new and I don't "baby" my gear.

 

Going into 2019 this will certainly be something I will continue to use.

Glad to hear it! Later on in the summer my most common round was exactly the same, and carrying a regular bag with 14 clubs became murder on my back and shoulders.

 

I recently picked up a TM Flex Tech bag for carting.

Still have it, still love it. I have it in my main bag rotation with a couple others but it has seen a lot of action, from carrying, pushcarts, and riding carts and it had stood up to everything. Still the best value bag in golf in my opinion

Can you get 14 clubs into it?

 

Edit: well I could get them in and I bought the bag. Thanks for the review!
