Used to have it - the handle doesn’t dig into your back when carrying.  Incredible carry bag and much better than newer version in my opinion.

Yep, that's the one.  Been searching for a new one for awhile and found the black/grey/red today, and then ordered a single strap from Sun Mtn.  Won't have any balance issues with the single strap, and with only about 8 clubs in it there won't be a need for messing with the double straps.

Just found a new 2019 version of the 2.5+ with single strap, had to pull the trigger as the 2019 version is the best Sun Mtn bag I've ever tried.  Don't like the newer versions with the square tops.  Will be my half set walking bag.  Hoofer Lite will be my every day bag.

Oh man, it’s one of the best features of the new bags, IMO.  The square top looks weird, but it is the least tangle bag I’ve ever used.

I've had both versions, didn't notice any difference other than the looks.

The extra pocket above the ball pocket of the new 2.5+ is such a subtle little bit of awesome as well!

 

But I agree, the 4 way top on the current 2.5+ is pretty incredible for it’s size.  Super functional,.

Is that the one you just sold or was that the 2020?

Here's my next attempt at the perfect bag.  Back to a 2021 2.5+, but took off the double strap and replaced with the Sun Mtn universal single strap.  My plan would be to use this for a minimalist 8 club setup (D, 3h, 5i, 7i, 9i, 52, 58, P).  The single strap is very nice and padded, and has built in segments that makes it flex.  The stock double strap is impossible to get a good balance with a half set of clubs as there isn't enough weight at the top of the bag since there are way fewer club heads.  The single strap solves this very nicely and it's so easy to just slip it on and go.  No need to fumble with getting the left arm in the double strap and not necessary since it's so light with 8 clubs.

 

The big catch is that this is very expensive for a part time setup.  I'll be loading up with the full set to try it out later, but I think the double strap would be the way to go there, and then I'd switch over to the Hoofer Lite.  A pricey solution, but why not.

Called Sun Mtn and ordered it directly from them.  It comes in black or navy.  A local store with an account can also do this for you.

Love the look of that setup. Your head covers look sweet with the navy! Hope it works well for you.

Anyone here pick up the 2021 Mizuno K1-LO? I saw it at the pro shop a couple days ago and it looks like a winner but I don't want to be stuck with it after a round or two because of some obscure flaw.

That new K1-LO looks sick, it looks like the upped the top opening size and the straps look to edge out the SM X-Strap. Ugh that's a tough call!

Has the Mizuno gone to individual, boxed dividers yet?

Sun Mountain 4.5 LS or Titleist Hybrid 5?

 

I'm torn between the two.  

 

Ride a cart more than I walk, usually due to time constraints, but do enjoy walking when I can.  Both seem to have ample room, and well constructed, however I feel like the apparel pocket on the SM would be more useful than the Hybrid.

 

Any input would be appreciated.

I have a 2020 Hoofer Lite and a 2019 Sun Mountain 2.5.  They're the same height, but for what you're asking about the Sun Mtn would be better since the PING bags push the clubs up and out of the bag some when the stand is engaged (ie, would exaggerate the club lengths).

 Good find!  I’m glad they swapped out the straps on the 3.5 this go around 

Try it before you buy it.  I find it to be the worst strap system they offer.  If switching, I think they should have gone to the EZ Fit on the 4.5.
