I'm always looking forward to this sale but I'm not so pumped on the collection honestly...  I loved the original Utility but haven't heard such stellar reviews about the Trouper... at these prices I have to wonder if its worth the shot, though.  Really dont need another bag!!!!  Dang it, Jones.

I had the previous Trouper and while I liked the style, materials used, and spacious divider top, there were two things I couldn't get past: 

1 -  When using both straps, the bag would not sit right.  Even after multiple strap adjustments, the clubs felt like they were falling out.

2 - I was not a fan of the cooler pocket.  I carry quite a bit and while I wouldn't say I'm a minimalist golfer, I do only bring what I need  on the course and I need my bags to be lightweight and have just enough pockets without going over.  While Troupers are surprisingly lightweight, the pockets, to me, were unnecessary.

Thanks.  After sleeping on it, I am going to pass even if the deals are really good.  I have 4 bags right now, a Hoofer Lite, SM 3.5 LS, Srixon Z85, and a Jones Players.  All have their upsides but for lightweight carry bags, the 3.5 and the Players are about as good as it gets for me.  The Z85 is comfortable but a little heavy when loaded and the HL is good, but nothing I would rave about, solid all around.  I could not deal with what you say about the straps, that sounds annoying AF and I feel I would regret that when I already have other options.  Thanks for the input.

Picked up the Utility Trouper 2 in white.  Jones is a classic brand, so there’s the nostalgia factor as well.  I prefer the understated, minimalist, but quality design.  Had to pay for shipping, but no tax to Cali is a big plus!

 

BTW, my order said it wouldn’t ship till mid-December.  Same for all the other Trouper 2 buyers out there?

 

Thanks to the OP for posting this!

My bag (non Trouper 2) has shipped already. The Utility 2s all have a disclaimer of mid December shipping on their product pages. They're also brand new so I'm guessing they haven't arrived from the producer yet. The new Utility Rover carry bags have the same warning.

Mine came today. The shoulder strap might be the comfiest thing i own. 


 

What bag did you get? I know a big complaint of the original Trouper was the straps. I ordered a 2.0 hoping they fixed it.

I think all Trouper 2.0 are mid December. They were a new release on Black Friday, I believe. That’s why there was a delay on the shipping.

Trouper 2.0 showed up today. I don’t mind the straps. I carry single strap most of the time and either works fine for that depending on the shoulder I put it on. Plenty of room for 14 clubs. I use my original stand when I take a short set out to play.

I received mine over the weekend - the 2.0 trouper. I absolutely LOVE the top (especially compared to my Jones utility herringbone Greyson bag). However, I hate the pocket setup. My current one, as well as the trouper 1.0 had a great pocket layout. Why they put a giant cooler in the main area baffles me. The new pocket layout is bad IMO. Anywho, I’ll probably return it, or try to trade for a 1.0.

Mind blowing to me they released this. It would be the perfect bag for me if not for the worst pocket design I’ve maybe ever seen in a bag. Very disappointed because I love the look and brand.

I’m glad I’m not alone on this! I LOVE Jones bags. But why they changed the pocket arrangement makes zero sense. My utility Greyson herringbone is the best bag I’ve ever had - with the exception of the top. The new tops are absolutely perfect, but the pockets suck!

the giant cooler pocket is definitely a puzzling decision. I think I'll get adjusted to the pocket layout once I get out and start playing with it.


I’ve played about 6 rounds with mine and the cooler pocket doesn’t seem to be an issue at all. I keep a drink in the cooler, tees to the left of the cooler and balls to the right (the one that sits under the cooler. I only carry ~8 balls when I play and I take them out of their sleeves so I don’t have any issues. I keep my range find in the top right pocket, phone and keys in the one underneath that.

I didn't necessarily think the cooler pocket is an issue (especially since the pocket to the right shares the same space essentially). Probably my own opinion that I wouldn't rank an insulated pocket high on my list of priority on a golf bag. Water bottle I carry is insulated already, and I'm not carrying beers around when I'm walking.
