Wanting some opinions on the best travel bag to transport your clubs via the

airlines. By best I mean the most secure and gives the most protection to

your clubs. Also, any tricks and methods of packing your clubs to minimize

damage. Thanks for all input.

 

Club Glove Last Bag. Get the stiff arm and if you'd like to go further, wrap a towel around the clubs or use headcovers. Can't really ask for anything more...

Club Glove burst proof or last bag, but if you can't afford them I'd say the Ogio Straight Jacket. The rip stop meterial is awesome. I bought the stiff arm and with that together it's all good. I take some towels and wrap them around the bag itself and interwine a towel around all of the clubs--probably a little more than necessary, but better safe than sorry.

I second the Club Glove! For extra protection use the stiff arm and wrap towels around the club heads to provide extra padding. In addition, that is the only time I use covers on my irons to prevent nicks and dings from the clubs banging against each other.

These guys make bags for the US Military - I have had both a hard cover and the semi - rigid one called a hard top. Very happy with the hard top - its been a quite a few trips and no mishaps.

 

you also get a guarantee.

Some more details on the hard top case, incidently you can get a big single stand bag in or when the wife and I go away together we get 2 x mizuno weekender stand bags in (6").

 

http://www.skbcases.com/sports/product/golf/hardtop.html

 

If you google 'TRAVEL-TEK™ HARD TOP BAG' you will find lots of reviews on the web, seems to retail at $150 over there.

 

This is what the blurb says:

The Travel-Tek HardTop is a fully padded case with a reinforced top providing 18" of hardshell protection for your club heads. The HardTop can accommodate drivers up to 50" in length. The Stiff Arm, which comes standard, condenses to 18" for storage, but expands to 50" so that any direct blow that a luggage handler may deliver to the clubs is absorbed by the stick, thus protecting your clubs' heads and shafts.

Accommodate drivers up to 50" in length

The bottom 2/3 of the bag to stuff into the lid for compact storage

Smooth-rolling glide wheels

Oversized suitcase pocket for clothing and a second exterior pocket for accessories

All pockets will accept a consumer supplied lock for added security

Unzips 270 degrees to allow for easy golf bag storage and removal

Free stiff arm included

 

When the wife (and twins) and I go on holiday, I normally fill it with two 6" stand bags and clubs, 2 x golf shoes, 4 dozen balls and a tonne of nappies.

also, there is nothing wrong with brand loyalty. It is my money and my decisions, so I can use whatever I want. If the bag or equipment did not work, I would not be using them. I have respect for TM products, and know that what I am using is quality stuff...just my 2 pennies
