Final grades were awarded based on total scores. Best Overall is our highest overall scoring travel bag, and awards are given to the top three bags. Also, more specific Best in Class recognitions are awarded to bags in certain categories (like maneuverability, protection, and durability) that push the industry’s design envelope.
One key to our testing protocols is that we test products head-to-head. We select the top products from each category and put them through extensive and detailed head-to-head testing. We test both in the lab and in the field. We score each product across a range of weighted categories. We then rank the products, explain why products finished where they did, and give awards to the best-performing products in the category.

Hybrid bags are best thought of as cart bags with the ability to stand. Most are larger than your typical stand bag and are usually used on carts, but can also be used for walking when needed. More and more manufacturers have begun creating hybrid bags, innovating to reduce weight and increase versatility while not sacrificing function.
Different golfers have different needs from their golf bags. Walkers need lightweight bags that can be easily put on their back for the entire round without zapping too much energy. Electric and gas cart users need extra storage and pockets that can be accessed when the bag is strapped in. Golfers who are dedicated to practice or speed golf will be interested in the minimal Sunday bag. There are also many models that combine all of these features for maximum functionality. Learn more about different types of golf bags and select the combination of form and features that best suits your game.
The Ogio is the cheapest of our three options, coming in under $150. As far as travel bags go, you don’t want to go much cheaper than this. Your clubs are worth a decent amount of money, so you want to protect them as much as you can for what fits your budget. The Straight Jacket weighs 7.6 lbs – three pounds less than the Club Glove option – and thanks to its construction, it won’t be quite as durable. But since it’s a bit lighter, you can pack some extra shoes in. The bag has the same protective features – reinforced base, padded top, secure zippers – as the other bags, but it’s definitely less structured.

Side note: For any travel bag you choose, we recommend getting a Stiff Arm, made by Club Glove. This product is dead simple, but will add another layer of protection to you clubs. It’s an adjustable aluminum rod with a plastic head that you put in your bag alongside your tallest club. It acts as shield for your driver whenever the bag inevitably gets slung around and lands on its top throughout the course of your trip. Yes, it’s $30 for something that looks silly and seems inconsequential. But you’ll appreciate it when your $500 driver makes it to the course in one piece.
Maneuverability (10 points) -How easy is it to load and unload the bags from the car? How easy is it to move through the airport? We closely examined the design of the wheels, the handle placement, as well as the structural base of the bag. Bags that performed poorly were awkward while walking. The top performers are not only easy to walk with but were also able to stand without assistance. Bags that were more stable through the middle section generally performed better.
I am on my third Club Glove… wouldn’t even consider another brand. Never had a club damaged (always use the Stiff Arm). I average 25 plane trips a year with the sticks. These covers last years, outlasting golf clubs and bags. I have tried the SKB hard cases, but they really don’t offer much more protection, they break and are a pain to fit into a rental car frequently. Then it takes up a big patch of real estate in your hotel room…
We’re always fine-tuning the process to make sure we’re collecting the best data possible. Continuing that trend we’ve updated and refined this year’s analysis to bring you the best buying advice possible.

I’m currently gaming a Bridgestone JGR that I got through a promotion WITH MGS. It has a bonded head. I agree that if your Driver etc are adjustable, remove the heads, and insert the shafts adapter down. However, the addition of a Stiff Arm or similar (saw hockey stick shaft here somewhere) is NEVER a bad idea.

Travel bags are meant to protect your gear, including your regular bag, while traveling. They’re not meant to be used as a replacement for the one that you use when you play golf. Some of them are designed to be hard-case luggage, while others are malleable bags that are made from durable material. If you use a travel one only 15 or so times a year, you will have saved yourself hundreds of dollars in club repairs because of how well they work.

Durability (25 points) – To determine durability, we evaluated the stitching of the bag along with the material used. Regardless of what you’re buying, you expect it to last. Travel bags, especially because they’re used so infrequently, need to be durable enough to last several years. Some bags are made of inexpensive materials, while the top performers in this category offer wheels, zippers, buckles, and materials that are built to last.

Cart bags are meant to be attached to the back gas or electric golf carts. They are usually heavier and have minimal or uncomfortable straps as they are not intended for extended carrying. They feature increased storage space for extra accessories, drinks, clothes, etc, while most feature all forward facing pockets that can all be accessed while strapped in. Many, but not all cart bags can be utilized with a push or pull cart.
I agree with all the criteria being used but I would have liked to see another one: Weight. I try to pack as much as possible in my travel bag so it’s important that it is lightweight. I’m sure the Stiff Arm works but being Canadian, I just cut the blade off an old hockey stick and it’s worked so far!
Packing (15 points) – Quite simply how much gear can the bag hold? Many of our testers mentioned that they used their travel bag as extra storage on the flight. With the price of carry-on fees these days, we’re on the same page. The best bags in this category offer room for the necessities, as well as plenty of room for extras.

It comes with the stiff arm as shown in photos. No shoulder strap is included. What you see is exactly what you will receive. Please check my feedback and buy with confidence.
