Also referred to as a tour bag, this is the top-tier bag used by pros in tournaments, large and able to showcase branding. These bags are heavy – meant to be carried by a caddy or strapped in a cart – and provide the most storage of any bag to fit in rain gear, extra clothing, an umbrella, food, drink, and plenty of balls. If you will be playing in tournaments or just need more storage than the average player, this is the bag for you.
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.
Hard bags are made of a tough, high-end waterproof material. Soft bags are made of a Cordura material with water-resistant nylon, 200 Denier polyester, or some other material that takes a beating. Both the hard cases and the soft versions are made to prevent damage from being thrown around by airport baggage handlers and are approved by the Transit Security Administration.
Bought this new and used for one trip. Heavy duty black material is very resilient and shows no signs of wear. This thing rolls nicely and provides tons of extra room for whatever you may want to bring. Internal straps hold everything tight and external clips and adjustable straps help to really hold everything tight. The guy I took the trip with had a cheaper bag and he had his handle ripped off while this one has no damage. Bid with confidence
Nice preowned condition with some typical signs of use. This bag has some in embroidery as shown in the photo. This can be removed as there are several techniques in videos you can watch on how to do it.

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.
Protection (45 points) – Your golf clubs are a significant investment. A travel bag then must protect your clubs in every situation. We closely examined the top portion of the travel bag because it is where clubs are the most vulnerable. Manufacturers use a variety of different methods to protect the clubs, but one constant is that poor performers lack coverage on the top and sides of the bag. The bags that provided effective protection do so by combining protective padding with a snug fit.
I’ve been using the A99 hands down the best travel bag. It had a full length 9 in diameter PVC tube as the inner liner. The exterior looks like s normal golf bag. Two full length side pockets fit shoes raingear. Bottom has room for balls etc. Two wheels on bottom and s handle on the top make pulling in easy. It stands up on flat bottom. When you arrive at resort you remove the protective tube shaped head cover and it’s a gold bag you can carry by strap it place on a cart. These easily fit a trunk and weigh the sane as most carry bags. Priced under $200 can
Club Glove’s name exudes confidence. Naming your travel bag “Last Bag” means your customers aren’t going to have to replace this bag for the rest of their golfing life. Granted, the price is $319.99, so it better be resilient. And the Last Bag lives up to the name. It weighs 10.6 lbs on its own, so it feels hearty and strong right out of the box. It’s made out of Cordura water resistant nylon, has YKK zippers and comes with an extra padded handle at the top and bottom. Also, the 2016 model has extra reinforcement on the back of the bag towards the base that was easily strained in older models. For $59, you can buy a “No Questions Asked” warranty, where Club Glove will replace your bag for free if anything happens to it. Otherwise, it has a limited lifetime warranty. Club Glove offers three sizes: Last Bag XL Pro Tour, Last Bag Large Pro and Last Bag Collegiate. Our pick is the Large Pro because the XL Pro Tour is huge and the Collegiate is small. The Large Pro is just right.
No matter what travel bag, I always use the Stiff Arm by Clubglove, the telescoping club protector put in your bag next to your driver. I’ve had two stiff arms ruined by the impact of baggage handling, but my driver survived.

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.
Bought this bag for airplane transport. Thought I would have to buy smaller golf bag but my clubs fit great in my original bag. Some padding on the bag makes me feel more confident my clubs will arrive in one piece. For the money its a great find.

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.
