Sun Mountain lightweight carry bags are more versatile than ever thanks to the new-for-2011 cart- friendly features that allow the bags to work equally well as golf carry bags or golf cart bags.

Sun Mountain carry bags with cart-friendly features include: Superlight 3.5, Superlight SLX, H2NO, Four 5 and the Zero-G. For the retailer nearest you, call 800-227-9224 or visit

Since creating the first golf bag with built-in legs in the mid-80’s, Sun Mountain has continued to innovate and improve golf bags. For 2011, the Sun Mountain Superlight line of golf bags will include a new cart-friendly bottom designed with a new shape and a re-tooled foot mechanism that will allow the bag to stand straight in a golf cart bag well, rather than be positioned sideways.

A popular bag feature continues to be Sun Mountain’s patented top with a built-in handle that provides a convenient spot to grab when picking the bag up and removing the bag from the shoulder. New for 2011, the bag top now has three hand-holds making it easier to use both hands to lift the bag on and off of a cart. Another new cart-friendly feature is the new leg-lock to secure the golf bag legs while the bag is carted. An additional cart-friendly feature, specific to the Superlight 3.5, is a ‘tunnel’ for the cart strap to pass through to protect the contents of the pocket from being squashed and to allow all pockets to be accessible when the bag is on the cart.

The 2011 golf bags with these new cart-friendly features include the top-selling Superlight 3.5, the Golf Digest Hot List Gold winning Superlight SLX, the waterproof H2NO, the Four 5 offering the only stand bag with individual club dividers, and the Zero-G offering an innovative hip belt that takes the weight of the clubs off of the shoulders.

On top of these new cart-friendly features, technical advancements on the entire Superlight line include: top mounted stand attachment for increased durability and stability, patented Roller Bottom and recessed Y-Spring activator for faster leg action and tight-to-the-bag retraction, triangular non-slip foot pads that resist sinking into grass and sliding on slick surfaces, and a full complement of pockets to include full-length clothing pocket, velour-lined valuable pouch, water bottle pouch, and ball and accessory pockets.

In addition to golf bags, Sun Mountain is dedicated to finding the most innovative fabrics, the latest manufacturing processes, and the best designs to create a line of performance outerwear that protects from rain, wind and cold. Sun Mountain is an officially licensed supplier of outerwear to the PGA TOUR, Champions Tour, Duramed Futures Tour, and Nationwide Tour. The Sun Mountain Speed Cart® and ClubGlider® golf travel bag are leaders in their respective categories.

For over 25 years, Sun Mountain has been designing and manufacturing functional, high-quality, lightweight golf bags for the serious golfer. Sun Mountain is responsible for many industry firsts, including being the first to use backpacking technology to produce a lightweight nylon golf bag, and being the first to develop a stand bag with integral legs.
