Series: Golf Buzz
Published: Wednesday, January 15, 2014 | 3:03 p.m.
Sun Mountain's top-selling Three 5 carry bag is new, improved and completely redesigned for 2014.
This year, the Three 5 uses the new, patent-pending Auto-FitTM Dual Strap System which is easy to get on and off, easy to adjust and works well as a single strap for short carries.
The Three 5 was designed with carrying your bag in mind and weighs just four pounds. Three 5 is in golf shops now with a retail price of $189.
The new-for-2014 Auto-Fit Dual Strap System joins other popular features of the Three 5. These features include Sun Mountain's patented built-in top handle that offers a convenient spot to grab when picking the bag up and setting it down, and a cart-friendly bottom with leg retention system for those rounds that you ride.
Three 5 has a 9.5" top with four, full-length club dividers. The bag has six pockets including a full-length clothing pocket, velour-lined valuables pocket, and a beverage pouch. Three 5 also features a new lift-assist handle built into the lower spine pocket.
For the south-paws there is a left-handed Three 5 available in black only and there is a women's version of the Three 5 available with Sun Mountain’s E-Z Fit Dual Strap System.
Additionally, Sun Mountain has licensing agreements with nearly 50 of the nation's top colleges and universities and is offering a College-Licensed Three 5 with school colors and logos. The college-licensed Three 5 features a 9", four-way top with full-length dividers, six pockets including full-length clothing pocket, beverage pouch and velour-lined valuables pouch, cart-friendly bottom and Sun Mountain’s X-Strap Dual Strap System. Retail price is $199.
