Nike Golf announced the release of a new golf bag Thursday -- the Nike Sport Lite.

The Nike Sport Lite, weighing in at less than four pounds, is Nike's lightest carry bag to date.

Features on the Sport Lite include Nike's proprietary EquaFlex revolving double strap system, which distributes bag weight evenly across the shoulders through an ergonomic design that brings more comfort to the often tiring task of carrying a bag around the course for hours at a time. A five-way, two full-length divider system with putter well maximizes club visibility and organization.

Six fleece-lined functional pockets, including a full length apparel pocket, provide enough space for athletes to be prepared on the course without creating extra bulk. The Sport Lite also has an integrated GPS loop, pen sleeve and glove patch; custom grip leg end-caps; and a matching rain hood.

The Nike Sport Lite comes in six different color schemes and will be available at retail Nov. 1 at $155.
