Lightweight golf bags
Lots of companies have their own light golf bags with fancy names such as “Hyper Lite” to encourage you to think it’s the lightest bag – But who’s really is? We’ve gone through Amazons best sellers and the manufactures bags for 2018 to bring you the most comprehensive guide to golf carry bags.
What is the lightest golf bag?
These are ordered by weight and include specs for each bag to help you buy the right bag for you! All of these bags are available on Amazon, so there’s no hunting around the store trying to find the exact one. We’ve done a top 2 of the lightest as well as our recommended bag – that combines lightweight with functionally.
The lightest golf bag – Tangkula Golf 1.58 kg
This scored as the lightest golf bag we could find and is a massive 0.32kg lighter than the alternatives. What this bag has in weight advantage is a little lost in function as its only has a 4-way divider and 3 pockets – but that will suit some golfers, we just prefer more dividers. You can see the latest price on Amazon below and check out the bag and its reviews. If its lightweight that you are after then this is by far the lightest bag on the market
Our recommended bag – Wilson Staff Hybrix– 2.2 kg
From all our research into bags, we’ve found that the Wilson Staff bag is the one that combines a lightweight bag with the functionality the modern golfer is used to. It’s an excellently designed bag that has 14 dividers in the top and 6 pockets to use. This is the perfect light golf carry bag.
- 2 large pockets for accessories
- 1 full-length pocket
- 1 ball and tee pocket
- 1 valuables pocket
- 1 quick access drink pocket
Here’s how the club dividers look
The bag comes with a twin strap for easy carrying when its full of clubs –
All around its a top quality bag from Wilson Staff.
Now it’s on to the best of the rest
No 2 – Callaway Golf Hyperlite 2017 – 1.9 kg
Next in the light stakes was the Callaway Hyperlite golf bag, this is an excellent bag for the weight and has 4 club dividers but 7 pockets. At less than 2 kg its no surprise its called the “hyper lite”. It comes in a range of colors with the titanium and orange being our favorite and all around it’s a really stylish bag.
A range of colors available
No 3 – Wilson Golf profile bag – 1.9kg
Another entry in the top 10 for Wilson golf and this matches the weight of the Hypre lite from Callaway. As a comparison, it has one more divider but 4 fewer pockets which is why we rated is as no 3 compared to the Callaway. You can see it here on Amazon –
No 4 – Eagle Superlight – 1.95
From the less known golfing brand Eagle the super light just gets in under the 2kg mark which is still very light and very impressive. It has numerous positive reviews on Amazon from its users. Its red color is quite distinctive!
No 5 – Srixon Golf Z-Four Stand Bag – 2kg
This is probably my favorite bag in terms of design with the urban camouflage option a real standout design –
There are lots more colour choices available that are less stand out (see the choices here).
I come with an angled 4 way top to make it easier to get your clubs in and out of the bag and has 8 strategically laid out pockets – including the usual ball pockets and valuables pocket. It even has an “insulated hydration pocket” – or pocket that keeps your drinks cool as we’d call it!
The straps are designed with a CSS (Comfort, suspension, support) system to balance the bag on 2 shoulders and reduce the pressure of carrying the bag for a full round.
