Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

I love how Sun Mountain positioned the water bottle slot at an angle for easy access while carrying the bag, yet keeping the bottle upright when the bag is in stand mode.
With the usual basics of a walker, the 4.5 LS is SHOCKINGLY lightweight. Without actually looking at it, you wouldn’t believe you have a bag of this size on your back.
The cart strap is cleverly designed to not block the side pockets, while keeping the bag secure on your cart, and the 10.5’’ wide top is more than enough to shelter fourteen individual-full length club dividers.
Other wonderful features added to the carry bags from Sun Mountain are design elements that make them more compatible with golf carts. The cart strap pass through ensures the 4.5 LS doesn't go anywhere when strapped in and allows full access to all the pockets on the bag. T
Dynamic rainhood included with the bag for protecting clubs in lousy weather.
Another reason that makes buying this bag worth it is the quality of materials used in the making. The ‘no compromise on quality’ makes it a highly durable one.
This highly stable bag has high-tensile triangular aluminum legs with non-slipping pads at the bottom. Additionally, the Rain Hood will keep this multitasking bag ready to use in any condition.
It comes with a strap for you to carry around on your shoulder, has a cart strap feature to secure with the cart and leg-lock system.
The Sun Mountain 4.5 LS has 26″ legs with a spread between feet of 22.5″. The bag also has a patented roller bottom leg mechanism and Y-spring leg activator for firm leg action. The legs have triangular, non-slip foot pads to resist slipping and sinking.
There is also air flow hip pad and lumbar support to increase the rate of ventilation and top-mounted leg mechanism for stability.
The cart strap pass-through runs behind the large clothing pocket so the bag can be secured to a cart without limiting the pocket as well. This is ideal as most golfers like to jump on a cart from time to time.
We love that the bag comes with a strategically designed lumbar support and an air-flow hip pad for maximum ventilation.

What reviewers didn't like

Pricier bag but the bells and whistles are worth it for a premium golf bag.
The scorecard is not easily accessible nor is the pen while walking.
Bulky design
The cooler pocket only holds two cans
We felt that the stitching of the pockets could have been better
