The 2017 PGA Merchandise Show is coming up in a couple of weeks. One new company which will be showing there for the first time is OUUL. OUUL is a maker of “fashion forward, technically superior bags & accessories.” I have been testing out a couple of great bags from OUUL this summer and fall. Today’s review is the extremely light and easy to carry Super Light Stand Bag, part of the Python Series. Let’s take a test drive.
OUUL Super Light Stand Bag Overview
The goal of this bag is to provide the golfer with a light, easy to carry, convenient, and stylish stand bag. Goal achieved. The Super Light clocks in at only 2.7 pounds. Of course that is a starting weight. Many more pounds may be necessary depending on how many golf balls one must carry to “have enough” to finish a round.
The opening (photo below) of the bag is 9.5 inches, not huge, but the engineering and design of the 5-way top makes club removal and insertion super-easy. The 5-way top also helps with club organization. I have my long clubs like driver and fairway in the top, long irons middle left, mid-irons middle right, wedges and putter on the bottom.
One of the best features of the bag is on top of the bag’s opening. There’s a plastic handle which goes around 3/4 of the bag, with some pretty good clearance to the top. That clearance allows for easy grabbing, carrying, controlling the bag. It also helps protect the clubs inside as well as giving the golfer a good place to hang a towel.
The Super Light features three pockets. First is a large, bag-height pocket for clothes and larger items. Then there’s a smaller bag toward the bottom, about 1/4-1/3 the height of the bag, and then there’s the ball pocket. The ball pocket could hold several dozen balls. I never carry that many but it could. Inside the ball pocket is a 4th “pocket” they don’t mention which can hold some small items like maybe a GPS watch. One critique, the missing soft and fuzzy valuables pocket for a camera or phone. There’s also an insulated beverage sleeve.
I like the large ring on the side. It has plenty of space for hanging various golf accessories like towels, GPS units, golf lasers, and club brushes. Just below the handle is a place for a sharpie type pen. Nice touch.
The dual shoulder strap attaches to the bag in four places and adjusts well. It should result in a comfortable and balanced carry when set correctly.
The base of the bag is flexible and adjusts when the bag is on the ground. Hard to explain this, but it’s a popular design of late in carry/stand bags. The legs are very solid and the base of the bag when set down is very broad and sturdy.
The rain cover is nice and big, with easy velcro straps and four buttons to attach it. See the “snow” photo below.
On The Course
I’ve traveled extensively with this bag in play, even all the way to Morocco. The bag is easy to carry, light, and provides a sharp and classy look. The pockets have plenty of space for all my rain gear and accessories. I really like the top section’s fantastic design and especially the protective handle.
This bag has been a joy to use in many different conditions and environments, even the Christmas Classic (photo below).
The OUUL Super Light Python Series delivers solid quality, very sharp looks, and super smart design.
One last thing to mention is the lack of branding. Notice how the big brand names these days are plastering their logos all over the place on their golf bags? No obnoxious branding on OUUL bags. I dig that.
