Ogio - The Perfect Cart Bag!
August 27, 2014
I really labored over this purchase for weeks and decided to pull the trigger when RBG offered an additional 18% discount and free shipping.
I have played three rounds with this bag and have not been disappointed. Too many features to count, I could write a book on the utility of this bag, kudos to the Ogio designers!. So, here it goes. Unpacked my OB (Ogio Bag) after patiently waiting one week (free shipping) for my new bag to arrive. The box was a little beat up but my OB was in mint condition! I grabbed the bag by its very robust molded carry-handle, set down the bag and began transferring my gear from my old stand bag to my new OB. This is what I found:
The AMAZING features:
Retractable ball compartment --Perfect for immediate access. Spring loaded but secure!
Cart Strap - UNIQUE! A rubber strap which secures the bag to the electric cart and provides additional security. Keeps the bag from turning.
Club Protection System - Separates clubs and reduces "rattling" and contact. the SILENCER/TOP feature is wonderful. Also makes the clubs easier to find/locate!
SILENCER BOTTOM - Located at the bottom of the bag, this feature secures the handle to nearly eliminate noise and club contact.
The REALLY GOOD:
Robust carry handle
Large Towel clip - I also clip my GPS to this feature using the GBS belt-clip
See-through bottom "hoof" - really cool and shows off the Silencer feature
Molded pocket - adds protection
Cart strap pass-through slides underneath the pockets! Difficult to explain, but really cool design.
Waterproof pocket with water resistant zipper
Zippers run really fast and clean.
Pockets Pockets Pockets - You will never run out of space.
Shoulder strap - could be a bit stronger. But, hey, it's a cart bag!
Umbrella feature - A bit wimpy for a cart bag
Rain Cover - Average. Nothing special.
Weight is average for a cart bag - Heavier than my stand bag and a bit heavier than most fabric cart bags but there are a lot of really cool plastic features that add to the weight.
Pros:The perfect bag.
Great price and discount through RBG, no shipping, no tax.
All the features without being a heavy TOUR bag.
