Durable and Lightweight Golf Bags by Ogio

Ogio Golf BagsBags, in general, need to be light and durable for comfort and support. They must suffice the need for carrying purposes. More so, for golf bags wherein it is expected to carry heavy and rigid golf equipment within itself. The description for durability won’t need any further discussion. But, the concept of ‘light’ in terms of bags must be limited since extremely light bags may cause the bag to fall apart.

Having these factors in mind, Ogio recently launched the company’s Endurance Lightweight Collection. The product line includes four styles for men, two for women, and several carry bags. All these provide the best combination of light weightiness and durability.

Ogio’s Global Vice President, Tom Gocke said, “We really try to walk the line between still being very quality and lightweight. It’s become an art figuring out how to build lightweight without giving up tensile strength.”

The collection used upgraded nylon threads which are lightweight but durable. “We went to nylon instead of a poly for these bags, and what we found is the strength and durability per weight is excellent on this material. It’s actually the same material they use for making parachutes. We figure that if people stake their life on materials not tearing we’re probably OK getting away with it on a golf bag,” he added further.

Gocke assures customers that the company uses thin but high tensile nylon threads which will not break at the line of stitching. Carry bags are available as light as 3.6 pounds while cart bags go less than five pounds.

The Endurance Lightweight Collection ranges from $150 to $200.
