There may be a variety of cool gear within the golf tools world that doesn’t all the time match neatly into Most Wished Assessments or Purchaser’s Guides. You continue to need to know the way it performs. In our We Tried It sequence, we put gear to the take a look at and allow you to know if it really works as marketed.
What We Tried:
Sew Golf journey gear. Sew makes a plethora of journey baggage. I attempted a number of together with the Multiuse Traveler Bag (MUT), Birdie Bag, Final Garment Bag and the Dopp Package.
Who Tried It
Connor. Director of Tender Items Testing and resident sneakerhead. I consider golf is healthier with a pair of cool footwear and cozy joggers. I’m nonetheless lugging round baggage from my junior highschool days so it’s about dang time I improve my baggage repertoire.
Multiuse Traveler Bag (MUT)
This isn’t my first rodeo with the Sew Golf MUT. This bag was examined as part of our Finest Golf Journey Luggage purchaser’s information.
In the event you’re searching for a bag that may do all of it, it’s essential take into account the MUT. With a single zip, it transforms from a compact curler duffle right into a full-fledged journey bag.
There are three foremost areas I take a look at when evaluating a golf journey bag: transportation, ease of use and safety.
A golf journey bag ought to have wheelbase. Ideally, this wheelbase would have 4 wheels or, on the very least, spinners to make it extra maneuverable. The Sew Golf MUT has solely two wheels. That stated, they have been loads passable for wheeling my heavy bag to the airport counter and across the resort the place I used to be staying.
EASE OF USE:
After I take a look at ease of use, I’m actually taking a look at placement of carry handles. Is the bag simple to carry out and in of vehicles or shuttles? What about grabbing it from the bags declare? The Sew Golf MUT has a pleasant collection of carry handles, each on the aspect and high of the bag, to make lifts a breeze.
What about safety? My foremost concern with the Sew MUT was lack of padding. Whereas the highest part doesn’t really feel notably shock-resistant, all of my golf equipment arrived in a single piece. In fact, I took the mandatory precautions to make sure they weren’t broken. A journey bag can solely accomplish that a lot, in any case. It ought to actually be your final line of protection. Make good use of the torsion bar, take away heads out of your woods … blah, blah, blah. You understand the drill.
If I had one main gripe concerning the Sew Golf MUT, it was the loading course of. The sidewalls are extraordinarily flimsy so it may possibly’t rise up by itself. Loading my golf bag into the journey bag was tougher than it wanted to be. Bolstered sidewalls would have performed the job right here, though that will most likely take away from the curler duffle performance.
I’d have favored to see some good exterior pockets, too. It does have one semi-large one on the high however nothing on the perimeters or rear.

Let’s begin off with a bang. The Sew Golf Birdie Bag is the carry-on champ. This backpack/cooler bag/carry-on is so darned versatile.
A strong airport backpack must have superb pockets and storage capabilities. Between the 5 exterior pockets, massive interior compartment and the removeable laptop computer sleeve (held in place with magnets), I had loads of room for all the pieces.
The massive storage compartment is accessed by means of the highest of the bag, one thing I’m a fan of. This made it simple to stack my garments, headphones, Dopp Package and laptop computer and saved all the pieces organized. The backpack straps are snug sufficient and the soft-touch particulars on the zippers make them very easy to make use of.
I used my Birdie Bag as my private merchandise and it match completely below the seat of the tiny CRJ 900 jet I used to be in. It’s large enough that it really works as your sole carry-on merchandise however sufficiently small to tag alongside together with your carry-on duffle (see the Final Garment Bag) as a private merchandise. As with every baggage, test together with your airline for private merchandise allowances.

Final Garment Bag
The Sew Golf Final Garment Bag often is the piece de resistance of the whole journey assortment. Man, is that this duffle bag versatile. In the event you haven’t sensed the theme already, Sew is phenomenal at getting additional efficiency and worth out of singular merchandise.
A curler duffle that turns right into a journey bag? Verify. A backpack that may also be a cooler? Completely. Now, this sweet-looking duffle that converts right into a garment bag? Signal me up.
The very best half concerning the Final Garment Bag is the position of the opening flap. As a result of the zippers could be totally unzipped, the whole bag opens for simple stacking and packing. I’ve by no means match this a lot right into a duffle with minimal effort.
So far as my consumer expertise within the airport, it was nearly too massive to slot in the overhead house on my small CRJ 900 flight however it did match. The carry strap may have extra padding (it may possibly really feel just a little stiff after time). I additionally would have cherished another exterior pocket, both on the entrance or again of the bag. All in all, although, the Final Garment Bag is a beast of a carry-on bag.

Maybe essentially the most ignored merchandise in Sew Golf’s journey repertoire is the Dopp Package. I’ve by no means owned a pleasant toiletry package earlier than (I’ve used a $5 clear toiletry bag from Walmart for the previous six years) however now I can lastly see what I’ve been lacking.
The 2 separate zippered pouches are genius. It allowed me to separate my toiletries as I noticed match. Tablets and drugs in a single aspect, deodorant and different toiletry gadgets within the different. This little man holds rather a lot, too. I had loads of room for all of my stuff. My favourite half? It’s the right measurement to slip into the Birdie Bag. (It’s like they have been designed for use collectively!)
Don’t overlook the Dopp Package. I’m telling you, it’s good!
