altMISSOULA, Montana — The new Sun Mountain 2Five golf bag is now shipping. 2Five is the lightest, full-featured bag on the market weighing in at the scant two and a half pounds. Sun Mountain reduced weight by using carbon-fiber legs, high strength-to-weight plastics, and ultra-lightweight and durable fabrics like those used in mountaineering tents. 2Five is offered in 11 different colors at $219.99.

To put 2 ½ lbs. into perspective, that’s about the same weight as two wedges, or a pair of golf shoes, or three cans of a soft-drink. When you lift up the 2Five, it’s more like lifting off as the bag seems to launch off the ground.
