The best golf carry bags 2021/2022 ranking is our next set of reviews using the new enhanced scoring methodology. Carry bags, often also called Sunday bags, are generally used by golfers when heading to the driving range or when using less than a full set of clubs and walking the golf round.
We used the data collected during last year’s 200+ bag reviews to come up with a bias proof rating methodology. While the carry bag market is a smaller segment than for example carry bags there still are numerous options available. And plenty to be able to formulate the baselines we use for our comparative scoring methodology. We are now completely focused on the price-quality ratio the bag holds in comparison its alternatives on the market.
To avoid repetition, we won’t go into great detail here on the calculation method. If you are interested in how the scores are derived then take a look at Best golf bags for 2021/2022 master ranking list where it is explained in more depth. There you can also see all of the golf bags we have reviewed across all sub-categories in 2021/2022.
Remember our new scoring methodology does not hand out 98%. It just is not possible.
There are always tradeoffs such as paying a high price for more features that create mathematical limitations on the number of points/percentiles each golf bag is able to obtain. What we can assure you is that whatever the score the bag, the top ranked bags will provide you with the best price-quality ratio.
As mentioned in last year’s reviews we collected a ton of data. The data specifically relevant for our baselines for carry bags was:
- Average RRSP: $111.00
- Average weight: 2.60 lbs
- Average no. of pockets: 3.6
Under the new format, all of our 2021/2022 rankings lists are dynamic and limited to our top 3 choices. Here is no different. As new products come to market of course the list may change. If you check in from time to time you will see how the rankings evolve.
Many golfers use a carry bag as their second golf bag. This being the case finding an equitable price-quality ratio may be even more imortant. Many might accept paying a little extra for their everyday bag, but less are likely to want too for their B option. If this is the case for you, then our new set of rankings may be exactly the right place for you to start looking.
Mizuno BR-D2 Carry Bag
Mizuno’s BR-D2 Carry Bag is the second bag their new golf bag lineup to appear on one of our 2021/2022 rankings lists. And at the time of this review its 62.25% sits in the top position.
Don’t let the score fool you. Carry bags are generally limited by physical constraints restricting the number of features they manage to include. In the case of the BR-D2 Carry Bag, it actually is slightly larger and pushes the boundaries of being included in the Sunday bag category. This has given it some big advantages over its competition. Here we choose to reward innovation as opposed to punish straying from the norms.
- USD 170 RRSP
- 3.13 lbs
- Manual Open/Close Mini Stand Legs
- Water-Resistant Coated Underbelly
- Removable Mod Pouch with quick release clips
- Dual Shoulder Straps with 4 Points of Adjustment
- Loop Velcro Patch to attach glove
- Insulated Drink Pocket
- 9 Total pockets
- 2 x Grab Handles
- Umbrella Holder
- 4-Way Top Cuff
- 2 Full Length Dividers
The Mizuno BR-D2 Carry Bag was able to achieve its top-rated status by pushing the limits of a carry bag to the edge without falling off it. By doing so it has packed itself with features and capabilities not found in most Sunday bags, such as a 14-club capacity, and yet remains as comfortable and light as its best competition. If the pricing was not comparatively more than the “average” carry bag it might almost be perfect.
RUTHNISSI Golf carry Stand Bag
The RUTHNISSI Golf carry Stand Bag might be as close to the stereotypical carry bag one has in mind when they hear someone say “Sunday golf bag”. And in this case that is a great thing and is why it comes in as one of the top rated 2021/2022 carry bags at 61.25%.
