Our best golf stand bag 2021/2022 rankings is our first golf bag article using our new enhanced methodology. Using the data we collected during last years bag reviews as a statistical baseline we remove potential biases. This allows us to focus completely on the golf bags price-quality ratio. Now not only are we able to rank each golf bag but also tangibly hold it in comparison to its alternatives on the market.
Interested in knowing how are scores are calculated? Take a look at our best golf bags for 2021/2022 master ranking list. There you can find the methodology explained in more depth and also see all of the golf bags we have reviewed across all sub-categories in 2021/2022.
While compiling our best golf stand bag options for 2021/2022 we remained consistent with our new 2021/2022 ranking lists approach. We prioritised the gear that came to market in the latter part of 2021 and beyond. Since this is the first time we are transitioning to the new approach the timeline may be a little imperfect. What is for sure is these bags where not considered in last years golf bag rankings.
Remember our new scoring methodology does not hand out 98%. It just is not possible.
There are always tradeoffs which effect the balance of the equation. Paying an overly high price for more features may create mathematical limitation on the number of points/percentile the 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, last year’s reviews generated a ton of data. The data specifically relevant for our 2021/2022 golf stand bags baseline is:
- Average RRSP: $227.66
- Average weight: 4.83 lbs
- Average no. of pockets: 6.96
- Average no. of colors: 5.15
This gives you a quick view on how your bag relates to the alternatives on the market. Keep in mind there are additional features and characteristics that are included in the final scoring and ranking.
As with all of the 2021/2022 sub-category rankings lists, we will limit it to our top 3 positions. As new products come to market of course the list may change so you might want to check back in from time to time. What we do hope is that you will profit from our new methodology in finding the best golf bag that fits your needs.
Fastfold 7″ Stand bag Orbiter Rain Dry
The Fastfold 7″ Stand bag Orbiter Rain Dry’s score of 73.5% places it amongst the very top golf bags across all golf bag segments that we have so far tested.
While many golfers may not be aware of the Fastfold brand it has seen rapid growth in the last years. Originating in the Netherlands, its name is becoming synonymous for high end products at very reasonable price points

- 3.77 lbs Weight
- 7.0” top
- New ultralite top and bottom

The high ranking was realized by its extremely affordable price and favorable weight that both rated at the very top side of the market.
