Currently ride most of my rounds, but there are a few courses where I walk because the green fee is very expensive, so I try to save a little scratch. One of these courses is very hilly and I'm currently using my big cart bag with my push cart which probably weighs close to 20 pounds total I'd guess. Not super fun to push up the huge hills.

Currently, I am in the market for an "ultra light weight" double strap bag to see if this makes walking a bit easier for me. Looking for a bag maybe 3  pounds or lighter.. So far my research has lead me to the Sun Mountain 2Five, the 3.5LS and the Callaway Hyperlite Zero.

There's a few other options in that 4lb and up range, but I've had a larger stand bag before and it did get a little bit cumbersome in the back 9. I'd really prefer the lightest most durable option available. I'm pretty partial to Sun Mount, but I am open to others.

I have the Sun Mountain 2.5 and, in my opinion, it is the perfect walking bag.  There is plenty of storage space, as long as you aren't looking to pack it like a tour bag.  Many of my friends have purchased the same bag after carrying mine for a hole.

Cheap option that is very light and seems solid is the Wilson Ionix SL. I believe it is around 3 1/2 pounds with a 9" opening and 5 full length dividers

Nope, this is purely for walking a 9 hole course that I play almost every Friday after work. Been doing it with my big cart bag and push cart and it's a real b!tch. I only need room for my clubs (not even all of them... no driver needed, par 3 course), a few balls and maybe 1 bottle of water. All my other weekend rounds that I play I would ride and use my big cart bag.

Check out the sun mountain 2.5+.  Still very lightweight like the 2.5 but with a zippered pocket on the spine and a beverage pocket/pouch.  The straps are also a little more padded than the 2.5.

I should add that I had the 2.5 and the 3.5LS and this bag is a nice blend leaning more towards the 2.5.

My advice is not to give up comfort, convenience or functionality in order to save a pound and a half of total weight. A bag that weighs "2-3/4 pounds" instead of "4-1/4 pounds" sounds like a huge difference. But once you fill it with clubs and balls and what have you it turns into "16 pounds" versus "17-1/2 pounds" which is barely noticeable. A lot of the very, very lightest bags make compromises in various areas to shave down those last few ounces.
Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

Some thoughts ...

Speaking specifically to the bags in question, we looked at both of them earlier this year.  We ended up buying the Callaway since I felt it was better constructed than the Sun Mountain and had better pocket/storage options overall.  My son also liked it better than the SM 2.5, and since he is using it he had at least 50% of the vote.  The SM 2.5+ was not available at the time, but it looks very promising.

Speaking to carrying and walking, there is a huge difference with a lightweight bag and less than a full set of clubs.  You may find that you only need odd (or even) clubs, a handful of tees, half a dozen balls and a glove.  I would recommend carrying a half set for a few rounds and see how you like it.  I typically use 8-10 clubs and often use my pushcart as well.  Walking 9 holes is really easy when you can cut the weight of your bag by 50%.

It's not just the weight though. I've found 'light weight' bags designed more with the walker/carrier in mind than some others, they are less bulky, with better positioned pads/straps.

I have a SM 2.5 and it's an easier carry than any of my other bags I have/have had (Ping Hoofer, Ping Monsoon, SM 3.5LX, Srixon Z Four) the past 4-5 years.
The only bag close to it from a carry POV was the Titleist Stadry 4UP - another 'light weight' option.

Same. I only see it on ebay as a 2018 brand new model, but it's not actually on the SM website.

And to the guys saying not to skip on the weight, while I do agree... for this specific course I probably would only carry between 8 and 10 clubs.
Probably go something like 3w, 3h, 5, 7, 9, GW, LW, P. For the "longer" par 4 (about 320 yards) a good 3w shot leaves me and 7i, which arguably is the longest iron I may need since I can tee off any of these holes with a 3w and be less than 150 yards away on a good shot. One of the par 3's is about 165 so that's another 7i, the other 2 are less than 130 yards. I could probably ditch the 5i totally and add an 8i and/or PW.

I really do want as light as possible as hole 1, 2 and 3 have a combined change in height of probably 130 feet. However I don't want cheap materials and for the zippers to rip out after a few months. I'd also like it to be able to carry a full set comfortably because there's 1 other course I play where I'll walk but I do require the full set as it's a regular lay out.

I've got the 3.5 LS because I wanted the bigger opening at the top (I have midsize grips on all my clubs).  I love the bag and walk most of my rounds.

I have multiple playing partners that have the 2.5 LS and love it as well.  I think it mostly comes down to how much space you want in your carry bag - both are great bags for sure.

I agree.  I've been playing 5, 7,9,SW, Driver, 3W, and putter in a Jones bag.  7 clubs in a light bag is a full kit for me.

The Sun Mountain X-strap Sunday bag is even lighter than the Jones.  I've pretty much worn mine out since 2012, walking exclusively.  It's still usable, a very good bag.

Quick google search shows only 1 divider... meh. I'd like at least a 4 way; 1 for woods, 1 for long irons, 1 for short irons the other for wedges and putter.

Actually, off topic but that leads me to ask: How do you actually organize a 4 way? I assume it would be split into woods/long iron/short iron/wedges&putter? I've always used 14 way bags because I'm sot of OCD.

Works for me cause when I walk only bring 10 clubs or less. Woods, putter on top irons bottom. As for four way would guess what you said goes. Most I ever used is three way, woods and putter, irons, wedges.

2.5 has been great for me
Easy to carry all 14 clubs without tangle
Great bag
only issue for me has been the durability, so I'm looking forward to the 2.5+

My advice is not to give up comfort, convenience or functionality in order to save a pound and a half of total weight. A bag that weighs "2-3/4 pounds" instead of "4-1/4 pounds" sounds like a huge difference. But once you fill it with clubs and balls and what have you it turns into "16 pounds" versus "17-1/2 pounds" which is barely noticeable. A lot of the very, very lightest bags make compromises in various areas to shave down those last few ounces.

I agree. I used a SM 2.5, Stitch SL1 (3.5 lbs), Titleist Players 4 (5 lbs) and now my Jones Utility Bag (5lbs). I preferred the Jones, Titleist, 2.5 then SL1 in that order. Jones looks awesome, has Uber comfy straps and by the time I get a few balls, small water, sunglasses and extra hat there is to me, no perceptible difference in carrying weight over a round (I carry 12 to 13 clubs).

2.5 has been great for me
Easy to carry all 14 clubs without tangle
Great bag
only issue for me has been the durability, so I'm looking forward to the 2.5+
how long did yours last? What's the exact issue?

Ripped right where the strap goes in to the bag
SM was good to work with
They tried to repair it once, it ripped again, so they replaced it

Sun Mountain Swift X. I got a couple from RBG for $40 and $30. Second I was a bit inebriated. Traded it for a putter.

The Swift X and the very, very similar bag they used to make for Titleist as the Ultralight was the best compact carry bag ever made, hands down. I was so sad when I wore mine out.

Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

Yeah I see Titleist Ultralite's on ebay for like half the price of SM bags. I'm very partial to SM, I've had 2 of their bags... still have one. So good as far as quality and workmanship goes. I'd be willing to try a Titleist bag though as I am always being budget conscious.

How much do they weigh? I assume nothing can beat the 2.5 as far as weight goes.

Here is the Titleist ultralight I'm looking at:

Just be careful if it's the final version (2015?) of the Titleist Ultralite before they went to the "Players 4" and "Players 5" models. There was one Ultralite that was not at all like a Swift-X. I think the Swift-X based Titleist Ultralites ended in 2013 or 2014.

If the ones on the 'Bay are the non-SM ones then half the price is about right.

Check my link if you can.... It says "new" so I assume it's a close out 2016. I searched swift-x, too... but only one thing came up:
http://www.ebay.com/...4cAAOSwh81Zni2E

It's only got 1 divider though which I find a little odd and clunky. I suppose that's because it's assumed you may only carry 8-10 clubs, which I very well would probably do. However, I want the option to carry all 14 and still have it be comfortable and functional.

Actually that link shows me a used Swift-X bag, not a new bag. And the seller feedback includes complaints about used golf bags not being in promised condition!

Oh, right, yes. The new ones were from the other link above for the Titleist ultralight. Yeah I don't think I'd go for that particular swift-X.
