Hey WRXers,

I'm flying to Scottsdale from the east coast for a week-long golf trip. I currently use a Maxfli Sunday Stand Bag but I'm afraid the bag is too small to securely fit in my Ogio Straight Jacket.  Should I buy a bigger cart bag that will securely fit in the Straight Jacket.  

Thanks,
R

Remove the heads from your driver/fairway and pack them in your suitcase.  And/or get a stiff arm.

I travel a fair bit and these two precautions have served me well.

Above information is good info. Here is what I have to offer. I have used the Ogio Straightjacket for nearly a year now. I have found it to be a very good soft case and in the same class as the Club Glove Burst Proof and less costly. I have a Sun Mountain 9" stand bag and it fits fine. Also, there is a retaining strap in the Straightjacket to secure your bag, so don't worry about it moving around. When I got mine, I went to a fabric store and bought some 2" foam. I cut it so that I could line the bag with it for further protection. Also, I have owned the Club Glove Stiff Arm and the BagBoy Backbone. I found the Backbone to be far more durable (But I fly my clubs about 25-30 times a year!). Either should be fine. Removing your Fly-Z heads and placing them in your suitcase is a great idea too, especially if your driver is 45"+. I did that for a long time and have since stopped, but you can't be too careful. BTW, I fly predominately Southwest due to bags fly free!! Others nail you for a fee which can sometimes be excessive.

Enjoy your trip!!

Assuming the travel bag fits the actual golf bag, it should be fine. I have a very similar Ogio travel bag and I fit my full sized cart bag in there and all my clubs. However, I did have to take my driver head off, and I opted to remove the 3w and wrap it in a towel instead of having it jammed very tightly in there.

I’ve never taken the heads off either. I group the woods closely around the stiff arm and go with them that way. So far I’ve haven’t had any problems.

I take zero precautions and in 100s of trips (not an exaggeration) Iíve never had any issue with a soft sided bag. TSA takes them out most times anyway so I donít know why people bother with doing extra stuff. .

Does the inside of the straight jacket have straps that you can snug your bag down with? Add some extra towels. You should be fine.

Make sure it fits. I personally travel with a club glove. They use to call it the burst proof but now i think its called a collegiate size, same bag though. I pair that with a stiff arm and I'm good to go. Never had any problems and i feel better knowing that if anything happens to my bag, its under warranty.

Hello,

I'm back from Scottsdale.  We had a great time played Talking Stick, Papago, and Starfire.  Thanks for all the feedback.  I thought I would give a recap of my experience.  I ended up packing my clubs with the following gear and had zero issues.  No damage at all!  Thanks again for the great advice.
  • Bag - Maxfli Sunday Stand Bag
  • Clubs - Irons, 3 hybrid, driver, putter
  • Bag Boy Golf- Backbone Travel Cover Support
  • Thick Synthetic Leather Golf Iron Head Covers (so my irons wouldn't bang together)
  • Body Pillow  20" W x 54" L (wrapping around the top of my bag around the 3 hybrid, driver)
  • Travel Bag - Ogio Straight Jacket Travel Golf Bag
  • Total Weight - 35 lbs

I’m just going to say that this is absolutely insane. More power to you but I can say the same thing (no damage to any clubs ever) with absolutely zero effort. None, zero, zilch, ever, 29 countries and even more states!  And, I might not be the most frequent commercial air traveler here but if I’m not I’d bet any amount of money I’m in the top 1%. I’d never travel with clubs if I had to do this kind of craziness. :lol:

Again, you gotta do what you gotta do but it is definitely not required. In all seriousness, glad you enjoyed your trip.
