Rover bag quick take.
Pros:
* 2+ lbs lighter than Utility bag.
* holds 14 clubs easily with no grabbing
* has all the pockets of the utility bag meaning: we can be ocd in organizing our stuff. Range tokens in this pocket, wallet/keys here, balls here, tees ...well just don't load it up or you may defeat the purpose.
* double straps are comfy, easy carry.
* looks great.
* always positive comments on all my Jones bags and this one is no exception.

Cons:
* being so purdy with no legs, I hate to lay this one down.  A classic like the players series is meant to hit the ground. This one I found myself at times wanting to prop it up on something.
* you can easily overload it
* made me wish that my Greyson Utility bag was this light ( guess that'd be a SM2.5+ but they are so homely IMHO)

If you don't mind carrying a light, good looking modern bag, I would not hesitate to get one!

awesome, thanks for the review. Do you find yourself using the two straps apposed to just single strapping it?
After using my players series it took a few holes before I realized I had two straps :-).  The bag footprint and straps are similar to my utility bag ( which is obviously heavier) so, to have all those features built into the Rover was pleasant as I really like my Utility bag but appreciate less weight.

ahh just need to sell my extra putter and my bag so I can get one.. was hoping for a 4th of July sale but that sadly didn't happen. Post some updates as you feel because I think you're the only one on the site with one!

Semi-rigid, a bit of slouching but not bothersome. Tangle is non existent with 14 clubs when compared to the Utility bag or ping.

I really dig the look of the Rover bag.  However, from a pure functionality perspective can it really compete with a good ultralight stand bag?  Isn't bending over constantly a pain?  Do you have to use a zipper to get to a water bottle?  I'd love to be persuaded to give it a shot.  I have a 2.5+ now that from a weight and functionality perspective is a 10/10, but the Rover is definitely a better looking bag.

i have a TM flextech stand bag i've used for the last 1.5 years -- i'll give a review once i use my rover for a few rounds, would that help??

it got delivered today, playing this weekend and basically all next week.

played again today this time took a cart with the bag -- will say this -- it looks ridiculous on the back of a cart while the other playing partner has a legit 14-way stand bag on there lol

so, i have it situated this way:

-in the two-way divider, i have all irons in the low opening, and the driver, 3w and putter in the top opening.
-in the black pouch i have gloves, yardage book cover, coaches tape and snacks/NuuN tablets (i haven't put snacks in there yet since well, i haven't played and needed them lol)
-in the cooler pocket i have balls only (largest pocket that's easily accessible from the 'top' while carrying should you need a fresh one)
-in the side see-thru mesh pocket i usually keep my keys, wallet and watch - in a seamus drawstring bag thing; and my phone
-in the first zipper pocket (valuables pocket), i have a soft bag that has markers, divot tools, lighter and cigar cutter
-in the second zipper pocket i have tees
-in the black pocket on the other side -- i have nothing. haven't figured out what to put there lol
-in the slot inside the mesh pocket on the side i usually keep a water bottle that i refill all the time

I have one of these and only thing I didn't plan out was what to do when it rains. Anyone recommend a good rain cover for clubs in one of these that is light and stores in the black bottom pouch?

In my state open it was supposed to rain today and tomorrow - went with my TM flextech simply due to more space and didn't want it laying on the ground getting soaked.

so for those interested, I was caught in a downpour over the weekend and played through it. Bag on ground, etc.

The bag came out fine after it dried. No stains or signs that I was in a rain storm.

The bottom pocket with the velvet liner had moisture in it. The side pocket up top held up. Clubs were completely soaked. I'm actually surprised Jones doesn't make or sell a rain hood you can use and bring with you on days that call for rain. My other option was to switch out my bag, but if we are going to call it "Utility Rover" I would imply that it should be usable in crap conditions.

Played my first round with my utility rover. I ended up riding but I carried my bag a couple holes when either my playing partner or I hit one way off line to save time. So far I really like the amount of pockets and pocket placement. It just fits with what I bring to the golf course. The only downside so far is that the clubs definitely tangle up in the bag but I can tolerate that.

Also, I like that I can full dork mode and iron on patches to the nylon material on the  bag to match my Disney head covers. I put a Star Wars patch on there and I’m waiting for a couple more things to come in.

Has anybody actually weighed their Rover and is it a legit 3.2lb with both straps attached?  Just wondering how it can be just marginally heavier than the Players which has a single carry strap and less pockets

Yes, I'm wondering the same thing. Is it significantly heavier than a Ping Moonlite? Also seems a bit sturdier than other Sunday bags out there, would that be accurate? Thanks.
