I have a Ping Hoofer which I love but I've been walking 9 holes a few times a week with only 11 clubs in the bag and am now seriously considering a Ping Moonlite or something similar.  Does anyone have any experience with this bag?  

The Sun Mountain 2.5 seems like a popular choice but I'm not going to drop $200+ for a carry bag.  The Moonlite is only $90.  


Thanks for any help!

Yep, great idea.  As long as you don't mind not having a stand this is the best modern minimalist carry bag at a good price.  There are classier options out there like a MacKenzie Walker, but at 10X the price.  .

You canít go wrong with a Ping moonlite, Iíve been using them as summer bags for over 25 years and Iíve never worn one out yet. I still have my original Ping Moon which was really basic but simply bullet proof, it still gets out occasionally. The modern versions are more refined with a 2 way divider top, more pockets and a rubber underbelly perfect for early morning games with dew on the grass. Not ideal in the rain but well worth getting for fair weather golf. You wonít be disappointed.

Love mine... like the older single strap model. The strap sticks up in the air so you don't have to bend over and pick it up. Smart engineering! I sold my Jones and  went back to the Moonlite.

How does the Moonlight compare to the Titleist Premium Carry Bag?

I've been using the Moonlite for a month or so now and am really happy with it.  The bag is extremely lightweight but is also very well made.  Feel free to ask me any questions.

Have one, and a Jones Original. Prefer the Jones for 14 clubs, use it almost every day walking or the occasional ride. The moonlite i have is the one strap version, extremely minimal, as in 3 balls, maybe a rain shirt and 11 clubs. I can squezze 14 in but its a pain getting the clubs in and out. I also have a regular putter grip. Do not think a fat grip would fit. Not bad for a Sunday bag, not as good as the Jones for everyday work with full set. Quality product.

I had one and it is awful. Your club heads are on the ground when you lay the bag down, which means wet headcovers, and scratches if you put on hard surfaces. The underbelly may be water resistant but it still gets wet and so will your shirt when you lug it around.
I would strongly suggest something with a stand. Titleist makes one with tiny feet, and Callaway has a very nice bag with legs about a foot long. If you can spare it, get a sun mountain 2.5, it is worth it weight in gold.

I think I am going to get the Titleist with the tiny feet for a bag to go to the dome in winter, and an occasional walking bag with 9 clubs.  I have the Sun Mountaint 2.5, which is my everyday bag.  The Titleist would lie flatter in the car in the winter.

I like the fabric and some of the colors of the new Sun Mountain 2.5+.  Next purchase.

After using the bag for a few months, I still like the bag. The build quality is really nice and it's really light.

The only thing I still can't figure out is how to keep the clubs from sliding out when carried. I've tried different strap configurations but the clubs still feel like they have a tendency to slide. The bag is so light that there is no counterweight towards the bottom of the bag that I have to keep a hand on it.

I guess I can load up the bag some with extra balls or something but that defeats the purpose.

Great bag,  but can't really use it as my only bag.   Great for dry days but I am typically a dewsweeper so have to use a stand most rounds

Here is mine from the other day. Love the older single strap style that sticks in the air. So easy on the back...

Used my Hoofer  today with 14 clubs but I really prefer the Moonlite for quick rounds.

I bought the Titleist with the little feet.  When it came, it seemed clunky, and heavier than a minimalist bag should be.  SO I sent it back for the Moonlight.

I have been using the Moonlight lately, and for what it is, it is really good.  I also have a new Sun Mountain 2.5 which I will use when riding on a cart, but the Moonlight will be my walking bag most days.  I'll be carrying 10 or 11 clubs, maybe 12.

Just picked up one for short money- really is a nice bag for walking. Would absolutely recommend the Moonlite or the Titleist carry bag..
