Anyone have one of these?

http://www.wilson.co...ix-sl-carry-bag

I'm looking for a lightweight carry bag and this seems to tick most of the boxes (no umbrella sleeve is annoying), but unfortunately no stores around me stock it so I can't check it out in person.  $100 almost seems too good to be true ...

Just got the solid black one myself. Great bag for the money. Liking mine  so far. Only thing I dislike , and itís nitpicking I guess, the towel ring is a nylon loop instead of plastic or metal live they use to be, seems to be the trend with stand bags these days though. I keep a tee bag n club brush on it is all so no big deal. Plus I got it for less than $100!!

Nice.  What's the side material like?  I took a look at the super-light style bags (e.g. SM) in store and the thing that turned me off them was the bare fabric with no protective barrel on the inside.  Is the Wilson similar or is it a little more robust?

I say itís a more robust than bare fabric. Iíve got 2 more W/S bags in the garage, one being a super light weight also, and itís held up great as well. It only has a 3 way too but is, when carried, a great bag also. I just like a 5 way too. The SL  is well worth the $99 I think.

Thanks for your input, I think I'll pull the trigger as like you say for $99 it's worth it.

Every time y'all post about this bag I have to go online and look at my current credit card transactions to remind myself I am WAY over budget for golf gear this month.

I think I'm OK as long as there are no more photos...
Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

I used it for  1st time today. Fit on cart great, no club tangle, as I use mid sized grips, and didnít slide around like most stand bags Iíve used in the past. Really liking it.

Love these bags. I have 2. Carried a black for probably 45 rounds between this year and last year, still in great shape. This will be the first time I've ever had a carry bag make it through 2 seaons. I assume Ill get to the 3rd. I still buy other bags for decoration, but use the black Wilson.

I'm not really a fan of branded bags, but there's something about the return of old school W/S that appeals to me.  I hit the new C300 the other day and now I'm working out how to justify buying one!  Maybe I'll start small and pick up a FG Tour first ....
