Not gonna lie...I was worried that I wasn't gonna get it...backordered, no longer available or some crap like that!

Unfortunate Canadian Costco site does not have this deal...sigh

I'm in Toronto as well and i ordered from the Costco USA site and have it mailed to my post box in Niagara Falls NY.

Shipping info says it will be there tomorrow. Pay a small handling fee and some tax and they deliver it to Markham. Easy

This was too good a deal to pass up!

Wish there were more colorways for the 14-way stand...might still need to pull the trigger on one.

Yep...me too!

That's why I ended up going with the regular Storm Match Play...like the color offerings better...otherwise definitley wouldve preferred the 14 way!

I ordered a cart bag on Sunday and still haven't got shipping confirmation.  Last time this happened, I ended up getting the wrong color.  Hope that doesn't happen again.

I think its a better bag overall. I am comparing the SM Four 5 to the 14 Way UA. I've owned the SM and always moved on from it quickly. The UA has better material, better straps and the 14 way top is better and arranged better. It is a heavier bag but I have felt SM has cut corners the past couple of years in the name of weight.

I agree.  As stated before, I think the UA bags are more substantial, higher quality SM bags basically.  And I think SM bags are some of the best out there, as I use them pretty regularly. I sell both SM and UA bags, and side by side (comparable models) the UA bags just seem a step above the SM bags even though they are both made by the same company.

Just got my UA Match Storm bag yesterday. Got the red, white, blue color scheme.
Upgrading from a relatively new Sun Mountain 4.5 bag, not a needed upgrade but I canít pass up a deal.
Pros of the UA over the Sun Mountain 4.5 (which is a great bag):
Front pocket with a padded protector and range finder sleeve.
Top right fleece lined valuables pocket with a separate sleeve that seems perfect for a phone.
About two more pockets than SM 4.5
Better bottle holder setup
Legs seem more stable and tactile. The SM 4.5 legs would slide out on my epoxy garage floor or tile floor. The UA legs are very stable and grab the slick surfaces nicely.
Cart strap sleeve/tunnel in the UA that is not on the SM.

Only con initially would be that the SM 4.5 shoulder straps seem more padded.

Assessment: didnít need to upgrade, but glad I did. Additional features to make it worth while, and thatís coming from a relatively new SM bag. If you have an older bag, itís a no brainer at $99 and free delivered in 4-5 days.

Does the 2019 Sun Mtn 4.5 not have a cart strap pass through?  Pretty sure the models prior to 2019 did.  Interesting that they'd drop that on a bag that is fairly heavy anyways.

Apologies, itís actually a ThreeFive. Probably 2017ish. No cart strap slot.

Received my 14 way bag today, very happy with it! Have to agree with pretty much everything fsutanker said. I have a 2018 4.5 bag. I like the pockets a lot better. The shoulder straps def aren't as padded but I mostly ride so no biggie. Overall very happy for the price.

ONLY con so far for my cart bag is the slot for the umbrella is super tight (need to muscle is down in there) but that could be because I have a 68" double canopy umbrella... :smilie_tm:

Other than that, the material/construction seems much nicer than my previous SM bags (SLX and 4.5).

I bought the 14 way stand also. Since I have a red ClicGear, it will be perfect. I’m finally replacing an old Ogio bag that was falling apart ��
