I also have a Sun Mountain Swift X '10 model for when I feel like walking the 9 holes. It's a very light bag (about 3 lbs. empty!).

If it's wet I break out an old stand bag: a blue cavalry twill Ping L8+. It must be 16 or 17 years old now, but it's still in fine fettle and does what's asked of it perfectly well. I've also got a newer Nike stand bag, a real modern job, only about nine or ten years old, but the artfully shaped double strap arrangement on it is a bit of a liability given that I'm afflicted with left-shoulderedness.
Very occasionally I'll break out a staff bag. Usually it's when I'm pitching up for a long-ish session on the field of dreams and want to be able to get my shoes, 18 clubs and some food and drink into the one bag for ease of carrying it all from the car to the practice ground, but occasionally I break out the old Turfglider trolley and plonk a big bag atop it simply for a change when I hit the course. One of a couple of Titleist ones is the usual bag of choice. I've got the hint of red current model in a 10.5" size as well as the same-sized preceding model with the grey stripe which, if I'm honest, áI prefer. There's plenty of room for everything in them, and even if the logos on the flanks are so ostentatiously large that they can be read from a low Earth orbit it makes a nice change to take one out for an occasional spin. Plus, if the weather's a bit dicey there can be real benefits in having all the extra space available for rain gear and other kit. I do have several other ones that I've picked up over the years too, but they're all '80s and '90s vintage and relegated to club storage duty in the loft now. Only the newer Titleist ones (and, very occasionally, a black and white Mk I Nike bag with the crossed clubs/Nike Golf 'shield' logo) see the course.
Why did I get them? Well, the pencil bag was all of thirty quid and had the features (primarily a top cuff with a divider and a single strap) that I was after, whilst the L8 I was lucky enough to get for nothing as a youngster. The staff bags I occasionally use were freebies from a couple of friends; one of whom's a pro, the other an ex-pro. Needless to say - particularly as a Yorkshireman - free bags are the best ones of all; although getting hold of a blank front panel via Titleist UK for the newer bag would have tested the patience of Job. It would have been worth paying a couple of hundred quid simply to avoid all the aggravation.

Back to the SM 3.5. I prefer it over the Ogio Vaporlite. Feels lighter, better legs, & more durable. I've gone through 3 Vaporlites. The strap has snapped on all three. Tthe VLites would annoy me b/c the legs would not always fully retract when carrying. However, I do like Ogio's Woode top.

My Ogio Wire, which I received as a gift, is still in the garage unused. It looks like a nice bag, but I haven't gotten around to trying it. It does have a nice strap which can be changed from a single to a double simply by sliding a little fabric holder to one end or the other.

I agree about the differentiation. An Adidas bag is a nice variation from the more common names. I always thought the 2009 Ascend bag in white, red, and yellow was pretty sharp looking.

I have a Nike Xtreme Element and it's really good. The metal handle is awesome for loading the bag in and out of cars.
Really light weight and would buy/recommend again.

The 4 Under is so light but big enough for 14 clubs, balls, tees and water bottle. I was looking at SM 3.5, but ultimately just like the Ping better.
Even though weight was the key factor, I just couldn't see myself with the Swift or the Titleist Ultralight. Just too small and I'm a bigger guy. My wife said it just looked funny. Besides, the 4 Under is plenty light.
If I were looking for a single bag and rode as much or more than walked, I'd look at the Hoofer or SM 4.5/Titleist Premium as compromise, but I walk almost exclusively and an extra two to three pounds makes a difference.
I agree weight is important. I'm looking at getting the 4 under too. I love the 14 seperate dividers in the SM 4.5 or sasquatch, but along with the weight, i really like how ping stand bags sit lower to the ground (more stable when standing)and the carry straps are more practical
I got a question for brianmontgomery2000: how are the retractable straps working out , any problems???
