What brand makes the best carry/stand bags?

Trying to decide between a hoofer and the SM Swift X but really don't like blazing a huge PING/Sun Mountain logo. Right now I'm gaming this knock off Paragon with zero logos that has suited me well for past 2 yrs. However stand is out of whack and it's time for a change.
Datrek....you can find them cheap on craigslist and you won't be disappointed.

One negative thing that stands out though is the stand on my Ping Hoofer wasn't very good. It didn't angle a lot, so the bag would fall over a lot if I was on a small hill. The stand mechanism also eventually broke after a few years. No real problems with the other bags though.

Ogio had 2. First one the legs went after a decade? Bug.
I have a ogio Flash, hey it's $40.
I kind of like less badging on my bags...decent legs and a comfy strap.

I would get a new PING bag in a heartbeat. Probably a Hoofer for a little extra room.

This irritated to the point that I wanted to take it back and did try a Ping Latitude for half a round but it was too too harsh in my opinion. So I just learned to live with the bad legs. Soon you start making sure the bag won't fall over without paying attention to it.
The Woode top is probably the best out there (not so for the lefties though) also the straps are very comfortable, there's enough pockets for everything and they're big enough, the ball silo and velcro for your glove are good plus it holds water outside to some extent.

The Four 5 and the Hybrid aren't the same. The Hybrid is a cart bag that can be carried while the Four 5 is a carry bag that fits in a cart.
I love my Four 5. It has lots of room (too much) and the pocket layout is good enough that everything I need is within reach while walking. The 14-way divider was the clincher for me. The strap had to be restitched but it's not a big deal. It's also light enough.
