The best stand bags in my mind were the old school Ping Hoofers that were made in the USA.  They no longer are though and I think the quality suffered.  I had a newer model that fell apart quite quickly.  Ping replaced it (which was nice) but sold it and bought a brand new Ping Hoofer (12-15 old model) off the bay.  Can't beat the old ones, they last for decades.  

For staff bags, any premium brand seems fine.  Most are fake leather but last a long time.  Have an old titleist one, it's solid.

Sun Mountain closing in on a 100 vote lead.  Recently tried a Hoofer, silly mistake.  Sun Mountain is the undisputed champ in my book.

Sun mountain is ok, nothing wrong with ping. I just got a sun mountain 2.5+ that will have to go back. The material is so lightweight and the zipper is so weak that I canít even zip up a medium golf fleece in the apparel pocket without the zipper failing. There is no question, the material Ping uses on their bags is much more durable than sun mountain uses on any bag, 2.5 or 3.5.

Yeah, 2.5+ is a great bag but not meant to put much in pockets.  I hate the PING material, too thick and just doesn't seem like golf bag material to me.  I prefer the sleeker tent-like material SM uses, but I could see someone preferring the thicker stuff.  The tilting hoofer mechanism is where PING fails vs SM in my opinion.  There's so much more effective room for clubs in a SM that ends also being quite a bit lighter.

Iíve got a 16 ping 4 series that still looks brand new after two years use. Iíve had sun mountain in the past and feels like Iím carrying around a nylon rain jacket with clubs in it. Ping dominates the team bags as well, college etc.To each their own though

Just bought my first SM (2five) and it really brings me back to what carry bags were back in my youth. Super light
I got it in navy red and white.. even to a non American, it looks sweet

I've got the same bag, and you've got to be careful when you zip up the apparel pocket when putting in a lot of items - I am careful to hold both parts of the pocket together when zipping up so it does not tear - may use some silicone spray on it.

In my experience with this bag -

You must watch the balance on this bag to get it to work correctly - in other words, it is not meant to pack heavy weight - I put 2 water bottles at the bottom and it was too bottom heavy - it's a bag that is a light carry - will fit all 14 clubs, a sweater, hat, balls, one camelback/water bottle, and rangefinder, plus tees, etc. When it's balanced, it's a great bag. But if you like to carry a lot of "stuff", I suggest a second bag.

Heard a lot of good abou the new Ping Hoofer - Lite, 14 way, and normal divider

At the same time, it did not feel light in comparison to a SM 3.5 - felt more like a 4.5 in weight. The Hoofer felt like a 5.5. Was in the store and the bags were next to each other - was surprised. And did you notice that while Ping calls it "Lite", they do not give you the weight spec.
