Get yourself a Staff (midsize or 9.5)... and keep a Hoofer close by for walking.  Staff bags are ridiculously functional, once you go staff... you'll never go back.

I have a c130. Like the individual putter well and how all my clubs and pockets face me on the cart.

I've always liked the looks of staff bags and can understand why someone would want one. Nike staff bag and Titleist look good.

I have a Titleist SL bag when I walk.

i have now realized that it's almost impossible to have only ONE bag for all types of situations so i currently have the following:

1)a small range/stand bag that can fit 8-10 clubs...i use this exclusively on the range.

2)a medium-sized stand bag that can fit up to 14 clubs(slightly tight fit)...i use this sometimes on the range and whenever i have to travel light--ie--by plane or limited space in a vehicle.

3)a full size tour stand bag..

4)a mid-sized staff bag..

i have 2 gamer sets which i put in 3) and 4) and which see the most use..

PS:i normally use a golf car when playing..

Stand bag all the way. Easier to carry, and a million times lighter. Granted i dont carry a lot of stuff, so i never need all the room/pockets in a staff bag.

I walk most of the time so I carry a stand bag.  My 12 year old Hoofer 2 is great when I need to carry extra gear and then I have an extremely lightweight Ping Mantis stand bag for those ideal days when I need to carry nothing more than my clubs, some balls, and tees.
I love golf

I'm too much of a bag ho. I have a Sta-Dry for the winter and spring. I have a regular stand bag for summer. I have a Sunday bag for the p3 and quick rounds. I have a staff bag for the summer for when i ride or use my push cart. I also have a staff bag to keep my spare shafts and clubs in... Dear God... I'm worse than a woman with a full closet of shoes and purses!

Staff bag with sun mountain micro cart...walk anything, anywhere.  Staff bag allows me to carry everything I might need for a round in english weather...have had snow/rain/sunshine/winds in one round...has to be seen to be believed. Staff bags also seem to be the most durable...however Mizuno UK made a really cool staff cart bag that had enlarged side pockets and no trunk, perfect for trolleys.

I have both.... many of the courses around here 'suggest' you ride to keep up pace of play... yet it is funny that my buddies and me tend to push the riders in front of us even though we walk.
Not having tee times is a double edged sword but normally the low cappers tend to try and get out first.... if we miss that 7-8am window we are staring down a 5hr round.

If I don't have a game on a specific day I make sure I bring my carry bag.... there are just some people ya don't wanna be in a cart with ;)

Cart bag - SM C-130.  All black, lots of pockets, rugged. 10+ years old and still in excellent shape. Totally lacking in "look at me" appearance. Perfect.

Push Cart Bag - an even older SM SCB that is paired with an a early gen. Speed Cart. Bought them used and cheap years ago. Still in good shape and used regularly when I walk a 9. A little on the small side but it forces me to consider only the essentials. Basic black. Suppose I'll upgrade someday when this one gives out.

And..... A giganto Burton leather bag (inherited) that has long been regulated to storage purposes.

aside from being a club ho i was also kind of a bag ho during the past 55 years playing this game..

in my younger days i always had some kind of large staff bag to match the brand of my clubs and always had more golf bags than complete sets..

lately i've discovered there are more cons than pros with bigger bags and now have a small izzo sunday stand bag as my main gamer and have disposed of all of my bigger staff and cart bags..

get a nice light stand bag with big enough pockets for ESSENTIALS and you're good to go..

my ESSENTIALS are:

...extra balls, gloves and tees which i put in a small pouch
...extra shirt, towel, socks, and cap
...raingear--short sleeve rain vest /rain hat/bag cover plus--of course-- umbrella..
...

Living in NV I always think it is funny when people mention rain gear. .. .Whats that??  HaHa
Come visit the other side of the country..we'll trade ya for a while....

I have a Callaway Stadium Org 14 cart bag that I use with my three-wheel push cart.  It's the only bag I could find that had the umbrella holder on the correct side to use with the push cart.  Plus its a great bag with tons of pockets and room.
