Sometimes the best new things I see at the PGA Merchandise Show are not new at all, but instead something I have missed in prior years. So forgive the delay in putting this forth until now. That said, if you travel for golf at all, Sun Mountain’s Kube travel bag is one of the most utilitarian travel bags I have ever seen.

Hyperbole? Perhaps. But it depends on what is important to you. As someone that travels with their clubs frequently, one of the hassles is always where to store the travel bag at home and, more importantly, how much dang trunk space is it going to take up once I get my clubs out of it on the road.

With the Kube, the answer is not much. A full-size travel bag (52 x 14 x 14 inches) with plenty of protection when unfolded, the Kube folds down to a highly manageable 9 x 13 x 14.5 inches—or smaller than your carry-on luggage. Still, it does not scrimp on the making sure your clubs arrive intact. The bag is constructed from durable, ballistic-style fabric in combination with plastic half-shells and dense foam padding to protect your sticks.

The Kube is available in ten colors including black, java-sand camo and tropic-spruce at a retail price of $270.
