Walking a golf course and carrying your clubs is one of the purest ways to experience the game. If you are playing a beautiful course is a natural setting on a warm summer day, it almost seems like a crime to take a cart and ruin the atmosphere. If you are a golfer who enjoys the quiet walk down each fairway, the Taylor Made Quiver bag is a product you need to take a close look at.
Keeping it Simple
The Quiver bag is a throwback with some modern technology to bring it into the 21st century. It is truly a carry bag, with no stand mechanism or useless extra pockets. This bag sticks to only the essentials, and as a result it weighs just 2.2 pounds before you start loading it up. The bag does come with a double-strap system to take the pressure off of your shoulder as the round wears on. An easy-to-reach bottle pouch is found on the outside of the bag to keep your drink close at hand.
A Couple of Limitations
Admittedly, this is a product that is best used in the dry months wherever you play your golf. You will have to set the bag down between each shot, so wet turf and the Taylor Made Quiver bag don’t really get along. Also, because of it’s unstructured design, this bag will not really stand well-enough to ride along on the back of a cart. If you know you will be riding, better move your clubs bag to your full-sized bag for the day.
With those drawbacks acknowledged, this is still a great product and one that is worth your consideration. Once you get used to the minimalist design, you will wonder why you ever put up with your large carry bag in the first place. The Quiver makes life on the golf course simpler – and that is something that we can all appreciate.
Despite being a stripped down golf bag, there are still many of the features you have probably come to expect. You can find a padded valuables pouch for safe keeping while you play, and a hip pad where the bag falls against your side as you walk. The pockets are surprisingly large on both sides of the bag – big enough to hold as many golf balls as you want (need) to lug around the course. If the weather forecast is dicey, you can slip a jacket into the larger pouch just in case.
Golfers who only hit the links when riding in a cart will not have much use for the Taylor Made Quiver, except for possibly as a driving range bag that fits in the car easier than a full-sized model. For those who love to walk, however, the Quiver is a product that can change the way you experience the game. Lightweight, simple, and well-made, this golf bag will be a joy to throw on your back hole after hole. If you live somewhere that has dry golf as the norm rather than the exception, investing in the Taylor Made Quiver is a decision you won’t likely regret.
