Wilson Staff EXO Dry Stand Bag Review

For me, the best golf bags, like good umpires, go unnoticed, they cause no drama. Not that you can miss the Wilson Staff EXO Dry Stand Bag in bright red, but I hope you see my point. After playing a number of rounds with this bag, I don’t find myself fidgeting with awkward straps to adjust, or kicking in place so it doesn’t tip over – both of which are pets.

Let’s start with the design. It features a 5-way top with two full-length dividers. Weighing 2.8 kg, it is light and easy to grip thanks to its three molded handles.

The six pockets include a full-length apparel pocket, one for valuables, one for balls, two large for accessories and another large for a rangefinder or drink. They’re the perfect size and if you need more storage space, you’re probably someone who carries too much gear. I don’t miss having an easy-to-access, zipperless pocket/pouch, although it’s not for everyone.

I put a big tick against the redesigned support trigger, which deploys the legs farther for greater stability, while the manufacturer’s 2-in-1 self-balancing strap technology improves fit and comfort. I’m not the most patient when it comes to making adjustments – even changing shoe laces can drive me crazy – so I like that this bag makes the process nice and easy.

If you are looking for a fully waterproof bag, this is one to add to your list. The seam-sealed construction and welded zippers, which have nice big hooks so you can open and close the pockets with minimal fuss, ensure the pockets stay dry. It more than coped with a heavy downpour after a day on the links, and the material dried out pretty quickly. I also like the large snap-on rain hood, which you don’t need a degree to attach.

The bag also includes an umbrella holder, a towel ring and a glove holder. In short, it covers all the bases very well. Personally, the red is a bit too bold for me. Call me boring, but I prefer the black/charcoal/silver colorway. Good referees and all that.

If there’s one aspect of the bag that may worry some people, it’s the three pads on the side, which are clearly there to provide comfort. There’s no doubt that they do it well, although they seem to scuff quite easily.
