Sun Mountain is adding the hip belt from its Zero-G golf bag to the Swift X, the company’s lightest full-sized bag, and calling it the Swift ZG.
The Swift ZG is carried like a traditional dual strap bag, with the belt positioned at the hip and closed with an adjustable Velcro strap to transfer the majority of the weight off the shoulders to aid in a more upright posture and reduced body fatigue.
“We have had other strap systems that transfer weight from the shoulders to the waist,” said Sun Mountain president Ed Kowachek. “The advantage of the hip belt on the Swift ZG is that it’s one size fits all.”
The belt on the Swift ZG is a padded strap that threads between the bag and the hip pad, adjusts simply from 28 to 48” inches and then holds tight with a Velcro closure. The belt holds the bag securely against the golfer’s body to keep it from twisting or bouncing.
Swift bags accommodate a full set of clubs with a 8.5-inch, two-way top and five pockets including a full-length clothing pocket, velour-lined valuables pocket, ball pocket and water bottle pouch.
Sun Mountain also incorporated the integrated lift assist handle, top-molded stand attachment for increased stability and durability, as well as the patented Roller Bottom leg mechanism for easy activation.
The men’s Swift ZG and Swift X come standard with Sun Mountain’s exclusive X-Strap Dual Strap System. The Swift line also includes junior and women’s models that come standard with the E-Z Fit Dual Strap System.
