What we say...
2011 Test: Bronze Award
Most of our testers preferred brighter colours when it came to bags but the Callaway proved itself to be a real winner with the sleek black styling and it scored highly in this category. David said that looking so stylish in a dark colour was a big advantage as it would look newer for longer and not be as affected by dirt after a few rounds on the course.
In terms of performance, our team said the straps were among the most comfortable on test while also seeming as if they would be extremely durable and hard wearing over time.
The 14-club top cuff was popular with David and Stuart in particular and the carry handle on the top cuffwas a winner with all four testers. Ross even said he specifically missed this feature when using other bags after the Callaway. The number of pockets on the bag was also a big plus, with Ross commenting particularly on the pockets within pockets for valuables and other smaller items.
The rainhood was also made of very tough and durable material that felt as though it would last. Finally David liked the flat base because he felt this would lend itself to sitting well on a trolley rather than being carried all of the time.
There was no insulated drinks or food compartment – these proved popular features on other bags. Stuart and Richard also said the legs had a tendency to rattle a little when walking.
