Keep all of your equipment dry on the course with the best waterproof golf bags.
Waterproof golf bags never used to be a thing. If there was a downpour while you were on the course, you and your equipment got wet, end of story.

But over the last decade, as lightweight waterproof fabrics have developed, bag makers can protect what’s inside your bag from conditions outside.
Granted, there’s still have a whacking great hole at the top, which lets water in (unless you use a hood) and makes your grips damp. But whatever you have in the pockets – expensive phone, GPS device, car keys – will be kept dry, thanks to sealed-seam technology and waterproof fabrics, just like a waterproof jacket.
And it doesn’t matter if you prefer to carry or use a trolley, there’s a bag out there for everyone.

These are our favourite waterproof golf bags...
Sun Mountain H2NO Lite
£289.95 | brandfusionltd.co.uk
Sun Mountain invented the waterproof cart bag, and the H2NO family is among the best of them.
We like the Lite because of the lack of weight, but there’s also an oversized putter well that’s perfect for larger putter grips.

Big Max Aqua Prime
£269.99 | bigmax.com
One-hundred percent waterproof thanks to sealed seams, say Big Max, so just like a waterproof jacket.
Nine pockets make this perfect for golfers who insist on packing for every outcome on the course, with plenty of room for waterproofs.

Motocaddy Dry Series
£239.99 | motocaddy.com
The top trolley brands have a vested interest in creating quality bags as they’re an easy upsell when consumers buy a trolley. So every detail is considered and nothing comes as an after-thought.
We like how the weight of the Dry Series is kept to a minimum and how it’s fitted with Japanese YKK zips, the best money can buy.

£239.99 | powakaddy.com
If you own a PowaKaddy (or Motocaddy), it’s well worthwhile buying into one of their matching bags, which sit on the trolley perfectly thanks to unique locking devices.
PowaKaddy’s Dri-Tech is guaranteed waterproof to over 10,000mm, which is four times the level of most waterproof bags on the market.
Titleist StaDry Cart
£239 | titleist.co.uk
The perfect winter companion for a new Titleist TSi driver, that’s if you can afford one.
Seam-sealed with STADRY waterproof tech to keep all your kit protected from the elements.

Ping Hoofer Monsoon
£230 | ping.com
Ping invented the modern stand bag so they know a thing or two about making a bag that stands the test of time.
The Monsoon has six seam-sealed pockets to keep all your kit dry no matter what the conditions are throwing at you.
RELATED: Best Golf Mid-Layers
£215 | mizunogolf.com
Not all golfers want a waterproof bag; for those who prefer a small but perfectly formed ultra-light stand bag, the KI-LO has all the answers.
Carbon fibre means it weighs half that of most other standbags; perfect if there’s a trolley ban.

Sun Mountain Eco-Lite
£189 | brandfusionltd.co.uk
Sun Mountain make a fantastic range of award-winning waterproof bags (see the H2NO), but we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t highlight how every new Eco-Lite repurposes and upcycles 20-30 plastic bottles. It’s also water resistant.
RELATED: Best Winter Golf Gloves
£79.99 | callawaygolf.com
TG Equipment Ed Simon Daddow has used one of these for years. He swears the mini stand is perfect for keeping clubs off damp ground.
The weight is also much less taxing to carry whether the conditions are wet or warm.

Wilson Staff Quiver
£69 | wilson.com
If you want to get around the course as quickly as you can when it’s cold, a super lightweight, pencil-sized bag with a stand is a brilliant option.
At less than £70, the Quiver is outstanding value, for what is essentially a very handy golf bag.
