First Look: Sew SL2 Air Walker Golf Bag


Sew, maker of premium golf items, has introduced an replace to their flagship SL2 golf bag.

The brand new Sew SL2 Air Walker is designed to be the final word carry bag. Each lighter and cheaper than a number of the competitors within the premium golf bag area, Sew is hoping to place themselves in a positive gentle in a market that’s rising ever extra crowded.

Have they succeeded? Right here’s what you might want to learn about this new(ish) launch from Sew.

SL2 Air Walker Tech Specs

  • Retails at $298 ($150 lower than the brand new Sew SL2)
  • Simply over 4 kilos
  • 50 p.c extra pockets than earlier technology
  • Magnetic ball pocket
  • YKK zippers

Why?

The Sew SL2 Air Walker is one thing that the model has been severely missing. Their golf bag lineup has been lacking a extra budget-friendly (sure, it’s nonetheless fairly darned costly) bag that also gives the identical efficiency advantages of their mainline SL2 MIY.

However does the price discount include tradeoffs?

For one, the Air Walker is significantly lighter. That’s a optimistic tradeoff, one which comes by the use of utilizing cheaper (and fewer heavy) supplies in its development. However, even nonetheless, at greater than 4 kilos, the Air Walker is combating in additional of the middleweight class than the featherweight.

For comparability, the Maxfli Air stand bag weighs in at simply 2.5 kilos. The usage of the “Air ” designation does, in my view, open up Sew to truthful comparability between the lightest luggage in the marketplace.

Exterior of weight, the Sew SL2 Air Walker has the identical efficiency advantages of its dearer counterpart, the flagship SL2 MIY. The expanded space for storing, magnetic ball pocket and ultra-tough YKK zippers are all nonetheless there.

And whereas I don’t (but) have the SL2 Air Walker in hand, the match and end of the efficiency nylon development does look (virtually) as premium as Sew’s typical touring cloth.

Is it a Win?

Providing customers a extra budget-friendly (once more, I exploit this time period loosely) possibility that also options many of the identical efficiency advantages of the large boys is one thing to rejoice. On this planet of sneakers, the phrase I might use to explain the bag is a “takedown mannequin.”

A real takedown mannequin is a chunk of drugs, on this case a bag, that shares DNA with a flagship product but options cost-saving measures to carry you a extra truthful worth. And, with the final word aim making the bag lighter than their different choices, Sew did an honest factor right here with the Air Walker.

For what it’s value, I want extra corporations would offer takedown fashions of their flagship merchandise.

Is it value your money? That’s so that you can resolve. Till our February golf bag check, I can’t absolutely advocate the Air Walker. That mentioned, when you’re already a Sew fan however need one thing extra economical (and simpler to hold) the SL2 Air Walker might be proper up your alley.
