Remember last year when PGA.com discovered the BAMF Golf Bag? It went in their Father's Day Gift Guide, got the top spot in their summer review round-up , and later, ended up in their holiday gift guide, too. And probably because it looks so, well, badass, PGA.com kept using the BAMF as the feature image in their social media posts promoting those articles.
For thousands on Twitter, that question was their introduction to the revolution that is the BAMF Golf Bag. For us, it mirrored the question at the heart of our design process. Are we trying to make a great golf bag? Or are we trying to make the greatest golf bag of all fucking time?
Last year, the competition wasn't that strong. To make the best golf bag ever, we just had to outdo all the others -- you know, the ones with huge brand names and logos stretching across thin, crappy, neon-colored plastic or faux leather. So yeah, the 2016 BAMF was the best golf bag ever. And it really wasn't close.
But this year? We had to outdo ourselves. That, my fellow BAMFs, was more difficult. But ... behold the 2017 BAMF Golf Bag.
I know what you're thinking. You might notice a couple of minor differences, but it looks pretty much the same as last year, right? Well, yeah ... YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT IT DOES.
I mean, the original BAMF is epic, so we aren't reinventing the wheel here. But we did add some cool shit:
- Upgrades to material-grade stitching on the webbing
- An exterior zipper pocket at the top of the largest standard MOLLE pouch
- Extra length flexibility on shoulder straps
- YKK zippers
- 1-inch, flat-sided carabiner
- Left-side standard MOLLE pouch now covered in Velcro, plus embossing
- Both Standard MOLLE pouches will be about one inch smaller by width, increasing overall customization potential
And on top of all that, of course, the BAMF is still the only golf bag built around the MOLLE (MOdular Lightweight Load-bearing Equipment) platform. The ultimate system, originally created for the military, allows for unlimited and repeatable personalization/customization with thousands of MOLLE-compatible pouches and reconfigurable Velcro morale patches from ANY manufacturer.
Here's a 68-second explanation of the concept:
We expect the first limited production run to sell out quickly. So, if you want to make sure you get one of the first 100 in each color, go reserve one now: PRE-ORDER.
