RevCore Stand Bag Review: Classy Look Meets Premium Feel

Up until recently, I’ve only ever used golf bags that were made of fabric, whether nylon or canvas. I just couldn’t justify spending a bunch of money on a premium option that used synthetic leather.

I don’t know about you, but my bags in the past had generally been between $100-200. With prices the way they are today, you could easily find fabric bags for $300 and then leather ones for even more.

This is where RevCore comes into play, offering premium-looking bags for a reasonable price.

If you’ve never heard of RevCore before, the reason is that it’s a completely new brand, but not a new company. They’re owned by the same company that makes CaddyDaddy travel gear and Claw gloves (see our review).

In my experience, both brands make some solid stuff, so I was expecting the same with their bags. I was also able to try their cart bag, which is probably the better choice if you always use a push/power cart.

Note. I’ve used the RevCore stand bag for 15 rounds of golf (same with the cart version). I’m going to continue using the bag and will keep this post updated with the pros and cons that I find. Learn more about how we test here.

RevCore Premium Stand Bag: Unboxing & Initial Review

RevCore Stand Bag Product Details

The Looks

When I first pulled the bag out of the box my initial thought was, “That’s a beauty of a bag.” When you pair the simplistic design and premium materials, you get a bag with a very classy look.

Currently, the bag comes in two color options, black and blue. I went with the blue version because I already had the cart version in black and wanted to change it up a bit.

I had originally thought that the blue might be a bit too light, but that wasn’t the case at all. I have a tough time picking which color I like better. The blue version might have a bit more character while the black is timeless.

You also have the option between a 6 and 14-way divider system. My cart bag had the 14-way top (it’s the only option), so I went with the 6-way top on the stand bag.

The benefit of this is that there’s usually less club chatter. The downside is that you might get a bit more club tangle. We’ll cover this more in-depth in the performance section.

The main thing that really stood out to me was the quality of the small details. The club dividers are velvet-lined to protect your clubs. The zippers are metal and open/close extremely smoothly. There are very few plastic parts.

The Features

6/14 Way Top: You have the option between a 6 and 14-way top. The 6-way top will likely have less club clatter while the 14-way top will be smoother putting clubs in and taking them out.

2x Carry Straps: It comes with both a single and double carrying strap (they can be removed). The single strap won’t hang down as much and would be better if you’re using a cart. The double strap is way more comfortable if you’re carrying your bag.

2x Storage Pockets: One side of the bag has a full-sized storage pocket while the other side has a half-sized pocket. The larger pocket can fit a pair of shoes or a jacket, but probably not both.

Waterproof Valuables Pocket: This pocket is velvet-lined and is where you put your phone, wallet, keys, or anything else important. They’ll stay dry and won’t get scratched.

2x Cooler Pockets: Each side of the bag has a small cooler pocket that can hold 2 cans each (4 total). The only thing is that they aren’t closed pockets so drinks won’t stay cold as long.

Magnetic Pocket: This is an easy-access pocket that most people would use for their rangefinder. Hopefully not, but if you go through a lot of balls, you could also use this pocket.

Ball Pocket: This is one of the larger ball pockets I’ve seen and can easily fit 2 actual boxes of balls. Without the box, you could easily fit 40+ balls in there.

Velcro Glove Holder: My hands sweat in the summer months. Taking my glove off and putting it here helps them dry out a bit compared to just throwing it in my back pocket.

Metal Towel Loop: Metal is better than plastic when it comes to durability. So yeah, I think this is better.

Umbrella Holder: I don’t bring an umbrella to the course, but I know a couple of people who do. Whether it’s for the rain or it’s for the sun (crazy, I know), you’ll have a storage spot.

The Performance

When it comes to the performance of a stand bag, we’re basically just looking at how well it functions on the course. Is everything designed well or is there anything annoying that stands out?

The first thing is how well the clubs go in and out of the bag. I put 15 clubs in the bag, 4 in the top, 2 in each of the middle slots, and 3 in the bottom. Normally, you’d get some sort of club tangle.

I was actually very surprised at how easy it was to take clubs out and put them back in. There was essentially no club tangle. It’s a night and day difference compared to the cheaper bag I had before. We’ll see how this holds up over time.

The next thing was how comfortable it was to carry. As you probably know, 7.5 lbs isn’t considered light when it comes to carry bags. There are some bags on the market that are only 3 lbs, so that’s a bit of a difference.

Personally, I didn’t find it to be an issue. The strap is padded really well and I like to think I’m in pretty good shape. That said, if weight is an important factor for you, it may not be the best choice.

Other than that, I haven’t noticed much that I could complain about. Everything performs as it should and it’s nice to use. Again, we’ll update this if anything changes.

The Quality

If I’m going to be spending $300+ on a golf bag I want to make sure it’s going to last for the next 5+ years. Things could be great when you first buy them, but a lot of the time, parts start to break down.

The main questions we need to find answers to are:

  • Do the club dividers hold up well?
  • Do the zippers get stuck often or break?
  • Is it easy to clean the bag and does the material hold up to everyday wear and tear?
  • Are the legs snappy and do they stay closed when you’re carrying the bag?

Obviously, I haven’t had the bag long enough to answer these questions. As of now, the club dividers are still doing their job, the zippers still open/close smoothly, and the bag is easy to wipe down.

The most important thing for me is how good the legs are. I’ve had bags in the past where the legs would bounce open and closed when you’re walking. It’s not a huge deal, but it gets a bit annoying after a while.

The legs on the RevCore are springy when you open them and are secure when you close them. With a pretty decent price tag, this is what you’d hope to get.

The Bottom Line

After taking everything into account, I think the RevCore bag is one of the best-valued options on the market. You could easily compare it to other bags that are priced at $100 more.

If you walk the course and carry your bag every time, you may want to pick a lighter bag. If you only use a push/power cart, you may want to get a dedicated cart bag. If you do a little bit of everything, this could be the perfect bag.

I know spending $300 on a bag isn’t something everyone will do. That said, when basic bags from Taylormade, Callaway, and Ping are going for similar prices, it’s a no-brainer to spend a little bit more to get a premium option.
