Just like we wrote in our review about the smaller VLS Stand Bag, the VLS Lux is the go-to choice for any golfer that likes to walk, takes their game and equipment seriously, and appreciates the finest quality. At first glance, it’s easy to tell that this stand bag exists in a league of its own compared to those manufactured in bulk by other major OEM’s. The folks at Vessel take a tremendous amount of pride in their work, and it shows. Even though this bag is a little on the spendy side, it’s more than worth the investment for any discerning golfer.

Description

We’re back at it with another Vessel golf bag review.  Over the last couple of years, we’ve fostered a close relationship with this company, and we couldn’t be luckier.  They send us new product to test out whenever they have it, and it’s always top-of-the-line stuff.

We recently got our hands on their brand new VLS Lux Stand Bag.  It lived up to our now exceedingly high expectations in every way.

The VLS Lux Stand Bag is slightly larger than the VLS Stand Bag.  With that being said, it embodies everything that a quality carry bag should, and then some.

Key Features

  • Patented Rotator Stand System provides maximum stability.
  • Four-point adjustable EQ2 double strap is easy to configure and provides maximum carry comfort.
  • Six pockets give you plenty of room for storage.

Vessel VLS Lux Stand Bag Detailed Review

Design and Technology

While the Vessel VLS Stand Bag is a work of art unto itself, the VLS Lux has even more going for it.

The first feature that pops out is the premium material with which it’s constructed.  Tour-grade material and genuine leather accents give this bag a clean, yet striking look.  They’re also meant to last and won’t fade or fray in the sun or wet weather.

The zippers on the pockets are both classy looking, and functional.  They’re made from YKK metal, and each has a leather pull tab.  How about the fact that they’re guaranteed to be waterproof too?

Next, the stability of this bag is worth noting.  The Patented Rotator Stand System and premium carbon fiber legs keep this bag upright no matter where you set it down. 

We can’t get too far along here without talking about the pockets.  The most noticeable is the large garment pocket on the side of the bag that has enough room to store all the clothing you could ever need.

Next, both the rangefinder and valuables pockets are lined with antimicrobial velour.  In these pockets, you don’t have to worry about items getting scratched or scuffed. 

The water bottle sleeve is cooler-lined and has a magnetic tab for easy access.

The four-point EQ2 double strap is one of the most comfortable on the market too.  Adjusted in the right position for your body type, the bag’s weight is evenly distributed across your back. 

Other features include a dual-purpose towel ring and bottle opener, matching rain hood, quilted hip pad, umbrella holder, and pen holder.

Specs

Despite its apparent size, the VLS Lux Stand Bag weighs in at just 4.8 pounds. 

The body of the bag is made from Tour-Grade synthetic leather that’s meant to stand the test of time and is easy to clean. 

On top, there are four full-length dividers that are lined with velour.

The bag measures 11” long x 9” wide x 35” tall.

Colors include pebbled white, perforated black, crosshatch black, crosshatch maroon, and crosshatch natural.

Our Experience

When it’s cool enough in my hometown of Phoenix, I prefer to walk.  And I’ve done so with the latest edition of the Vessel VLS Lux Stand Bag.  I wasn’t disappointed.

Each time I put this bag on my back, I’m surprised by just how light it is considering its size.  Even stuffed full of all my gear, I never get tired packing this bag around the course.

The attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are apparent too.  No matter how many rounds I play with this bag, its colors maintain their sheen and the seams have yet to fray. 

Most of all though, I’ve never had a bag that’s as stable as the VLS Lux.  No matter what kind of terrain I find myself in (sometimes it’s ugly), this bag stays upright. 

In short, I’ve yet to come across a more well-built, functional stand bag than this

Conclusion

Vessel continues to raise the bar with every bag they make.  The VLS Lux Stand Bag is just the latest chapter in an ongoing saga.

Not only is this bag eye-catching, it’s built to stand the test of time, and is highly functional. 

If you like to walk and demand the very best from your bag in terms of design, comfort, and performance, it’s hard to beat the Vessel VLS Lux Stand Bag.
