It wouldn’t be golf in this country if it didn’t rain so why not get ahead of the weather with Big Max latest in waterproof technology

The sound of the spilling rain atop the office roof makes this quite an apt one to pen. Indeed, what better time to tell you that Big Max Aqua golf bag range is adding two new designs for 2019, with innovative new technology and stylish upgrades leading the changes.

The key technology underpinning the Aqua range is the brand’s tried and tested Drop-Stop system that guarantees the bags are 100% waterproof. Incorporating sealed seams, Japanese waterproof zippers and fabric with a waterproof rating of 10,000 mm, the Aqua range delivers an unrivalled level of waterproofing.

Where does that waterproof rating mean? Well, Hydrostatic testing of waterproof fabric gives a mm per 24 hours rating. This refers to the amount of rainfall a fabric can withstand in a single day. Thus, a 10,000mm waterproof rating means the garment can withstand 10,000mm of rainfall in a single day without letting moisture in.

To add to its rain-repelling beauty, the ultra-lightweight, tear resistant materials complete the robust practicality of construction and then each bag in the series adds its own take on making a golfer’s life on the course just that little bit easier.

The AQUA V-4 is the latest in a long line of Big Max innovations that is set to subtly change the way golfers look at their gear. Big Max has studied traditional cart bag design and identified the toe-down hang of a golfers’ woods an obstruction to the quick and easy selection of a club.

To combat this issue and make golf just that little bit easier, Big Max has created the V-Lock organiser top. With four ‘Twist and Lock’ mechanisms across the top row of the AQUA V, the golfer’s woods are held in place, facing away from the rest of the clubs and leaving a clear view for easier club selection. With the lightweight locking mechanism housed at the foot of the bag, the organiser top retains a traditional look and the overall weight of the bag is kept to a minimal 2.7kg – trust me, it’s light!

With 14 full length dividers, 9 spacious waterproof pockets, hybrid putter/umbrella well, 2 cooler pockets, glove and towel holder, umbrella holder, transport handles and generous 10-inch top, the AQUA V-4 is full of practical touches that make this premium cart bag a golfer’s dream. Add in the V-Lock mechanism and its waterproof pedigree and the AQUA V-4 really does deliver the Big Max promise to simplify the game.

The AQUA Style 2 is a timeless example of European styling combined with golfing practicality. The Style 2 benefits from generous proportions, including 9 spacious waterproof pockets, an oversize cooler pocket, and a 14-way organiser top with full length dividers. Despite its capacity and feature list, the Style 2 weighs in at a surprisingly light 2.1 kg. The look of the Style 2 is uniquely stylish – as the name suggests! It features a mix of vertical, horizontal and curved pockets that combine practical positioning and a European design aesthetic. Add in the waterproof technology and distinctly ‘BIG MAX’ features and the Style 2 is a cart bag that will turn many heads next summer.

AQUA V-4 SRP: €349.99. Available in: Black, Charcoal/Fucshia, Navy/White/Red, Red/Black, Steel Blue/Black/Orange, Storm Silver/Black/Lime, White/Black/Orange

AQUA Style 2 SRP: €291.90. Available in: Blue/Grass, Cream/Coffee, Navy/Cream, Red/Silver, Silver/Navy, Storm Silver/Lime, White/Pink.
