Nike Golf debuts lightweight Vapor X bag

Nike Golf is introducing its lightest golf bag ever, the Nike Vapor X. Weighing in at less than two kilograms, the Nike Vapor X weighs far less than the average carry bag.

Possessing a sleek, sporty look, the Nike Vapor X was created by using minimal materials to provide a lightweight design.

With Nike’s new lightweight golf bag, golfers will experience more stamina and less fatigue during their round through the benefit of carrying less weight on their back.

Available at US retail on November 1, 2011, the new Nike Vapor X golf bag features new, ergonomically designed strap system with the renowned Nike Max Air curved technology.

This new strap system combined with several other innovative features promises to enhance the playing experience by elevating performance and maximising functionality.

While compact in size, the Nike Vapor X offers six functional pockets that provide a generous amount of storage space.

The seam-welded, no-stitch technology enhances water-resistancy for playing in the elements, and the waterproof fleece-lined valuables pocket provides a safe location for cell phone and other valuables during the round.

The Stretch-fit pockets of the Nike Vapor X have been created with dynamic expandable technology, allowing for increased storage capacity.

A versatile bag that is designed for walking the course, the Nike Vapor X offers many functions, including a 5-way divider and putter-well configuration for 14 clubs.

So the golfer can easily find items in their bag, the Nike Vapor X provides intuitive icons for the waterproof pocket, glove patch, GPS/rangefinder loop, pen-sleeve and insulated water-bottle sleeve.

Known for incorporating “Nike AIR” technology in its footwear products, Nike Golf is now applying this same technology to the shoulder straps of its golf bags.

The Nike Vapor X features new Nike Max Air Curved carry straps, a dual-strap design designed through extensive consumer insights and developed with Nike AIR technology.

By curving the air bag within the strap, Nike Golf designers have created a golf bag that more ergonomically fits the shoulders.

The die-cut mesh back pad has a new, tighter pattern, allowing for ventilation. These two features combine to provide superior support and optimum comfort while walking 18 holes.

Offered in seven colour-ways, the Vapor X complements many of the upcoming men and women’s apparel and footwear lines for the 2012 season.
