PING Folding Travel Cover

Hey, a softsided travel case that can stand upright? Intriguing… It’s true – with most standard softsided bags tipping over on fellow travelers in line to check-in at the airport, the PING stands on its own. We would love to say you can push/pull it like a hardsided case, but having only 2 urethane wheels means that you’ll still effectively lifting nearly 25 pounds while pulling the bag through a parking lot (which has turned us toward both hardsided bags, as well as soft travel covers that have four or six inline skate wheels to make transporting the bags just that much easier). Two large zipped interior pockets and three external compression straps keep things in order,. And though a reinforced base can keep the bag upright, as a soft bag it still folds relatively flat when not in use (see image).

The 11½-pound cover measures 52″x17″x12″ fits all carry and most cart bags, while protecting with a combination of 1200-denier polyester (a bit less dense than some tested), a high-impact polypropylene twin shell, heavy duty YKK zippers, and thick upper padding.
