Callaway Chev Dry 14 Waterproof Cart Bag Review
Generally speaking, the best cart bags in golf are quite heavy. However, at just 1.8kg (just under 4lbs) the 2023 Callaway Chev Dry 14 waterproof cart bag is easily one of the most lightweight golf bags I have ever tested. This sort of weight would be considered light for a stand bag, let alone a larger cart bag, so I was really impressed with this design from Callaway. If you’re someone who is fed up with lugging a heavy cart bag in and out of your car, the Chev Dry 14 could be your solution to woes.
Despite the lightweight design, there is still plenty of space in this bag.

For me, the materials on the Callaway ORG 14 Hyper Dry cart bag or Motocaddy Protekta cart bag feel more premium.
Overall I really enjoyed using the Callaway Chev Dry 14. The well-proportioned pockets and superbly lightweight nature of the bag make it so easy and stress-free to use while the fully waterproof materials will give you the…
