REVIEW: Walk 18 Golf Harness
After proper installation of the Walk 18 Golf Harness I started to adapt to the new habit required to get the most benefit out of the harness; the waist buckle. Like all good hiking backpacks, there is a waist belt that helps distribute weight low around your waist. While hiking it makes sense because you leave the backpack on for hours, the on and off of a golf bag had me wondering how this was going to work. Walk 18 Golf did a great job of thinking this through with a quick release magnetic hook clasp called “Fildlock V-Buckle”
that easily engages when you get the ends together, but also disengages with the pull of a cord. The first few holes seem a touch ward, but by about hole 4 you quickly get in the habit and don’t even think about it. I also like the cellphone holder on the belt strap which kept my phone handy for taking course pics during my rounds.
The Walk 18 Golf Harness might just be a game changer for anyone who must carry a bag. It isn’t going to replace my push cart, it might just make my walking only trips because it can travel with me when my cart can’t. The easy on/off between shots was way better than expected and the comfort of carrying was certainly increased. It is also very well built and very sturdy which I think makes this a legit option for carry straps. It just might be the next significant carry bag invention; lightweight materials, stand legs, dual straps, and now backpack harness. If you are determined to carry your golf clubs, let Walk 18 Golf Harness lighten the load on your shoulders.
