Just about everything in golf has become adjustable, so why not the golf bag?

That’s the motivation behind Nike’s new Hyperadapt bag. Lightweight on its own, the bag features a series of detachable pockets that let the user reduce the number of pockets (and thus the weight), depending on the needs or the conditions of a particular day.

The bag’s four pockets all can be detached via buckle clips, turning the lightweight stand bag into a single-strap club carrier. The pockets are clipped to the bag on its external frame supports. The large apparel pocket can be detached and serve as a club carrier for a range session with just a few clubs.

The four pockets include a waterproof pocket, a cooler pocket, a large cargo pocket and a large waterproof apparel pocket.

At its heaviest, the bag weighs a little over five pounds, while the range bag weighs less than a pound.

Now available online and in shops, the bag retails for $350.
