I have had three ping bags in 30 years. The last two (including this one) were the Hoofer bag for that year. The only reason why I got a new one was because after almost 20 years I finally wore it out. Each time they have made significant improvements. The 2020 bag is also a huge improvement. They finally figured out the backpack straps and have made it the perfect bag. The pockets and padding have made it a comfortable to carry. As long as I can still carry a bag, I will continue to carry a Hoofer.
