Thanks for all the recommendations guys!  For those using OGIO, does it stand nicely without extending the legs?
Yes, they stand very firmly upright without extending the legs

@Derek,

My experience with Ogio hasn't been great. In fact, it was disappointing. I bought one a few years from Golf House and it was quite a top of the line standbag. When I stuffed the bag with clubs and accessories, the legs gave way when I put it on tiled floors. The legs started to slip slowly and performed a Yi Zhi Ma like a ballet dancer. I brought it back to Golf House and got a new replacement which didn't last too long. 

As for whether the bag will stand nicely, I can't remember but I think it was a bit lop sided mainly due to the uneven weight distribution. Can't recall what happened to the bag but eventually i got rid of it.

I don't think most stand bag will stand on its own as it is too small to be able to balance  by itself although I used to have a hybrid bag (cart bag with legs) and it can stand on its own as well and one can choose to use it as stand bag as well.

Derek, why not consider a 9" cart bag? There are light weight ones and the size isn't too big.

Ya, Yi zhi ma No in less than a year! After one time yzm, the bag will do it whenever there is opportunity to do so.....ke ke ke.  Same here, I am using a Ogio Vapour. But I like the way Ogio organise the divider thot.

I have since put a limiter, now yzm no more!
