SALT LAKE CITY (July 26, 2012) - OGIO
today announced that the company has experienced 70 percent year-to-date growth in their overall golf cart bag category sales. Led by the success of the Chamber golf cart bag
, OGIO continues its golf business growth while continuing to build its reputation for offering the best line-up of cart bags available in the market. The Chamber bag's innovative, state-of-the-art Silencer™ Club Protection System have set it apart from any other golf cart bag available.
"We have already doubled our sales forecast for the OGIO Chamber bag," says Joe Shepard, Merchant-Golf Accessories at PGA TOUR Superstore. "This one-of-a-kind bag not only features all of the usual bells and whistles golfers desire in a cart bag, it also includes additional innovations that didn't exist until this unique bag's introduction."
The Silencer™ Club Protection System features a compression-fit mechanism bottom which incorporates flex grab teeth for added stability. This innovation properly secures each club grip to keep it from swinging around in the bag and hitting other clubs. The bag's 14 individual compartments each feature a custom-designed, high-grade polymer membrane to center and gently hold the club's shaft, protecting the equipment from scratches and dents. The Chamber offers unparalleled protection for shafts and heads by eliminating constant clanking when riding in a cart or carrying the bag on the course.
"The features of the Silencer™ Club Protection System are extremely appealing to consumers because it offers golfers an added comfort and worry-free transport for their most prized-possession: their golf clubs," Tony Palma, CEO of OGIO, explains. "Retailers continue to report strong sales of the OGIO Chamber bag."
The Chamber's features include:
• The Silencer™ Club Protection System provides incredible protection for club shafts and heads combined with silencing technology that greatly minimizes the unpleasant sound of clanking clubs
• ZBP™ (Zipperless Ball Pocket) allows for convenient, one-handed access to the pocket's contents
• Features a weather-resistant, fleece-lined valuables pocket, insulated cooler pocket, umbrella containment system and a snap on, zippered rain cover
