SALT LAKE CITY (August 16, 2012) - OGIO
, one of the most recognized leaders in golf travel, today announced that the company's sales have more than doubled for its golf travel bag collection. In addition, more than 150 Pro Tour golfers now use OGIO golf travel gear while on tour.
"With OGIO-exclusive innovations and fashion-forward styles, we are able to offer golfers a variety of truly functional golf travel bags, designed and fashioned for each individual's travel style and personality," said Tom Gocke, OGIO's Global Vice President. "We've become the go-to choice and our growth is a reflection of that."
Staying true to OGIO's unique combination of adrenaline-driven styling, supreme durability and innovative design, the travel collection includes four bags specifically designed for golfers' personal travel preferences. Each bag also comes with matching support pieces, such as carry-on luggage bags, backpacks, messengers and sports fitness bags. The Mammoth
, OGIO's largest travel bag, is made for the avid golfer who frequently travels with his clubs. Key features include four swivel wheels on the bottom of the bag to roll while upright; removable shoe bag and internal crush-resistant hat pocket.
Slightly smaller than the Mammoth, the Monster
is the ideal companion for a golfer who travels a few times a year. Its key features include oversized, off-road wheels and two large pockets that protect shoes and other fragile items from being smashed.
For the less serious traveler, the Straight Jacket
and the Yeti
are lightweight bags large enough to hold a tour or staff bag and secure it in place with internal straps. Both travel bags are tip-resistant, allowing golfers to travel with ease.
"My golf gear is my livelihood, and I only trust OGIO to secure it all as I travel around the world," said Aaron Baddeley, OGIO Ambassador and PGA Tour player.
