OGIO, which took the US golf market by storm last year, is officially launching its award-winning 2014 bag range in the UK.
The new Gotham Aquatech bag, a completely new take on waterproof bag design, has been designed to reduce the amount of zips used – an area prone to water entry – while still increasing internal storage capacity.
Designed like Batman’s cape, the two main zips allow the larger pockets to expand once opened, exposing a generous and easy-to-access space and further internal pockets.
Gotham is also a lightweight design, weighing less than 5lbs, and is offered only in a stylish matt black.
It comes with OGIO’s proprietary four point-strap system and seven-way Holster performance top, with side putter pit and integrated grab handle. Combined with a proprietary blend of water and stain-repellent fabrics and evolutionary construction techniques, the Gotham golf bag collection delivers a head-turning appearance with a feather-light feel.
The Gotham, RRP £249, was originally scheduled for a 2015 release but has been brought forward because of the positive reception towards the concept after it was unveiled in January at the PGA 2014 Merchandise Show in Orlando.
It’s because of products like the Gotham and Chamber that OGIO is stocked in shops at a staggering 78 of the USA’s top 100 destination courses, including Pebble Beach, PGA West, Trump National, Doral, Pinehurst and Whistling Straits, to name but a few.
PGA Tour stars Aaron Baddeley, Kevin Streelman, Chris Stroud, and hundreds of other Tour pros use OGIO bags and luggage – not just on the course, but also when travelling.
The 2014 range also includes four stunning new lines for ladies – the Diva Luxe and Featherlite Luxe stand bags, and the Majestic and Duchess cart bags; and four new co-ordinated collections, with everything from boot-bag and backpack, through to travel-bag and suitcases.
From the best-selling, six-pocket Grom stand bag, with its 14-way Diamond Performance stand top with oversized putter pit, integrated front handle and ground-breaking SHOXXTM X4 suspension carrying system – which has automatically adjusting elastomeric straps to equalise bag load and reduce strain – to the stylish Aquatech waterproof collection, with its hydrophobic material and thermo-welded seam technology, every OGIO product is manufactured to the highest standards while remaining aesthetically pleasing.
A spokesman for OGIO said: “We appreciate that you may be able to buy a similar product at a cheaper price – but the similarities will end once you start using an OGIO product. Not all golf bags are the same. You do get what you pay for – the quality will speak for itself. OGIO is unashamedly a high-end product, designed with the user in mind and illustrates you don’t need to sacrifice usability just because a product looks good.”
