Innovative Silencer™ Club Protection System Eliminates Golf Club Noise

SALT LAKE CITY (Oct. 11, 2011) – OGIO, the designer of innovative and uniquely styled golf bags, apparel and accessories, today announced the introduction of the Chamber, the newest addition to its award-winning arsenal of golf bags. The Chamber is the first-of-its-kind to feature the Silencer™ Club Protection System. This distinctive and state-of-the-art system developed by OGIO features 14 individual compartments that incorporate a protective membrane to center and gently hold the club’s shaft.

“The Chamber is a true combination of everything our brand stands for: groundbreaking technology, intelligent design, comfort and style,” said Tony Palma, CEO, OGIO. “By offering golfers a revolutionary feature such as the Silencer, we ensure that players can keep their attention on the course and off of the distractions that clamoring clubs can make, while also protecting equipment from scratches and dents.”

Featuring a compression-fit mechanism bottom, which incorporates flex grab teeth for added stability, the Chamber cart bag properly secures each club grip to keep it from swinging around in the bag and hitting other clubs. Working in tandem with the custom-designed, high-grade polymer membranes at the top of the bag, 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 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

“We’re excited to be the first golf bag manufacturer to create the groundbreaking Silencer™ Club Protection System, and look forward to continuing to develop new innovations that add to the ease and enjoyment found in the game of golf,” said Palma.

The Chamber will be available in charcoal/burst and black tech finishes at specialty golf retailers beginning January 2012. For more information about OGIO, please visit www.OGIO.com or visit us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/OGIO.
