OGIO, the San Diego-based sports bag design and manufacturing brand, has launched its first women’s collection, XIX (“Nineteen”). According to a press release, OGIO’s XIX line, paying homage to golf’s 19th hole, is designed by women for women and will feature two golf bags, backpacks, totes, drawstring bags, crossbody bags and duffel bags.
“It’s exciting to be leading an important and long overdue change in the golf industry,” said Ellen Leung, senior designer of the XIX collection. “We didn’t just take the men’s bags and make them pink. Instead we started from scratch with a problem-solving mindset and a singular focus to make the best bags both on and off the course for women.”
Each golf bag features a co-axial strap system that allows the female golfer to adjust the bag vertically and also laterally. They also feature back padding shaped to the female body and an interior fleece-lined jewelry pocket and come in five colors and prints.
XIX also features backpacks and crossbody bags as well as duffel and tote bags in multiple colors, as per the release, created for the woman on the go.
XIX golf bags cost $249.99, backpacks and duffel bags are available for $119.99, totes go for $79.99 and drawstring/crossbody bags retail for $39.99. The entire OGIO XIX collection is available on OGIO.com and Amazon.
