Ogio to launch apparel range in UK

Kevin Streelman (pictured) won the prestigious Travelers Championship wearing the new Ogio apparel range and giving a preview of designs for the 2015 collection. Fourth-placed Aaron Baddeley was also sporting the new range complete with Ogio golf shoes.

Streelman and Baddeley are among a number of US PGA Tour pros who already use Ogio travel bags and luggage to get from event to event on the tour. But the brand is launching its own apparel and shoe lines in the UK next year, to complement the high-end sports luggage for which it has become known.

Ogio’s spring-summer 2015 UK collection will be available for pre-order from August. The range includes prints, plaids, stripes and solids designed to get noticed on the golf course, on the town and in the boardroom, says Ogio. The designs’ lightweight, easy-care fabric is constructed with UV protection and anti-microbial material that wicks moisture away from the skin, while the performance-textured, mechanical-stretch material allows for a full range of motion.

A spokesperson for Ogio in the UK stated, “Ogio’s golf bags and sports luggage have always been renowned for both their engineering excellence and good looks, and the apparel line, which will launch in the UK in 2015, will bear those very same hallmarks of quality. The range is being showcased this season on the PGA Tour by both Kevin Streelman and Aaron Baddeley and they looked great in the extensive coverage they were both afforded at the weekend. The basics are stylish and technologically advanced to assist in performance, as illustrated at the weekend.”

The 2015 Ogio apparel range starts at £49 with more details at: www.ogio-golf.co.uk
