Chums, Inc. Launches Spring 2016 Line


From Chums:

Building off the success of its first line of everyday lifestyle cases for the outdoors, Chums, Inc. today announced the release of its new Accessory Case series for spring 2016. The innovative line features the Essentials, Dopp Kit, Hex Roll Up, Capsule and Downstream cases along with updates to its popular Latitude, Tech and Holster cases.

Designed with organization and protection in mind, the multifunctional lifestyle case series offers various capacities for carrying and organizing tools, electronics, accessories and gear during travel and outdoor activities.

“Staying true to the Chums brand, we’re excited to offer a new line of lifestyle cases to help consumers hang onto their accessories and gear outdoors,” said Tom Ferries, VP Marketing at Chums. “Many organizational options lack durability when subjected to the elements so we’ve designed high quality cases with heavy-duty water-resistant material that’s easy to clean and extremely outdoor friendly. Everyone from backpacking and hiking enthusiasts to hardcore kayakers and campers will find these cases essential for their travels.”

Highlights from the spring ‘16 line include:

The Essentials offers an ultra-low profile case with a padded and fleece-lined sleeve for phones, keys and wallets. An internal zippered pocket and key clip protect important valuables and the water-resistant and easy-to-clean exterior keeps essentials protected from the elements. The Essentials Case comes in 4 colors including Realtree Xtra®.

The new Dopp Kit offers a structured wide mouth opening for easy access and viewing along with a unique zipper construction for maximum space consumption. Two internal zippered pockets maintain organization while hang-on loops make it easy to store belongings from trees, tents and hooks. The Dopp Kit is available in Charcoal and Realtree Xtra®.

The Hex Roll Up is a water-resistant roll-up style accessory organizer with three internal zippered storage compartments. A laminated mesh provides visibility and maximum durability, while an adjustable web strap closure and quick release buckle simplify hanging and transporting. The Hex Roll Up is available in Charcoal, Black and Realtree Xtra®.

The Capsule is a multi-purpose zippered accessory case made of the same heavy duty water-resistant material as the Essentials, Dopp Kit and Hex Roll-Up. ‘Hang on’ handles allow for easy hanging and the tube-like shape makes it simple to pack in larger bags or duffels.

The Downstream Roll-top bag is a water-resistant welded travel case featuring a waterproof main pocket with a roll top closure. Made of a double-sided TPU coated nylon, the Downstream can be worn as a shoulder bag or waist pack and includes a water-resistant exterior front pocket with a drain hole for quick drying. The Downstream is a smart choice for boaters, fisherman, stand-up paddle boarders, kayakers and hikers in need of a personal bag with easy access and a variety of wearable options.

Chums has also updated their water-resistant multi-pocket Latitude7 and Latitude9 travel cases as well as their padded Tech and Holster2 PED cases offering belt attachments for easy access to electronics. The updated cases will be available in Black, Burnt Orange and Realtree Xtra® color options.
