Ultra-premium collection features world's finest fabric, American craftsmanship, patent-pending Train Reaction™ system
Inspired by the needs of discerning globetrotters and golfers seeking the most durable and stylish luggage, the TRS Ballistic line consists of a carry-on ($699), check-in ($750) and XL check-in ($799) bags and is also available as a set ($2,248).
Amazing functional capabilities of this unique collection include:
Train Reaction System - Club Glove's patent-pending method for drastically reducing the effort needed to pull or push gear by creating a perfect center of gravity to make bags feel weightless
Patented, Ultra-Durbale Wheel Base and Retractable Handle - engineered to provide ideal balance and convenience
Intelligent Design - premium zippers, easy-to-open flap, internal webbing with superior tensile strength
Packing Modules - perfect compartmentalization of clothing, toiletries, shoes and other items
"I looked for the very best of everything to create a luxury luggage set with a classic look, extreme durability and mind-blowing performance," says company founder Jeff Herold. "This is simply a better way to pack and that's proven by its rapid adoption on the PGA Tour."
Each piece in the TRS Ballistic line is constructed from U.S. woven 1050d CORDURA® Ballistic nylon fabric. The world's most ideal material for high-end luggage, it offers double the abrasion resistance and four times the tear resistance of other premium fabrics, yet is rarely used by competing brands due to the high cost.
Among the dozens of Tour stars who have already "Gone Ballistic" are world No. 1 Luke Donald, Hunter Mahan, Mark Wilson, Justin Leonard, Chris DiMarco, Bill Haas, Angel Cabrera, Ricky Barnes, Tommy Armour III, Rich Beem, Trevor Immelman, Charles Howell III, David Duval, Chad Campbell, Josh Teater, Peter Tomasulo, Marc Turnesa, Greg Chalmers, Matt Bettencourt, Kris Blanks, Peter Hansen, David Hearn, Robert Karlsson, John Senden, Joe Durant, Billy Mayfair, Chris Stroud, Omar Uresti, Tom Pernice, Jr., Andres Romero, Brandt Jobe, John Rollins and Carl Pettersson.
Built with a lifetime of use in mind, Club Glove's American-made products include the Last Bag, which was honored by Golf World magazine as one of the game's "10 Best Innovations." This signature golf travel bag was recognized for its extreme durability, extra thick foam padding and patented high-impact plastic wheel base that cradles and shields the bottom of the bag.
Club Glove is the No. 1 golf travel bag brand at all PGA and Champions Tour events. The Darrell Survey confirmed that the brand is preferred by 90 percent of PGA Tour Players. Selected by six U.S. Ryder Cup teams, Club Glove's golf bags have been a fixture at green grass and off course shops for nearly a decade and are available in stand, cart and Sunday versions.
