Huntington Beach, CA and Seattle, WA - December 20, 2017
Quiksilver, adventure sports performance apparel brand, and Pacsafe, travel-security innovator, have teamed up to create two unique bags for Spring/Summer 2018 featuring boardrider specific functions with anti-theft technology. The QUIKSILVER X PACSAFE co-lab offers gear with extra security for adventurers exploring on or off the beaten path. The collection includes two bags for surfers and snowboarders, a 40L Carryon Pack and a 25L Backpack.
“I’ve been a surfer and snowboarder my whole life and know what it’s like to carry everything you own on your back through some exciting but potentially unsafe places,” said Pacsafe VP of Marketing Simon MacGregor. “Having a little bit of added security like lockable zips and bag straps you can loop around an anchor point, makes a huge difference when you want to focus on the ride in front of you, instead of worrying about your gear. We’re stoked to partner up with Quiksilver, who bring generations of authenticity and product knowledge into this collaboration.”
“We’re also stoked to have found a real partner in Pacsafe,” added Ronnie Reyes, Quiksilver’s Global Head of Design. “We both believe boardriding is a universal source of fun, freedom and natural energy, so powerful it transforms lives. It’s great to share that constant pursuit for adventure that unites generations of explorers and boardriders. The Quiksilver x Pacsafe capsule perfectly reflects our ambition to provide the best performance product covering your back when things get heavy, while breathing our original heritage and culture. Tested and approved by our elite team of surfers and snowboarders constantly traveling the globe, these smart products will be your best ally while experiencing life to the fullest - from the beach to the urban jungle and up to the highest mountains.”
QUIKSILVER X PACSAFE
The QUIKSILVER X PACSAFE 40L CARRYON Pack is designed with boardriders in mind, featuring a removable dry pack to help separate things, heavy-duty tarpaulin pockets for wax and fins, and mountains of storage space for a wetsuit, winter layers, clothes, tech and more. The adjustable straps and ergonomic back padding add additional comfort when carting gear on and off the beaten track, while anti-theft technology helps protect the bag’s contents. $189.95
When searching for that next undiscovered ride, it’s important to stay connected with weather reports, flight times and travel alerts. Designed specifically to secure a laptop, tablet and other devices, the QUIKSILVER X PACSAFE 25L BACKPACK offers internal organization for ease of access to technology and extra cushioning to protect it against bumps and knocks during transit. $149.95
Both bags include Pacsafe’s patented anti-theft technology providing that extra barrier against opportunistic theft when journeying to the sea or slopes:
* Delux Roobar™ locking system with interlocking zip pullers for smart zipper security against unwanted access or tampering
* Pacsafe’s best-in-class RFIDsafe™ pocket for protecting personal information from potential scan scams
* PopNLock™ Security Clip which to secure the bag to an immoveable object to deter snatch and run theft
* Extra strong Dyneema® Slashguard® straps to keep the bags in place
* Interwoven wire and tough Dyneema fabric to protect against cut-and-run theft
* Invisible eXomesh® Slashguard lining which acts as a force field for valuables.
At Quiksilver, each seasonal collection is built on a creative immersion to a place reflecting the brand’s strong influence of the Mountain and the Wave. For Spring/Summer 2018, the brand dove into the rich culture of Hawaii. Both bags are finished off with QUIKSILVER X PACSAFE badging and striking Heavy Water boardshort-print lining, which blends Quiksilver’s authentic surf heritage with inspiring blue hues to carry a unique Hawaiian signature.
