Seattle, WA. â€“ SealLine, the global leader in portable gear protection for challenging environments, has won an award for its Urban Line of PVC-free bags and accessories in the Annual Design Review issue of I.D. Magazine. A total of only 150 pieces were selected from a pool of over 2,000 entries. The SealLine Urban Line was recognized with an honorable mention in the consumer product category.
For over fifty years, the Annual Design Review has recognized the best in product, furniture, graphic and environment design. The featured work is chosen by a jury of leading practitioners, who, along with the I.D. editorial team, focus the abundance of submissions into a clear survey of the state of design. Consumer products discussions were specifically driven by the question, â€œIs it really necessary?â€ And above all, the jury looked for simplicity and ease of use.
â€œWe designed this line not only to meet high SealLine standards for gear protection, but also to incorporate features that meet the daily functional demands of urban customers,â€ said Josh Buesseler, Senior Industrial Designer for Cascade Designs, parent company of SealLine. â€œWe're incredibly honored that the jury recognized our design efforts.â€
SealLine, the leader of dry-storage gear for wet and challenging activities, applied their superior technology to the Urban Line, a series of functional, attractive bags that look good in a professional setting, yet still meets the rugged demands of hard core users.
The bag seams are radio-frequency welded to eliminate sewn seams, so there are no leak paths where water can penetrate. All bags have reflective logos and pull tabs for increased visibility at night. In lieu of hook-and-loop fasteners or side-release buckles, the stainless-steel QuickClip closure won't wear out, and offers a silent, one-handed closure system. Shoulder straps and back panels are breathable, waterproof and ergonomic for the ultimate comfort. The user can show their personality off by choosing from a wide variety of available colors including gray, orange, blue, green and red.
SealLine, a Cascade Designs brand, manufactures essential dry storage products and paddling accessories. SealLine product lines include urban gear protection, electronic cases, dry bags, kayak deck bags and waterproof packs and duffles.
