Fitness Award Will Be Featured In Health magazine's June issue, on newsstands now

BOULDER, Colo. (May 29, 2008) — Sherpani, creators of a full line of urban, backcountry, professional and baby packs designed exclusively for women who want to bring some style to their urban and outdoor adventures, announced today that its Blaze Sport Duffel won top fitness pick for the Apparel/Bag category in Health magazine's 2008 America's Healthiest Fitness Awards. The fitness awards appear in Health magazine's June issue, on newsstands today.

America's Healthiest Fitness Awards spotlight the best buys for women across the fitness spectrum. Winners are selected by a panel of top fitness experts, who evaluate submissions on effectiveness, innovation and ease of use, among other criteria.

“It is an honor that the Blaze was selected for the Health fitness awards,” said Ed Ruzic, president of Sherpani. “The Blaze is new for 2008 and it has already become a signature piece of the Sherpani sport collection. It is stylish, functional and simple – all things that are important to the Sherpani community as well as the readers of Health.”

Sport Collection – Blaze Sport Duffel (MSRP $64.95)
The Blaze Sport Duffel is a durable, water-resistant bag with Sherpani's signature floral lining. With an ergonomic design, padding and ventilation, the bag was created to fit comfortably against your back so it can be worn as a backpack or carried as a duffel, with backpack straps that can be conveniently tucked away. The large main compartment features internal organizational compartments and has plenty of room for a variety of gym gear, as well as an internal pocket that is compatible with a hydration bladder. It also features an external fleece-lined pocket for cell phones or sunglasses and two external mesh water bottle pockets. The 9-inch-by-18-inch-by-11-inch bag comes in flame, sky, orchid, sweet pea, cornsilk and black.

Our bags are true originals because: we are confident enough to be different.
