Sportube expands their product line, introducing high-quality ski bags and boot bags to protect all of your gear.

After 20 years of pioneering hard cases, we felt it was time to take it to the next level.” Paul Hields, Founder and President of Sportube products says. “Although many people acknowledge the durability and protection of a Sportube hard case, we understand that the demand is there for soft sided ski and boot bags. We have premium quality bags, but with a twist.”

For the last 20 years, Sportube has been protecting skis and snowboards all over the world. Now they will bring that same passion for protecting equipment to boots and other gear as well.

Sticking true to their reputation of high quality and protection, Sportube has become a real player in the snow sports industry by expanding into the ski bag and boot bag markets. Their new line of bags focus on high quality components that won’t wear out over time and provide more protection than a typical soft bag can offer. Each bag utilizes the strong components from world renowned suppliers like YKK Zippers.

With their diverse line of ski and boot bags, there is a bag for every customer. Their premium line of boot bags, including the Freerider™, Overheader™ and new Cabin Cruiser™, bring you both check-in and carry-on options. Both the Overheader™ and Cabin Cruiser™ meet airline carry-on requirements. The Cabin Cruiser™ is a wheeled carry-on option, while the Overheader™ is a backpack. Specifically designed with comfort in mind, these boot bags are the best fitting on the market when used as a backpack. The new, premium Ski Shield™ single and double ski bags, use new Gear Shield™ technology to protect your skis with hard plastic at both the tip and tail end of the bags. The premium boot bags and Ski Shield™ ski bags are all fully padded with tons of great features that make traveling with your gear easy and worry free.

The Traveler™ series, including both a ski bag and a boot bag, delivers a more affordable line of bags to the market, while still offering high quality materials with expert craftsmanship. The Traveler™ series is a great option for the cost-conscience customer, looking for basic protection from the elements.

Unique to Sportube, all of their ski and boot bags are compatible via Hitchin™ technology. Allowing any of their boot bags to be attached to both Sportube Hard Cases and Ski Shield™ ski bags and wheeled together, effortlessly, as one. When your hands are full at the airport, this will make your transportation of gear, hassle-free.

It was time to break into the soft luggage market,” says Hields, “Continuing with the reputation, respect, and brand recognition that Sportube has earned over the last 20 years.”
