Thule launches new line of Technical Backpacks and introduces the new Thule T2 at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, in Salt Lake City, USA Aug 5-8


Seymour, Conn., July 27, 2015 –
After successfully entering into the technical backpacking category this past March with the Thule Capstone and the Thule Guidepost - named one of Backpacker Magazine’s Best New Packs of 2015, Thule is at it again. Introducing the next installment in their line of award winning Technical Backpacks, the Thule Versant Backpacking Series and Thule Stir Hiking Series. By integrating Thule technology, design aesthetics, and lab and life testing, these two models allow you to put in the miles in comfort.

In addition, Thule will be celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the iconic Thule T2 with the launch of an all-new model. Its sleeker design is focused on ease of use, increased vehicle and ground clearance, and tool free installation. Using consumer feedback in conjunction with both lab and life tests, this Thule T2 is now even more bomb proof.

Held in Salt Lake City, Utah every year, Outdoor Retailer Summer Market is the largest outdoor sports show of its kind and offers retailers, reps and manufacturers a chance to come together to showcase products and learn about innovations in the industry. This tradeshow is especially important to Thule, as the wide range of products and categories offered by the brand are available for retailers from all over the world to interact with.
