CORDURA® Ballistic Fabric Featured in First-Class Club Glove TRS Ballistic Luggage Line

WICHITA, Kan. — March 31, 2011 — INVISTA's CORDURA® brand announces the adoption of CORDURA® fabric by Club Glove, a leader in the design and manufacture of premium travel bags, golf bags, club covers, accessories and luggage. Designed for the discerning golfer or globetrotter seeking ultra durable yet stylish luggage, the Club Glove TRS Ballistic Luggage Line is constructed from U.S. woven 1050d CORDURA® Ballistic nylon fabric.

Available in three styles and sizes — carry-on, check-in and extra large check-in bag — the Club Glove TRS Ballistic Luggage collection incorporates a ultra-durable Club Glove wheel base and retractable handle for ideal balance and convenience, adding to the travel ease for the on-the-go consumer. In addition to top-of-the-line zippers, an easy-to-open flap design and internal webbing with exceptional tensile strength, the CORDURA® Ballistic fabric provides a durable exterior by offering extraordinary abrasion and tear resistance.

"The TRS Ballistic line was inspired by the needs of PGA Tour pros who travel to make their living, said Jeff Herold, founder, Club Glove. I simply looked for the very best of everything, especially the materials, and added the functionality that's distinguished Club Glove products for more than 20 years. What you get is a luxury luggage set made from U.S. woven INVISTA 1050 denier CORDURA® Ballistic fabric that has a classic look, extreme durability and mind-blowing performance."

The line of luggage showcases Club Glove's renowned Train Reaction™ system that drastically reduces the amount of effort needed to pull or push gear by creating the perfect center of gravity to generate a sense of weightlessness. The bags also feature multiple packing modules for compartmentalization of clothing, toiletries, shoes and other items. The CORDURA® fabric body provides added strength, enhanced performance and increased durability, which compliments this premium luggage line designed to meet the needs of today's savvy travelers.
