Reef releases one-bag philosophy inspired travel line
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 23 August, 2013 : - - Reef is set to release the Reef Shelter Supply Collection of premium, multi-functional gear for the well-traveled surfer. Reef Shelter Supply consists of stylish yet functional water resistant packs, surfable walkshorts, a waterproof breathable rain shell and several other key items intended to enhance the travel experience. Set to hit retail July 1st, 2013, the collection will range in price from £17 to £120.
Understanding today’s baggage restrictions and a globetrotter’s need to travel light, items in the Shelter Supply Collection are designed to minimize the load and maximize the function in the spirit of Reef’s one bag mentality.
Reef Director of Men’s Apparel, Eric Gigler, added, “Our goal was to create a collection of pieces that make your surf travel easier, have a high level of functionality and become go-to items. Think of getting a call to go on a surf trip tomorrow. What do you throw into your carry on duffel?”
Anchoring this collection is the new Reef Diamond Tail backpack, made of durable 600 Denier Polyester with a double coating of polyurethane for water repellency on the backside. It features a laptop case closest to the body to deter theft, along with a back entry safety pocket for your passport.
The easy-access top pocket with soft-brushed lining, audio/mp3 cord port, side water bottle holders, and side compression straps, make it a traveler’s best mate at £60.
Reef keeps the journeyman dry and warm with the Reef Squall and Reef Quilt Jackets retailing for £100 and £110. The Reef Squall is a 2.5-layer waterproof rain shell made of 100% Nylon. The two-way adjustable hood and shock cord waistband adjustment round out this light, breathable weather piece.
The warmer Reef Quilt jacket is a premium quality offering with 100% Nylon-quilted exterior shell and waistband shock cord adjustment. Drawing on Reef’s Latin heritage, it has a Serape inspired striped interior body lining and Polyester fill for added warmth.
The Reef Duffel, retailing for £85, is a traveler’s necessity carry-on with backpack straps, made with 600 Denier Polyester and a double coating of Polyurethane for water repellency on the backside. It also features pop color lining with chambray binding and a wet/dry compartment on the bottom. The duffel also features a collapsible changing circle for a post surf mobile changing station.
The new Reef Shelter Supply collection also includes a trio of tech wallets: the Bivalve Wallet, Two Snap Wallet, and Travel Doc. The Travel Doc features 600 Denier Polyester with double Polyurethane coating as well as zippered long pocket, coin pocket, ticket pocket, and exterior sleeve for a boarding pass.
The Shelter Supply collection will deliver to core and specialty retailers around the world for Fall 2013.
