(HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA) – Club Glove® – a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of premium golf bags, club covers, travel bags, accessories and luggage – announces it will sponsor EAA AirVenture’s Young Eagles Celebrity Golf Classic on Wednesday, July 27 and exhibit its industry leading products during the EAA AirVenture Convention, July 25-31 at the Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Featuring popular sports and aviation celebrities such as Ken Griffey Jr., Thurman Thomas, Sean Tucker and Mike Goulian, the annual charity golf tournament held at Oshkosh Country Club raises money to fund programs for more than 80,000 youth pilots.

“Supporting the EAA Young Eagles is an investment to strengthen the aviation community, a valued market segment for Club Glove products,” says Jeff Herold, company founder and a private pilot. “Our extremely lightweight, ultra-durable luggage is designed to perfectly mesh with the needs of pilots and is the preferred choice of commercial and recreational flyers.”

A wide variety of the company’s products – including the TRS Ballistic line of ultra-premium luggage and Scheyden Precision Eyewear – will be showcased during EAA Oshkosh at Hangar B / Booth #2019.

Inspired by the needs of discerning globetrotters seeking the most durable and stylish luggage, the TRS Ballistic line is constructed from U.S. woven 1050d CORDURA® Ballistic nylon fabric. The world’s most ideal material for high-end luggage, it offers double the abrasion resistance and four times the tear resistance of other premium fabrics, yet is rarely used by competing brands due to the high cost.

Amazing functional capabilities of this unique collection include:

• Train Reaction System – Club Glove’s patent-pending method for drastically reducing the effort needed to pull or push gear by creating a perfect center of gravity to make bags feel weightless

• Patented, Ultra-Durbale Wheel Base and Retractable Handle – engineered to provide ideal balance and convenience

• Intelligent Design – premium zippers, easy-to-open flap, internal webbing with superior tensile strength

• Packing Modules – perfect compartmentalization of clothing, toiletries, shoes and other items

Club Glove is the No. 1 golf travel bag brand at all PGA and Champions Tour events. The Darrell Survey confirmed that the brand is preferred by 90 percent of PGA Tour Players. Selected by six U.S. Ryder Cup teams, Club Glove’s golf bags have been a fixture at green grass and off course shops for nearly a decade and are available in stand, cart and Sunday versions.

Ideal for flying, Scheyden’s diverse product range offers supreme functionality and superb sun protection. The brand’s Classic FlipUps allow pilots to effortlessly adapt to changing light conditions. Frames feature superior strength and heat resistant properties, helping them retain their shape far more than competitors’ models. Additional models include the Composite Hybrid collection, Fixed Gear designs and Dual RX styles.

Hand-ground and polished, Scheyden’s lenses feature a hydrophobic coating to repel water and perspiration, several layers of magnesium hexafluoride to diffuse ambient light and protect pupils from harsh reflections and a scratch resistant top coat.

Designed and manufactured to exacting standards, Scheyden Precision Eyewear is available at better commercial aviation and custom eyewear retailers nationwide.
