Thule Expands Bag Offering to Highly Functional and Stylish Duffle Bags

Press Release   •   Jul 31, 2013 06:00 EDT

Coming off the success of the Thule Crossover and Thule EnRoute bag lines, Thule is expanding into the duffle category with the new Thule Chasm line. Available in five sizes and in five colors, the new Thule Chasm line offer travelers a durable and weather resistant way to pack and carry their belongings.

With an oversized, wide mouth opening and removable backpack straps these rugged, weather resistant duffels are your go-to gear hauler for any adventure.

“When developing the Thule Chasm series, we focused on two concepts ‒ strap management and ease of access”, says Graham Jackson, Global Product Manager Thule Group. “We made sure the shoulder straps were easily removable and the duffel bag straps able to cleanly store along the side of the bag. When looking at ease of access, the oversized wide mouth opening makes packing a breeze. And when in a roof box or airplane overhead, you can easily access the bag’s contents.”

Made from environmentally friendly PVC, these bags feature:

  • Oversized, wide mouth opening makes it easy to pack and easy to get to your gear
  • Side access makes it easy to reach the main compartment from any angle
  • Duffel straps stow cleanly along the side of the duffel to keep them out of the way when not in use
  • Straps quickly convert the bag from a backpack to a duffel
  • Internal mesh pockets keep your gear organized
  • External compression straps prevent bag contents from falling to the bottom of the bag when in backpack mode
  • Daisy chain lash points let you attach the duffel to a roof rack or gear to the bag
  • Durable, waterproof tarpaulin fabric stands up on its own for easy packing but easily folds for storage
  • Padded bottom cushions your gear from the ground
  • Locking zippers deter thieves (lock sold separately)
  • Exterior stash pocket stores small items

Available – October 1, 2013
