2019 Switch Designs Ski Gear
After being dissatisfied with the ski boot bags on the market, Switch Designs founder James Poss took his Business Degree, design experience, and passion for skiing into his own hands. Although he plans to expand into a full luggage line, he first created the Switch ski boot bag to change the way we transport our ski gear.
James commented on his inspiration for creating a new ski boot bag, “In addition to a tired, retro-in-a-bad-way aesthetic, I saw two major functional flaws in traditional ski boot bags: Most boot + gear bags on the market work only as a backpack OR as a wheeled suitcase-style bag, and are very cumbersome to carry any other way, limiting flexibility in pairing with other luggage. These ski boot bags are also bulky in all dimensions, resulting in awkward packing constraints and storage problems at home and on the go.”
Switch’s ski boot bag solves both issues with its patent-pending transformational design, offering equal comfort both as a backpack and in its slim “tote bag” configuration. With just one reversible buckle, you can instantly convert from backpack to tote to pair with other luggage, fit into airplane overhead bins, and pack into cars or narrow spaces at home. Poss spent the last two years in Jackson Hole working on product development, testing and traveling with numerous rounds of prototypes, and is excited to bring his vision for the ski boot bag to you this season.
The first pro-member on the team is Magnus Graner, who Poss selected for embodying what Switch is all about, “He is doing with skiing what I’m trying to do with Switch—taking a totally fresh look at his sport, finding ways to push boundaries that no one even knew existed, and doing it all with style,” Poss told Newschoolers.
