GolfPod... whole new way to play and travel with your clubs

WHAT IS GOLFPOD?

GolfPod is the world's first hardshell golf travel case and cart bag combo. The U.S. patent pending product combines a variety of exceptional benefits including being compact, lightweight, durable, secure, waterproof, and highly maneuverable even for juniors, women, and senior golfers. The GolfPod can also be fitted directly to the roof rack on most motor vehicles for secure and lockable quick mount and quick release access.

WHAT ARE GOLFPOD'S SPECIFICATIONS?

GolfPod measures 49” high (1250mm) x 11” wide (280mm) x 11” deep (280mm). It weighs unloaded 12.3 lbs (5.6kg).  Fully loaded with golf clubs, balls, tees, umbrella, rain suit, shoes, water bottles, and sundry items, it weighs less than 50 lbs (23kg).
The GolfPod is available in a range of stylish colors and finishes, including the popular Executive Carbon Fiber finish and options for customization and inclusion of a golfer's personal identity, golf club or team.

WHAT ARE GOLFPOD'S KEY BENEFITS?

Besides using the state of the art thermoformed Polycarbonate shells proven in the luggage industry over the past 20 years, which offers a virtually indestructible exterior, GolfPod is water-proof, contains a TSA-approved lock system, holds 18 liters or 64 cubic feet of equipment and accessory items in two accessible and easily visible compartments, which eliminate the need for multiple, separate, and difficult to access zipper pockets. Because of its compact size, GolfPod does not require being checked at the oversize luggage check-in counter nor retrieved at the oversize baggage area. Moreover, as another option for the golf traveler, the GolfPod may be shipped via FEDEX or UPS “as is”, typically saving time and money.

WHEN WILL GOLFPOD BE AVAILABLE?

First shipments of GolfPod are scheduled for early Spring 2017. The product is manufactured in China with an MSRP of US$399.

WHY IS THERE A NEED FOR GOLFPOD?

Aeroe's experienced team of marketers and designers spent over three years analyzing the golf bag and golf travel case markets. The team determined that little, if nothing, had changed or been advanced in these markets for many years. Golfers were eager to eliminate a clumsy step in the journey from home to airport to golf course or just home to golf course. GolfPod provides a more sensible, simple to use alternative and is a more economical solution in the long-run.

With golf's governing bodies seeking ways to increase pace of play, the GolfPod in its own unique way with its mobility, visibility, and accessibility, contributes to this initiative. It reduces a stress level golfers have when traveling with their equipment as well as eliminating those annoying problems traditional golf bags can cause on the golf course.

WHAT OTHER PRODUCTS DOES AEROE OFFER?

To complement the GolfPod, Aeroe designers have developed “The Link.” This accessory enables the GolfPod to be attached to the roof or tailgate of an automobile or on a powered cart or pushcart/trolley without the need for straps or bungee cords. It incorporates an easy to operate, patent pending rack with a unique snap connection and quick release mechanism. Use of the “The Link” connector racks will allow up to four GolfPods to be safely and securely mounted on the roof of most vehicles. The product will be available in Spring 2017 at a MSRP of US$139.
