Sportube Hires The Walton Works as PR Agency of Record

Vail, CO (August 20, 2010) – Sportube, manufacturer and distributor of the World’s #1 hard-sided ski, snowboard and fly fishing travel cases and accessories, announced today the hiring of The Walton Works as their public relations connector effective immediately.

All Sportube cases are blow molded from High-Density Polyethylene, which while being strong and durable is very lightweight. Each case is designed to protect valuable sports equipment from the abuses of airline check-in or shipping via carriers such as UPS and FedEx. Additionally, when strapped to the roof of a vehicle, each case acts to protect your gear from road salt, dirt and grime.

“For years we have seen an increase in sales to customers wanting to ship their gear to resorts,” says Paul Hields, President of Sportube. “In a Sportube your equipment is protected from the abuses of travel, your tube will last indefinitely, you can lock the case to secure the contents and you don’t need any additional packaging. We’re ready to push forward with our sales and marketing efforts to get our story and product information out to the consumers.”

“Sportube makes incredible, functional and durable cases that are top in the market,” says Todd Walton, president and founder of The Walton Works. “The design impresses from the first time you see one and use them. Friends shipped skis to Crested Butte in the Series 3 a year ago and I was immediately impressed. From a snowsports perspective, it makes the most sense to ship your gear to your destination in a Sportube. It’s cheaper and you don’t have to deal with the airline cost and hassle.”
