This is excellent. All readers know that the ‘Voile Strap’ was conceived by, Voile. Then copied over, and over. Fine, it’s a good thing. But why did it take so long for Voile to get on the case with expanding their line and availability? Perhaps they were too busy using their straps? Voilestraps.com but of course. I caught a few photos of Voile straps around WildSnow HQ.
Edited press release follows:
Voilestraps.com launches with new colors, styles, and custom branding. With a million uses and counting (Voile, master of the understatement), Voile’s legendary orange straps are finally getting their own website, along with a slew of new colors, options, styles, and sizes. Now, there are even more straps to love. Green straps, red straps, black straps, blue straps, extra large straps, extra small straps — you can even get custom branded straps with your company name or logo on them to use as promotional materials or prizes (it’s rumored that a well known political campaign is having several hundred thousand printed up, and that one even ended up on Mars as it was used for wire bundling in the Rover). But perhaps the most exciting addition is the brand new nylon buckle strap. Non-conductive and scratch-free, they’re perfect for electrical, marine, and military use — not to mention as one less thing to worry about in a lightening storm. From backpacking to bike touring, fishermen to first lady, there’s a Voile Strap for everyone.
