The Ultimate Athlete Utilizes and Tests UAG’s Products In The Most Harsh Conditions
Costa Mesa, CA – July 21st, 2015 – UAG announced today their partnership with JT Holmes, world-renowned skier, speed rider, wingsuit pilot, and award winning stunt coordinator to become the company’s brand ambassador. Holmes brings his courageous spirit and ongoing quest to test the limits of his sporting lifestyle to the brand. He will aid UAG in sharing their message of ultimate protection and ruggedness with likeminded enthusiasts.
Holmes’ role will be two-fold: working as an educator of UAG’s brand to the outdoor culture while also becoming the ultimate product tester. JT and his team use UAG’s cases to protect their electronic devices on their travels to remote environments, as they document his stunts and adventures.
According to founder, Steve Armstrong, “JT was chosen because he’s the most extreme product tester we could find. Our partnership with him will provide the support and resources to take his career to the next level, while he provides valuable feedback to our design & engineering teams about how our products handle adverse conditions. JT’s lifestyle of fortitude and style, along with pushing the limits of adventure, makes us honored to ingrain him into our brand.”
To celebrate the relationship with Holmes and the Urban Armor Gear, a specially designed wing suit is being created that will be used in his upcoming videos. In addition, Holmes and his team will be piloting a UAG-branded race truck in a 500 mile off-road race, titled ‘Best in the Desert – Vegas to Reno’ on August 14th. Keep up with J.T. Holmes’ stories & lifestyle on Facebook & Instagram and learn more about UAG at UrbanArmorGear.com
