Introducing Clive-a bold new concept featuring space-age backpacks, travel bags and accessories for sport and everyday use.

Clive began in January 1999 and will debut its fine products at the Action Sports Retailer trade show on 9 September 1999 in San Diego, CA.

Clive consists of Marketing Director Tim Swart, formerly of SPY Optic, and Product Manager Todd Finney, formerly of Salomon. Recently joining the organization is Sales Manager Pete McAfee. Pete has many years of sales experience in the action sports industry and was most recently the National Sales Manager for DC Shoe Co. “I am excited about the opportunities for Clive in this dynamic marketplace,” says Pete. Tim Swart adds, “we are happy to have him (Pete) as a key figure in the Clive organization. His experience and enthusiasm are quite refreshing.”

The products will be distributed primarily through leading action sports and specialty retailers in the United States and internationally. The products will include a variety of backpacks, duffel bags, gear bags, shoulder bags, hip packs and many other accessories. According to Product Manager Finney, “people will undoubtedly be surprised with the variety and innovation of the Clive product line. There is also an attention to detail that does not exist in the market as it stands today.” The Clive product selection is made of the newest materials and expertly tailored for distinguished consumers of discernment and good taste.

Clive is currently based in beautiful Cardiff-by-the-Sea, CA and will be relocating to its new World Headquarters in scenic Vista, CA by September 1999.
