SLAPPA invested 2 years in the design and testing of the "Bottomless Pit", which has resulted in this uniquely shaped, 8-gallon trolley that fits as carry-on with many airlines. The "Bottomless Pit" features clean lines, 1680D Ballistix nylon which provides protected space for clothing, shoes, and/or large electronics, inner long lock down straps to secure gaming consoles, DJ mixers OR clothing, and a front "quick-access" section that can fit up to an 18" laptop. Also included on the inside are 8 pockets (4 mesh, 4 nylon) for gadgets, passports, cords, power bricks, mice and tickets and SLAPPAs custom-print Damask lining which gives the "Bottomless Pit" a very rich look. On the outside are 3 that blend into the bag, maintaining clean lines while providing fast access storage to pens, money, passport and credit cards and a "reach in top flap" that provides access into the main compartment without zipping open the main face. All pockets and access points feature molded alloy zipper pullers and industrial zipper tapes. A 4-stage trolley handle, 2 hand-carry straps and in-line skate wheels round out this water resistant and puncture proof beauty.
"Over the past 2 years so many customers have asked us to build a series of trolleys, and the "Bottomless Pit" is the first in this series. We focused on building the ultimate 4-day travel trolley that would be highly flexible", said company president Dominick Martinetti. "Once you open the bag fully you are greeted with a huge area which will fit so many different needs, providing a cavernous storage section perfect suited for so many different things, and then the front section is perfect for laptops, documents and all the gadgets and accessories that all people travel with today. Based on my personal trips to Asia, the "Bottomless Pit" is a giant killer and an excellent alternative to large travel suitcases."
In 2002 company President Dominick Martinetti, was unable to find a disc storage solution he felt was suitable for his personal collection, so he developed the idea for the SLAPPA HardBody PRO disc cases and had a factory make a few units for his personal use. Dominick showed his new cases to a few friends and based on your enthusiastic reaction he then realized he had a product others wanted. In June of 2003 SLAPPA was launched into the market via SLAPPA's first website, www.slappa.com and that started a journey where the brand has clearly established itself as a uniquely innovative and highly acclaimed. SLAPPA first attacked the CD and DVD storage market with a laser focus on building the ultimate CD storage cases and DVD storage cases. SLAPPA designed and received a patent for the revolutionary d2 pocket system and launched SLAPPA's HardBody PRO disc storage cases, which were immediately adopted by niche audiophile circles and the DJ and Pro-Audio world. Looking to further advance disc storage solutions, the company then scored another patent with its d2i slide-n-lock pages, enabling each page 'square" to attach and separate from one another, providing the most flexible disc storage system on the market. SLAPPA's HardBody PRO line of CD and DVD disc storage cases have won countless awards and have repeatedly been recognized as the best disc storage system in the market.
In 2005 SLAPPA then set its sights on building the ultimate laptop backpacks and cases, and launched its Velocity Spyder laptop backpack and its HardBody PRO Laptop cases. The company found immediate success amongst travelers and gamers who wanted serious protection and unique styling for your laptops. As the companies product line expanded, so did its distribution. In 2006 the company launched its second website www.slappa.ca, and expanded into 8 international markets. In 2009 SLAPPA made great strides further broadening its product line, launching products to meet specific needs of gamers and women. The company leveraged its expertise of EVA case manufacturing, and introduced protective cases for PSP, Nintendo DS and netbooks. Additionally the company signed partnership agreements with the two best LAN Gaming teams in the world, Fnatic and SK Gaming. 2010 marks a year of further transformation and innovation for SLAPPA.
The company continues to push the creative boundaries of the bag and case market, launching its exclusive M.A.S.K. Backpack and M.A.S.K. Shoulder bags which enable you to customize the inside and outside. As part of the M.A.S.K. launch, SLAPPA also introduced its Visual Impact Artist collections; products that feature the work of artists from around the globe. The company further expanded its distribution launching www.slappa.com.au, and becoming available in 13 markets. Approaching its 7th anniversary, the company has now been acclaimed by more than 200 audio and gadget publications.
