Urban Armor Gear and Brand Ambassador JT Holmes Take Flight

Most know the work of JT Holmes.  He is a world-renowned skier and a BASE jumper.  Recently, he jumped from atop of a hot air balloon in a wingsuit and led proximity flybys at 140+ MPH.  This event was filmed by a UAG helicopter.

Says founder, Steve Armstrong, “JT has been brought on as the most extreme product tester UAG could find. Our partnership with him will provide the support and resources that will allow him to take his career to the next level. JT’s lifestyle reflects the core values of UAG.  Fortitude and style, partnered with pushing the limits of every endeavor on all his adventures, makes us honored to ingrain him into our brand as an ambassador.”
