James Poss '14A ski boot bag produced by Switch Designs, founded by James Poss ’14, has been featured on the Bloomberg Pursuits website.

The award-winning bag can function as both a backpack and a slim tote/duffle bag. With just one reversible buckle, the bag instantly changes form to pair with other luggage, fit into airplane overhead bins, and pack into cars or narrow spaces at home.

Poss is an entrepreneur and product designer who in 2016 founded Switch Designs, LLC, in Jackson Hole, Wyo., seeking to bring innovation and style to bags for the outdoors. Poss completed the UCLA College Honors program with a B.A. in business-economics. His first product for Switch Designs, a ski boot bag with a patented transformational design, was named an Editors’ Pick and the #1 new ski pack of 2018-19 by Freeskier Magazine.

Poss recently won a 2020 A’Design Award for Cornice, his modern clothing storage/display concept design. He is currently based in Denver, Colo.
