A discussion with my friend recently was about the gaming lifestyle in the Philippines. While we already know that the gaming industry will grow even more in 2018, we also predicted that gaming apparel will also be en vogue this year. Soon enough, we will also see gaming jerseys being strut around by both gamers and non-gamers in malls the same way other people wear NBA sports apparels. With that in mind, ASUS Republic of Gamers probably also thought of the same thing when they announced the availability of their ROG Lifestyle Collection last December.
“We believe that ASUS Republic Of Gamers is one of the best gaming brand locally and internationally. Right now we are being acknowledged as a trendsetter when it comes to gaming machines. This December we are proud to formally announce the arrival of the ROG Lifestyle Collection which completes one’s gaming ecosystem,” shares George Su, Country Manager of ASUS Philippines System Business Group.
“The Republic is committed to empower its Citizens to the best possible way and the arrival of the ROG Lifestyle Collection is one of our small efforts to overall uplift the ROG brand and connect it to our loyal fans and Filipino gaming enthusiasts,” Su concluded.
Tees and bags that are iconic coupled with ROG emblem plus gaming and street culture inspired designs that will allow its owner to strive to challenge, compete and win, while showing off your unique gaming flair with style. The ROG Collection not only boasts its unique designs, but also is proud of its materials fully equipped for battle. The ROG t-shirts feature a classic rib crew-neck designs, made from high quality 100% cotton and hemmed together for comfort and longevity even after wearing from one activity to another. The ROG Collection is all about attitude, style and faith.
The ROG apparel is perfect for people who want to join and be part of the Republic. Wearing one is a direct testament of its support to ASUS Republic Of Gamers and to the whole Republic. Through this effort ASUS ROG dares to challenge the current gaming landscape, showcasing more than what they can offer to their fans and to all Filipino gaming enthusiasts but more importantly to support the Citizens of the Republic. For ASUS, the ROG Collection is not only for gaming but for every day, everywhere.
With the ROG gaming laptop bags, you can take your game anywhere with the new line up of heavy-duty gaming laptop bags emblazoned with the looks and feel of ROG hardware. These bags are the perfect companion for your ROG Machines and for your gaming lifestyle. Made with padded, high-quality water resistant nylon that helps keep you gear safe and dry. Definitely a bag designed for durability, security and for gamers who are constantly on-the- go.
I currently use the ROG Shuttle II which ASUS Philippines gave away back in 2016. It’s a very reliable gaming laptop bag especially now that I’m using a ROG Strix GL502VS. It can fit 17″ gaming laptops as well.
While the ROG Shuttle II meets my needs, I wanted to get another ROG bag that is less bulky. Also, I want to be a little different since other tech bloggers are also using the Shuttle II. The ROG Ranger Messenger caught my eye last December and thought of ordering it from Amazon. Thing is, shipping fees and taxes will certainly balloon the total amount of what I’m going to pay.
The good news is, the ROG Lifestyle Collection is more affordable than in other countries. Here are the prices of the bags and apparels:
- ROG Shirts – P1,495 each
- ROG Ranger Messenger Bag – P3,995
- ROG Backpack Shuttle II – P4,995
- ROG X Ranger Backpack – P5,995
- ROG Ranger Suitcase – P9,995
Upon seeing the price of the ROG Ranger Messenger Bag, I immediately called my favorite ROG store in Megamall. I was supposed to buy it last month but unfortunately I had an accident. Thankfully, they still have stocks and I just got one for myself a while ago! Yay!!!
The ROG Lifestyle Collection is now available nationwide through all ROG concept stores.
