Get ready for a new era.
GYST is the creator of the X-Changer Pack system (XCP system) the leading transition bag system that
simplifies the process of changing clothes before-and-after exercising. Super-practical and
constructed of eco-friendly materials, our innovative packs have been designed and tested by athletes
in real world conditions. Our brand promotes and advocates a straightforward proposition: be active to feel better and to be energized.
Invented and developed by co-founder and design director Dominique Aris of Portland-based
be-unique.us (a sports equipment and design studio), GYST bags were praised as soon
as they were introduced to the U.S. market. The collection, including surf, boarding and diaper bags, came from Aris’ own experience as an 800m runner, tri-athlete, surfer, windsurfer, snowboarder and
Our focus is the athlete: because you exercise to live better, we respect that and strive to help you
get the GYST—by “getting your self (or stuff) together,” and embracing the true essential
spirit of sport and an active life. GYST originated on 01-01-10 and encourages a new vision for
athletes: you exercise to get yourself together.
GYST does not accept the mainstream attitude of “victory at any cost” and the tarnished
values of professional sports. Unlike major brands, we promote competition by the rules and “
organically grown athletes”, without drugs or steroid enhancements. Athleticism over
winning. Sportsmanship over the sports machine. Let’s face it, “the Olympic Games are broken
” and have lost their core values; major championships and races are far from their origins
and have become empty, commercial enterprises.
- Organically-grown athletes and competitions and athletes that are clean.
- Teaching our kids to practice and play by the rules.
- Making innovative products that are PVC-free and eco-friendly.
