Big Agnes Shoestring SL 22 Wins Best Sleeping Bag 2013 in Outside Magazine Online’s Summer 2013 Buyer’s Guide
HONG KONG, 20 May 2013 – Big Agnes’s Shoestring SL 22 wins Best Sleeping Bag 2013 in Outside Online’s Summer 2013 Buyer’s guide.
The Outside Magazine appraised the Big Agnes’ Shoestring SL 22 win for the sleeping bag’s performance and accredits the new synthetic insulation used, with the claims that it “repels rain and condensation and pulls sweat vapor away from your body to keep the bag drier and you warmer,” (Stuart, 2013).
In the previous month, the Big Agnes’ Shoestring SL 22 was also awarded Best Synthetic Sleeping Bag in The Backpacker Gear Guide 2013 for its proprietary technology and construction. The Shoestring SL 22 uses the Insotect Tubic™ system, which combines the presence of Vertical Thermal Channel™ (VTC) and DualVault™, alongside with the Pinneco Core® technology, into one complete insulation system. The Pinneco Core® is a synthetic insulation that features a breathable membrane and fiber layers fused together permanently by a CoreFusion™ process which effectively magnifies thermal and moisture control ability. It is also in Pinneco Core®’s ability to anchor this tubular construction, that the Insotect Tubic™ System and the Pinneco Core® technology greatly maximizes the Shoestring SL 22’s performance.
