Big Agnes® Inc., maker of innovative sleeping bags, pads and tents, announced that Boa Technology Inc.'s precision lacing systems will be featured in two new Big Agnes tent styles slated for introduction at this week's Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City, Utah.

“We are very excited to work with another Steamboat Springs based business. Partnering with Boa Technology has enabled us to launch something entirely unique to tent manufacturing. By incorporating their Boa Lacing System, we've introduced a completely new function to some of our 2009 tents. Our collaboration marks the first time that the Boa closure component has been used in this type of application, allowing us to push the boundaries of tent design” says Bill Gamber, founder of Big Agnes.

Big Agnes is debuting the new Slide Mountain Superlight Tent Series: a three-season, freestanding, super light backpacking tent line. The series will include 2/3 person versions and incorporate the Boa Lacing System in each. The signature Big Agnes Sidewinder fly tensioning system will include two Boa lacing reels that control the tension of the tent fly through the Boa Lace Reel. The lace cable ends are fixed to a spool within the miniature Boa Reel. When the knob is rotated, the lace is wound on to the spool as the tent fly tightens. The gear train in the reel develops significant mechanical advantage so a great deal of tensioning force is created with very little effort. The Slide Mountain SL 2 tent weighs 4lbs 12oz and will retail for $499.95, with the Slide Mountain SL 3 tent weighing 5lbs 6oz and retailing for $599.95.

To see the new Big Agnes tents featuring Boa Technology during the Outdoor Retailer Summer market, visit the Big Agnes booth (#6043).
