January 18, 2013 (Steamboat Springs, Colo.) – Big Agnes® Inc., maker of innovative sleeping bags, pads and tents, is pleased to announce the expansion of its partnership with DAC, the manufacturer of Helinox brand trekking poles and lightweight camp furniture. In 2013, Big Agnes will offer retailers several new Helinox products and increased North American distribution.

“The decision to grow our relationship with Helinox illustrates our commitment to the brand and belief in their products,” says Big Agnes president and co-founder Bill Gamber. “Helinox poles and camp furniture are made with superior aluminum that makes for a high quality product we can proudly sell to our customers and confidently use in the backcountry.”

The Helinox Camp Table, new for 2013, will be added to the Big Agnes’ product offerings this year. The table, weighing just 1lb 5oz, includes foldable legs made from aluminum alloy specifically developed by DAC, to deliver an industry-leading strength-to-weight-ratio. The table easily folds up into a small carrying case for convenient travel.

Additionally, Big Agnes will increase distribution of the Chair One and the trekking pole line. The updated Chair One will be available in four different colors including red, blue, green, and MultiCam® camouflage. The trekking pole line features 11 models incorporating the following designs: Lever Lock System, Dual Button Lock System™, Tension Lock System™, Groove Lock System™ and DAC Screw Lock System™.

“We chose Big Agnes as the exclusive distributor of the Helinox brand in the Americas because of their dedication and experience selling innovative products into the marketplace,” says DAC founder, Jake Lah.

All Helinox products will be displayed at the Big Agnes booth (#21041) at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market in Salt Lake City, Utah on January 23-26, 2013.
