“In the history of our company, this marks the highest level of growth our business has ever seen in a six-month segment,” said Founder, Matt Brooks. “We are very excited to not only see growth in the numbers, but also an increased trust and enthusiasm around the brand from users who are looking for a safe and enjoyable mountain experience.”

Various factors contributed to the company’s growth. The increased number of retailers carrying Brooks-Range products is a big component for boasting sales. A late, yet prolonged winter season in certain key regions helped bump up purchases of Brooks-Range winter gear ranging from apparel, sleeping bags and snow tools. 

Specifically, the new Cloak sleeping bags, witnessed a high demand in orders. Brooks-Range introduced the Cloak sleeping bag series to the line in Spring 2013. The Cloak concept is designed for those who may not always sleep fully zipped up in their sleeping bags, but prefer a minimalistic yet comfortable sleeping system that is lightweight and protective. The Cloak sleeping bag series is offered in three different temp-ratings: 45, 30 and 15.

“With more innovative products soon to be released at the upcoming Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2013 and more retailers signing on, Brooks-Range looks forward to carrying out 2013 in a strong way,” said Brooks.
