WENATCHEE, WA - COCOON by Design Salt, an innovator in lightweight sleep systems and travel accessories, announced today that they are teaming up with Outlast Technologies to produce the COCOON ThermaLiner MummyLinerâ„¢. The ThermaLiner MummyLiner incorporates Outlast technology to create a revolutionary sleeping bag liner with unmatched temperature regulation.

Originally developed for NASA, Outlast fibers, fabrics and coatings contain patented microencapsulated phase-change materials called Thermocules™ that respond to changes in your body temperature and to your sleeping environment. Unlike traditional fabric and insulation that trap heat, products with patented Outlast Thermocules actually absorb your excess body heat when you become too warm, and release it back when you need it. The result: reduced overheating, sweating and chilling so you are Not Too Hot, Not Too Cold® but just right.

“It's a perfect marriage of Outlast technology and a signature COCOON product,” said Sue Morrison, General Manager, Design Salt USA. “The temperature regulating benefits make a difference in your comfort level and for your overall enjoyment in the outdoors. The ThermaLiner comes in men's and women's sizes and will be especially appealing for women who typically sleep colder than men. We're excited to be able to offer this to our customers.”

The new COCOON ThermaLiner MummyLiner with Outlast technology will debut at the 2007 Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. It is made from an exceptionally soft, breathable mid-weight CoolMax® fabric with wicking capabilities and comes in assorted colors. Weighing just 13.5 ounces for men's and 8.0 ounces for women's, the ThermaLiner MummyLiner will provide an additional 12 degrees of warmth to any sleeping bag.

“This liner is an exciting first for us and we're glad to have COCOON as a partner,” stated Greg Roda, President and CEO of Outlast Technologies.

Started in 1989, COCOON TravelSheetsâ„¢, MummyLinersâ„¢ and sleeping bags are the result of life-long travel experience. COCOON products are available in high quality fabrics with a wide variety of functional details that make them ideal companions for adventurers, travelers and mountaineers worldwide. Today COCOON is sold in many countries all over the world. Nevertheless the company is still led by a small, highly motivated team. Based in Austria, Design Salt Europe is in charge of developing new products, organizing and supervising the production and marketing in Europe and on international markets. Design Salt USA, located in Washington State, is responsible for sales and marketing in North America. Phone: 800.254.7258, Website:
