BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (August 2010) – Eureka!, maker of high-quality, innovative sleep systems, tents, furniture and lighting for a wide range of campers, introduces new technology for bags and sleep pads, providing outdoor enthusiasts with the exact combination of products for the most comfortable night's sleep outdoors. Eureka!'s new Dualis sleeping pads combine the convenience of a self-inflating mattress with the comfort of a air tube mattress. Its new DualTemp sleeping bags offer different amounts of loft on the top and bottom of the bag for versatility in changing outdoor conditions.

“Our patent-pending Dualis Technology used in our new sleeping pads creates a multi-chamber sleeping pad combining the cushioning and thermal resistance of a self-inflating pad with the comfort, support and compactness of an air tube mattress,” said Mark Hrubant, brand director for Eureka! tents. “It provides outdoor enthusiasts with a truly comfortable air mattress option for a good night's sleep under the stars.”

Eureka! introduces two new collections of sleeping pads in 2011. The Singlis ST, an air tube pad with integrated pump, and the Dualis ST a sleep pad.

Each sleep pad has thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) laminated soft-touch anti-slip fabric on the air tube chamber and durable anti-slip 150D polyester oxford ripstop with TPU lamination as the ground fabric, offering durability and slip-resistance.
