GoLite® Adrenaline 20° Wins
Prestigious Gear of the Year Award from Outside Magazine

Boulder, Colorado, April 7, 2009 -- GoLite, the world's premier producer of lightweight equipment and apparel for active outdoor adventures, announced today that its Adrenaline 20° sleeping bag is the winner of Outside magazine's prestigious 2009 Gear of the Year award for the sleeping bag category.

“Everything you look for in a high-quality down sleeping bag is here,” said Buyer's Guide Editor Sam Moulton. “It was one of the lightest, most compressible bags we tested this year. Both ends are capped with waterproof/breathable material—so you don't have to worry if your bag brushes up against a wet tent wall. But it's the Adrenaline's centrally placed zipper than won over testers. Because rolling over onto a cold zipper in the middle of the night was no longer possible, our testers praised the Adrenaline as one of the comfiest bags they've ever slept in.”

GoLite's premium 800-fill goose down bags have a technical mummy shape and trapezoidal foot box for added warmth. The bags feature waterproof-breathable AridZonesâ„¢ on the head and foot sections to keep consumers dry from tent wall condensation. The Adrenaline Series bags are lighter than comparable warmth bags thanks to a half-length top zip and trimmer mummy shape, and its close-fitting SkullGloveâ„¢ hood ensures maximum warmth. The Adrenaline is available for both men and women and is offered in 40 degree, 20 degree and 0 degree options.

Outside's Gear of the Year award is the second major accolade for the Adrenaline Series. Backpacker magazine awarded the Adrenaline Series the Editors' Choice award in 2008. This is the seventh year that Outside has recognized exceptional products through their Gear of the Year award selections.
