Ignik, a Seattle-based brand committed to improving the sustainability of outdoor heating products, proudly introduces a new line designed to elevate cold weather activities to a new level of comfort. Featuring their patent-pending Radiant Carbon Strand (RCS) active heating elements, the new Heated Sleep System line offers safe, adjustable, rechargeable warmth when you need it most.

Launching Fall 2020, the Heated Sleep System line will include six initial products that work with existing gear inside a tent, RV, and beyond to provide maximum cold weather comfort. Ignik’s RCS technology, which features highly conductive stranded carbon fiber woven into the fabric, provides sustainable active heat that works with any 5V or 12V power source. An integrated soft-touch silicon button lets the user control the duration and intensity of the heat, easily switching between High, Medium, and Low settings. With configurations to fit a variety of needs, these products are durable, waterproof, and machine washable, and the entire line is made from bluesign®-approved, 100% recycled polyester.

“RCS technology is going to change the game for recreating in cold weather, from winter campouts to mountaineering excursions to skiing or hunting basecamps,” says Peter Pontano, Ignik’s Director of Marketing and Product Development. “These ultra-thin filaments are sewn directly into the fabric to create heated gear that is waterproof, safe, and extremely efficient. In addition, we’re sourcing durable, eco-friendly recycled fabrics so users can feel good about what’s going into their gear.”
