VANCOUVER BC July 5, 2013 – Insotect Ltd., a leader in insulated gear construction technology, is pleased to announce that its Insotect Flow™ insulation system has been adopted by Salewa as part of their Mygration sleeping bag line-up for 2013.
Insotect’s contribution to the Mygration sleeping bag series includes the Insotect Flow insulation system; which combines the presence of vertical thermal channels (VTCs) with Insotect’s proprietary FlowGates™. Insotect Flow’s vertical thermal channels distribute heat more readily from head to toe compared to traditional side-to side horizontal baffles. Heat can now effectively travel the entire length of the channel alongside the body, bringing warmth throughout. Vertical baffle construction also allows the gear design to more closely reflect the contours of the user, taking on a more comfort forming shape which in turn keeps the insulated comfort closer to the body while also requiring fewer total baffles. Fewer baffles mean less material and less material translates directly into lighter gear. The adoption of Insotect Flow by Salewa also marks the first major entry point for Insotect into the European market. Until recently Insotect has been focused on the broad adoption of its insulation systems within North America; where sell-through has been very strong.
“We are pleased and excited to name Salewa as our inaugural distributor for Europe. The widely successful adoption of Insotect Flow in the USA has piqued the interest of major European brands. Salewa has taken a bold step forward in a European market that tends to demonstrate a more measured approach in adopting new innovation. Both Insotect and Salewa are brands that covet leadership through product innovation and quality, making this is a perfect fit.” – Irvin Vale Akopov, Insotect Brand Manager.
