Insotect Ltd. is pleased to announce that the company’s Insotect Flow insulation system has been officially adopted by Rab and will be available as part of Rab’s 2012 sleeping bag line.
The adoption of Insotect Flow by Rab reflects Insotect’s growing presence as a major ingredient brand in outdoor gear beyond North America. Insotect Flow has quickly caught on as a new standard in sleeping bag performance and continues to spread its reach into new markets.
Insotect Flow is an evolution in sleeping bag construction; combining the presence of vertical thermal channels (VTCs) with Insotect’s proprietary FlowGates™. By utilizing vertical channels instead of horizontal ones, the number of total channels is decreased and thus overall material weight is reduced. The vertical orientation helps facilitate heat distribution more readily from head to toe which is an advantage over traditional side to side horizontal channels. The FlowGates are placed along the vertical thermal channels to hold the down insulation in place, minimizing down-shifting.
“It’s great to see Insotect Flow’s virtues continue to be championed by quality and distinguished brands such as Rab. This is an exciting opportunity for both companies to bring leading sleeping bag innovation to the outdoor gear market outside of North America. ” – Irvin Vale Akopov, Insotect Brand Manager.
