Kammok Sleeping Bag Wins Outside Magazine’s Gear of the Year Award


Austin, TX. (May 10, 2017) — Kammok, designers of high-performance outdoor gear for elevated camping, is thrilled to announce the company’s Thylacine Sleeping Bag has won Gear of the Year from Outside Magazine. Outperforming every other sleeping bag in its category, the Thylacine delivered as one of the most technically advanced sleep systems on the market, offering complete versatility and adaptability as needs and environment change.

Outside Gear of the Year award

The Thylacine won over Outside’s editorial team with its fully customizable capabilities, functional design, lightweight fabric and durable hardware. Featuring Variable Warmth Technology™, the warmth of the bag can be adjusted through a system of insulated liners to adapt to a variety of distinct environments. Additionally, the Thylacine can be tailored directly to the body with CustomFit™ adjustments. Simple cinch straps keep the bag snug, eliminating cold spots and maximize warmth in the backcountry.“I can’t think of a more versatile sleeping bag system than the Thylacine,” said Ryan Stuart, Contributor for Outside. “For people like me who camp in a range of temperatures, situations and seasons, this bag makes life simple, easy and less expensive. The ability to customize the warmth of the bag by adding and taking away liners is not only innovative, it’s highly functional.”
