Big Agnes® Inc., maker of innovative sleeping bags, pads and tents, has been awarded Men’s Journal “Best Gear of the Year” for the company’s Tumble Mountain 20° sleeping bag. Awarded products are selected by Men’s Journal editors with the end goal being to offer consumers insight on the most innovative new products for 2010.

“We are honored to receive the Men’s Journal award for the Tumble Mountain,” says Big Agnes co-founder, Bill Gamber. “Being recognized at the start of the new year for a product that just launched will not only help us gain exposure and recognition for the Tumble Mountain, but a host of other recycled products from Big Agnes’ Re-Routt Collection.”

The Tumble Mountain 20° sets a new standard for sleeping bags, featuring the patented Flow Construction by Big Agnes/Insotect revolutionizing down sleeping bag design. The patented Flow Construction eliminates lateral and vertical down shifting by using vertical chambers with internal Flow Gates to regulate fill positioning and density. Strategically placed Flow Gates inside the vertical chambers minimize vertical down shifting while vertical chambers themselves minimize lateral shifting. The continuous Flow chambers eliminate potential cold spots occurring with side seams and contour to the body for increased user comfort.

Additionally, the 2lb 13oz Tumble Mountain incorporates 725 down fill and both recycled fabrics and hardware. It features a 100% recycled rip-stop nylon shell and liner fabric. Drawstring cord and stuff sacks are also derived from recycled content. The Tumble Mountain 20° will be available at specialty retailers next month. The article detailing the “Best Gear of the Year” awards can be seen in the Men’s Journal December 09/January 10 issue currently on newsstands now.

Named for a peak in the nearby Mt. Zirkel Wilderness, Big Agnes®, Inc. is located in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, and produces award-winning sleeping bags, pads and tents. For more information, visit www.bigagnes.com or call 1-877-554-8975.
