VANCOUVER BC May 11, 2011 - Insotect is honored to announce that its Insotect Flow™ insulation system and design know-how has again been recognized by a prestigious national outdoor publication by powering the Marmot Plasma 30° sleeping bag to a 2011 National Geographic Magazine Gear of the Year award.

Insotect's contribution to the Marmot Plasma 30° sleeping bag includes the Insotect Flow insulation system as well as co-development of the overall bag itself. By providing leadership in innovation and practical design application, Insotect is able to offer complete award winning solutions to its distributor brands.

This award marks the third major award for the Plasma bag in the same year by a recognized national publication, the first two being a Backpackers Editors' Choice award in March and an Outside Magazine Gear of the Year award in April.

As an integral component in the Marmot Plasma bag, Insotect Flow is an evolution in sleeping bag construction; combining the presence of vertical thermal channels (VTCs) with Insotect's proprietary FlowGatesâ„¢. 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. Another significant benefit with Insotect Flow's vertical orientation is the need for fewer total baffles. Fewer baffles mean less material and less material translates directly into lighter gear.

Insotect Flow is once again recognized as setting a new standard in sleeping bag performance and comfort.

“This recognition by National Geographic is further testament to our innovation, design know-how and contribution to the winning of another prestigious and well recognized award by one of our partnered distributor brands.” – Irvin Vale Akopov, Insotect Brand Manager.
