Clitheroe, UKPertex®, designer and manufacturer of high-performance fabrics, was selected to provide a range of fabrics for Marmot’s premium sleeping bags. Marmot’s 2012 Plasma Series and Gas Bag Series sleeping bags will all be made with Pertex® Quantum and Pertex® Microlight fabrics.

The Marmot Plasma sleeping bags are some of the most technologically advanced bags on the market. Developed with Pertex® Quantum, offering the best strength to weight ratio of fine denier fabric available, the Plasma Series bags have received product awards from Backpacker, Outside and National Geographic Adventure magazines. The use of Pertex® Quantum fabric in the sleeping bag increases packability by fifty percent and reduces the weight (compared to standard sleeping bag fabric) by nearly half.

“Marmot came to us in pursuit of a fabric that would help create the warmest, lightest, most functional bag possible, and the Pertex® Quantum fabric was the perfect fit,” said Steve Laycock, brand manager, Pertex. “We’re so delighted to see the great success the Plasma bags have had and hope to see it continue with the new sleeping bags this season.”

Now, for spring 2012, Marmot introduces the new Marmot Plasma 40 sleeping bag as an addition to the award winning 15 and 30-degree bags in the series. The new 40-degree bag features:

·Certified 900+ fill power goose down,

·Isotect flow vertical baffle system reduces weight and transfers heat from the core of your body to your extremities.

·Designed to increase thermal value without adding weight.

·1lb 2.7 oz

SRP $399

Along with the addition of the new Plasma 40 bag this year, all of Marmot’s award winning Gas Bag Series made with 850 fill goose down will now feature Pertex® Microlight fabric. The Gas Series sleeping bags are developed to be extremely lightweight and packable, ideal for long backpacking trips where weight and space are at a premium.

Pertex provides fabrics to an array of top outdoor industry manufacturers in the U.S. and Europe for creation of high-end apparel and sleeping bags. Pertex’s unmatched quality and range of fabric offerings is what piqued Marmot’s interest. Marmot is renowned for being a truly authentic brand, through continuous innovation melding functionality with cutting edge materials, world-class quality and smart end-use-specific design.
