Albany, NY – In a new initiative, PrimaLoft® – Insulation Technology™, the most respected name in insulation for outdoor gear, demos new technologies, answers questions, tests product and gets end-users involved from the East Coast to the West Coast to the North Pole.

Eileen Berner, PrimaLoft® Sales & Marketing Director, Russ Angrignon, PrimaLoft® Western US Territory Sales Manager, Rodney Lane, PrimaLoft® Eastern US Territory Sales Manager and the PrimaLoft® team mix it up day and night with consumers at events and get them to know that it's what's on the inside that counts.

“Most consumers who participate at these events have heard of PrimaLoft® but don't realize they are wearing it,” said Russ Angrignon. "We want that guy over there hanging from his ice axe to know that he can count on PrimaLoft® products to keep him warm, dry and comfortable so he can focus on his fun."

“We want to let consumers know that even with the current economic situation, the cheapest buying decision for gear isn't the best when it comes to maximizing time outside, enjoying that day of skiing or ice climbing - or just staying alive when trekking to the North Pole,” said Berner.

Major sponsorships PrimaLoft® Insulation is involved with this winter include The Ouray Ice Festival, The North Face Masters of Snowboarding, the Seventh Annual Adirondack Backcountry Ski Festival, The Red Rock Rendez Vous, the Mugs Stump Awards, the Peary Centennial North Pole Expedition, and Backpacker Get Out More Tour.
