BOULDER, CO– Sea to Summit, manufacturer of adventure travel equipment and lightweight backpacking gear, debuts the new Aeros pillow collection for spring 2014. Proof that big comfort can be found in small packages, the pillows pack down to the size of an apple (and smaller), but the construction and technology featured in these pillows make for an incredibly comfortable night’s sleep.
The three Aeros pillow models feature a patent-pending valve unlike anything currently on the market. The one-way inflation valve and dump valve are integrated into one low profile unit. This two-in-one valve saves space and weight, which contributes to a super compact packed size and light weight. And, it’s super efficient as well – the pillows inflate with only a few breaths.
Unlike many of the travel pillows currently on the market that use Mylar bladders and other crinkly-sounding materials, the Aeros collection is made from a very supple TPU, making for a quieter experience, a feature sure to be appreciated by those who shift around during the night. And, the outer fabrics have a luxurious, touchable feel with minimal weight and bulk.
The design goal of the Aeros pillows was to have a very tiny packed-down size but a generous size pillow when inflated, without giving up any comfort. These pillows hit the mark on all counts. The Large size Aeros Premium inflates to a 16-1/2” width pillow and packs down to the size of an apple and the Traveller neck style with extra large rounded ends for head support packs down to the size of a kiwi. Their ergonomic shapes brilliantly cradle head and shoulders.
Premium Pillow (available March 2014; MSRP: $39.95 for the Regular & $44.95 for the Large)
Perfect for travel and camping where you can risk a couple more grams for a great night’s sleep. A layer of synthetic fill between the brushed polyester knit ‘pillow case’ and the high strength TPU bladder gives super cushy support and wicks away perspiration. Weights: Regular 2.8 oz.; Large 3.7 oz.
Ultralight Pillow (available March 2014; MSRP: $34.95 for the Regular & $39.95 for the Large)
The Aeros Ultralight pillow has been refined from three ideas: light, compact, and comfortable. Weighing just 2 oz. for the Regular and 2.5 oz. for the Large with the same inflated dimensions as the Premium, this 20-denier pillow with shapely support packs away into a neat, small stuff sack. From the airplane to the mountains the Aeros Ultralight is the perfect travel companion for those on the move.
Traveller Pillow (available March 2014; MSRP: $34.95)
Avoid long, uncomfortable travel and arrive at your destination well rested with this ultra-lightweight neck pillow. A classic product redesigned with 20D laminated polyester and ergonomic curves. Weighing in at 2 ounces and packing into a tiny stuff sack this pillow is a hassle-free, highly effective addition to your daypack or carry-on.
In addition to the Aeros pillow collection, Sea to Summit is also debuting 15 equally exciting and innovative products at this summer’s Outdoor Retailer show (booth # 16001).
