BOULDER, COLO. (April 12, 2011) – The Sierra Designs Pyro 15 sleeping bag, the first sleeping bag to employ Sierra Designs’ Core Comfort Technology™ (CCT), has been selected by the editors of Camping Life Magazine as a 2011 Editors’ Choice Award winner.

The down-insulated Pyro 15’s performance is based on two additional sets of insulated baffles placed over the foot box and torso, where the body generates most of its heat. The result is improved warmth retention with less insulation than similarly rated bags, allowing campers to stay warmer and more comfortable while carrying less weight.

“This recognition from Camping Life is fantastic, especially since Camping Life is a well respected source of information for campers everywhere,” said Becky Larsen, product developer for Sierra Designs sleeping bags. “Inspired by our line of CCT apparel introduced in Fall 2010, we’re particularly proud of the Pyro since it represents the next step in the evolution of this technology. Look for more Sierra Designs Core Comfort sleeping bags in Spring 2012.”

Here’s what Camping Life had to say about the Pyro 15:

“Sierra Design’s new Pyro sleeping bag features a trend in sleeping bag design that we appreciated for its efficient use of insulation. The company calls it Core Comfort body mapping, but we’ll call it putting warmth where you need it the most. The Pyro offers extra 600-fill down directly over your torso to maximize heat retention in this critical area. Other top-notch sleeping bag features such as a draft tube and draft collar for keeping cold air out and warm air in, an ergonomic foot box and hood for greater comfort, and a pillow pocket for convenience make this a darn good 15-degree sleeping bag for the price. With such a wide variety of camping products available to today’s family camper, Camping Life strives to provide detailed, valuable information so their readers can make informed buying decisions.”

Camping Life Magazine was started in 1998 and began the Editors' Choice Awards in 2002 as a way to help focus their readership's (family campers) purchasing power and attention on products that were best suited for the family camping lifestyle.

More about the Pyro 15:

Utilizing Sierra Designs’ Core Comfort Technology body mapping to place insulation where it’s needed most, the Pyro 15 is a comfortable and thermally efficient sleeping bag designed for cool weather overnights in the backcountry. With it’s advanced double-baffle system, the Pyro adds extra 600-fill down insulation directly over the torso to maximize heat retention in this most crucial area. Weighing in at 2 lbs, 13 oz in regular, the Pyro features an ergonomic foot box and hood for comfort, a pillow pocket for convenience, and a zipper draft tube and draft collar for keeping cold air out. $249.
