Therm-a-Rest’s Sleeping Bag Category Gets Upgraded for 2018, Offering Options for Every Adventure

SEATTLE, WA (July 17, 2017) — For over 45 years, Therm-a-Rest has been committed to creating a better way to camp – from technical camping mattresses to sleeping bags, cots, hammocks, tents and more. The Seattle-based business is offering a new line of Fast & Light sleeping bags in 2018. Built with premium materials and Responsible Down Standard fill, the new bags will allow explorers to rest better while pushing deeper into the backcountry.

For mountaineers and winter explorers expecting frigid temperatures, Therm-a-Rest designed the new Oberon™ 0F/-18C with 800-fill Nikwax hydrophobic down bag to keep you warm and secure at camp. The design team drew on their experiences sleeping outside to maximize the efficiency of the bag with features like Zoned Insulation, ThermaCapture lining and SynergyLink™ connectors.

For alpinists and backpackers, the Parsec™ 20F/-6C keeps your pack light while providing a better night’s sleep. With a limit range of 20°F, the 800-fill Nikwax hydrophobic down bag packs small and is one of the lightest in its category. Oversized draft tubes and a ThermaCapture lining ensure that you stay warm and comfortable while resting for tomorrow’s adventure.

For the growing thru-hiker community, Therm-a-Rest introduces the Space Cowboy™ 45F/7C – a highly packable synthetic fill bag designed for thru hikers and cowboy campers. Our hollow-fiber eraLoft™ insulation make it one of the lightest in its category and perfect for dealing with moisture.

“The growth of our sleeping bag, quilt and blanket category has been really fun to watch,” said Jim Giblin, Therm-a-Rest’s tent and sleeping bag category director. “We wanted to expand our sleeping bag line to offer the right products to customize your sleep system for any condition, any time of year.”

Further additions to the sleeping bag category include a lightweight, ultra-cozy sleep liner made in a range of sizes to add an extra layer of insulation inside a bag, under a blanket or on top of mattresses while traveling. Build your own sleep system out of the newest products at the OutDOOR Trade Show in Friedrichshafen this June and the Summer Outdoor Retailer Trade Show this July.
