Seattle, U.S.A. - Cascade Designs, Inc., the Seattle-based industry leader in the design and manufacture of premier outdoor equipment, is proud to announce the company's Therm-a-Rest Alpine Down Blanket has been honored with an Editor's Choice award from the UK magazine Outdoor Enthusiast. The sleep system was recognized for its comfort, versatility, and ability to provide a good night's sleep in the outdoors.

Outdoor Enthusiast Editor Alf Anderson tested numerous sleeping bags for two- and three-season use, ultimately selecting the Therm-a-Rest Alpine Down Blanket as his top choice and “an excellent option if a good night's sleep is a priority on your camping trips.” Anderson found it “a generally more comfy kip than a traditional bag” and appreciated its versatility, noting, “I even leave mine in the car to use as a wrap after a cold winter surf session.”

At only 624 grams (1 pound, 5 ounces) the Therm-a-Rest Alpine Down Blanket is ideal for fast and light three-season excursions in the backcountry. Emulating the comfort of a bed at home, the zipper-less Alpine Down Blanket surrounds the top of a Therm-a-Rest camping mattress, offering the freedom to move that traditional sleeping bags don't. Perimeter snaps provide multiple Therm-a-Rest mattress integration options and the box-baffled 700-fill goose down design provides luxurious comfort and compresses down small for packing.

The sleeping bag review is in the March issue of Outdoor Enthusiast, and the Therm-a-Rest Alpine Down Blanket is available in stores now.
