Therm-a-Rest, the Seattle-based leader in premium outdoor comfort, announced today that it will use fluorocarbon-free Nikwax Hydrophobic Down (NHD) in its 2015 down sleeping bag collection.

Third-party lab reports indicate that products made with NHD absorb substantially less water, retain more loft, dry faster, and withstand repeat washing better than any other fluorocarbon-free treatment on the market. The European goose down is sourced from U.S.-based DOWNLITE that adheres to an ethical supply chain practice and a bluesign®-certified manufacturing process.

New for Spring/Summer 2015, Therm-a-Rest introduces the Antares HD™ unisex sleeping bag and Mira HD™ women’s-specific down sleeping bag with the new hydrophobic down.

The 750+ fill-power goose down sleeping bags feature a cutting-edge combination of technology, design, and materials that prioritize the body’s natural resting position and warmth equally. Weighing just 890 g (1 lb 15 oz) and 820 g (1 lb 12 oz) respectively, the Antares HD and Mira HD are the lightest three-season solutions in Therm-a-Rest’s 2015 collection. Both bags allow shoulders, elbows, and hips to move without restriction.

With an EN Limit rating of –9 degrees Celsius (15 degrees Fahrenheit), both bags are designed to work seamlessly with a mattress for greater warmth and freedom of movement, resulting in a dramatically better sleeping experience. Therm-a-Rest’s ThermaCapture™lining reflects heat back into the bag while extra fill on bag’s bottom adds warmth while reducing drafts.

The Antares HD and Mira HD will be shown at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in August 2014 and will be available in retail stores in January 2015.
