Therm-a-Rest is honored to announce it has won an ISPO GOLD AWARD 2013 for its new Therm-a-Rest LuxuryLite® UltraLite Cot™ at the recent 2013 ISPO Trade Fair in Munich, Germany. The LuxuryLite UltraLite Cot was recognized for its revolutionary design, light weight, comfort and packability.
This is the second major industry award for the Therm-a-Rest LuxuryLite UltraLite Cot, which was also awarded an OutDoor Industry award when it debuted at the European OutDoor Trade Fair in July 2012.
The UltraLite Cot is so light and packable—2 lb. and 6 x 15 in., respectively—even backpackers can carry it into the backcountry. It fits easily into panniers, kayaks and other tight storage places. It features a laminated waterproof and stretch-free nylon cover, anodized aluminum poles, and durable nylon feet for heavy use.
The cot’s patented bow frame technology creates a stretch-free fabric bed that offers superior comfort, eliminating painful crossbars and squeaky joints found in other cots. It allows users to sleep 4.5 inches above ground, providing great comfort for anyone but especially for those sleeping on rocky, wet or uneven ground, or for those who experience back pain. The LuxuryLite UltraLite cot also makes a superior addition to any Therm-a-Rest sleep system for unrivaled comfort in the backcountry and on global adventures.
Therm-a-Rest’s award-winning LuxuryLite UltraLite Cot, along with a wider, mesh version called the LuxuryLite Mesh Cot, is currently available for purchase at retail stores.
