Therm-a-Rest® Trail King™ SV Wins European OutDoor Industry Gold Award


Therm-a-Rest®, the Seattle-based business is pleased to announce that it has won a 2016 Gold OutDoor Industry Award for the Trail King™ SV—the fastest self-inflating mattress yet.

The Trail King SV was one of eight Gold Industry Award winners at the recent OutDoor Trade Show in Germany. The winners were selected by an international jury of outdoor experts from a pool of 343 entries in a two-stage judging process. The jury recognized the Trail King SV for its outstanding degree of innovation, functionality, design, price-performance, weight/pack size and added value.


The Trail King SV is the fusion of reliable comfort, physics and material technology, giving campers a luxurious and fast self-inflating backpacking mattress. Combining AirFrame™ construction, which alternates foam and air channels, with SpeedValve™ technology, the Trail King self-inflates at remarkable speeds, then deflates quickly, providing you more time to have fun.

The Trail King SV will be available January 2017. For more information on Therm-a-Rest SpeedValve™ technology visit
