SEATTLE, Wash. (June 26, 2018) – Therm-a-Rest has set the standard in innovation and design in outdoor sleep systems for more than 45 years. The legacy continues into spring 2019 as the brand unveils its new Fast & Light collection. The collection is highlighted by the 8.8-ounce NeoAir® UberLite™ mattress (size regular) and the 15-ounce Vesper™ 32F/0C quilt (size regular), combining for Therm-a-Rest’s lightest sleep system ever. Now you can lighten your load without sacrificing comfort, reliability, and durability – qualities synonymous with the Therm-a-Rest brand.
“This collection has been years in the making,” said Greg Dean, Therm-a-Rest Director of Product. “Thanks to our standout design team and the culmination of decades of manufacturing knowledge and material expertise, we’ve really been able to push the boundaries with this line and could not be more excited with the results.”
The NeoAir UberLite is now the lightest insulated mattress on the market, weighing only 8.8 ounces. Designed with Therm-a-Rest’s trusted Triangular Core Matrix™ technology, the mattress provides a stable sleep surface while minimizing heat loss. It offers supreme comfort in the ultralight category with 2.5 inches of cushion and packs down small enough to fit in a pocket.
In the quilt category, the Vesper 32F/0C is the lightest of the collection, offering comfort and unrivaled packability. If you’re venturing into colder conditions, the Vesper™ 20F/-6C is ideal for warmer nights at camp for those that carry nothing but the essentials.
Designed to keep you moving quickly and sleeping comfortably, the new Fast & Light sleeping bags allow for an ultralight pack and good night’s sleep. One of the lightest pieces in the ultralight class at one pound (size regular) is the Hyperion™ 32F/0C. Its warmer counterpart, the Hyperion™ 20F/-6C, offers zoned insulation, maximizing warmth and saving weight where you need it most. Designed with roomier construction and a semi-rectangular shape, the Ohm™ 32F/0C is a versatile option allowing you to zip open the bag in milder weather, or zip two together for a double sleeping bag.
Each of the quilts and sleeping bags feature Responsible Down Standard (RDS) certified Nikwax Hydrophobic Down™ that stays drier and retains loft up to 60-times longer than untreated down, as well as Therm-a-Rest’s trusted ThermaCapture™ lining, SynergyLink™ Connectors, and box-baffled construction.
The new collection also includes the ProLite™ Apex™ mattress, which boast the best warmth-to-weight ratio in the self-inflating category and weighs 1-pound 6-ounces. In the blanket category, Therm-a-Rest introduces the queen-sized Ramble™ Down Blanket, ideal for van life and glamping. The ultra-soft and roomy Argo™ Blanket (78×72 inches) will now be offered in two new prints, and the Stellar™ Blanket (75×56 inches), will be offered in a new color and print as well.
Therm-a-Rest will be showcasing the new line at the upcoming Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, July 23-26, in Denver, Colo. Booth #44031.
