High Peak USA, provider of high quality camping, hiking and outdoor gear, announces the addition of the Latitude sleeping bag series. Introduced under High Peak’s AlpinizmoÂ® label, the Latitude sleeping bag is the ultimate in tech bags with a high performance liner that helps regulate body temperature, and is lightweight. The Latitude series will be available in three different temperature ratings and available in fall of 2012.
â€œWe feel this bag will be a great addition to our Alpinizmo label and a superior product for our active and adventurous consumer,â€ says James Suen, co-owner of High Peak USA. â€œThe Latitude series sleeping bag offers significantly advanced technical characteristics that provides the user with comfort, versatility of use and warmth. Everything you would want in a sleeping bag when braving the elements.â€
High Peak’s Latitude sleeping bags are available in three temperature ratings: 20Â°, 0Â° and -5Â°. The shell is constructed with Tactel rip stop nylon but the real technology lies on the Cozy Thermâ„¢ liner. This unique, lightweight, breathable fabric radiates body heat to help regulate body temperature by allowing excess moisture to wick away while retaining body heat. The bag is insulated with Cozy Loftâ„¢ Micro-Xâ„¢, a proprietary blend of solid and hollow fibers for added warmth and comfort. Other Latitude features include: a sewn-in draft tube and collar, hood with drawstring closure and barrel lock, two-way zipper, windshield, anti-Snag zipper band, and two bags can be zippered together. MSRP: $142.00 (20Â°), $155.00 (0Â°), and $158.00 (-5Â°)
