Insotect is honored to acknowledge that its Insotect Flowâ„¢ insulation system and design know-how has powered the Marmot Plasma Bag to a 2011 Backpacker Editors Choice Award.
Insotect’s contribution to the Plasma Bag includes the use of Insotect Flow as well as co-development of the overall bag itself. By providing leadership in innovation and practical design application, Insotect is able to offer complete award winning solutions to it’s distributor brands.
As an integral component in the Marmot Plasma bag, Insotect Flow is an evolution in sleeping bag construction; combining the presence of vertical thermal channels (VTCs) with Insotect’s proprietary FlowGatesâ„¢. By utilizing vertical channels instead of horizontal ones, the number of total channels is decreased and thus overall material weight is reduced. The vertical orientation helps facilitate heat distribution more readily from head to toe which is an advantage over traditional side to side horizontal channels. The FlowGates are placed along the vertical thermal channels to hold the down insulation in place, minimizing down-shifting.
Insotect Flow sets a new standard in sleeping bag performance and comfort.
We are pleased to see our innovation and design know-how contribute to the winning of such a coveted award by one of our partnered distributor brands.â€ â€“ Irvin Vale Akopov, Insotect Brand Manager.
