VANCOUVER BC February 21, 2013 – Insotect Ltd., a leader in insulated gear construction technology, is pleased to announce that its Insotect Flow™ insulation system has helped power the NEMO Nocturne sleeping bag to a 2013 Backpacker Editors’ Choice award.
Insotect’s contribution to the Nocturne sleeping bag includes the Insotect Flow insulation system; which combines the presence of vertical thermal channels (VTCs) with Insotect’s proprietary FlowGates™. Insotect Flow’s vertical thermal channels distribute heat more readily from head to toe compared to traditional side-to side horizontal baffles. Heat can now effectively travel the entire length of the channel alongside the body, bringing warmth throughout. Vertical baffle construction also allows the gear design to more closely reflect the contours of the user, taking on a more comfort forming shape which in turn keeps the insulated comfort closer to the body while also requiring fewer total baffles. Fewer baffles mean less material and less material translates directly into lighter gear.
“If you crave more space than a mummy provides, but don’t want the weight penalty of a rectangular bag, this is your ticket to dreamland,” said Kristin Hostetter, Gear Editor at Backpacker, when asked about the Nocturne sleeping bag.
“This recognition by Backpacker Magazine lends itself to the tangible virtues of Insotect Flow. Insotect is at the forefront of innovation for this category and we are proud to be able to offer our expertise to high value brands such as NEMO. Together we are able to provide the outdoor gear market with superior product and performance. ” – Irvin Vale Akopov, Insotect Brand Manager.
