ST. LOUIS (February 16, 2006) – When it comes to your family camping excursions, do you feel like you need a Hummer® H2 to transport all the gear? If so, you’re not alone. Today, most campsites look more like state-of-the-art living rooms than the quaint, simple sites we remember from childhood. If you demand all the creature comforts of home when you go camping, but don’t have the space to haul all the gear, one company has come up with the perfect solution.

Slumberjack is introducing a complete new line of compact, lightweight sleeping bags under the Family on the Goâ„¢ series. These high-performance bags weigh less than 3.5 pounds and compress down to a compact size that is easy to handle, transport and store.

“Campers don’t want big, bulky sleeping bags that take up a lot of space and are difficult to haul,” said Brent Klages, director of operations at Slumberjack. “They want something that’s lightweight, compact and easy to transport without sacrificing performance and durability. We’ve come up with the perfect bag.”

Telluride is the first sleeping bag to launch under the Family on the Go series. The bag is available with a 30oF or 40oF comfort rating and comes in three different sizes:
Junior (26” x 66”), Regular (32” x 80”) and Long (34” x 84”).

The exterior of the bag is constructed from a durable, anti-snag nylon material, which is soft and silky to the touch. As you work your way inside the bag, you find a plush poly-cotton liner, which offers a “bed-like” feel. The sleeping bag is filled with Thermolite® EXTRA insulation for maximum warmth, comfort and compression. When not in use, the bag compresses down to a carry size of 6” x 15” (Junior), 7” x 18” (Regular) and 7” x 19” (Long).

Other features include an interlocking system, which allows users to zip two bags together for added room and comfort. Telluride also features indexed drawcords for quick, in-and-out access and a compression stuff sack for easy transportation and storage.

Telluride is a unique, retro-style looking sleeping bag available in one of two color schemes: blue, silver and orange, or blue, silver and red. The sleeping bags retail between $29.95 and $59.95 and can be found at sporting goods retailers and specialty stores across the country.

“In addition to camping, Family on the Go sleeping bags like Telluride are great for sleepovers, college dorm rooms and other family needs,” Klages added.
