January 14, 2019 – Boulder, CO – Sierra Designs is proud to announce the successful resolution of a challenge in German court to their intellectual property, regarding their innovative zipperless sleeping bag. The Backcountry Bed is confirmed as the true pioneer in zipperless sleeping bags in the European Market.
“We’re pleased with the confirmation that this award-winning product is truly the original, and excited to announce that the most comfortable sleeping bag on the market is one uniquely available from Sierra Designs,” says VP/GM George Bryant.
Designed to work more like a bed and less like a sleeping bag, the Backcountry Bed features a unique zipperless construction with access provided through a large opening in the top. An oversized, integrated comforter seals this opening, allowing you to sleep comfortably and intuitively on your back, side or stomach, a feat that is impossible to accomplish with a traditional mummy bag. The comforter can either be tucked in on cold nights or untucked when the weather is warmer. All of this means the Backcountry Bed is the most versatile and comfortable sleeping bag on the market today. The Backcountry Bed features PFC-free hydrophobic 700 fill DriDown™ insulation and materials and is offered in 20⁰ Reg/Long and Women’s-specific constructed options, and 35⁰ Reg/Long
