The Mountain Hardwear HyperLamina Sleeping Bag Series Wins Industry Awards
The high-performing synthetic HyperLamina is recognized by GearJunkie.com and GearInstitute.com
Richmond, Calif. (Aug. 20, 2014) – Mountain Hardwear, creator of performance apparel and equipment that empowers outdoor athletes to live boldly, is proud to announce the overwhelming success of the HyperLamina sleeping bag at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. New for Spring 2015, the HyperLamina series received accolades from GearJunkie.com and the GearInstitute.com.
The HyperLamina Spark (MSRP $220) is engineered to be the lightest and warmest synthetic sleeping bag on the market, with zoned Thermal.Q™ insulation that maximizes warmth where it’s needed most. A half-length center zip with dual sliders minimizes weight and still allows for ventilation while Mountain Hardwear’s proprietary welded Lamina™ construction enhances loft and eliminates cold spots.
Awarding the HyperLamina series a Best New Gear award, the GearInstitute.com said, “Mountain Hardwear is touting the new HyperLamina as the ‘lightest and warmest synthetic sleeping bag on the market.’ That’s a bold claim, but at 1-lb, 10-oz for a 30- to 40-degree EN rated bag, they’re on pretty good footing. It’s not down, but the bag will stuff into to a nicely compressible 5-liters. We feel pretty safe in predicting wet weather ultralighters are going to go nuts for this bag.”
The GearJunkie.com presented Mountain Hardwear a Best in Show award for the HyperLamina series, saying “We have extensively tested Mountain Hardwear’s Lamina sleeping bag line over the years (and we’re huge fans). The to-be-released HyperLamina Spark, a 35-degree bag, is an upgrade in the line that’s touted to be the ‘highest performance synthetic bag on the market.’”
