New sleeping bag line designed specifically with the backcounty hunter in mind
DIXON, CALIFORNIA (February 6, 2014) – KUIU has developed the most technically advanced water-resistant down sleeping bags yet to hit the market. Each bag in the Super Down Sleeping Bag line has been certified by the International Down and Feather Testing Laboratory (IDFL) for a Fill Power of 865, 95/5 down-to-feather ratio, and an EN Lower Limit Rating of 0º, 15º, or 30º. The Super Down Sleeping Bag raise the bar for sleeping bags across the globe with superior ingredients by Toray, who set the standard in the textile industry for superior technology developments, and a design conceived specifically with the hunter in mind.
Each bag is filled with Quixdown™ by Toray originating from geese in the finest down producing region of the world, Eastern Europe. The largest high quality down clusters are separated, and feather content minimized, to produce an 850+ ¬fill power with a 95/5 down-to-feather ratio. Through nanotechnology, each individual plum of the down cluster is treated to repel water with the most durable, longest lasting water repellant treatment on the market. Through the use of Quixdown™, the Super Down Sleeping Bag will retain warmth and loft, even when wet from rain, sweat, and condensation.
The down is encased in down proof Stunner Stretch™ by Toray, a stretchable micro-ripstop 12 Denier textured nylon that provides a luxurious feel against the skin. Each individual thread of Stunner Stretch™ is treated with Toray’s industry leading Kudos® Durable Water Repellent, keeping you dry and extending the life of your bag. The noteworthy vertical baffle design of the Super Down Sleeping Bag utilizes flow gates to keep the down from shifting, eliminating cold spots, and maximizing loft.
The Super Down Sleeping Bag will be available in 0º, 15º and 30º temperature ratings and will be offered in regular and long sizes. Regular sized bags will fit persons with a height of up to 6’0” and the long sized bag up to 6’6”. The bags are available for preorder now and shipping is expected to being in mid-April.
