R&D highlights versatility, portability in sleeping bags

 

New models function as clothing, air beds or picnic mats, and use lighter fabrics.

 

TOP TRENDS

 

  • Versatile styles: Multipurpose sleeping bags are on the rise. Several recent releases follow the lines of the human body and can be worn as outerwear during winter. New models also include pieces that can function as an air bed or picnic mat.
  • Lightweight & compact designs: Many suppliers are opting for shells made of 20 or 40d nylon fabrics instead of 70 or 80 variants. Designs using the first two weigh 40 to 50 percent less than versions adopting 70 or 80d textiles. A number can be folded to the size of a vacuum flask.
  • Modified down filling: For insulation, some companies are employing down treated to repel water. Sleeping bags in this input are priced at least $2 higher than traditional down-filled models.
  • Sales projections: Suppliers targeting the upscale segment expect overseas revenue to increase 10 percent this year despite the economic crunch in the US and the EU. Sales of low-end designs are projected to remain stable, buoyed by international events such as the Munich Oktoberfest and London Olympics.
