SEATTLE, Washington - Therm-a-Rest, the global brand leader in outdoor comfort, has announced the launch of Therm-a-Rest® Comfort SystemsTM for 2008. The Trek & TravelTM Series is being expanded with the addition of key new products - the Tech BlanketTM and Fitted SheetTM, that together maximize outdoor comfort, providing customers with multiple sleep options whether in the backcountry or car camping. Additionally, the Trek & Travel Series will have two new self-inflating mattresses - the Trail ProTM and the TrailTM, along with two new sizes of the innovative puncture resistant ToughSkinTM mattress.
Therm-a-Rest Tech Blanket and Fitted Sheet, parts of a modular Comfort
System, can be used together, separately or in an addition to a current
sleep set-up. The Fitted Sheet is available in two sizes to fit snugly
around a 20 or 25 inch Therm-a-Rest mattress for next-to-skin comfort,
and can two can be snapped together for easy coupling of mattresses.
The lightweight, quilted nylon Tech Blanket snaps to the fitted sheet
for a secure top layer, but can also be used around the campfire like a
poncho; for napping and sleeping in warm weather, or traveling in a car
or airplane. The versatile Tech Blanket even folds into its own pouch
to make a pillow.
"35 years ago, Therm-a-Rest invented the
self-inflating sleeping mattress, which redefined how one could sleep
warm and comfortably on the ground," said Doug Jacot, Therm-a-Rest
Business Manager. "With the introduction of Comfort Systems, we're
again raising the bar to the next level - that you can sleep outside
like you do at home - and that a good night's sleep enhances your
enjoyment of any outdoor activity."
Therm-a-Rest is also
introducing the Trail Pro and Women's Trail Pro mattresses, the
lightest two-inch mattresses they have ever made. Applying the same
foam design as the best-selling ProLiteTM mattress Series, the Trail Pro
offers weight savings without compromising comfort - resulting in the
ultimate combination for people that sometimes carry their gear. The
women's model offers extra insulation at the torso and feet, where
women lose body heat first.
The Therm-a-Rest Trail mattress is a
value-priced self-inflating mattress, ideal for summer camps and
first-time backpackers. Using a solid sheet of foam covered in textured
polyurethane, the Trail mattress makes for a warm, lightweight and
non-slip sleeping pad.
All new products in the Trek & Travel Series will be available in January 2008.
