(February 1, 2006) - Sierra Designs has spent more than 40 years
developing durable, high-performance equipment and apparel for
consumers worldwide. For fall and winter 2006, Sierra Designs continues
to focus on innovating fresh new designs and fabrics, while continuing
to focus and refine products that have worked for them for years.
With its award-winning DriZone waterproof-breathable fabric on a
number of tents, sleeping bags as well as down clothing, Sierra Designs
offers some of the best warmth-to-weight ratio products on the market.
Additionally, the use of the PrimaLoft One® synthetic insulation for
2006 allows Sierra Designs to provide low-bulk, lightweight and
extremely soft garments mixed with a high level of compressibility and
years of performance. The new X-Forst™ treatment on the Elevation and
Classic Down products delivers a non-coated water repellent treatment
that enhances weather protection and breathability.
"We've always been innovators in terms of design and engineering,
and this season we've taken our core products and obsessed over every
element to make sure they are the absolute best available, in every
category," said Mark Herbert, President of Sierra Designs and Ultimate
Direction. "In considering the critical attributes of Sierra Designs
gear, we focused our attention to five key areas for 2006: function,
fit, fabrics, finish and fashion."
