Sierra Designs Trade Wind Sleeping Bag Wins "2006 Gear Of The Year" By Outside Magazine

LOUISVILLE, COLO. (April 18, 2006) - Sierra Designs, a technical leader in developing innovative outdoor products including tents, sleeping bags and clothing for "people in the know", today announced that the Trade Wind 15-Degree DriZone™ waterproof/breathable sleeping bag was awarded the prestigious "Gear of the Year" award by Outside Magazine. This is the 2nd "Gear of the Year" award from Outside Magazine that Sierra Designs has received. The Reverse Combi tent won the "Gear of the Year" award in 2005 for its innovative Reverse Combi variable pole diameter system that created steeper walls for more livable space.

"We are honored to be the recipient of this highly coveted award," said Sierra Designs marketing manager Kristine Carey. "The DriZone waterproof/breathable fabric technology continues to receive recognition by industry gurus and the Outside Magazine editors and testers definitely put our products to the test. This is the second major award from industry gurus for the DriZone waterproof/breathable fabric technology."

The Trade Wind is an innovative 800-fill Goose Down bag that is revolutionary in its technology and performance. The sleeping bag is designed with the award-winning DriZone laminated waterproof and breathable fabric that allows moisture to escape while keeping condensation out. In addition, the polyester liner fabric aids in wicking moisture away from the body and offers a soft and comfortable hand that provides the opportunity for a great nights sleep. Finally, the 800-fill Goose Down is a natural renewable insulation that provides a higher "warmth-to-weight" ratio, longer life, best compression and is great for backcountry adventures.

Every year, Outside honors adventure products that seamlessly merge design, functionality and performance.

"Our athletes and experts put these products through the wringer on trips from the Grand Canyon to India, in conditions where quality gear can have a dramatic impact on your experience," said Dennis Lewon, editor of the 2006 Outside Buyer's Guide. "We tested hundreds of new adventure-sport-related products to find those with outstanding technical performance and design." For more information, visit www.outsideonline.com.
