Big Agnes公司Skinny Fish睡袋荣获最佳户外探险装备奖
Big Agnes公司生产的新型Skinny Fish 20°睡袋被国家地理探险杂志授予2008年最佳户外探险装备奖。获奖的产品由国家地理探险杂志编辑部以及来自45家户外零售商的谘询顾问投票产生。
“非常荣幸我们的Skinny Fish 20°睡袋获得了这个奖项。”Big Agnes创办人Bill Gamber说："在新年伊始，我们的新产品刚刚推出不久就获得了人们的认可，这不仅有助于增加Skinny Fish的曝光率，还连带推动了Big Agnes公司其它可循环再生产品的广告效应。令Big Agnes感到骄傲的是，拥有如此高的可回收利用率，这在目前睡袋市场上是绝无仅有的”。
该Skinny Fish 20°睡袋的特点是其99％的成分均属可回收再利用的材料，包括Climashield HL Green、尼龙格外层、衬里织物、拉绳和储物袋等等。它对生态是绿色无害的，主要好处是它采用的Climashield HL Green具有高绝热性、高压缩性、耐水性、耐久性和快干性等特点。Skinny Fish 20°睡袋（及同系列的Ripple Creek 35°睡袋）将于本月在各专卖店上架。

Steamboat Springs, Colo., January 10th, 2008 — Big Agnes Inc., maker of innovative sleeping bags, pads and tents, has been awarded National Geographic Adventure Magazine’s 2008 Best of Adventure Gear Award for the company’s new Skinny Fish 20° sleeping bag. Awarded products are selected by NGA editors and a consultative panel of 45 leading outdoor retailers. The primary goal of the retailers was to offer insight on innovative new products and which products they thought consumers would be most excited about in 2008.
“We are honored to receive the NGA award for the Skinny Fish,” says Big Agnes co-founder, Bill Gamber. “Being recognized at the start of the new year for a product that just launched will not only help us gain exposure and recognition for the Skinny Fish, but a host of other recycled products from Big Agnes’ Re-Routt Collection. Producing a sleeping bag which features the highest recycled content of any bag on the market is an achievement that Big Agnes is very proud of.”
The Skinny Fish 20° sets a new standard for sleeping bags incorporating recycled fabrics, fills and hardware. It is a 99% recycled sleeping bag which features Climashield HL Green 100% recycled content insulation with 100% recycled rip-stop nylon shell and liner fabric. Drawstring cord and stuff sacks are also derived from recycled content. In addition to it being eco-friendly, key benefits of the Climashield HL Green insulation are high-yield thermal efficiency, high compressibility, water resistance, durability and quick drying capability. The Skinny Fish 20° (along with its counterpart the Ripple Creek 35°) will be available at specialty retailers this month.
Named for a peak in the nearby Mt. Zirkel Wilderness, Big Agnes?, Inc. is loCATed in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, and produces award-winning sleeping bags, pads and tents. For more information, visit www.bigagnes.com or call 1-877-554-8975.
