Insotect Introduces New Insulation System; Insotect Tubic™

VANCOUVER BC July 18, 2012 - Insotect Ltd. is pleased to officially introduce its latest insulation system; Insotect Tubic™.

Building on the momentum of previous Insotect insulation systems, Insotect Tubic represents the latest innovation in construction technology for sleeping bags that utilize synthetic fiber-insulation.

Insotect Tubic combines the presence of two Insotect proprietary technologies; Vertical Thermal Channel™ (VTC) and DualVault™ into one complete vertically baffled insulation system. This system allows a pair of arched insulation fibers to run unobstructed from head to toe while supporting the integrity of the insulations arched form.

This unique construction method traps more air than conventional systems by increasing vertical loft (from body to the outside environment) and horizontal loft (from head to toe) which in turn enhances heat retention. The additional loft combined with the exceptional resiliency of the arched insulation fibers subsequently provides a degree of extra cushioning against rough outdoor contours.

Insotect is also pleased to be able to include Pinneco Core - developed by Pinneco Research Ltd. - as the ingredient fiber insulation for Insotect Tubic. The inclusion of Pinneco Core stems from a new strategic alliance between Insotect Ltd. and Pinneco Research Ltd. The unique performance properties of both Insotect Tubic & Pinneco Core make an ideal match as the two products have been specifically tailored to maximize each others performance capabilities.

"Insotect Tubic illustrates our continued dedication in bringing breakthrough performance and innovation to the outdoor gear market. This insulation system adds yet another significant asset to our know-how portfolio. We are also excited to draw on a new strategic channel which deepens our value proposition for our distributors and partners." - Irvin Vale Akopov, Brand Manager.

Insotect Tubic is slated for market availability in early 2013.
