We know selecting good gear makes a huge difference. From an expedition shelter and an alpine utility pack to a warm down sleeping bag or a lightweight, wicking shirt, picking the right piece to complete your kit can make the difference in transforming your average weekend trip into an epic adventure. This truth is the reason we focused our brand on building technical, performance-oriented gear more than five years ago.
The results have been stellar, with 18 industry awards that span our development spectrum, from the Alchemist Pack to the latest Gear of the Year innovation found in the revolutionary Airbender Sleeping Bag. But more than just the hero products, the process of building exceptional gear and the knowledge we gained have filtered down to every product that we make. As a result, the entire range of our gear provides the confidence to head outside and explore.
As our annual Gear Event hits full stride, we’ve decided to dig a bit deeper into how the Guide-Built process has generated such a long list of award-winning products. We’re starting with this video on the genesis of our new Airbender sleeping system. Watch and enjoy. —LYA Editor
Our guide team built this bag with one idea. Set a new standard for fast and light performance without sacrificing safe and warm. Best–in–class materials include an ultralight, tough, 15–denier Pertex® nylon shell. Top of the bag is insulated with 850 fill StormDown™ powered by DownTek™. The cutting edge DWR technology makes the goose down highly resistant to moisture, retaining its loft and full insulating power even in wet conditions. Bottom of the bag is insulated with ClimaShield® HL synthetic for superior performance in all weather. A patent–pending design integrates an inflatable, insulated pad that’s sewn directly into the bag. No need to carry a separate pad, and no extra straps, sleeves, hooks, hardware, or packaging. The stuff sack includes a built–in hand pump for inflating the pad. A true minimalist. With full–throttle performance.
