Kelty proudly introduces DriDown™ hydrophobic down technology in new Ignite series sleeping bags
October 23, 2012
Game-changing DriDown™ technology now enhances Kelty sleeping bag performance
in any overnight situation
With a hydrophobic finish applied to individual down plumes, DriDown™ helps down sleeping bags stay dry seven times longer in the presence of rain, spills, or perspiration; retain 34% more loft than untreated down when exposed to moisture and humidity; and dry 33% faster for a dryer, warmer, more comfortable night’s sleep.
“DriDown’s™ ability to perform in the presence of moisture is revolutionary, and we’re very excited to introduce this technology into our new line of Ignite down sleeping bags,” said Sue Timbo, Marketing Director for Kelty. “DriDown™ technology costs almost nothing and the benefits are immediately noticeable. This is great news for anyone who wants a high performance sleeping bag offering Kelty’s legendary quality and value.”
DriDown™ will be available in the new for spring 2013 Kelty Ignite Down 0° and Ignite Down 20° sleeping bags. Both Ignite bags offer all the benefits of down- light weight, superior warmth, and excellent compressibility- combined with DriDown’s™ outstanding performance in the presence of moisture.
Stuffed with 600-fill DriDown™ insulation, the Ignite Down 0° will keep you toasty warm on freezing nights. Weighing in at 3-pounds, 9-ounces, this bag is light and compressible enough to take on any cold weather overnight. Available in regular, long, and women’s specific sizes. $259.
For outstanding 3-season performance, the 600-fill DriDown™ Ignite Down 20° sleeping bag delivers. Light, warm, and above all dry in the presence of moisture, this 2-pound, 12-ounce bag outperforms standard down bags in any climate. Available in regular, long, and women’s specific sizes. $199.
