Klymit’s Inertia-X-Frame Wins Coveted International Design Honors
Recognized for groundbreaking camping pad technology, Klymit earns an ISPO BrandNew Award and exhibition space at the ISPO tradeshow in Munich, Germany
Ogden, UT—Dec. 20, 2010 —Klymit®, an innovator in advanced outdoor technology, is pleased to accept the honor of winning the coveted ISPO BrandNew Award in the Summer Hardware category for its Inertia X-Frame camping pad. The world’s largest start-up competition in the sporting goods industry, the ISPO BrandNew Awards chose Klymit as one of six category winners from a pool of more than 1,000 applicants.
For the last decade, the ISPO BrandNew Award has been regarded as the barometer of future trends, aiming to give young entrepreneurs an opportunity to exhibit their products to the global market.
Launched in the summer of 2010, the Klymit Inertia-X-Frame has gained respect in the outdoor industry as the lightest, most packable full length camping pad, weighing only 9.1 ounces. It boasts the ability to pack down to the size of a soda can. Using loft pocket technology, the Inertia-X-Frame provides improved performance from sleeping bags, allowing the insulation to loft out, increasing warmth. In the world of fast and light backpacking, the Klymit Inertia X-Frame is the gold standard for durable camping gear.
“In our industry, there is no higher honor than being awarded an ISPO BrandNew Award,” said Klymit CEO Nate Alder. “It’s a dream come true for our team to be recognized on a global scale by other innovators. We’re looking forward to Munich in February.”
As a category winner, Klymit will be featured at the ISPO – International Sports Business Network tradeshow in Munich, Germany February 6-9th, 2011.
In addition to the Inertia-X-Frame, Klymit has gained notoriety from its first product launch, the Klymit Kinetic Vest featuring NobleTek® insulation. Winner of the 2009 Popular Science Magazine’s Best of What’s New Award, the Klymit Kinetic Vest is insulated using argon gas. Warmer and lighter than other insulators, Klymit has made a name for itself as a true innovator in the outdoor industry,
