Major Increase in Sales for Brooks-Range Mountaineering in 2016

July 28, 2016

San Leandro, Calif. (July 28, 2016) – Sales are on the rise for Brooks-Range Mountaineering in 2016, with a 28 percent increase in the first two quarters of the year. The winter season kick-started the growth thanks largely to driving sales from shelters and sleeping bags.

Available now, the Drift series sleeping bags, which have been a popular pick among mountaineers and weekend warriors alike, come in an array of temperatures ranging from -10 to 45 degree bags, all of which feature 850+ fill power DownTek®.

With performance features and practicality in mind, Brooks-Range will showcase a new sleeping bag series, available Spring 2017, at Outdoor Retailer: the Snooze, available in 35, 20 and 5 degree-options. The Snooze 20 is an excellent price to weight ratio; the 700-fill Goose Down bag is $300 and will keep you toasty down to 20 degrees.

With new products in the lineup for Spring 2017, including a new Polartec Alpha vest and pant, Jeff Blakely, Brooks-Range general manager, looks forward to what’s ahead.

“We’re taking this positive momentum into Outdoor Retailer next week, where we’ll be introducing some really exciting new products,” said Blakely. “We look forward to showcasing what’s in store for Spring 2017— sleeping bags and active insulation that can be relied on for a safe and enjoyable outdoor adventure.”

Brooks-Range Mountaineering will be exhibiting at booth #7051 at Outdoor Retailer.
