Premier trade show OutDoor by ISPO has announced that Scandinavian technical outdoor equipment manufacturer, Robens, has won the new Outstanding Outdoor label for its Serac 900 sleeping bag. The Serac 900 was just one of 203 nominations in 28 categories and was recognised in the All-round sleeping bag section. 

Like all new Serac models, the Serac 900 (pictured below) has superb insulation to weight ratio and provides an increased 195cm body length for comfort. It has a stretch lining designed to counter movement for effective insulation by separating inner from shell to create room in the individually filled box wall chambers for the RDS-certified down to efficiently loft while minimising internal space to be heated without compromising comfort. The PFC-free lining provides efficient removal of moisture. A compression stuff sack and mesh storage sack are provided to store in the best condition on tour and at home. 

 The OutDoor by ISPO Outstanding Outdoor accolade is Europe’s leading international design awards from Europe’s largest industry exhibition for companies in the outdoor industry. New and innovative products, like the Serac sleeping bag, are assessed and awarded by an independent panel of expert judges. Due to its transparent evaluation process, the award provides independent confirmation of a product’s high level of innovation, functionality, quality and/or sustainability. In addition, it functions as an influential decision-making aid for consumers when making a purchase. 

The award organisers say: “OutDoor by ISPO not only stands for the annual trade show but a year-long, integrative and cross-media platform to an audience of international industry experts. With Outstanding Outdoor, we honour the highlight products of the outdoor industry with a special award label. Products that make the outdoor experience more enjoyable, more accessible, safer or simply that motivate to experience the outdoor world in all its diversity. 

“The award label ‘Outstanding Product’ honours outstanding achievements across all product categories. The products of the outdoor industry often set standards − the award label offers these highly innovative milestones and industry trends a communicative stage.” 

Further information about the Robens Serac 900 will be available at its public launch in November at
