By making the top of the bag shorter than the bottom or base of the bag, the resulting exposed area becomes a headrest that keeps heads off the floor and pillows from sliding out in the middle of the night. Filled with insulation, this headrest can also function as a pillow when needed. With both regular sizes suited for users up to 5 feet, 11 inches tall and big & tall sizes for user up to 6 feet, 4 inches tall, Coleman's new scoop neck-style sleeping bags are available in versions for warm weather (40-60F), cool weather (30-50F) and cold weather (20-40F). Fitted with varying weights of ThermoTech insulation and soft, brushed exteriors and liners, these sleeping bags will keep sleepers comfortable whether they’re deep in the woods or having a sleepover in the living room.
Each of these new Coleman sleeping bags feature the industry's only patented anti-snag zipper, FiberLock construction to prevent uneven distribution of insulation, and Roll Control & Quick Cord easy rolling features to ensure proper storage. Beginning in 2010, Coleman sleeping bags will also change the way consumers shop for outdoor gear by giving easy-to-read comfort zone and size ratings on the end of each package. Driven by consumer requests for added information to make purchase decisions easier, these easily identified marks will help ensure that users can select the ideal bag for any outing.
Lanterns: The Coleman LED Quad Lantern launched in 2009, quickly gaining a reputation as one of the most innovative, unique and user-friendly lights available to outdoor enthusiasts. Following in the wake of the original, Coleman's new XPS LED Duo Lantern brings versatility and innovation to users who require something smaller.
The LED Duo Lantern functions just like the original LED Quad Lantern but with two removable panels. Featuring 12 5-mm LEDs (six per removable side panel) that never need to be replaced, the Duo Lantern may be smaller in stature but it delivers big performance. Producing 96 lumens of light output from an XPS 4D Battery Pack (6V rechargeable battery pack optional), the LED Duo Lantern will run for 76 hours - more than enough for an extended weekend stay at the campground. Each panel, operated by a rechargeable battery, offers its own on/off switch and will run for 1.5 when removed from the docking station for quick trips to the shower house or anywhere else. Once placed back into the docking station, the panels will be recharged. Because it's XPS compatible, the 4D battery or rechargeable power pack can be interchanged with any Coleman XPS-compatible product for added efficiency and lower cost of ownership.
Tent Lighting: Forget searching through a mound of sleeping bags and clothes for flashlights; enter and exit the tent with complete safety and privacy. Coleman's new LED Tent Lighting System with XPS Energy Pack allows campers to integrate lighting into their shelter, bringing the convenience of hands-free illumination to a place where it is needed most. Powered by Coleman's new 6V XPS Energy Pack, which can be used to power any XPS-compatible Coleman product, the LED Tent Lighting System will run for 40 hours and offers both high/low settings and a night light function for non-disruptive nighttime use or privacy when changing. On hard-wired models (available on the Elite Sundome 6, Elite Montana 8, Elite Evanston 8, Elite Weathermaster 6 Screened, and Signature Stonewall 9), the system will have a wall-mounted, backlit switch meaning there are no remotes to lose. The XPS Energy Pack, powered by 4 D-cell batteries or a rechargeable battery, can also be used to recharge today's most popular tech devices like cell phones and mp3 players using a convenient USB port.
