The Lycra Company has announced that it is working closely with successful outdoor clothing and equipment retailer, Trespass to help it further develop its performance collection.

“Trespass is dedicated to developing products that offer customers unrivalled quality and functionality, and for that reason they pay a great deal of attention to what ingredient materials go into their products. The addition of The Lycra Company’s high performing technologies such as Lycra, Thermolite and Coolmax brands within key products enables Trespass to realise this vision,” Lycra said in a press statement today.

“In its most recent offering, Trespass launched its new Tranquill 3 Season Sleeping bag with Thermolite Insulation (150gms/sqm). The inclusion of Thermolite technology has resulted in an ultra-light sleeping bag that offers an exceptional 3-season temperature range with an upper limit of 9C and lower limit of –15C, without being bulky and heavy. A premium ingredient material that consistently offers the best possible performance, Thermolite technology is engineered to keep the user warmer longer. It offers functional insulation with excellent durability, which is why it was the ideal choice for inclusion in this top-of-the-range sleeping back,” it said.

“Working with The Lycra Company has really helped us to push forward our vision of offering our customers the best performance products, exceptional quality and value. Not only are The Lycra Company’s innovative fibres and insulations second-to-none, but the team has worked closely with us and using our combined knowledge and experience, we have and continue to develop ground-braking innovations that will benefit our customers,” said Colette Caven, Trespass Design and Production Developer.

The Lycra Company is currently working on several more lines with Trespass to further extend its performance offering for customers, including the inclusion of more sustainable fabric options in 2020, which is essential in the outdoor market. As part of The Lycra Company’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, it has set a goal to convert the majority of its Thermolite and Coolmax fibres business to EcoMade, which is made from post-consumer recycled materials such as plastic bottles, by 2020.

Mark Guymer, Accounts Manager at The Lycra Company commented: “Trespass is one of the UK and Europe’s most successful outdoor clothing retailers and we are proud to be working with them, using our combined knowledge and experience to stay one step ahead of consumer expectations and create outstanding performance items for their customers.”

The new Trespass Tranquill 3 Season Sleeping bag with Thermolite technology is available from Trespass Online and in selected Trespass stores.
