SALT LAKE CITY — August 3, 2010 — Enhancing the performance capabilities of insulated outerwear
design, Climashield today unveiled CONTUR – a breakthough brand of insulation combining the
durability of continuous filament with a soft, slim framework for ultimate flexibility.
Attendees at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market Show (Booth #38055) can get a hands-on experience
of the unique four-way stretch, thin construction and plush feel of this industry-first insulation
For weathering the great outdoors, Climashield CONTUR delivers supreme warmth in a
revolutionary thin package for pants, jackets, gloves and footwear that are both functional and
stylish. With unsurpassed breathability, this insulation is quick to dry and features
AquaBanÔ technology, which enhances moisture transfer from the body and prevents a clammy feel
amidst wet conditions. Climashield CONTUR is also 100 percent recyclable.
“Climashield’s advanced technologies and manufacturing accomplishments have made us the
preferred insulation provider for performance sleeping bags and we want to bring this expertise to
our customers in outerwear design,” said Matt Schrantz, Chief Operating Officer of HarVest Consumer
Insulation, Inc., Climashield’s parent company. “With CONTUR, our customers can achieve
maximum levels of thermal efficiency without adding bulk or sacrificing comfort and style.
The end result is outerwear that moves with the body and feels good next to the skin.”
During the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market Show, attendees can stop by Booth #38055 to find
out how to win gear on Facebook and experience the advantages of Climashield’s insulation at the
interactive zone. The interactive space gives show attendees the opportunity to view the
expansive product portfolio, test the durability of the insulation in a hands-on test and see a
demonstration of AquaBan technology.
Attendees of the show can also put Climashield’s durability and stretch to the test in the
Climashield Tug of War challenge at the Rock & Ice Climbing Zone (Booth #2033). The men’s
competition starts on Wednesday, August 4 at 4:00 p.m. and the women’s competition starts on
