ARTICLE: How to Support the Outdoor Industry During COVID-19

As a small but growing industry, the outdoor sphere will be severely impacted by the effects of COVID-19. One thing we've got going for us, however, is a tightly-knit community of climbers and walkers who have already demonstrated acts of solidarity towards climbing walls, outdoor freelancers and other small businesses. Crowdfunding pages have been set up and social media has been put to its best use in fielding support for the vulnerable and most hard-hit people during this time of need. Here are some ways you can help keep the outdoor industry afloat and keep others in good spirits.

New WingLock and TwinLock valves from Therm-a-Rest® speed up inflation and deflation

New for 2020, Therm-a-Rest launch the WingLock and TwinLock valves, designed to enhance the experience at camp by speeding up both inflation and deflation. 

The one-way WingLock valve ensures that no air escapes during inflation, and makes deflation a much speedier part of packing up.  The WingLock can be found across Therm-a-Rest’s full range of lightweight air and self-inflating mats, including the award-winning UberLight.  Therm-a-Rest’s larger mats will be fitted with the TwinLock valve; a single one-way valve for inflation, and a separate valve which opens up fully for deflation.

Therm-a-Rest mats with the new valves are available in stores now!
