Sierra Designs Successfully Settles Intellectual Property Dispute

Sierra Designs is proud to announce the successful resolution of a challenge in German court to their intellectual property, regarding their innovative zipperless sleeping bag. The Backcountry Bed is confirmed as the true pioneer in zipperless sleeping bags in the European Market.

“We’re pleased with the confirmation that this award-winning product is truly the original, and excited to announce that the most comfortable sleeping bag on the market is one uniquely available from Sierra Designs,” says VP/GM George Bryant.

Designed to work more like a bed and less like a sleeping bag, the Backcountry Bed features a unique zipperless construction with access provided through a large opening in the top. An oversized, integrated comforter seals this opening, allowing you to sleep comfortably and intuitively on your back, side or stomach, a feat that is impossible to accomplish with a traditional mummy bag. The comforter can either be tucked in on cold nights or untucked when the weather is warmer. All of this means the Backcountry Bed is the most versatile and comfortable sleeping bag on the market today. The Backcountry Bed features PFC-free hydrophobic 700 fill DriDown™ insulation and materials and is offered in 20? Reg/Long and Women’s-specific constructed options, and 35? Reg/Long.

QS Fencing Provides A-Z Service for Residential Fencing in Vancouver

As a Vancouver-based fencing company, the team at QS Fencing have specialized in residential fencing solutions since the company launched in 2010. To help homeowners who require fence installation for privacy and protection, QS Fences provides all-metal fencing and gates. For more, go to: http://www.qsfencing.ca/

Three of the most popular residential fencing services provided to homeowners are the repair and installation of metal pickets, privacy fences, and gates.

Picket fences function as a decorative or ornamental fence while providing a physical barrier around a property or garden. Commonly seen around the perimeter of a yard, the distinct style of a picket fence is well known to homeowners and easily adapted into metal for greater durability and style.

While privacy fences are more commonly associated with commercial rather than residential applications, options like the chain link fence, ornamental aluminum or steel fence panels are a viable option for homeowners concerned about safety and privacy. Products can be powder-coated in an unlimited selection of colors, and for commercial applications where security is paramount, options like barb and razor wire can be added.

Finally, as part of the services QS Fencing provides, gates (automatic or otherwise) can also be added to a fence. The team can work one on one with homeowners to help select and implement a solution that suits the property, architecture, and budget.
