Canadian Company Integral Tactical by FELLFAB® Develops Extreme Cold Sleep System, XCSS with Rapid Egress and LinZip Technology

Sleeping Bag Web Graphic - PR

Hamilton, Ontario, Canada – 10-July-2015 – Canadian owned Integral Tactical by FELLFAB® recently launched XCSS (Extreme Cold Sleep System), at the Canadian Military conference CANSEC.

What makes XCSS unique is its patent pending rapid egress system and superior thermal protection properties.

The XCSS sleeping bag system was initially conceptualized after hearing many stories about soldiers being awakened by enemy fire and then the difficulty they had exiting their bag due to a zipper snag.

With these stories in mind the Integral Tactical by FELLFAB® design team set out to develop a revolutionary new sleeping bag system that would incorporate an anti-snag, rapid egress design and be suitable across a wide range of temperatures.

After 2 years of research and development, Integral Tactical by FELLFAB® launched the XCSS system. XCSS is a 3 module sleep system comprising of; a synthetic bag (XCSS 01), a down bag (XCSS 02), and optional hygiene liner (XCSS 03). Each sleeping bag incorporates the newly designed LinZip anti-snag zipper and innovative internal cord management systems.

The protected LinZip system allows the user to immediately pull apart the bag for rapid egress, eliminating the need to search for a zipper pull. LinZip works in conjunction with the sleeping bags ergonomically designed angled zipper which follows a natural pulling motion. The internal cord management system places all of the cords inside of the bag. There is no need to take your hands out of the bag to make adjustments, maximizing heat retention.

“We are very aware that our troops have been waiting for quite some time to upgrade their current military sleep system and have invested considerably to develop the best the industry has ever seen”, said Eric Taylor, President of FELLFAB®.

Due to incredible demand, Integral Tactical by FELLFAB® will offer a commercial version of the XCSS sleeping bags online:  at: www.integraltactical.com.
