B$Z: Selk’bag USA to Sponsor 12th Annual Red Rock Rendezvous

Selk’bag USA, Inc., the company responsible for melding the functionality of a sleeping bag into a wearable silhouette, is proud to sponsor the 2015 Red Rock Rendezvous. The climbing festival aimed at outdoor enthusiasts and tailored to climbers of all abilities and interests, kicks off today to bring fun and togetherness to the outdoor community.

“We are stoked to have Selk'bag join us for the completely sold out Mountain Gear Red Rock Rendezvous in Las Vegas this year,” said Doyle Wheeler, the Social Media Director at Mountain Gear. “Selk’bag is a great fit for our event and I think everyone attending will be really psyched to experience the uniqueness of the product.”

Selk’bag will host a scavenger hunt contest, and provide swag for event participants. All attendees will have the chance to demo each of the different Selk’bag collections. There will be a daily Selk’bag scavenger hunt for individuals interested in taking one home with them. To mirror the brand’s mantra “Fun, Friends, Family,” Rendezvous participants may have to take ‘selfies’ with strangers or explore the event grounds to uncover certain mysteries. Each day, one lucky winner will be selected and will win his or her own Selk’bag.

Additionally, the Original line of Selk’bags will be on sale during the event, with select colors on sale for 40-percent off at the Mountain Gear Tent.

The Red Rock Rendezvous is in its 12th year and only continues to grow year after year. Featured events at this year’s Rendezvous include: clinics of varying intensity, a festival kick-off party, pancake breakfast, contests and other non-climbing activities such as yoga, mountain biking and slack lining.

“We are very excited to participate in our first Red Rock Rendezvous as an event sponsor,” said Philip Benson, President of Selk’bag USA. “We have a long time partnership with Mountain Gear and when they invited us to participate in this exciting and unique climbing event, we jumped at the opportunity.”

Selk’bag joins a range of other outdoor brands in sponsoring this year’s Rendezvous that will take place in Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas from March 27-29th. Other event sponsors include Black Diamond, Petzl, SCARPA and Clif Bar.
