Pacific Outdoor Equipment InsulMat Eco Thermo 6
The Eco Thermo 6 is the outdoor industry’s first carbon-neutral sleeping pad.

Pacific Outdoor Equipment purchases renewable wind and solar power to offset the CO2 produced from manufacturing and shipping the pads, thereby making the pad’s carbon footprint neutral.
