So you decide to go camping. You grab your hammock, your sleeping bag, a few other items and you are good to go. You arrive at your site and it's getting dark, quick. You hang your hammock, throw in your sleeping bag and hop in. Five minutes pass, you feel a slight chill on your back, you turn to your side. You still feel the chill. What is that chill?
CBS: Cold Butt Syndrome
We use "LOFT" technology to hang insulation lower than your bum... No more CBS (Cold Butt Syndrome). But more specifically - how does the Premus™ keep you warm?
LOFT is the ability of insulation to trap air between the fibers (synthetic insulation) or feather dander (down). This allows for the trapped air pockets to be warmed up. For our synthetic insulation, this is achieved by allowing the insulation hang separately without compression below your backside. For our down insulation, it is the same idea but a different insulation type.
We use 3 main layers of material. The 1st holds your weight. The 2nd insulates you. The 3rd breaks the wind.

When SWAYY was started, we had a vision for more than the creation of awesome outdoor gear. That vision is to make a lasting difference in the world at large. Watch the video below to get a glimpse of that vision.
