The new OFFIS Textile Ltd. Sleeping Bag Sleeve is meant for use in wet conditions, especially high flood areas, where insects are widespread. Most serious fever diseases, such as yellow fever, malaria and the Zika virus, are transmitted by insects, notably mosquitoes. The company says that its new 240-by-80 cm sleeping bag sleeve will reduce the number of mosquitoes landing and biting, and is effective against dust mites, ticks and bedbugs, as well.
Its protective finish has been tested and found to be non-irritating to the skin, and it is effective for up to 100 washings. The product is also compliant with OEKO-TEX standards for substances of very high concern and it is manufactured with substances that are safe for all uses, including for children.
The product was developed for use by travelers, government security forces and for camping and sports activities. It can be used on its own or as a sleeve for another sleeping bag.
