The vibrant colored Cinch series sleeping bag is a versatile sleep system ready for adventure. The Cinch is a tapered rectangle design with open ends featuring quick and easy drawstring closure for comfort adjustment - keep the ends open on warm nights for added air circulation, or cinch the end closed for added heat retention on cooler evenings. A full-length zipper allows the Cinch to open completely for use as a traditional quilt, and elastic loops are provided along the zippered edges for use as a hammock sleeping bag. The Cinch is made with ultra-light 380T 20D nylon fabric with synthetic TechLoft Micro insulation. TechLoft Micro insulation consists of multiple denier staple-length fibers that have a siliconized finish for maximum insulation, loft, and compactness. It is an ultra-lightweight insulation that has a tremendous weight-to warmth ratio making the Cinch a great option for mild-weather back-packing trips, hammock camping, snuggling around the camp fire, indoor sleepovers, and more.

Since our inception in 1993 by outdoor gear designer and company founder Dennis Brune, ALPS has become an innovation and customer satisfaction leader. Founder Brune enjoyed a successful career beginning in 1979 with the technical mountaineering manufacturer Kelty. He moved from product development to sales and marketing, then to management.
Brune had a vision of an outdoor company that would deliver high-quality performance gear priced within a comfortable reach for the everyday outdoorsman and woman. In essence, premium outdoor products whose performance exceeded the expectations of their price points. This combined with a focused attention on customer service has been a winning combination.
Dennis and his wife, LaRayne, wanted to share the passion for the outdoors with their three children. The time spent outdoors are their most cherished memories, and continue to be the stories told when they're together. Brian, Adam and Sarah Kristin have their roles in the company today. The family business was redefined as each child's spouses joined the ALPS team throughout the years. The pride of passing on a passion to your children is an amazing feeling, but to pass along a passion through your children to your grandchildren is something to treasure.
ALPS headquarters was built out of and around the Brune home. In 2015, they officially out-grew their Lyon campus and purchased a 100,000 sq. ft. building in the city limits of New Haven, where the bulk of their warehousing staff and products are now located.
