In April 2015, Exxel Outdoors and American Recreation Products merged to become the leading provider of high quality, innovative outdoor recreation products as well as being the largest sleeping bag company manufactured in the United States. We maintain a broad and growing range of authentic outdoor brands in equipment and apparel for the backyard camper to the high alpine expedition mountaineer.

Our American factory allows us to provide short lead times of one week for our retailers, and enables us to offer Just-in-Time inventory replenishment with as fast as three-day delivery.
