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.
We make and sell outdoor equipment and apparel to improve every outdoor experience
WHO WE ARE
We’re a company of outdoor lovers. We’re backpackers, mountain bikers, back-country skiers, conservationists, climbers, rafters, yogis, trail runners, triathletes, musicians, cyclists, campfire masters, volunteers and very poor softball players.
WHAT WE DO
Headquartered in Boulder, CO, we use the mountains at our doorstep for inspiration to create the best gear for any outdoor adventure.
MADE IN AMERICA
Exxel Outdoors owns and operates the largest sleeping bag factory in America, located in Haleyville, Alabama. The facility produces approximately two million sleeping bags per year, with capacity to make four million. Currently we produce rectangular sleeping bags, made in America with imported materials. Our production plans are underway to bring our mummy and shaped sleeping bag production to our Alabama factory.
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. Exxel is a significant employer in Haleyville, Alabama, and stimulates interstate commerce in the region. We provide affordable and accessible healthcare to our employees and their families.
