--- For immediate release ---
Sleepbreeze - best known for its innovative low-power, "go anywhere" cooling product - has selected Tactical Gear Command as its distributor in the United States for military and government sales.
Tactical Gear Command has an enviable reputation in meeting the needs of the US military and law enforcement agencies which has been proven over many years and were a natural fit for Sleepbreeze.
US authorities have recently acknowledged the cost and difficulty of cooling sleeping accommodation in Iraq, Afghanistan and Djibutti. Insurgents understand how critical fuel convoys are and actively target them. Military planners have set targets for reducing fuel consumption which Sleepbreeze's product could easily help achieve.
The Sleepbreeze personal cooler reduces the need for air conditioning by providing localised, direct direct air movement in bed. It is intended that the Sleepbreeze would be placed on or next to the camping cots used by troops. Sleepbreezes have have proved highly effective in heat waves in Australia and has been a boon for those trying to achieve thermal comfort when using mosquito nets.
"Following a sucessful demonstration at The Pentagon last year we felt it appropriate to work with a distributor who could best represent our product to the military market. We are delighted to be working with Tactical Gear Command" said Andy Buxton, Sleepbreeze's founder. "Increasingly we see that our product is more than an aid to comfort but can solve much broader problems faced by the military and civil emergency authorities. For this reason we want to get our product out to troops. We believe Tactical Gear Command are best able to help us achieve this."
