Josh sits down with Dale Lewis the founder of Fortress Clothing. Fortress Clothing, based out of Mt. Pleasant, Utah, was started as a way to provide people working in extreme conditions to last longer in harsh elements. When Dale Lewis found that his son needed to take absurdly frequent breaks from work to maintain his body heat while working in North Dakota, he got to work. After finding the proper materials and multiple prototypes he had found a design that lived up to the task while basing the design off a sweatshirt that he’s used for years without fail. Now Fortress delivers comfort and style to individuals in harsh working environments, preppers looking for the perfect bug-out gear, and recreators who want to stay outside longer and more comfortably.

Since then he’s sought to pursue and easier way to enjoy the comfort of a sleeping bag, thus creating the first no zipp, magnetic entry sleeping bag. After countless iteration he finally found the perfect recipe for a sleeping bag that will stay closed, let you dump heat when you need to, and never snag when trying to escape your camping cacoon. From there he took his game changing idea to the internet and went on to run a successful Kickstarter campaign to get Nozipp off the ground and has been at it ever since.
