Guido from "Outdoorshop-Magazin" has taken a close look at our new Thunder backpack, tested it thoroughly and published his review. His conclusion: "Exped has built a great, extremely lightweight pack with the Thunder 50. Despite reduction to the minimum, especially on the suspension system, it manages to carry serious loads comfortably."

Friedrichshafen - The Outdoor 2015 offered an extensive market overview and attracted all important decision makers to underscore its importance as the premier global outdoor trade show. 21,464 trade visitors from 85 countries congregated in Friedrichshafen Germany for the 22. Outdoor Show that ended on Saturday after 4 extremely hot summer days.

A 1000 km race from Salzburg to Monaco across the Alps, exclusively on foot or by flight using a paraglider has successfully come to an end. Although he had to fight with sickness and had to take a break, Swiss athlete Peter von Bergen (Team SUI4) hung in there and successfully crossed the finishing line in 13th place. Excellent, we congratulate him to this feat! We hope our Lightning pack served you well.

The winners:

1. C. Maurer, Team SUI1 (Winner of 4 consecutive races)

2. S. Huber, Team GER3

3. P. Guschlbauer, Team AUT1

With support from the National Geographic Global Exploration Fund and numerous sponsors, Martin Edström and his team mounted a successful expedition to Hang Son Doong in Vietnam in early 2015. The result was a next-generation digital reportage, covering large parts of the cave in 360° images and audio. This interactive and immersive experience lets you explore the cave for yourself.
