Quite a feat, setting up a tent in strong winds and on solid ground. Christian Pries and partner master the challenge with the Venus II.

SynMat WinterLite

Trailspace.com recently reviewed the new SynMat WinterLite, coming in March to specialty retailers. 

 

DownMat UL 7 is the ultralight version of the DownMat 7 being 20% lighter and yet equally warm. It comes without an integrated pump, but with a smart pump bag, the Schnozzel Pumpbag. 

Rüdiger Flothmann had thoroughly tested the DownMat UL 7 M on his blog:

"Wind-prone construction? Will the spacious Exped Orion 3 Extreme also convince in stormy regions?". Outdoor Magazin tester Boris Gnielka was wondering about this question and made the real-time test. Below his findings published in the Dec 2014 issue (in German):

"Exped's Glissade backpack is characterized by its straightforward, functional design as well as very good carrying comfort." Tanja Walser tested this winter touring pack and posted her impressions on "ich-liebe-berge.ch":

"The mini pack Core 25 by Exped does not have much to offer - this is exactly what makes it so desirable." Outdoor Magazin 11/2014

[please note that the 2014 Lightning lower side compression strap goes behing the side pocket, rather than over it]

There is nothing more annoying than a waterproof drybag that accumulates moisture on the inside instead of keeping it out. This is why no matter how simple an Exped Drybag may seem, every detail is designed with care and manufactured with quality and durability in mind.

Simon Ingram from the Trail-Magazine recommends our Fold Drybags.
