The Trek&Mountain magazine (UK) tested out 12 leading models. The DownMat UL 7M got the Editor's Choice.

"We've been testing the DeepSleep System all summer long and unanimously agree it offers a great night's rest, at home or in the woods. For comfort, it's hard to beat."

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."

Here's an excellent review of the Lightning 60 from SectionHiker.com. Looks like it's still a bit cold where he's hiking...

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.
