Have you purchased a Torrent 30 or 45 between March 1, 2019 and November 30, 2019? The following may apply to you:

Unfortunately, we need to recall the waterproof backpacks Torrent 30 and 45 with the production number (LOT) 9110. We have discovered that not all seams offer 100% waterproof performance. This could lead to damage of the packed contents. 

This recall applies to the backpack model Torrent in sizes 30 and 45 liters (all colors) and exclusively of this year’s spring production (LOT 9110). This number is marked on the backpacks hangtag above the barcode, but also on a black textile tab on the backpack itself. The tab is located under the buckle of the left shoulder strap. Please check the number prior to further action.

Proceed as follows: If your Torrent 30 or 45 is of this production LOT (9110) please return it to the retailer from which you purchased it and they will take further action.

Exped Torrent backpacks have been reliable and durable travel companions for years. Our high standard of quality must be ensured and has lead us to initiate this recall. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.
