Comfort lives up to its name in several important and unique ways. It is cut a little wider than other mummy bags, which makes it less constrictive. Knees can be pulled up within the bag and there's a little more room around the torso for unrestricted movement. There's a separate zipper at the foot, which allows for ventilation in the night and makes it possible for the user to walk around camp while wearing the bag! (Let's face it, nobody wants to get out of their sleeping bag on a cold morning).

On 31 July, She is outdoors presented awards for the first time – specifically for outdoor sports products for women. Among the winners is an Exped product, the new Ultra 3R Mat.

EXPED ambassador, Graham Zimmerman, and his partner Ian Welsted, have established basecamp for their attempt on the west ridge of K2. But before setting foot on K2, they have been acclimatizing on nearby Broad Peak; climbing up to sleep, do the uphill athlete thing and hang out as high as 7,000 meters. 

For this trip, EXPED built a high altitude tent to Graham's specifications. Called the Infinity, it's a single-wall, ultralight climbing tent designed to weather the worst storms while fitting onto small ledges and platforms. Just the right thing for the west ridge.

EXPED ambassador, Graham Zimmerman, has emerged, over the past decade, as one of the finest alpinists in the world. He has made many first ascents in the great mountain ranges of the world and won the highest praise from the mountaineering community. In 2020, he received the gold medal of alpinism, the coveted Piolet d’Or, for his team's 2019 first ascent of the southeast face of Link Sar (7041m) in the Pakistani Karakoram. All of his climbs are done in the cleanest style and with small teams. So with each passing year, we wonder what GZ’s next objective will be.

After Exped revolutionised the sleeping mat market years ago with the DownMat, we are now setting an example in terms of sustainable production. From 2021 onwards, all mats will be CO2 offset with Myclimate. This makes our mats the only and first climate-neutral ones on the market.

His passion is the mountains and he has climbed the famous Eiger North Face more than 50 times - now the well-known professional mountaineer Roger Schäli is Exped brand ambassador. As a Swiss all-round alpinist and above all as a person, Roger has been a friend to the Exped team for a long time. It's only logical that this has now finally led to a closer collaboration.
