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.

Outdoor ProLink recently reviewed EXPED's Outer Space II tent. Below is the summary, but click here for the full review. 

 

 
While many of EXPED's alpine mountaineering packs will double as ski/snowboard packs due to their versatile designs (snow-sliding tools are frequently used when taking on mountaineering objectives, after all), snowsport-specific packs are better for many outings.

EXPED USA has a reputation for outstanding customer service, and the work of our warranty service specialist, Annica, is a prominent part of it. Recently, she was interviewed by Outside Online for a piece they were doing on sleeping mat repair. Annica's name came up as they contacted repair shops for the article. 

Our friend, Graham, has been working with Protect Our Winters (POW) as an advocate for climate change awareness. An Imperfect Advocate is a film about his journey as an athlete-turned-activist.
