Hailing from Zurich, Switzerland, Exped has been quietly bringing technologically advanced products into the hands of dedicated users since 1997. Renowned for their ultra-comfortable and highly packable sleeping mats, the brand also makes innovative tents, sleeping bags, packs, and more and is on their way to making a big splash in the U.S.
Here are 4 reasons why Exped is one of the best brands you’ve never heard of:
1. Simple: Ingenious simplicity incorporated throughout their product range allows for multiple uses with nearly all of their products. Just check out all the cool features on this tent.
2. Innovative: Award-winning and unique, each product that Exped creates takes a scrupulous look at current design and then works on making it more useful.
3. Bombproof: Exped over-builds each product they make in expectation of their customers putting their gear through the wringer.
4. Lightweight: In the eyes of Exped, less is more. Your back might just have to agree. This ultra-light sleeping pad uses its own waterproof stuff sack for inflation.
