Starting in the early 80's as a distributor of other outdoor brands, Exped began to build their own gear in 1997. Since then they have created many highly innovative products and won many awards for unique designs. Since 1997, the Exped team, based in Switzerland, have been designing and building the highest quality, specialised gear for the active, outdoor enthusiast. Equipment designed to appeal to everyone whether hiking the Appalachian Trail or climbing in the Himalaya.
Every user expects their equipment to meet exacting standards. Exped build products intended to surpass those expectations! You won't find any superficial "feature-itis" - just the minimum, straightforward features and tools that function well. Unnecessary extras that just increase weight, but add no value or utility, are left out. Featuring ingenious simplicity, superb craftsmanship with lightweight, durable materials, Exped maximises your outdoor experience with the minimum of gear.
The principle "less is more" flows into the development of Exped gear in which every feature and extra is one hundred percent in tune with its function in the outdoors. Refined details increase the functionality and comfort of our products with the use of minimal means.
