Exped wins another European Outdoor Industry Award

Details are still a bit slow in coming, but we can confirm that Exped has won another award from the outdoor industry of Europe. This time it's for the FlatValve Technology on the sleeping mats. FlatValves are on current Exped mats for 2009 and offer a significant advantage over previous valves. In particular, FlatValves are much softer and more flexible and lack the sharp edges found on other valves, greatly decreasing the chances for air leakage around the valves. They also offer higher volume air flow for both inflation and deflation.

More to come as we get further updates on the award.
