Andy and Heidi working in the factories

Andy and Heidi are in Qingdao, China for the pre-production phase of Exped's sleeping bags. This particular factory has been an Exped partner for 10 years and as Andy says, the "laboratory cleanliness and precision, hard working and loud laughing partners make our days working here really enjoyable." During this phase, every model is scrutinized and production brought up to speed so the workflow is smooth and the highest quality is assured.

When we saw these photos come in this morning from Andy we thought that perhaps Exped
had decided to build its sleeping bags at NASA. Beautiful facilities!

We'll share more images from the Exped factories as they come in...
