Team Exped: more fall backpacking - Goat Rocks Wilderness

























Photos: Brendan Collins


Brendan and his good friend Sonny (one of the star Exped office dogs) recently headed into the Goat Rocks Wilderness in Washington. They covered the miles in a mixture of sun and cloud and, of course, used Exped gear. Photos above include a Mira III tent and Explorer trekking poles as well some new products that will be new in March of 2013. The Lightning 60 pack and Travel Hammock are both finding their way on to trips we've been taking this year and we're familiarizing ourselves with them ahead of next year's introduction. Ligntning 45 and 60 are super light and exceedingly comfortable. Definitely a big hit with the staff. Travel Hammocks seem to be showing up on every trip we take, even when there is little hope of a place to hang them. Hmmm....wondering if Sonny got a chance to try out the hammock.

So, as long as the sunny weather persists here in the Pacific Northwest, we'll be out there soaking it up.
