Exped's Expedition Rucksacks are high capacity, comfortable to carry, tough, weatherproof and yet among the lightest in class.
Exped says: Weatherproof backcountry heavy load carrier. High volume yet lightweight and weatherproof top-loader that can comfortably bear weights up to 35 kg. A waterproof lid pocket and other functional features make it the perfect expedition and winter adventure pack. Stepless torso length adjustment.
Exped's Expedition pack is remarkable. Its an expedition pack for carrying 35Kg (75lbs+) and yet it weighs only 2505 grams and is virtually waterproof. There's an extremely competent harness system (I hesitate to say comfortable when carrying monster loads - but the Exped will do it), easy to operate features and a closure system that doesn't rely on buckles.
So, where did the weight go? We certainly don't feel the harness has been compromised, so it comes down to using the right fabrics in the right places and keeping the features to those that matter.
Simple loops on the hipbelt are for carrying tools, two large side pockets on the pack are for the accessible stuff you need and the large lid has two pockets, one out and one inside.
Thats about it - there's a rolltop closure more commonly found on a drybag used to seal the main compartment before the protective lid descends to cover it - Exped have designed something special - if you need this kind of weight carrying capability then this would be a great choice.
