Exped has won an OutDoor Industry Award at the OutDoor show in Friedrichshafen, Germany. For the 3rd consecutive year, Exped has won an award at the OutDoor Show, this time for the new Lightning 45/60 packs in the lightweight backpack category.

"We are delighted to get this award in the pack category at Friedrichshafen" said Ted Steudel, director of sales for Exped LLC in North America. "Our pack line has been very well received by customers in Europe over the past few years and we're excited to be bringing the line to North America in 2013. After using the Lightning series prototypes last fall and winter we've been amazed at the solid load control the new T-Rex frame provides. Especially when you consider the total weight of the packs is about 1 kg or just over 2 lbs! These packs handle even heavy loads with ease!"

Lightning 45/60 will be available for women and men in March of 2013. Made of durable and lightweight Dyneema Gridstop fabric and featuring Exped's exclusive T-Rex single stave frame, these packs balance plenty of volume, weight reduction, freedom of movement, durability, back ventilation, and roll-top weather protection. Exped's hallmark innovation and clean design lines are immediately noticeable.

From 301 product entries , the awards jury delivered a total of 46 awards at this year's show.
