Exped has won two OutDoor Industry Awards at the OutDoor show in Friedrichshafen, Germany. For the second consecutive year, Exped has won a gold award, this time for its patent pending Ergo Hammock Combi, the first hammock design that allows the occupant to sleep in a comfortable horizontal position. Exped received another award for the new DownMat UL 7, an ultralight version of the popular Exped DownMat.
â€œTo receive a gold award again this year is a great honorâ€ said Kaj Bune, director of marketing for Exped LLC in North America. â€œThe Ergo Hammock Combi solves the biggest challenge for most folks when it comes to sleeping in a hammock – achieving a horizontal sleep position. Add to that its integrated slot for a sleeping mat, zippered mosquito net and full coverage tarp and this hammock is a complete shelter. And to win a second award for the DownMat UL 7 is great as well. This mat will bring the amazing warmth of the DownMat design to our customers looking to reduce pack weight while retaining as much heat as possible.â€
From 301 entries , the awards jury delivered a total of 46 awards, of which 11 were Gold for outstanding design and innovation achievement. Exped won gold in the camping equipment category.
