Our vision

EXPED – Refined Gear for Adventure - explore the wild world. Discover its mysteries, climb its peaks, roam its forests and set out on its waters. Adventure awaits!


EXPED enables the maximum outdoor experience with minimal means. Whether you're in the mountains, traveling in foreign lands or wandering through a nearby forest, EXPED gear protects you, warms you, and sets you free. We’ve removed the unnecessary frills (ohne schnickschnack) and refined each component. 

EXPED products embody the best of Swiss design and a commitment to the highest quality. From the beginning, we have tinkered, tested and innovated to build gear that is unique, durable and thoughtfully created - and we’ve repeatedly turned outdoor gear conventions upside down.

The EXPED story began with the personal outdoor experiences of Heidi and Andi Brun. In 1981, the Swiss adventurers lived in the northern Canadian wilderness for nine months, spending the long winter in a log cabin built with their own hands. Hunting, fishing and gathering plants allowed them to subsist directly from, and in balance with, nature. Improvising in their everyday life with minimal resources, and the freedom this approach allowed, inspired them to get involved in the development of functional outdoor gear. The EXPED brand is the direct result of this dream-come-true adventure. 

In order to minimize EXPED’s environmental impact, we carefully evaluate materials and resources to find the ideal balance between sustainability and performance. We favor high-quality components and environmentally sound production processes. This helps ensure that our gear is durable, long-lasting and resource-efficient. And instead of replacing well-used gear, we encourage its repair in our workshops. 

Our production facilities, as well as our vendors, are long-term partners. And we are proud to equip outdoor enthusiasts for their lifetime of adventures.
