Filed under:

Competitions, News,

What could you do with £1000 of the latest lightweight backpacking gear? We are looking for someone who has the ideas and ambition to take on a big outdoor adventure – and to write about it for Trek & Mountain magazine – and in return you will receive £1000 worth of Exped kit to make your adventure possible. The complete set-up we have on offer incredibly weighs less than 3kg yet offers all the protection and comfort you need. Could you be the EXPED Adventurer 2020? Read on to find out…

For a chance of becoming the Exped Adventurer 2020 we’d like you to send us a few details about your project and briefly explain how the kit on offer will make the expedition possible. Perhaps you want to plan a series of weekends bagging Munros, or you have ambitions to spend months traversing the Pyrenees from coast to coast? Maybe you’d like to take on one of the UK’s national trails, or have a desire to go off-grid overseas in search of true wilderness adventure. Whatever your idea is, we want to hear about it!

The second crucial aspect of your entry is that you are willing and able to write a report of your expedition or adventure for Trek & Mountain and will share photos and anecdotes from your activities on your (and our) social media accounts.

The following set-up, weighing less than 3kg is up for grabs!

Mira II HL tent
The Mira II HL offers a great combination of space, comfort and lightweight comfort for two. With a free-standing design, its ridge pole increases interior space for sitting, and the canopy design combines large fine mesh panels with solid fabric walls. It has two vestibules, one for each door, and weighs just 1.5kg (1.3kg trail weight).

Ultralight Sleeping Bag -5
Exped’s lightest 3-season sleeping bag is ideal for fast and light adventures in a wide range of temperatures. Its 520g of premium 800+ RDS certified goose down gives impressive warmth-to-weight, and its 3-dimensional anatomically-shaped footbox improves insulation and keeps feet nice and cosy. The bag comes with a Fold-Drybag stuffsack and storage bag.

SynMat UL
This ultralight and super-compact mat offers both warmth and comfort. It gives great comfort, and has a GripSkin honeycomb-pattern anti-slip coating. The included Schnozzel Pumpbag allows you to inflate the mat instantly, and also doubles as a compression stuffsack.
