Exped Cloudburst 25

The Exped Cloudburst 25 is based on their 25 litre Fold Dry Bag, so it's lightweight, only 300g, and 100% waterproof.The back has been stiffened with flexible U shaped reinforcement that allows the bag to stand upright when partially loaded and not to sag off your back when in use.

The arm straps are lightweight double layer mesh which is breathable and comfortable. There is an adjustable sternum strap and waist belt, both can be removed as required.. The front of the bag has an elasticated storage system that also doubles to compress the bag according to the contents. The top of the Drypack Pro 25 is Exped's standard stiffened roll top that is on all their drybags. Simply roll the top over 3 times and click the buckle for a watertight seal. Key clip inside Strong grab handle at rear.

Stu's Comment

The Exped Cloudburst 25 is not designed to be a large load bearing sack, it only weighs 300g, but is a fantastic sack for those moving fast with minimal gear. You don't need to use a rucksack liner so more weight is saved there. It makes an ideal summit bag for those on larger expeditions and also doubles as a dry bag in camp.

It's actually a good running sack (I use mine with a waist belt), maybe a bit over simple (no mesh or organiser pockets ) for mountain marathons but not many other bags come close in terms of weight and volume. It's an excellent commuter bag for the runner or cyclist who wants light weight. Possibly the most extraordinary thing about the Cloudburst is the price, so much bag for so little money.

Please Note: The Olive and Black images show the old logo, they will come with the new logo as per the other images.

Bought this pack to take on holiday and use as a day/ beech rucksack. Exceeded all expectations waterproof , comfortable and kept the wet things together after a day on beech. Only thing to watch is the Velcro tabs on the straps can snag garments so beware! Love Facewest , quality equipment and great service.

Awesome small backpack or summit/daypack for allweather conditions since it's waterproof :) I ordered the red one but the Lime version looks stunningly nice also (better in real life than in the photos) so you have a good variety of vivid colours to choose from which will help even when loosing it in the snow or in the outdoors :P

The bag packs up relatively small but the more important thing is that it's very lightweight so if you are looking for a backpack which is similar to the Sea to Summit UltraSil series but in my opinion superior in design and build quality the you just found it ;)

Very light and easy to pack in baggage when flying. Capacious and very easy to close. Its waterproof fabric obviates the need for a liner. Useful, tight webbing allows easy accessible carriage of additional layers of clothing which are thus easy to slip on or off. Waist and chest straps make it very comfortable to wear. A secure external pocket (or two) for water bottles would have made it perfect.

Reviewer: Harsharn, Manchester  

I purchased this specifically to act as a lightweight day pack on a trekking trip to Iceland. I was looking for something light (280g confirmed) and robust. The shoulder straps are wide enough and slightly padded unlike competitors, and it also has a padded back panel which aids comfort. I used it daily over several days and in wet weather and am glad to report that despite exceeding it's payload, a large digital camera, 2 big lenses, waterproofs, water, food etc some 5-6kg, it felt completely comfortable. The taped seems inspire confidence, the bungee system on the back of the pack allows you to place items which you regularly access, such as a jacket, or even a small tripod in my case. Having inspected the pack upon my return its still looks pretty much as new.

It also fits perfectly in the overhead aircraft cabins. I would go so far as to say it's one of the best purchases i've made this year.

This is my second Exped Cloudburst 25. The first I tried for myself and this for my husband. We are great fans of Exped as they are tough with nothing fancy to get in the way. We wanted a very light but completely waterproof bag for the summer that is comfortable. If you just have a jumper and some water and lunch then the bag sits snug and small but when you need to put your coat into it it just expands. This has a tremendous capacity but you just pull the pull-cord to make it tight and tidy. Nice fold over top typical of Exped. And as per their bigger bags, this sits tight and high on your back so you don't get shoulder or neck ache, which I have with other bags that are designed to sit away from the back to let air flow. If you want a really light, no fuss, waterproof, durable and capacious bag that's so comfortable you forget your wearing it then can't go wrong with this bag.

Reviewer: Hugh , Sedbergh Cumbria  

This light compact sack is an ideal everyday pack to keep a few things and valuables in and to be confident that everything will stay perfectly dry. The sack is comfortable when worn walking, cycling or running. Despite its low weight it has several features of heavier sacks - for example - easily adjustable chest and waist straps and back reinforcements to keep the sack firm on the back. It is essentially a really good quality Exped dry bag made into a small back pack.

Reviewer: Dr G , Leeds  

I'm not a newcomer to Exped having been very pleased with their range of Synmats as well as the waterproof, zip bags as well as some rucksack liners, so I thought I'd take the plunge with this highly rated waterproof rucksack. I chose it for cycling, specifically as it seemed a no-brainer to have a lightweight pack which didn't need either a yellow cover or a something waterproof to go over it if it rained. True - you can't put that much in it (although as it doesn't have any pockets, whether internal or external), the 25 litre interior is actually pretty spacious. Naturally you have to take care with how you put stuff to the rear so it doesn't jab into your back but I personally haven't found this an issue. I like that they've not "padded out" the back for comfort as this would make it more bulky as well as heavier - not its purpose. It seems waterproof (tested only in showery conditions rather than a downpour yet) & I'm very happy with it. Others have commented that this is the Mark 2 version & that its predecessor was superior - well, since I don't know any different, it seems fine to me. Finally, the hooks & elastic on the rear face of the sack are genius, giving multiple ways to stash a helmet or soggy top etc.

A little excellent bag used this to cycle the coast to coast, and done the job, all kit had to be light weight as had no support vehicle helmet was secure on the back and was easy to access, this is a good bag to pack some water proofs n a fleece some bait and go out n about defo 5/5 my next venture is the coast and castles I will be using it again

Reviewer: Silver , Southfields  

Just got back from doing the three peaks challenge using this bag. It carried small loads up each peak and was perfect for the job. Other day sacks seemed over kill in comparison and because they were not waterproof they were carrying waterproofing on top of that.

Its light, comfortable (with light loads) and really waterproof. Shoulder and waist strap strike the right balance between light enough with just enough contact. waist strap keeps it in place more than transferring any weight.

For the money really impressed.
