Differences between Expedition and Expedition Elite?

Hi All,

New here. I just ordered an Expedition on closeout, and wondered what the differences are between the Expedition and Expedition Elite models. I looked through the forums but couldn't find anything on how they differ...

Hi Tim,

I got Elite and it comes with a dropstich floor.
I believe this is the only difference but it's worth it.
It is not of benefit to have it if you want to use backbone. In that case the dropstich floor isn't recommend as it is way harder and will push too much on the backbone and outside shell making it prone to damage.
