Very lightweight pack designed for high intensity mountain activities such as mountain biking could also be used for trail running.
Double protection! This lightweight bike pack with 16 liters of carrying capacity protects your back and the environment. The eco-friendly manufactured material of this minimalist backpack consists of lightweight, siliconized 40D Rip-Stop while the outer mesh pockets consist of thin mesh material; even the shoulder straps, hipbelt and buckles were specifically designed to be extremely light in construction.
The outer multi-function drawcord system has a three-fold function: for compression, as a helmet holder and as additional attachment possibility, for a jacket, for example. The body-contact suspension system provides close-fitting carrying comfort on longer bike tours. You can stow an energy bar or gel in the shoulder strap pocket for a quick energy boost. With hydration system port and raincover in a pack sack. Green Shape is your VAUDE guarantee for eco-friendly products – made from sustainable materials and resource-conserving production.
Vaude's Uphill Rucksacks have a lot of room inside them for such lightweight packs, then you've also got external pockets and the compression cord for storing more things. Don't overload it however, as it is a very lightweight pack and it is not designed for very heavy loads.
You get a good quality elasticated pack cover with a loop for a light. It weighs 38g and is supplied loose in the pack so you don't have to cut it out like a lot of other packs do.
The Uphill packs are all certified Fair Wear Foundation goods, this means that you can be reassured you are choosing a pack that has been manufactured in an ethically sound, fair & supportive process.
