For short after-work tours: a minimalistic backpack for shorter ski tours during which every gram counts. This extremely lightweight ski tour backpack weighs less than 450 g. Made from lightweight siliconized 40D rip-stop, with robust material at the base and sides. The shape has intentionally been kept slim to ensure an unrestricted range of motion. Featuring a Synergy Mold Light contact back with an individually adjustable MSP back panel for a stable fit.
The pocket on the lightweight, well-ventilated shoulder straps is perfect for storing muesli bars, and if it gets too hot for your gloves or hat during rapid ascents, these can simply be attached to the shoulder straps. To keep your skis compact and close to the body during carrying sections, the diagonal ski attachment can also be adjusted while wearing the pack. The innovative cord system enables effective compression of the backpack – also while hiking.
Use the gear loops to attach your helmet, ice pick and ski poles to the outside of the backpack. In the main compartment is an easy-access pocket for a shovel and probe. An additional compartment accessible from the outside offers space for ski skins or wet clothes, and your ski goggles or smartphone can be stored in an extra compartment.
Reflective elements on the backpack improve visibility during piste tours in the dark. The Vaude Green Shape label stands for environmentally friendly, functional products made from sustainable materials.
Vaude products with Eco Finish are environmentally friendly and water-repellent without fluorocarbons (PFC). PFC belong to a group of chemical compounds that are used in many outdoor products to impregnate the outer fabric. They have been criticised for not being degradable, accumulating in the body and being suspected of being harmful to health. Vaude has a clear commitment not to use PFC at all.
Fair Wear Foundation
Vaude is committed to good working conditions and fair wages for all and is a member of the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF). In this way, Vaude undertakes to continuously improve working conditions in all production facilities. These are regularly checked. VAUDE has achieved the highest status as an FWF member with the Leader Status.
Green Shape is the VAUDE seal of approval for products that are manufactured in a particularly environmentally friendly manner. This includes the complete production cycle from development and production to maintenance and usability after use. The criteria for this are strict. The products must consist either of at least 90 percent organically grown cotton, recycled materials or the Tencel wood fibre. Furthermore, they must have been dyed with the environmentally friendly dyeing process VAUDE eColour or meet the world's strictest environmental textile standard Bluesign. VAUDE's goal is the best for man and nature.
The Ultralight Icon distinguishes Vaude products that are among the lightest in their class on the market. The low weight is achieved by the use of extremely light materials and the deliberate reduction to the essential features.
