Product description

  • spacerknit back with vest-like suspension system
  • generous stretch exterior pockets
  • environmentally friendly production thanks to an innovative end-of-life tire recycling program using a mass balance process
A perfect companion for long, fast-paced tours – this lightweight multi-sport backpack offers maximum comfort and perfect support thanks to the 3D molded back panel; with 18 liters of volume, there's plenty of space for speed hikers, mountain bikers, cross-country skiers and athletic hikers. Made from environmentally friendly recycled yarn, the 3D knit construction is unique worldwide – it takes into account different pressure zones at your back for even pressure distribution and ventilation. The Trail Spacer 18 has a hydration bladder attachment and enough storage space for day trips. The shoulder straps have compartments with space for gels, power bars, your phone, etc. Two stretch pockets at the sides offer additional space. A wet rain jacket and first aid kit can be stowed in the front pocket. You can access the pole holder and compression straps even when you're wearing the pack. The polyamide recycled main material was made using a certified mass balance process sourced from end-of-life tires and other recyclables. This reduces CO2 emissions by up to 60%. Because the suspension system is knit to form, it can be produced without remnant materials. The VAUDE Green Shape label stands for environmentally-friendly, functional products made from sustainable and bluesign® certified materials. Note: Always wash the backpack by hand.
