Product description

  • comfortable carrying system
  • volume can be expanded by 4 l via zip
  • textile material made primarily from recycled polyester
The 18 l Elope backpack is made primarily from recycled polyester and is based on our classic Wizard. The big difference: The Elope pack belongs to the VAUDE closed loop concept. It's made almost entirely from PET polyester; parts made from other materials can be removed. It features details aligned with the circular economy, has a material-efficient cut, and is rugged and easily repairable. For the first time, VAUDE is using a material coating made of PET polyester. Instead of using material with a spandex content, we've taken another direction, with the side pockets for example. If you'd rather do without the sternum strap or hipbelt, it's easy to detach. Need sometimes more than 18 l volume? Open the zip and you've got 4 l of additional storage space. Trekking poles and a safety light can be attached to the outside of the backpack. The VAUDE Green Shape label stands for environmentally-friendly, functional products made from sustainable and bluesign® certified materials.
