Children's backpacks Skovi, Puck, Hylax & more with recycled materials

Colorful free time friends

Kids have their own ideas and requirements when it comes to outdoor gear. Especially when it comes to backpacks, kids want to have it just as good as their parents. This is exactly where the new VAUDE children's backpacks Skovi, Puck, Hylax, Ayla and Minnie score. Each has a design that's not only inspiring with its cheerful colors, but is also tailor made for children and above all, features eco-friendly production. Starting with the Summer 2021 Season, all VAUDE children's backpacks will be made of recycled materials.

Anyone who travels with children knows what it's like – the kids want to be just as well outfitted as mom or dad. Of course, they've got to have their own backpacks. And when your kids' gear is made from recycled materials, that's one more thing for parents to be happy about. This is the case with all VAUDE children's backpacks.

Revised bestseller for naturalists

Puck is a true classic. This diminutive forest spirit from Shakespeare's "Midsummer Night's Dream" is well known, and the model has also been a fixture in the VAUDE range for years. Puck's name may sound cute – but this children's backpack, available in 10 and 14 liter volumes, is as tough as nails when it comes to durability. Sophisticated details such as the easily removable seat mat and kid-friendly buckles and zips make it the perfect forest kindergarten and hiking companion for adventurous children. With a small magnifying glass, pint-sized explorers can scout to their heart's desire. The waterproof floor is also forgiving when the pack gets dropped into a puddle or put down in wet grass. Even a rain cover is included, which makes the Puck an outdoor companion that's up for any weather.

Skovi, on the other hand, is new to the VAUDE range and will be available as of the Summer 2021 Season. It's based on the design of its brother Puck, is just as comfortable and comes in fresh, cheerful colors. Available in 10, 15 and 19 liter capacities, this backpack has a spacious main compartment and features a robust, durable construction. The two smaller Skovis even have a magnifying glass on board, so that small explorers can observe nature in detail. Is a hut weekend or an overnight stay with friends part of the plan? The large Skovi 19 offers enough space for a wash bag, pajamas and a favorite toy.

Small backpacks for great adventures

Children also value comfort and looks – so the product developers at VAUDE have gone to great lengths to design the Hylax 15, combining a comfortable, ergonomic suspension system with practical features and a modern, daypack design. A spacious front compartment with zip opening offers space for things that need to be right at hand. This backpack can also grow with your child thanks to an adjustable chest strap. With a helmet attachment point and reflectors, the Hylax is also well prepared for cycling trips.

Ayla 6, Minnie 5 and Minnie 10 – the perfect trio for the smallest of adventurers. Ayla 6 and Minnie 5 use Easy Fit shoulder straps which, as you can guess, are very kid-friendly. The soft back padding is gentle on small backs and makes the trio the ideal choice for their first mini outdoor adventures. To make your nature excursions even more fun, Ayla 6 also comes with "Flocki", a small ball for play. But what's the difference between Ayla 6 and Minnie 5? Well, the Ayla has two practical mesh pockets on the front and is closed with a practical flap instead of a zip.

Outfitted like mom and dad

To keep your kids visible in low light conditions, all children's backpacks are outfitted with reflective elements. Small rain showers won't bother a VAUDE backpack – all models are made with eco-friendly, water repellent Eco Finish and manufactured without the use of fluorocarbons (PFC). All Pucks also come with an integrated rain cover that is quick at hand when needed. So you can explore nature, whatever the weather. (VAUDE offers a selection of appropriate rain wear as well).

Environmentally friendly manufacturing

All VAUDE children's backpacks are made of at least 50 % recycled polyester. The VAUDE Green Shape label stands for environmentally friendly, functional products made from sustainable, bluesign®-certified materials.
