Product Description

Trail Spacer 28 - Lightweight backpack

Innovative, spacious backpack for speed hiking

  • Spacerknit back with vest-like suspension system
  • generous stretch outer pockets
  • offset for climate neutrality; eco-friendly, sustainable production
Fits perfectly – the Trail Spacer 28 sports backpack for motion-intensive hiking trips in the mountains! Thanks to the vest-like suspension system made from a comfortable and extremely durable knitted material, the pack has a comfortable, close fit on your back. At the same time, a special, seamless construction provides ventilation for your back ensuring longer endurance. Spacious, easy-to-reach stretch pockets keep drinks, power bars and sunscreen always close at hand. Poles can be attached either at the front or easily accessible between the pack and the shoulder straps for quick-access. A volume of 28 l offers plenty of space for gear and a change of clothes which are easily accessible thanks to the user-friendly quick release closure. Whichever way you attach your gear, compression cords will secure the load compactly and offer good flexibility for packing. The backpack's primary material is exceptionally resilient and was produced using a mass balance process sourced from end-of-life tires and other recyclables. The innovative production of the seamless knit material also cuts down on material waste in the production process. All in all, the Trail Spacer 28 is the ideal backpack for speed hikers and environmentally conscious mountain sports enthusiasts who like to travel fast and are looking for a pack to do the job right. The VAUDE Green Shape label stands for environmentally-friendly, functional products made from sustainable and bluesign® certified materials. In addition, this product is climate neutral. We’ve analyzed and systematically reduced all emissions arising from materials, manufacturing, and shipping. Emissions that are currently unavoidable were fully offset by the independent non-profit organization myclimate.

This protects you from the rain and keeps the planet clean. Regular reapplication is necessary for permanent waterproofing and stain resistance.

Ricinus oil/castor oil – biobased synthetic for climate protection
Ricinus oil/castor oil – biobased synthetic for climate protection

Biobased plastic made from castor oil. The robust castor plant grows without artificial irrigation in poor soil that is unsuitable for growing food. Castor oil pressed from the beans of the plant is used to produce fiber for your VAUDE apparel and plastic components such as zips, buckles and hooks. The advantage: it has the same properties as conventional fiber made from crude oil – but is more climate-friendly because castor oil is a renewable resource that contributes to climate protection.

• biobased synthetic made from castor oil
• renewable raw material conserves fossil resources
• contributes to CO2 reduction and climate protection
