Green Shape Core Collection - the future of sustainable outdoor gear
At the heart of the new VAUDE Winter Collection 2018/19 is its Green Shape Core Collection: an authentically sustainable selection of gear for a wide variety of outdoor activities. VAUDE has developed innovative materials that are high performing and environmentally friendly, while at the same time offer solutions for global environmental challenges such as microplastics pollution. With them, VAUDE is presenting the most sustainable products in the industry, underscoring its pioneering position and demonstrating what the future holds for sustainably innovative outdoor gear.
Backpack Trail Spacer 8 - Knit that fits
The southern German outdoor specialist VAUDE is once again demonstrating innovative strength in the field of backpack technology with the lightweight Trail Spacer 8. For the first time, an innovative 3D-knit construction has been used for the back. A globally unparalleled manufacturing process was developed in cooperation with the textile university of Albstadt-Sigmaringen that offers a compact fit for outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking or trail running.
Green fleece for clean water
At the ISPO in Munich, VAUDE will be launching for the first time products made of a fleece fabric that feature a biodegradable, softly napped inner lining. As a pioneer in the field of sustainability, VAUDE has developed this fabric in collaboration with the Italian fabric supplier Pontetorto and will be the world’s first manufacturer to introduce it – in its Winter 18/19 Collection. The Miskanti Fleece Jacket, a high-stretch fleece for mountain sports, along with several models of the limited “Green Shape Core Collection” are all made with TENCEL® fleece. A good 40 years after the introduction of fleece fabrics to the outdoor market, VAUDE is now for the first time offering a solution to the problem of the shedding of microfibers during the washing process.
Insulated warmth for cold winter weather
VAUDE is introducing PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation Natural Blend — a new, soft hybrid insulation made from plant fibers — for an eco-friendly yet stylish addition to its collection. The products that feature this innovative layer are not only good looking on the outside; their inner qualities are also first-rate. This trailblazing insulation is making an exclusive debut in the VAUDE Winter Collection 2018/19.
Vorwärts ins Backcountry
Für die Wintersaison 2018/19 hat VAUDE die Bekleidung für abfahrtsorientierte Skitourengeher grundlegend überarbeitet und nochmals erweitert. Den Schutz vor den Elementen und eine technisch aufwendige Konstruktion zeigt die Back Bowl Serie in einem lässigen und sehr geländegängigen Ski-Outfit. Alle Modelle tragen das VAUDE Green Shape Label für eine umweltfreundliche und sozial faire Herstellung. Die Membran und die wasserabweisende DWR-Ausrüstung ist bei der gesamten Bekleidungskollektion von VAUDE 100 % PFC-frei.
Skarvan Trekking Backpacks: Heavy duty backpacks for wilderness trekking
The Scottish Highlands, the Kerry Way in Ireland or the expansive Fjäll region of Scandinavia provide plenty of space for solitude and long-distance wilderness tours. You can hike here for days without seeing a cabin or other trace of civilization along the way, so you’ll have to take everything you’ll need with you and, of course, a pack that can hold it all – such as the Skarvan backpack from VAUDE.
Skarvan Trekking Series: ready to trek, from head to toe
Four seasons in one day – that’s what they say about the weather in Ireland. And if you’re heading out for more than one, you’d better be well equipped for this meteorological extravaganza. The Skarvan Series from VAUDE is an entire apparel concept that will have you prepared for every change in the weather so you can stay focused on experiencing impressive natural spectacles.
VAUDE Outdoor Gear in Green Shape: Eco Alpine Lifestyle
On the path of sustainability – with this motto, the mountain sports and cycling outfitter VAUDE, wishes to encourage athletes to take care of their environment. Those who wish to pursue a path of sustainability while enjoying the great outdoors can find many ways to reduce their ecological footprints while doing so. VAUDE provides gear with its own in-house Green Shape Label that does just this, proving just how sustainable functional apparel can be. Starting this Spring/Summer 2018 season, almost the entire VAUDE Apparel collection bears the Green Shape Label and the textile fabrics used for it are completely PFC-free, meaning that no harmful fluorocarbon compounds were used in the manufacturing.
Footwear: Skarvan trekking shoes
With the completely redesigned Summer 2018 Shoe Collection, the outdoor specialist VAUDE is both taking a big step forward while also reducing the environmental footprint of its products. With a uniform design language, sustainable materials and innovative technologies such as a seamless knit upper construction, the VAUDE Shoe Collection knows where it’s going: forward to nature!
Sleeping pads: extremely comfortable new models
Even outdoors, the proverb holds true: as you make your bed, so must you lie on it. For its newest insulation pads, VAUDE has used not only a highly technical 3D design, but has also set new standards in terms of comfort for camping, trekking and mountain adventures.
Sleeping bags: flexible, high performance synthetic fill sleeping bags
With the Säntis and Gamplüt, VAUDE is launching two innovative and highly flexible synthetic fill bags for the Summer Season 2018. The Säntis offers unparalleled freedom of movement with high-stretch zones while the Gamplüt sets new standards in versatility. Thanks to eco-friendly production meeting the Green Shape standards, a healthy night’s sleep is guaranteed.
Back Bowl Series Freetouring Apparel
In accordance with the motto "Earn your turn", the Back Bowl series will be going on a discover journey into the wintery backcountry. Full protection against the elements, versatile and technical construction as well as fresh style factor has been taken into account in this all-terrain series.
VAUDE presents the first PrimaLoft® Jeans
VAUDE is ready to present a special highlight in their trousers department. In the Urban Life Collection Winter 17-18, VAUDE is using an exclusive new material from PrimaLoft® for all of its jeans – a functional blend of cotton and siliconized polyester with a bit of elastane. This material promises a conquest of the comfort zone in terms of stretch and drying time.
Rienza knit-fleece with eco-friendly dye process
If you want to engage in sustainable environmental protection, you have to think about cycles. When it comes to functional outdoor clothing, this means keeping an eye on the entire process. Environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes are in demand in the textile industry, but they are not yet widespread in Asian textile factories. The sustainability pioneer VAUDE is now using a particularly resource-conserving dye process for its Rienza fleece jackets. A wearable environmental understatement for eco-pioneers who enjoy forging new ground.
Roccia Primasoft Hoody: Hybrid Trekking Jacket with PrimaLoft® Insulation
As most outdoor enthusiasts know, the best way to head out into nature is on foot – and not by car. Even in winter, exploring hill and dale are not a problem when you have the right gear. In terms of insulation, the magic word is "hybrid" for optimal microclimate comfort. VAUDE spells it out clearly in the new Roccia Primasoft Hoody that puts premium PrimaLoft® insulation to work, and even comes with an environmental bonus to boot. So, what are you waiting for? Head for the hills and listen to the call of the wild!
Shuksan 3L Jacket & Hybrid Pants with Ceplex Green Membrane
At VAUDE, a firm commitment to environmental protection has been a leitmotif of sustainable innovation for many years. These southern Germans have now added a surprising ecological development in their in-house Ceplex membrane by including recycled and biobased components. Ceplex Green is used in the technical, alpine-oriented Shuksan apparel line that wows with windproof, waterproof and eco-friendly performance. VAUDE has also completely eliminated the use of harmful fluorocarbons in its membrane and water-repellent finishes.
Footwear: Urban winter shoes with felt and Terra Care® leather
Kiruna, the northernmost city in Sweden, serves not only as the namesake for the new VAUDE winter footwear series. Weather-wise, there are also strong leanings toward the Scandinavian winter. With insulating felt materials, premium TerraCare® eco-leather and thermal PrimaLoft® linings, UBN Kiruna Mid boots defy winter while sporting compelling eco-friendliness as well.
