New additions to the Green Shape Core Collection Summer 2019
The Green Shape Core Collection — the heart of VAUDE's sustainable product development — is entering its second round in summer 2019. VAUDE began a new chapter in eco-friendly outdoor apparel with its thoroughly sustainable collection featuring innovative and exclusive developments in materials. This award-winning, versatile collection covers a broad range of outdoor activities and has been so successful that it is being expanded for the summer 2019 season. The new summer styles with high performance materials are designed for a variety of bike activities while the multiuse concept continues to play a central role.

In addition, all models in the Mountain Collection have earned the VAUDE Green Shape label which stands for environmentally friendly and socially fair production.
Skomer & company for pure and natural outdoor adventures
For many women, hiking is a simply something to enjoy; it’s not about "higher, faster, further" but about rest and relaxation. Hiking means taking time out from the hectic hustle and bustle that we have to face every day. Nature offers a chance to unwind and ‘log off’ for a while. Whether alone or with family and friends – good spirits are more important than how many kilometers you cover or checking off summits reached. If you’re the type that likes to stop and enjoy the flowers – especially in the midst of good company, you know that performance isn’t the whole story when it comes to your outdoor apparel. Sustainability and style are also important. That is why VAUDE has developed a hiking series for women that is specifically designed to meet these needs.
Trekking tents: A classic for 30 years — the Mark tent is redesigned
30 years ago VAUDE presented its first Mark tent with the patented wrap-around construction. Since that time, thousands of campers and trekkers have called it their home away from home. For the summer of 2019, the outdoor specialist from Lake Constance has once again revised its category of 4-season tents. Lightweight materials and a modern design, full weather protection, outstanding wind stability and an easy set up make this latest generation of Mark tents a veritable fortress for outdoor adventures — any season of the year.
