100 years ago the first skiers could be found barreling down the slopes in grandma's knitted wool sweater. Today, knitwear is a machine-made, high-tech product. In the VAUDE Larice LesSeam Jacket, Comfort Mapping and the sophisticated, seamless circular knitting process brings more flexibility to your tour and is the first choice for performance-minded ski tourers. The jacket – and the matching vest – also scores high with warm PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation Eco padding on the chest for extra warmth when carving down slopes.
Fiat Lux – Let there be light! With OSRAM LED-ready Lighting, VAUDE provides genuine enlightenment for modern lifestyles. In cooperation with the long-established German lighting pioneer OSRAM, a pioneering illumination system was developed for the industry that ensures greater active visibility and safety for a modern (outdoor) lifestyle. It can be used in several VAUDE backpacks and bags and is the perfect complement to StVO-compliant bicycle lights or headlamps.
Closing the loop. For the first time, a water and windproof polyester membrane made of post-consumer recycled materials, such as used PET bottles, is being applied in VAUDE clothing. The Ceplex Green membrane in the current version of the Miskanti Softshell Jacket has opened up a new chapter in sustainable weather protection.
In its Winter 19/20 collection, VAUDE is presenting two new products made from the world's first fleece fabric with biodegradable fiber on the napped inner surface. With the Miskanti fleece for hikers and the sportier Shuksan fleece, an ecological textile innovation has gone into series production, offering a solution to the problem of microplastics that are shed during the washing process – a good 40 years after the introduction of fleece fabrics in the outdoor market.
In 2019, VAUDE is taking a lifecycle approach to down clothing as well and is opening a new chapter: For the first time GRS-certified recycled down is being used in VAUDE apparel – and this goes for all its down jackets. In the latest version of the VAUDE Kabru Hooded Jacket, the shell is even made of recycled polyamide, making it the first fully recycled down jacket. Heat recovery also works with textiles.
"Back Bowl" calls to mind deep powdery snow, pristine slopes and the fascination of freeriding – just what the Back Bowl 22 and the Back Bowl 30 were designed for. These two freeride backpacks not only offer excellent performance in powder, but also impress with carefully designed details, such as a practical opening at the back.
With its Mineo line, VAUDE is launching a fashionable apparel series whose urban, stylish looks strike a cord with the most discerning. Not only does it score high in the urban jungle, but the recycled materials and environmentally-friendly production takes a stand for sustainability as well.
The VAUDE Kids Snow Cup series provides more fun in the snow! Six different products – from snow overalls to mittens – ensure best possible comfort and reliable function for your pint-sized progeny in the cold, winter season.
In the autumn/winter season, VAUDE is expanding its range of products already presented in the 2019 Summer Collection and is increasingly focusing on seam-reduced knitting technology for performance-oriented cyclists. These products are manufactured using a circular-knit process and they not only offer outstanding wearing comfort, but also conserve resources and are eco-friendly thanks to extremely low waste and the use of recycled materials.
The VAUDE Trailpack combines the best of both worlds: a comfortable suspension system with a removable, waterproof packsack. And it can be used for a wide range of activities: The Trailpack earns high points when it comes to bike packing, everyday cycling and other outdoor adventures.
