Product Description

Asymmetric 42+8 NEW trekking backpack

Versatile trekking backpack for hut-hopping tours, alpine trekking and long-distance trails

  • optimal weight distribution
  • adjustable, back-friendly suspension system
  • offset for climate neutrality; primarily made from recycled materials
Alpine trekking, hut hopping tours, long-distance trails and backpacking – a trekking backpack for whatever you've got planned! A volume of 42 liters paired with comfortable carrying makes it a beloved companion. Even on long tours, the Tergolight Comfort Space suspension system ensures a comfortable ride. The back length and load positioning straps can be adjusted to your torso size. It's also exceptionally back-friendly – a recess at the lower back takes the stress off the sacroiliac joint. The adjustable Ergoshape shoulder straps give your arms plenty of freedom of movement and distribute the load optimally, as does the comfortably padded hip belt. The spacious main compartment of the Asymmetric 42+8 can be accessed from the top and front – no more rummaging around for your stuff. The stretchy front compartment has enough space for the things you need right at hand when you're on the go. And you can even dry your wet clothing here too thanks to its optimized ventilation. You can access your water bottle, camera or a protein bar without having to take off the pack in the side stretch pockets. The backpack also performs well on alpine tours – you can attach an ice axe or trekking poles to the gear loop and your crampons to the daisy chain. Two compression straps on each side and one under the lid compress the load and there's a replacement buckle on the upper strap if you ever need one along the way. The lid with inner compartment creates up to 8 liters of additional volume. The eco-friendly trekking backpack is primarily made from recycled materials. The VAUDE Green Shape label stands for environmentally-friendly, functional products made from bluesign® certified, sustainable materials.
