Aqua Light Series: Light and waterproof bicycle bags

A trio for any occasion

With the new Aqua Light series for summer 2019, VAUDE has designed the perfect panniers for weight-optimized bike travel and bikepacking. Robust, perfectly waterproof with HF welded seams, climate-neutral and environmentally friendly manufacturing, and last but not least, Made in Germany.

In the search for waterproof saddle bags, a lot of cyclists are put off by how heavy and rigid they can be. The VAUDE Aqua Light Box, the Aqua Light Front and the Aqua Light Back panniers have got this problem covered.

Always flexible with the Aqua Light series

The new VAUDE Aqua Light bag series is the perfect solution for those who previously found bags made of tarpaulin material too heavy and bulky. Not only do they weigh significantly less than conventional models, they are also much more versatile.

In contrast to many other handlebar bags that have cumbersome attachment mechanisms that just add to the weight, the Power Strap attachment of the Aqua Light Box handlebar bag is extremely lightweight, easy to attach and just as easy to take back off. The bag itself offers space for everything you need on the go without adding to the confusion with too many bells and whistles.

Minimalistic, sustainable and technical

The Aqua Light Front and the Aqua Light Back have been paired down to the basics – and both are optimized for the challenges of daily use for outdoor recreation. This has two big advantages: weight reduction and user-friendliness. Aqua Light Front and Aqua Light Back have an organizer on the inside of the hardback plate. If the bags are not completely full, they can be compressed quickly and easily with the outer drawstring, which can also be used to attach other objects such as a sleeping pad or wet laundry.

VAUDE places great emphasis on sustainability – and this goes for the Aqua Light series as well. All three bags feature PVC-free and climate-neutral manufacturing at the VAUDE headquarters in southern Germany under the strict Green Shape criteria. The result of our in-house development and production are short delivery routes and compliance with the strictest quality specifications.

Perfect for bikepacking and commuting

Reduced to the essentials, Aqua Light Box, Aqua Light Front and Aqua Light Back are just as suitable for extended bikepacking trips as for the daily commute. All three bags feature fast and easy access thanks to their user-friendly roll closure.

Full flexibility

Whether you use all three bags at once or just one at a time, the pack volume of each can be adjusted quickly and easily to meet your current needs. As the ideal solution for even more storage space on your bike, the bikepacking bags from VAUDE (Trailfront, Trailsaddle, Trailframe) blend design and functionality perfectly.
