Product Description

Rupal Light 28 - Lightweight backpack
Lightweight, minimalistic alpine backpack for sporty mountain tours
  • exceptionally comfortable thanks to its low weight and trail-running inspired shoulder straps
  • innovative, user-friendly pack closure
  • PFC-free waterproofing, environmentally-friendly manufacturing
The lightweight: Minimalist alpine backpack for mountain tours where every gram counts. It has a narrow profile that allows you to move freely. The ergonomic trail running-inspired shoulder straps provide superior freedom of movement in the shoulder area. We pared down any unnecessary technical features in favor of a low weight and minimalist appearance. Features are aligned with the "fast and light" category: A light hip belt, the back is adjustable and even more weight can be saved by removable aluminum stays. It’s also hydration system compatible. The cover for the main compartment also serves as a rope holder. Of course, it’s easy to compress the pack down quite small. Trekking poles or an ice pick can be attached at the front. In addition, other gear can be attached to the daisy chain. The backpack was manufactured in accordance with the strict, eco-friendly bluesign® criteria. The VAUDE Green Shape label stands for environmentally-friendly, functional products made from sustainable materials.

Eco Finish – environmentally friendly water and stain resistant finish
Eco Finish – environmentally friendly water and stain resistant finish

This water and stain resistant finish is applied to the outer fabric of your product so that water pearls up and runs right off – without the use of environmentally harmful fluorocarbons (PFCs). This protects you from the rain and keeps the planet clean. Regular reapplication is necessary for permanent waterproofing and stain resistance.

• environmentally friendly water repellency and stain resistance
• optimal protection from rain and moisture
• no use of environmentally harmful fluorocarbons (PFC)
