Laser focused on the essentials – that's the Rupal Light 28 backpack. Features include a rope attachment point, loops for two ice tools or trekking poles and compression straps. The sleek design of the lightweight alpine backpack and our Ergoshape FoM (Freedom of Movement) shoulder straps ensure maximum freedom of movement while climbing: two individually adjustable and detachable sternum straps make it possible to pull the straps far inward when needed, giving your shoulder joints even more room to move. In addition, the snow-repellent back is adaptable – the weight of the Rupal Light 28 can be reduced even more thanks to removable aluminum struts. The lightly padded and removable hip belt keeps the load close to your center of gravity either way. The pack's cover makes it easy to open or close the main compartment with just one hand. Other features: an inner hydration bladder compartment, a practical zip pocket for topo maps, phone & more outside on the back. The lightweight alpine backpack is the perfect companion for fast and sporty climbing and mountain tours where every gram counts. The VAUDE Green Shape label stands for environmentally-friendly, functional products made from sustainable and bluesign® certified materials.
