Performance meets ecology: Vaude's high-tech ski touring backpack made from bluesign certified primary materials is now available as a compact 20 liter version. Skis can be attached diagonally and at the front – the front attachment loops are also great for snowboards or snowshoes. The large exterior safety compartment is quickly accessible thanks to an easy-glide zip, and offers space for a shovel and probe. Ski poles or ice axe can be attached to the easy-to-use device holder. Enough storage space for a hydration bladder, provisions, clothing and other gear is found in the main compartment, which can be further opened using the long zip. With a padded compartment for goggles, a helmet holder and a quick access pocket for cell phone or digital camera on the shoulder strap. The contact back ensures a stable, body-hugging fit. The rather narrow yet comfortable hipbelt offers not only good stability; it can also be worn with a harness for ski mountaineering, abseiling and glacier tours. An ideal backpack with sufficient volume for shorter ski tours, freeriding and alpine snowshoeing.
