Vaude puts sustainability first in new pack range

The Bracket backpack has an ergonomically constructed back panel, which offers enhanced pack stability and gives riders improved freedom of movement. A wide hip belt provides extra stability and also works as compression strap. All five models sport the Vaude Green Shape Label, which ensures that they are eco-friendly and functional products made from sustainable materials.

Four models are available in ten, 16, 22 and 28 litres, and one women’s model of 16 litres. The final and largest model – the Bracket Xalps 28 – is designed for enduro riders and mountain bikers who undertake longer routes such as a multi-day trans-alpine tour. All five models feature the newly developed, slightly arched Ergonomic Movement Panel back. This stabilizes the carrying load and increases the pack’s overall stability. The lightweight construction allows for forward movement as well as rotational movement in the upper torso area.

The EMP back panel combined with the Vent Active Bike full body-contact suspension system provides close fitting and firm pack stability. An airflow tunnel between the two back padding segments, as well as die-cut padding, provides optimal ventilation close to the body. The wings of the wide hip belt are attached to the front edges of the pack and are then wrapped around to close tightly in front with a Velcro closure. The hip belt is made from stretch material and works as an additional compression strap, keeping the point of gravity close and low to the rider’s back. All Bracket packs feature well-organised, thoughtfully placed pockets and compartments, a removable tool compartment, helmet holder, integrated rain cover as well as reflective elements.

Behind the in-house Green Shape Label is a comprehensive catalogue of criteria that must be met if a product is to bear this label. All primary materials used in the Bracket backpacks are certified in accordance with the bluesign system. This monitors the environmentally friendly and resource-conserving manufacturing of the materials.
