Vaude Brenta 35 (2014)

£90.00

The Vaude Brenta 35 narrowly missed out being featured in the top eight in our test. It is a well-featured 35-litre rucksack with two hip pockets, a floating back system that adjusts, a rain cover, two wand pockets, a clipped webbing pocket on the front that is ideal for a jacket, a valuables pocket under the lid and the usual ...

Vaude Triset 35+8 (2014)

£77.00

This colossal pack swallows anything: jacket after fleece after drybag went flying in with no problem, even before we’d expanded the extra side storage areas and shoved in two more jackets. The lid pocket is equally cavernous. Yet while it feels like a sack in the loading, when worn it disperses the weight with ease and feels incredibly secure and ...

Vaude Brenta 30 (2012)

£85.00

The Vaude Brenta 30 has an Aeroflex back system, which holds the pack away from the wearer to increase airflow and thereby reduce that horrible clammy feeling. But what’s particularly interesting is that the back system can be adjusted to increase the curvature of the pack, thus increasing the airflow, or decrease the curvature of the back to reduce airflow ...

Vaude Brenta 35 (2011)

£80.00

The adjustable back system has to be the biggest draw for this pack, being one of the simplest to adjust and allowing you to customise the fit. The real benefit comes from the ability to customise the amount of curve in the suspended mesh back system. Two small tabs are all it takes and so the pack can be adjusted ...

Vaude Jura 24

£60.00

The Vaude is a smart, traditional-looking pack, with a single-buckle lid closure and a cavernous main compartment. Kit separation is simple, with a large pocket on the lid and expansion pockets on each side – ideal for hats, gloves, snacks and water bottles. Features are kept to a minimum, although it has got two walking pole attachments and a rain ...

Vaude Astra Light 60 2011

£140.00

The Vaude Astra Light 60 – a new, lightweight version of the classic Astra 65, a frequent winner of Trail tests – is the only pack here that uses a zip for main access. It also sports a versatile adjustable back system for comfort, which does, however, make it the heaviest on test. DesignThis and the Berghaus Torridon 65 are ...

Vaude Triset 35+8

£65.00

A long, slim shape allows for great amounts of upper body movement. The Aeroflex mesh back system is airy and has a useful length adjustment. It’s a bit complicated to work out, but is excellent once you do, with a decent range of adjustment. The face fabric is rugged and hard-wearing, if heavier than some, but the lack of a ...

Vaude Triset 35+8 2010

£65.00

The Vaude Triset won ‘Best Value’ in the June 08 Trail test (it’s £10 more expensive now) and here it keeps its closest competitor – the Lowe Alpine AirZone – among the runners-up. If you’re looking for a pack with an airflow back system it would be worth checking out both of these models along with the Karrimor Airspace. This ...

Vaude Triset 25+4 rucksack

£50.00

This latest Triset incarnation features narrower shoulder straps and a web of shock cord on the front that’s ideal for carrying a wet waterproof. It’s a tall, slim pack, with excellent compression straps that will hold just about any size load securely. And as such it’s best-suited to more energetic walking or even scrambling. It offers incredibly good value for ...

Vaude Spline 40 2010

£130.00

It would be easy to think that the standard rucksack design is the best design for the job. But it is possible to come up with a radical rethink of how a rucksack operates. And that is exactly what the designers of the Vaude Spline have done. This sack boasts a wealth of innovative design concepts. But do they work? ...

Vaude Triset Ultralight 35 2009

£55.00

If you want to go lighter, try this slim-fitting rucksack with a well-vented back. At 775g the Vaude Triset Ultralight 35 is almost as light as the OMM Classic Marathon 32, but features a more complex back system and comfy mesh hipbelt that’s useful if you really can’t bear back sweat. The curved mesh back doesn’t eat into the main ...

VAUDE TRISET 35+8

£60.00

Review: The concave back system is cool and reasonably stable. The straps aren’t as luxurious as some, but are still comfy even when carrying large loads. This is a huge pack with as much as 43 litres of storage when stuffed to the gunnels. It’s tall and slim but has no bottom or side access, so can be tricky to ...

Vaude Astra 65

£110.00

The Vaude Astra 65 has won ‘Best Buy’ awards from Trail on several occasions and this backpacking rucksack still offers the essential features that have made it so popular. It is based around a main compartment with a zip-out divider to provide an upper and lower packing area. The lid is a floating design that gets a removable baffle connecting ...

Vaude Triset 35 + 8

£55.00

The Triset rucksack fitted well – with a very long back and lovely slim profile. It has modest padding, but is ample for its size. We found the Aeroflex concave back system cool and very stable. The tall, slim profile makes it best for rugged terrain or scrambling, but this, combined with its huge volume, makes it more fiddly to ...

Vaude Jolly Comfort

£115.00

I’ve been carrying Artie around in a Jolly Comfort since he was six months old and if I was in the market for a carrier this is definitely the one I’d opt for because A) it has a good specifications for UK walkers and B) it offers the kind of value for money that I demand (I am a devout ...

Vaude Bavella 35

£75.00

This daysack from Vaude is initially fairly comfortable, with plenty of padding on the hip belt and shoulder straps and a fairly cool back system. However, the upwards tilt of the hip fins is annoying, as they tend to ride up your waist. It’s a wide, roomy pack that carries the load fairly low on your back, making it feel ...

Vaude Maremma 28

£55.00

This daysack from Vaude is a comfortable, stable pack that carries a full load very effectively. The harness is flimsy compared to the best in class, but the soft shoulder straps, which are fleece-lined to prevent chafing, are excellent. It’s a lightweight model that comes with a compass, thermometer, whistle and sit mat. The pale coloured liner and large main ...

Vaude Triset 35 + 8

£55.00

This daysack from Vaude has adjustable shoulder straps that help it to mould sweetly around your back, and the Aeroflex concave back system is cool and comfortable. You hardly know you’re carrying it, even when full, and the padded waist belt is excellent. This is a roomy pack, but the compression straps make it easy to tighten everything down when ...
