Vaude Asymmetric 42+8 (2014)

£120.00

The Asymmetric range from Vaude replaces the popular Astra range of packs. The Asymmetric back system can be adjusted to length by raising or lowering the shoulder strap section along metal staves in the back panel. You get a thin layer of mesh over perforated padding on the main body contact areas to reduce the build-up of sweat. The back ...

Vaude Triset 22 (2014)

£65.00

Designed for fast hiking, the Vaude Triset 22 weighs just 661g, which is not the lightest option; but this is a more walker-orientated design than the superlight packs that are optimised for runners. The pack has a seemingly less sophisticated back design than some others, with just two strips of mesh-covered padding improving comfort, rather than the full coverings of ...

Vaude Lizard GUL 1P (2014)

£550.00

If you rank minimal weight as your number one priority then the Vaude Lizard GUL 1P  is the tent for you. At just 740g including stuffsacks, pegs and poles, it’s half the weight of some in our test so it won’t weigh you down when backpacking. It features carbon poles and a unique pole configuration. There’s a short pole at ...

Vaude Taurus Ultralight (2014)

£300.00

The Vaude Taurus Ultralight is an extremely well-established tent that’s been reviewed many times in Trail and never fails to impress. It weighs in at a very respectable 1858g, which is lighter than some higher-priced tents. It pitches extremely easily outer-first with two poles being slipped through mesh sleeves and ladder-lock webbing adjusters around the edges allowing a taut pitch ...

Vaude Cheyenne 700 (2014)

£195.00

The Cheyenne 700 has a good temperature rating for 3-season use, being comfortable from -1 to -7 deg C. It uses an 80 per cent down with 20 per cent feather insulation, which is why the price is a little lower than some bags that use 90% down for example. This means more down is needed, however, which adds to ...

Vaude Birch Rain Pants (2014)

£55.00

Like many Vaude products the Birch Rain Pants are made from Bluesign-approved fabric, so they’re guaranteed to be made from sustainable materials and use resource-friendly production methods. The fabric is a 2.5-layer Ceplex Active, which is a PU-coated nylon. Like all 2.5-layer fabrics this can feel clammier than 3-layer fabrics or trousers with mesh linings, but with modern synthetic trousers ...

Vaude Basodino Hooded Jacket (2014)

£75.00

The Vaude Basodino Hooded Jacket is made from Bluesign-approved fabric, which means the material is environmentally friendly. The fabric is also nice and stretchy and provides a good level of insulation, which makes it ideal for hillwalking. Put the jacket on and it instantly feels comfortable and really hugs the body, but without being restrictive. There are three pockets. The ...

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 Crestone (2103)

£185.00

At just 314g (size L) the Vaude Crestone is the lightest jacket featured in our test but, surprisingly for the weight, it is also fully featured and those features are well-designed. It is shorter than some jackets, as is common with lighter designs, and also the front zip does not get an external stormflap, so don’t be surprised if this ...

Vaude Terratrio 2P (2013)

£175.00

The Vaude Terratrio 2P uses the same poles as the popular Vaude Taurus 1 but the porch area is 60 per cent larger, thanks to it being squared off at the front. The tent uses polyester, with a printed hexagonal ripstop effect, but this isn’t as durable as a real ripstop fabric. Like the Taurus 1 the Terratrio is extremely ...

Vaude Norrsken (2013)

£100.00

The name sounds like a shiver, so you would rightly guess the Vaude Norrsken is made with the cold in mind. The secret weapon is the Primaloft Infinity synthetic fill, which prevents cold air from the floor mixing with warm air from your body. It’s double-decked with ‘lilo’-style air chambers, which are very comfortable, and the outer two are thicker, ...

Vaude Defender (2013)

£150.00

The Vaude Defender is made from Schoeller 3XDry fabric, which is used by other brands, but this version is coarser and less shiny than competitors and the almost cotton look makes it more aesthetically pleasing. The product is Bluesign-certified for meeting environmental standards. The trouser provides a closer fit than some other models, making it better for scrambling and mountaineering, ...

Vaude Ortler (2012)

£165.00

The Vaude Ortler is a very lightweight jacket at just 341g (men’s size L), and in part this is because it is made from a very thin soft and supple 2.5 layer fabric, without a mesh lining. In the lab the fabric sports top-end levels of waterproofness and breathability, which makes this price very competitive; but 3-layer fabrics such as ...

Vaude Shipton Hooded (2012)

£130.00

The innovative hood design stands out as soon as you put the Vaude Shipton Hooded on. As you can see from the picture, it rises from inside the collar to make the fit really snug around the head and move with you. There are no hood adjusters, so as long as your head fits inside this is a great design. ...

Vaude Terratrio 2P (2012)

£175.00

The Vaude Terratrio 2P is based on the ever-popular Vaude Taurus 1 2P, but it has a 60 per cent larger porch area due to the squared-off profile at the front of the porch, as well as a different fabric that is more tear-resistant due to its hexagonal ripstop construction. This results in a tent that is more spacious than ...

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 Power Tokee Ultralight 1P (2012)

£360.00

The Vaude Power Tokee Ultralight 1P’s popular transverse pole design benefits from Vaude’s unique Power Frame System, which more securely attaches the tent to the pole to reduce movement in the wind. The pole is fastened to clips around the outside of the flysheet with a secondary clip locking the pole in place to prevent movement. Inside the tent there ...

Vaude Mischabel (2012)

£195.00

Offering a simple and attractive design, the Vaude Mischabel is the second lightest jacket (after the Kathmandu) and the third lightest contender (including the OMM smock) on test. The hem adjusters are swift and relatively easy to use, as is the neck adjuster with external tidy. The hood peak is semi-rigid and far from the largest on test but it’s ...

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 Slight Pro

£240.00

A really lightweight jacket weighing a mere 250g. The fit is generous, easily covering the hips, and there’s plenty of length in the arms too. The fabric feels silky smooth against the skin and is great to move around in. It has a decent-sized hood that swivels well with head movement, and there are baffle adjusters at the back and ...

Vaude Farley III

£70.00

A classic pair of trousers built with an eye towards travelling, thanks to their built-in sun protection and mosquito repellent. There is no stretch in the fabric, although the cut is suitably generous to negate this. The fabric itself is fairly lightweight too, aiming them at the summer walker. They aren’t a true convertible trouser but you can roll the ...

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 ...

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 ...
