When looking for a travel backpack, I always consider the weight and its compartments. I’m a heavy packer so I want the backpack itself to be lightweight. I’m systematized when it comes to packing so I want the backpack to have proper compartments to segregate my stuff. Looking into these aspects, I can say that Vaude backpacks positively hold these features.
Vaude is a German producer of backpacks and other mountain sports equipment. As Europe’s environmentally friendly outdoor brand, I’m pleased that this promising brand is now in Manila.
Vaude was first introduced in the Philippines through Tripologie. Tripologie is a travel store in the country that sells different brands of bags, backpacks and other travel accessories but it is the only store that exclusively sells Vaude items in the Philippines. Though the brand offers extensive range of outdoor items such as tents, outdoor apparels, backpacks, sleeping bags and other travel accessories, what are only available in the country as of the moment are backpacks and some outdoor accessories.
It was in February that the brand was launched in Manila. Melvin, one of the partners that bring Vaude in the Philippines, led the launch by presenting information about the prestigious brand. He demonstrated to us some Vaude backpacks and its suitability, which we had truly been entranced with.
Each Vaude backpack has its individual features. Each has its own usage. Though each product has its own uniqueness, all Vaude backpacks share common qualities in terms of lightness, expansiveness and ease.
Amongst the backpacks that were presented during the launch, the type of backpack that I personally like is the Wizard. This type of Vaude backpack is practical and an all-round backpack that has carrying capacity expansion. In addition, its easy adjust suspension system allows for an airy, comfortable fit, while its shoulder strap can be easily adjusted to adapt the backpack to any sized torso. Checking the online site of Vaude, when it comes to backpack that is good for longer travels; I would like say the Brenta type of backpack captured my taste. This backpack is said to be great for longer tours. This backpack has a fine mesh fabric and ventilated back that makes the carrying relaxed. The product in detail has easy-adjust shoulder straps, large stretch outer pockets, gear attachment, compression straps and hydration port. It’s the travel backpack that I couldn’t wish to have anything more. It looks just perfect for my weeklong journeys.
One thing that was also announced during the launch of Vaude was their partnership with Trail Adventours. Before the brand was formally introduced in the country, people behind Trail Adventours were already able to test the wellbeing and fittingness of Vaude backpacks during hiking and longer travels. Tour guides were able to attest the comfort, easiness and suitability of the backpacks by sharing some of the backpacks modern qualities.
Presently, I don’t own any huge travel backpack that I can use during longer trip. I often use my daypack or suitcase whenever I travel. But because of the unique attribute that Vaude backpacks have, I’ve suddenly got interested in owning one. Its comfort, sustainability and modern features make this brand regarded from the rest. Now, I’m looking forward to see myself traveling again, not with my usual daypack or suitcase anymore but carrying one of Vaude’s travel backpacks.
