The Vaude Asymmetric 38+8 46l multi day technical backpack is one of the nicest packs I have ever reviewed. At a $145 good luck finding one with more features and benefits thats built better!
This is a woman’s pack and specifically designed in such a way to make this pack a one sized fits most! This is a technical touring pack for multi-day backpacking with a body contact back for a secure and body-hugging fit. The newly developed suspension system with an integrated frame provides efficient load distribution and great stability. To meet the needs of different torso lengths – and for a perfect fit on your back – the suspension system, the load positioning straps and the women’s shoulder straps feature continuous adjustability. The hip belt is specifically designed for a woman’s shape and very well padded making long, multi mile days easier and more enjoyable.
The pack also features:
- Hydration sleeve with port opening (hydration bladder sold separately)
- Padded hip belt with pocket
- Individually adjustable supportive back
The hip-belt is specifically engineered for the female frame and is very flexible, providing excellent mobility in alpine terrain. In addition to the front entry main compartment, this touring backpack also has a map pocket. The adjustable and detachable lid features an inner safety pocket and an easy-access outer pocket. The pack can be compressed using the side straps as well as the strap under the lid. Everything that should be close at hand can be stowed in the side mesh pockets. The adjustable gear loops will hold an ice tool or trekking poles. This pack is my wife’s go to backpack when we venture out into the back country and she absolutely loves it. It has plenty of room enough for all of her gear and food too!
All in all another great pack from Vaude
