Green Multi-Talent! Sporty hiking backpack for ambitious tours and via ferrata excursions. TThe VentActive-Hike body contact back and snug hip belt ensure a compact fit. VAUDES´s new EMP back panel inside the rucksack stabilises the load and moves forward with it while preventing luggage from pushing through to your back.
The ergonomically shaped shoulder straps and the slim pack sack offer great freedom of movement. In the main compartment, everything you need for the day trip can be stowed away. You can also reach objects further down via a zipper opening in the front area. The hiking map is stored in a pocket on the front. In the lid compartment there’s a security pocket for keys, money and documents. If required, the backpack can be compressed using side straps. A side stretch pocket holds the water bottle or gloves and cap.
A material loop on the hip belt is perfect for attaching the via ferrata carabiners, on the other side there is a hip belt pocket. The Prokyon is not only versatile, but also impresses with its environmentally friendly production.
