VauDe Trail Spacer 18
The new Trail Spacer 18 is a running pack that’s a little too big for most running use but that in turn makes it an excellent choice for all-round fast hiking and biking use. The design is radical and based on a running vest, with a stretchy Spacer Knit back system giving an uncannily close, but non-restrictive fit – the process also minimises material waste during manufacture. There are pockets everywhere, nine of them, including two huge wing ones for rapid access to munchies and more on the move. There’s also a neat pole-stowage system and hydration reservoir compatibility. We found it struggled a little with heavier loads, but keep things light and it’s comfortable, stable and super versatile. It copes well with hot weather use too despite the wrap-around design and weighs just 550g. Finally, VauDe has focussed on sustainable design and materials.
Body hugging design and easy access to storage makes this a great choice for fast movers.
