Vaude VFlex Suspension

The ultralight VFlex suspension system is specially engineered to meet the demands of alpine terrain. The backpack sits close to the body and distributes the load evenly across the back allowing for optimal balance when hiking. Inside the backpack a back plate ensures firm back stability. Even when fully loaded, this prevents the backpack from warping out against the pack. For ultralight use the plate can be removed, reducing the weight even further. The back panel made from visco-elastic foam prevents pressure points and comfortably adjusts to the wearer’s back. The V-shaped placement of the back pads not only provides the system with its name, it is also designed in close alignment with the anatomy of the human back for best comfort. Between the pads there is a ventilation channel that becomes increasingly wider toward the top. The hip belt can be completely detached, which is extremely practical when wearing a climbing harness on high altitude tours
