The Outdoor tested lightweight backpacks for their new edition in January, putting a lot of emphasis on their harness system – because that also has to work for lightweights to ensure comfort and convenience on long trips. The VAUDE Zerum 38 LW met the strict test criteria and convinced as a buying tip of the outdoor.  

First, the testers checked the volume and weight to ensure comparability between the different manufacturers. How well the individual models wear, they determined on several day trips, in which they hired the rucksacks every hour and changed. Also equipment and operation of the backpacks were checked on tour. Robustness and longevity of the materials as well as the cleanliness of the processing played a role in the quality test.

Conclusion of the tester to the VAUDE lightweight:

“Ecologically exemplary, VAUDE manufactures the Zerum 38 LW mainly from materials that meet the strict bluesign criteria. Furthermore, the flyweight scores with a simple back length adjustment and a harmonious-flexible wearing behavior – especially in smaller people (max 1.80 m). The load transfer is also impressive: a great backpack for both leisurely and sporty tours. “
