Vaude's Zerum 38 pack is a smaller pack with a substantial harness system making it ideal as a backpacking or adventure racing rucksack.
Carefree traveling: extremely lightweight trekking backpack for trips where every gram counts. Our lightest mid-volume backpack for trekkers and journeys weighs less than 900g. It is made of lightweight, rip-stop siliconized 70D ripstop and a rugged 200D material at the bottom and the sides. The weight-optimized Tergolight suspension system can be adjusted individually to the back length and provides a good fit and high wearing comfort.
Our smallest Zerum is best suited for shorter people to about 175cm. The height-adjustable lid offers storage space for things that need to quickly accessible. Underneath lies a cover that can close and compress the main compartment when the lid is detached. Side straps and a user-friendly packsack under the lid make it largely compressible. The front compartment with breathable mesh inserts is also particularly suitable for wet items like raincoat or rainfly because moisture can evaporate. Everything that should be easily accessible, can be stowed in the side, large-volume, stretch mesh pockets. Even a drink bottle or cap can be quickly accessed, without taking off the pack. A versatile, very strong cord serves as a functional option for attaching trekking poles and additional gear.
As an essential part of the "Big Three", this tour backpack is ideal for lightweight trekking and backpacking in combination with our lightest tents and sleeping systems. To protect the environment, the textile primary materials feature resource conserving and eco-friendly manufacturing in accordance with the strict bluesign® Standard.
Vaude's Zerum 38 Litre LW Rucksack comes in a little heavy for a 38 litre rucksack but that's because its got such a good harness that even has an adjustable back length, with good padding on the hip belt and a decent lumbar support it means that its a very comfortable backpacking rucksack if you can get all your kit into 38 litres.
There are two useful side pockets but there isn't the large external pocket that you see on the larger Zerums - this is a miss as you need somewhere to put your wet flysheet. The pack has a simple lid with a small internal pocket and also a stretch mesh hip belt pocket on the right hand side.
The Zerum 38 is a small capacity rucksack that can be used for backpacking because it has a substantial harness and backpacker friendly features.
