The Prokyon 28 is a great beginner mountaineering pack for longer stays in the mountains. Large mesh pockets on the sides allow easy storage and access to the things you need most, like water bottles, jackets gloves and more. Vaude’s VentActive back panel keeps the pack close to your back for improved balance and agility, and includes an internal EMP panel to support the load and prevent gear from jabbing into your back. The Prokyon 28 is anatomically optimized for women with ergonomic shoulder straps and a narrow profile to create greater freedom of movement. Designed with a mountaineer’s needs in mind, the Prokyon 28 includes a single gear loop on the belt to store carabiners, quickdraws, slings and other gear you’ll need for protected scrambles. With the Prokyon you’ll never spend time shuffling through your pack looking for small items. This pack has a place for everything, including a key pocket, a document/money pocket, map pockets and more. Whenever you buy a Vaude pack, you can be assured it meets the highest environmental and social standards. This means they include recycled materials and environmentally friendly fabric treatments, and that everyone involved in the production process has good working conditions and competitive wages.
