Vacuole Backpack

The original original - a classic back pack.

Regular price $439.00

The Vacuole was the first backpack ever made by Cactus. The fact that some of the originals are still around is testimony to its pedigree. The classic design lends itself towards versatility and this had ensured its enduring popularity. Over the years (25 and counting) we’ve updated it with new materials and ideas to maintain its relevance. If you are only going to own one pack, the vacuole is a strong contender. Designed for heavier day loads the harness sports our c-aircell fabric, and a 38mm webbing waist belt.

  • C-aircell harness and a 38mm webbing hip belt all contribute comfort and stability be it lugging books to university or ski touring
  • Internal hydro sleeve to keep you on the go
  • Compression straps stabilise the load, take the stress off the zip, and allow awkward items
    (camera tripod, perhaps?) to be carried externally
  • Ice axe loop and shock cord for crampons keep the winter options open, and can be used
    for other things – axe loop for your flashing bike light, shock cord for – well – anything…
  • ‘Road kill’ front pocket for those wee items – keys, wallet, phone etc
