    Default Vaude pack

    My daughter acquired a Vaude pack today at a yard sale. Seems to be a quality pack. Iíve never heard of them. Anybody have any experience with this company?

    Vaude is a German company, known for medium quality stuff.
    Not bad, not top, just medium.

    Many years ago I had a cradle to carry my daughter, which was a Vaude product (the cradle, not the daughter), and while it was pretty much the only reasonable cradle you could buy in EU at this time, it was of poor design and low quality.
    So maybe this single experience ruined the reputation of Vaude for me.

    Thank you for the responses. I saw mixed reviews online. The pack doesn't seem to have much wear, so it's probably worth the 12 bucks she paid for it.
    The pack is very large (faint lettering on the fabric looks like it says "75+10"), has loads of pockets, and great access to the main compartment. It's on the heavy side, but it's her husband who will use it, not her.

    $12 for a huge pack thats still OK is a good buy.
    75+10 liters is really huge. We have two Lowe 80 liters and they were killing us because we always tend to fill the pack to the brim, no matter how small or big it is.
    We finally went to the shop and got smaller packs. The huge Lowe 80 lt are now our standard travelling (flight) luggage.
