Vaude Brenta 40L Backpack Gear Review

Click here to head over to Liberty Mountain

The Vaude Brenta 40 liter pack is a great pack for 1-2 day overnight trips. I have used this as a daypack too but for most day hikes its just too big. The pack has many built in features like a zipper that let’s you access the main compartment. Built in rain cover that stows away in its own pocket and great designs from the F.L.A.S.H should strap system to the Aerolex Easy Adjust Suspension System. The only cons i would say are the hip belt pockets. They are just too small. All in all though…Comfortable pack for 1-2 night trips. I could stretch it to 3-4 night with the right gear.

Thanks for this review. I bought model made specifically for a Danish sportsware shop, and was kinda worried it might not be good enough, as I couldn’t find any review of it at all. But your pack has a lot of same features, so I’m fairly certain that I actually have a great pack.

Hi, that’s very informative and helpful for all who are looking to see great backpacks out there. If you could make a review also for the Vaude Challenger 45+10 and Vaude Escapator 40+10 I would really appreciate it. Keep making videos, I love it!!!

I have the Brenta 35, which is slightly different … last year’s model, maybe? Mine is red, like the one in the video, but the straps are also red, not grey.. The 35 model doesn’t have the second zipped compartment in the bottom half of the pack.

I got it half price from “Backpacking Light” in UK.

I have a 70+10 pack and you cannot get replacement parts directly from vaude, they only deal b2b. They refer you to a distributor, only 2 in us, and they were unable to help either. In the future I will pay more for a pack that I can easily obtain parts.

Good review. The only one I have found which actually mentions that how you can access the main compartment from the front (although you didn’t actually unzip and demonstrate this) this is really useful because some people are looking for packs for travelling and not for hiking.

Peter Benisch says:

Thanks for a great review of the Brenta. Made things a lot easier for me. Might be worth mentioning the red straps also on both sides of the pack. They “crunch” or expand the backpack so you can control how close it comes to the back, allowing for controlling center of gravity, ventilation and overall fit without having to remove the backpack. Saw that in an older review and thought it was a cool feature.

Hi! Does a smartphone (iphone 5) fit in the belt pockets?

An amazing backpack for sure.
