Vango Sherpa 60:70L S - Thunder Information

Season : AW21

Brand : Vango

Code : 5067050

As the name suggests, Vango have made the Sherpa change size from 60L to 70L thanks to expansion zip side pockets, giving plenty of storage space for any extra items you might need on your DofE expeditions. This generous size is carried by the Self Adjust back system, adaptable to backs of almost any size and designed to carry weight with comfort all day long. The adjustable harness is shaped to provide an optimum fit and the air mesh in the shoulder straps provide a steady air flow. The sternum strap with whistle provides extra support when carrying heavier loads. This ‘S’ version is designed for those with a shorter back length, measuring between 46-56cm from hip to C7 vertebrae.

There are plenty of pockets for storage and easy access, with a very important OS map-sized pocket with a water-resistant zip, two zips pockets in the lid, expansion side zip pockets and an optional compartment divider; useful for separating wet and dry kit at the bottom of your bag. The practicality then goes further, with a zip pocket on the waist belt that’s ideal for snacks when on the move!

The main rucksack fabric is 600D Excel Polyester; tough, rugged and backed with PU for extra strength. Although it’s highly water-resistant, Vango have included a high visibility raincover just in case the weather takes a serious turn and it starts raining heavily, rounding off a rucksack that’ll see you go all the way from your Bronze DofE through to Gold and beyond.

Buyers Guide - How to choose a rucksack

Your spine is the key to good health throughout your life and making sure you protect it by carrying your kit correctly is something we take very seriously.

Thanks to modern technology, carrying heavy loads needn’t be a burden on your body. There is a TON of science already invested in the rucksacks sitting on our shelves ready to carry everything you need to enjoy your time in the hills safely and comfortably so what questions do you need to ask to make sure you buy the right one?

- How big a pack do I need?
- What is the Difference between Men’s and Women’s packs?
- Does my “back size” look big in this?
- Fixed or adjustable?
- What is the difference between sizing and fitting a pack?
- Why do I need a mirror?
- How do I choose between features?



Top tips to make the right choice:

Load carrying doesn’t need to be miserable! Once you have narrowed down your choice of packs, pop some weight in them and take some time to walk around for 20 or so minutes. Go up and down steps, try an incline – we have all these available in the shops for you to try. If you are at home we can still help over the phone and don’t forget the importance of a mirror. Our staff are experts on fitting and using packs because once you have chosen the best pack for you – the science of packing begins……
