Designed with long distance travel in mind, the Vango Freedom II 60+20 is the ideal choice when it comes to choosing a backpack for your gap year adventure! The Freedom II comes with a 60 litre main backpack, which is well suited to backpacking trips of various durations. You also get a removable 20 litre daypack for using as hand luggage and day trips when you reach your destination. This pack is a tough little cookie, using Vango's ground breaking Protex 4:2 fabric, which is abrasion and water-resistant, highly durable and easy to clean whilst maintaining a low weight.


Main Backpack

The Freedom II 60+20 has a 60 litre main compartment with a lockable full length zip opening for ease of packing. Inside, you'll find compression straps and a drawcord gaiter to help compress your gear and maximise packing space, as well as a zipped pocket for storing laundry. The outside of the backpack features external compression straps to help stabilise the bag's load, as well as top and side grab handles for easy transportation.


Detachable Daypack

You'll need a smaller backpack for day to day use during your trip, and the Vango Freedom II includes a 20 litre daypack for this reason! The detachable daypack comes with a 20 litre capacity and twin compartment design to help keep your essentials organised. The main compartment is hydration compatible with a hydration pocket and tube port (compatible with most styles of hydration reservoir), a handy feature that allows for hands-free hydration on day hikes when travelling. The front compartment includes 2 x mesh organiser pockets and you also get a large front stash pocket with an internal accessory pocket, perfect for storing travel documents and items you need easy access to. It also benefits from an airmesh padded back panel and shoulder straps for comfortable carrying and can be clipped to the front of the main backpack harness for added security in unknown areas.


Back System

The Freedom II 60+20 features Vango's Quick Adjust back system, allowing you to tailor the backpack to your height for a more comfortable fit. The harness comes with airmesh padded shoulder straps and an ergonomically shaped hip belt, paired with a contoured alloy frame for load distribution. The airmesh material used on the harness provides ventilation, making the backpack more comfortable to carry in hot and tropical climates. The back system can be zipped away to protect it during flights by using the integrated flight cover.

Comes in Turbulent Blue.
