Limited edition, Olive Ultra C-Canvas Vacuole.

Availability: Out of stock

NZD $299.00



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 has 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.


We've done a one-off short run of Vacuoles in our new Olive Ultra C-Canvas fabric. This new canvas is ultra tough and extra burly, with extra water repellency and abrasion resistance.

There aren't many of these in existence in this world, so if you want a genuine limited-edition Cactus classic, now's your chance.
