Products have the highest sustainability when they are of such high quality that they remain functional and beautiful as long as possible before you have to buy something new.
VAUDE is traditionally known for its durable products. This is sometimes jestingly referred to as a market disadvantage, simply because no one is going to buy a new product when their old favorite is still fully functional and looks good, even after ten or twenty years of use.
We use high quality materials and the best processing technologies. Quality, durability and design are the cornerstones of our product development process. We make products that you can enjoy and rely on for years. And we're proud of it.
Durable and beautiful
Design and highest quality in processing are extremely important to us. This is the only way to keep the products "eternal".
VAUDE offers a two-year warranty on all products and is liable for defects. The "Made in Germany" Collection even has a five-year guarantee. But of course, our products last much longer when cared for properly.
If a product should break, it doesn't mean that its fate is sealed.
The VAUDE Repair Service fixes damage – both large and small – and replaces defective parts, prolonging the life of your VAUDE gear or apparel so you don't have to give up your favorite items.
Repairs include replacing defective zips, repairing tears, shoulder straps, defective grommets and snaps or even making complex repairs of tent floors, tent poles, etc. The experts at our product service team can help you with most problems. In addition, we work closely with our product designers and the product management team in order to ensure that, from the very beginning of product design, the product will be able to be repaired.
There are many repairs you can make yourself. VAUDE has been working with the online platform iFixit since 2016. Here you will find step by step instructions, can order tools if needed as well as the spare parts you'll need.
