VAUDE products bearing the Eco Finish sign have been been waterproofed in an environmentally friendly way without fluorocarbons, sometimes referred to as perfluorocarbons or PFCs. They are part of a group of chemical compounds which are used to waterproof the outer layer of many outdoor products.
VAUDE has made a clear commitment to completely renouncing PFCs
after they had come under criticism for being non-biodegradable, bioaccumulative and toxic, and suspected of being harmful to health.
