Vaude Astra 55+10 I Moss Backpack

Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Goldilocks. She went for a walk in the forest. Pretty soon, she came upon a house. She knocked and, when no one answered, she walked right in.

At the table in the kitchen, there were three backpacks laying on the table. Goldilocks was hungry for a new backpack, but it had to fit right. She tried on the first backpack.

"This backpack hurts my back!" she exclaimed.

So, tried on the second backpack.

"This backpack hurts my hips!" she said.

So, she tasted, er, tried on the last backpack--a Vaude Astra 55+10.

"Ahhh, this backpack is just right," she said happily and she started putting all her stuff in it--her awesome sleeping bag, a cool camp stove she had "found" earlier, and some bear claws for an afternoon snack. Then she noticed that there was some left over porridge sitting on the table, so she scarfed that up too. (Goldi had some issues.)

By this time she was pretty drowsy, so she laid out on the sofa and used her new Vaude Astra as a headrest. As she was sleeping, three bears came into the house. 

"Someone's been trying on my backpack AND eating my porridge!" growled the Papa bear.

"Someone's been trying on my backpack and eating MY porridge!" said the Mama bear.

"Someone's been trying on my backpack AND eating my porridge AND they're using my backpack for a headrest!" cried the Baby bear.
Just then, Goldilocks woke up and saw the three bears. She screamed, "Holy Sh**!" and dove out the window (but not before putting on her Vaude Astra 55+10 backpack, which by the way cushioned her fall.) Luckily the Vaude Astra was so light, she was able to run really fast and those bears couldn't catch her. A few years later, Goldilocks was arrested for shoplifting a tent. She got two years of probation and a $1000 fine. She's appearing on the next season of Celebrity Rehap--Shoplifting Addiction.
