In the sector of backpacks, Deuter is the pioneer and market leader in Germany. Deuter is a brand with a long traditopn: 1898, Hans Deuter found the company in Augsburg as a letter bag and sack supplier for the post. Meanwhile you can't imagine the Alpine history without Deuter. Deuter backpacks have been exposed to extreme conditions on numerous expeditions and were tested on the hardest levels - from the first ascent of the Eiger north face by Anderl Heckmair 1938 to the current expeditions of "8000 woman" Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner. Intensive cooperation with the extreme sports and mountain experts of international mountain- and ski leading associations forms the foundation for the innovations with which the product development of Deuter revolutionized the market again and again. These include among others the first back-ventilated patented "Deuter Aircomfort" carrying system, which came on the market in the mid-80s. Deuter was also a pioneer in the bike area and developed the first brand-specific biking backpacks. With the SL-series they present a complete collection of women backpacks that are tailored to the smallest detail to the female needs. Since 1995 Deuter also develops high quality sleeping bags and sets with stretchable "Exosphere" new sleeping standards.
