6 BACK SYSTEMS
6 BACK SYSTEMS
Each person is unique. Each outdoor activity has its specific challenges. As faithful companions uphill and downhill, on the bike or on the climbing rope, we have developed different back systems. Each is tailored to specific requirements. Now find the system that suits you best!
A perfect wearing comfort for you
On small to medium backpacks that are at home in easier terrain we go for maximum ventilation. The heart of the Aircomfort systems – tested and proven for decades – is its flexible spring steel frame. It is extremely durable, provides stable tension for the airy back mesh and creates the ventilation space between pack and wearer’s back for the moist, warm air to dissipate. 1984 deuter invented & patented the first mesh back system worldwide.
Up to 25 % less perspiration thanks to the maximum ventilation achieved by the Aircomfort mesh construction. This reduces circulatory stress for more endurance – tested and proven by the renowned Research Institute Hohenstein.
The easiest way to carry heavy loads is when backpack and wearer become one. This is what our Aircontact principle is all about: the body contact system brings the weight close to the body and therefore close to the center of gravity. This results in full pack control and an effective load transfer. Furthermore, our Aircontact cushions made from special hollow chamber foam guarantee fantastic ventilation due to the pump effect of every movement.
Up to 15 % less perspiration as with a standard compact back system (proven in tests conducted by Gabriel L.&T and the University of Erlangen) – combined with outstanding load transfer and a secure, perfectly balanced fit.
A bike pack always has to sit secure and snug on your back – even on the roughest rides. Our unique Airstripes System takes care of that and offers effective ventilation. It consists of two contoured, air-channelled foam profiles that are covered with a highly breathable Wide AirMesh lining. The reduced contact surface results in an optimized fresh air circulation. Also, the pack’s load is kept close to the body and thus won’t throw the rider off balance.
The minimal contact surface area of the profiled Airstripes allows free air circulation over 80 % of the riders back, while still providing a secure, compact fit even on rough rides.
For alpine backpacks the combination of comfort, durability, functionality and low weight is essential. Deuter’s Alpine System answers this challenge by focusing on a compact, secure yet comfortable fit with its two flexible softstripe back pads that are perfectly adapted to the anatomy and follow the wearer’s movements. In combination with the pack’s sleek shape this keeps the load always close to the centre of gravity – thus guaranteeing full pack control.
The Alpine back combines a secure, compact fit for full pack control and full focus on the terrain with a top carrying performance and a comfortable ventilation between the two softstripe back pads.
Our lightweight backpacks come into their own during endurance sports and Alpine day treks. Reduced to the essential, they are ideal for comfortably carrying light to medium loads depending on the volume. However, lightness must never come at the expense of durability. That is and always was our corporate philosophy, bevause disposable products put a strain on the environment and a backpack that falls apart high up in the mountains can also be dangerous.
Our lightweights are designed for everyone who wants to travel light without forgoing carrying comfort and durability.
The ergonomically shaped back cushions of the Contact System hug the back and distribute the weight of the load evenly, relieving the load on the back. Additionally, loads are carried easiest when they are close to the body. Channels between the cushions as well the breathable, sturdy 3D Airmesh lining provide pleasant ventilation.
Ergonomically shaped Contact back cushions provide carrying comfort that relieves the back while keeping the weight of the load close to the body and distributing it evenly.
