Type of Deuter backpack system

It is important to make sure a backpack is used for the correct sport as well as fit your body properly.

Hence, we would like to present a comprehensive guide on Deuter backpack system in this article so that you could have a better understanding on different type of Deuter backpack system and find out which one is more suitable to you

Deuter are focus on three key factors when they building a backpack:

  1. FIT

Their backpack system are designed to fit the average athletic build.

However, since not everyone fits the norm, Deuter have come out 2 different fit other than “STANDARD FIT” simply known as SL-Collection (Women’s fit) and EL-Series (Extra-long series).

SL Women’s fit

1.)Narrower shoulder straps: The SL shoulder straps are both narrower and shorter in length in order to provide a perfect anatomic fit around the upper body. Besides, SL shoulder traps are set close together. Thus, they stay in place and do not slip off the shoulder.

2.) A slightly shorter back: (because of longer legs and shorter height, generally) A key comfrot factor since only the right back length can guarantee the optimum fit of the shoulder straps and waist belt.

3.) Conical shaped hip belt: The SL waist belt anchor points are set close together and are slightly curvedd angling diagonally upward. Preshaped fins so that the fastened hip belt has a conical shape delivering a customised fit.

4.) More sensitive chest: S shaped SL shoulder straps and softly lined edges on both sides. The SL construction curves around sensitive areas and stays in place.

Deuter’s SL backpacks are designed to fit the average athletic female build. However, since not everyone fits the norm it is likely that standard models also fit female user perfectly well – and vice versa: SL models fit men. Find out our SL product here  Deuter SL Women Fit
