Be a smart consumer

For a company that has existed for 113 years, Deuter has come a long way in the research and development of backpacks which provide the best comfort, fit and durability of use for the discerning users. Such development takes them to partnerships with mountaineers, climbers and mountain bikers to ensure that each backpack produced will bear the hallmarks of Deuter’s brand – one that is long-lasting and grows on you.A well-made backpack will ensure that each trip you take would be as comfortable as possible – balanced load transfer, good backpack ventilation to minimise perspiration, thoughtful special fit for women, padded shoulder straps, superior fabrics, spring steel frame, lightweight  and stabiliser straps amongst others.   Using a poorly designed backpack increases the risks of shoulder chaffing and abrasion, back / spinal pain and fast wear and tear of the backpack. (Apparently some even broken before the trip!)
