The right fit for every body
DEUTER PRODUCTS ARE PERFECTLY TAILORED TO THEIR USERS!
Depending on their intended purpose, we know that the correct fit or details can be crucial. For this reason, we develop backpacks with various mountaineering activities in mind. These have functions such as adjustable hip fins or helmet holders. For women, there is a whole series that has been specifically designed for the female anatomy. We also offer models for people with longer backs.
SL COLLECTION (SLIM LINE): THE FIT FOR WOMEN
A SHORTER BACK
Women usually have a slightly shorter back than men. Our SL carrying systems are therefore adapted to the female anatomy and have a shorter cut.
NARROWER SHOULDER STRAPS
The SL shoulder straps have a pronounced S-shape and soft edges all around. In addition, the ends of the straps taper off narrowly - for a perfect fit in the shoulder area. Close straps are designed to fit the narrower female shoulders.
CONICALLY SHAPED HIP FINS
The closed SL hip fins form a cone to fit the female anatomy perfectly. This conical shape is created by the upwardly converging lugs and the anatomically adapted design of the SL hip fins. The fins nestle seamlessly to the female hip.
I AM A MAN, CAN I WEAR AN SL BACKPACKS?
Yes! The fit of the SL backpacks is based on an average woman of athletic build. However, since not all women are “average”, our standard models are suitable for some women. Conversely, all of the SL models are also suitable for men:
- for a slim build, aside from the unisex fit
- for long legs, because they have a short back
- for men’s clothing size 44–48 (S/M)
The precise fit of the backpack on the back of the wearer is crucial for optimum comfort. It is therefore essential to try on a weighted backpack in a specialist store.
EL SERIES (EXTRA LONG): THE FIT FOR LONG BACKS
Our Extra Long (EL) backpacks offer perfect wearing comfort for tall people! Athletes between 1.85 and 2.00 metres in height often have a hard time finding backpacks that fit them. We have therefore extended the back lengths of the most popular deuter backpack models by six to nine centimetres to match the proportions of larger persons.
The backpacks of the Extra Long (EL) Series also offer a larger amount of space with more volume. The back system, properties and details of the individual EL models are the same as the corresponding standard model.
