The core of our rental backpacks are from Deuter. Deuter began in Germany in 1898 and has a long history of making high quality packs with innovative technology. Our two favorite things about Deuter backpacks are the breathable back systems and comfortable strap systems.
Our rental packs are Deuter ACT Lite backpacks because they are sleek and spacious. Light, slim and anatomically shaped, the design of this pack ensures even load distribution for all day comfort. The Aircontact back system features pads that pump air through them to keep you cooler and drier. The Vari-Quick system lets you adjust the back length for an exact fit.
