deuter Trail fit
The Trail series are designed to fit closely to your back – meaning there is a more direct connection to the load and it's easier to maintain balance with a heavy pack. Less effort is required to keep the pack centred and so there is less strain on your muscular system. These packs sit snug against the back and close to your centre of gravity for optimised carrying comfort.
deuter Trail ventilation
The Trail series provide excellent ventilation thanks to the Airstripes back system. The Airstripes pads run vertically from top to bottom and are aligned with the contours of the body, creating a compact fit. With ventilation channels. The padding also has minimal contact surface, aiming to create airflow across 80% of the back.
Combined with pivoting perforated ActiveFit shoulder straps and ergonomic hip fins, the overall effect of the pack geometry is of a secure fit with compact weight distribution, which should significantly increase carrying comfort, regardless of terrain.
deuter Trail features
Packs in the Trail series aim to offer a wide selection of compartments and pockets for organisation, including a large-opening front zipper for quick access to the main compartment. Special loops on the shoulder straps keep via ferrata carabiners clipped within reach and not hanging down by your legs, which is also safer.
Trail backpacks also come with a host of other mountain-specific hiking features like stabilizer straps to tweak the load control; side compression straps which double as attachment straps for a helmet, ice axe and trekking poles; a safety whistle; detachable rain cover; multiple pockets and compartments to stow valuables and other essentials.
The Trail series has been designed with sustainability at its core. The body fabric used throughout the Trail series is made with 50% recycled materials. And like all of deuter's new products since 2020, the Trail packs are also PFC free.
