Rise to the challenge, backpacking with young children is 100% worth it!

Posted by in Ambassador, Deuter USA Blog Posts

“This just isn’t worth it,” I said to my wife as I stood in a shady spot on the side of a washed-out forest road with my Deuter AirContact 75+10 loaded with all the gear for our family of four. We were 20 minutes into our first backpacking trip since we had our second child last fall and I could still see  our parked car. We had been prepping our 3 year old son with several day hikes over the last month or two, with his longest hike being 5…read more

Whitesides Mountain… not for the faint of heart

Posted by in Ambassador, Deuter USA Blog Posts

Deuter ambassador Karsten Delap and Lance Sullins of Fox Mountain Guides recently reported back some awesome picks from a trip to Whitesides Mountain. Some of the longest climbing east of the Mississippi. The wall has 850’ of vertical and overhanging climbing to reach its summit. The climbing is generally long, runout, scary and not for the faint of heart. If you can overcome these challenges it provides some of the best views the Nantahala National Forest has to offer and a climbing experience of a lifetime. Have you been? want…read more

These are a few of our favorite things

Posted by in Ambassador, Deuter USA Blog Posts

In June during Ali’s school break, we packed up the van to visit the grandparents in Colorado and do some camping, fishing and climbing. We were lucky to get stormy cool weather (we live in Bishop where summer means sunny and hot), great fishing, and fun cragging.Ali had a great time tearing up and down the Koper’s Trail in Rifle, exploring the Ice Caves, and heading to the cliffs with her “big girl” pack (a Kikki). It allowed her to chose, pack and carry her crag essentials and feel like…read more

Come for the skiing, stay for the mountains

Posted by in Ambassador, Deuter USA Blog Posts

One of the best things about living in a ski town is that having fun in the mountains doesn’t end with the ski season. Most mountain communities are year-round adventure playgrounds and North Lake Tahoe, where I live, is no exception. I moved here for the skiing and stayed for the endless outdoor recreation. Living in Tahoe has been a dream come true. All winter I’m minutes from world class skiing, and come summer I have hundreds of miles of singletrack trails accessible from my front door.Every spring as the snows…read more

Testing Out Independence on Independence Day

Posted by in Ambassador

We’ve had the Deuter Fox 30 for nearly two years, and have gradually experimented with adding more weight to it in the hopes that one day our son can carry all of his own gear on our trips into the backcountry. The very first time he used it was at the age of 5 on a Nordic ski adventure. We should have known better than to try two new things—skis and a real backpack—at once. That didn’t work out too well. Pack weight-15 lbs. The waist belt was still a…read more

Packing A Backpack

Posted by in Deuter USA Blog Posts

Loading Pack “The most important step when packing your rucksack is to leave the superfluous at home! As a general rule, a fit person should not carry more than 20 – 25% of his/her body weight over a longer period of time. The German military calculates with 33% – but then, we all know that their trips are more than strenuous!” The pack’s center of gravity should sit close to the body and ideally at shoulder height. This way it is positioned over the body’s center of gravity and the…read more
