Also: style points.” Brittany Greer – “A Japanese sacred satchel (mystery contents, as you’re not allowed to ever open it) from the Toshogu Shrine in Nikko, Japan. It never leaves my pack.

Deuter made the first mountain bike backpack … by accident!

Posted by in Deuter USA Blog Posts

Deuter’s foray into mountain bike backpacks happened by accident. Literally. It was the winter of 1979-80, and Andi Heckmair was working as a certified mountain guide in Europe. There was an avalanche, and Heckmair — the son of a noted German climber — was injured in the slide.
