Guest Blogger: 3 Bucket List Hikes in the Faroe Islands

Posted by in Deuter USA Blog Posts

By: Steve Mokan, owner of Chasing Epic Mountain Bike Adventures After spending eight days in the Faroe Islands this past June, my takeaway is this: It’s incredible. It could very easily be a world-class hiking and backpacking destination. The trails are there. The infrastructure is there. The mind-blowing scenery is most definitely there. The biggest thing that’s missing is the organization of the trails and hiking paths that already exist. It would help make it more accessible for beginner or intermediate hikers. With a little investment, the Faroe Islands could have…read more

Noso Patchdazzle – Keeping Backpacks on the Trail Where They Belong

Posted by in Deuter USA Blog Posts

Patchdazzle. It sounds like a great trail name for someone doing their third FKT attempt on the Appalachian Trail, right? Actually, it’s an awesome concept being perfected by #girlboss Kelli Jones and her team at Noso, an innovative repair patch company out of Jackson Hole that’s trying to keep our precious gear out of the landfill. How’s Deuter involved? Well, it all started when Becky Marcelliano, Deuter USA marketing manager, got chatting with Kelli at Outdoor Retailer last year. Jones was there gauging interest in a custom logo patch program…read more

The Magic of Intersections at Ecocamp Patagonia

Posted by in Ambassador, Deuter USA Blog Posts

I think innovation and the most fruitful ideas happen at “intersection points.” There is a sweet spot where two industries with common goals collide and create something truly unique and previously unexplored. Sometimes it feels like too much of our world exists in a silo. People in one industry are afraid to cross over into another for fear of not being seen as a specialist in their particular area of focus. Or for fear of straying from a perceived identity. Say you’re a scientist, or a pilot, or an artist,…read more

Posted by in Ambassador, Deuter USA Blog Posts

Are you comfortable climbing the 14ers around Colorado? Think you’ve got the chops for higher peaks, but don’t know what you should attempt next?

The mountain is the second highest of the “Seven Summits” and typically attempted after climbing Mount Elbrus or Kilimanjaro – for those trying to climb them all. For the rest of us just out for incredible adventures…read more

The Secret to Getting Children Outside (of their Comfort Zone) and Why it’s Important

Posted by in Ambassador, Deuter USA Blog Posts

We get outside with our children a lot. Being active is part of what we do as a family. Our children, ages 4 and 7, walk or ride bikes to pre-school and elementary school nearly every day and most of our weekends and vacations include outdoor adventures. As a result, our children have learned to ride bikes, ski, hike and backpack at an early age. Other parents ask us what our secret is, or assume that our children are naturally more inclined toward these activities. The secret is that we repeatedly give…read more

The Missing Five Percent and Why I Instagram my Dog

Posted by in Ambassador, Deuter USA Blog Posts

I take things with a pinch of salt on Instagram or other social media feeds because I know that it doesn’t always resemble reality. Most can agree that around 95 percent of the content we see appears to be perfect. But does anybody wonder about the other five? I mean, of course, what we are seeing versus what is actually happening doesn’t add up. And that’s because life is far from perfect. Life can’t be 95 percent sunshine, sends or other sparkly moments. Maybe the missing five percent make up the…read more

The Summit of Stoke: An Ambassadorial Adventure in Estes Park

Posted by in Ambassador

You’ve been there. Maybe your employer called it an “offsite” – where you and a few dozen folks you kind of know hole up together for a few days and explore your shared commonality. These multi-day events can be trying – often requiring a lot of awkward social dancing. The goals are usually to emerge from the experience with checkmarks on some sort of goal sheet handed down by the board of directors or HR director. Last weekend, in snowy Estes Park, Colorado, Deuter held its second-ever “Ambassador Summit” –…read more
