Guest Blogger: Where do Alaskan Fly Fishing Guides go in Winter?

Posted by in Deuter USA Blog Posts

I have the best job on the planet. My home base really is my home, and it’s surrounded by some of the most beautiful wilderness on Earth. If that sounds like an exaggeration, consider this: I own and operate a fly fishing lodge in Alaska, and I love to fish. Family and friends help me welcome and guide fellow anglers from all over the world. One of the questions we hear most often always makes us smile: “So, where do you fish when you aren’t working?” The truth is that…read more

Posted by in Ambassador, Deuter USA Blog Posts

Adventuring with your littles is one of the greatest joys of parenthood. Whether you are hiking, backpacking, skiing or bike riding, watching your young adventurer grow and develop over the years is magical. But that magic can come at a price. In spite of the picture-perfect stories on social media most kids will, at some point, melt down on an adventure. Knowing how to defuse the situation and help your child recover is critical to having an enjoyable trip and one that they will remember positively. At 10 years old…read more

‘Is This Pack Waterproof?’ How to Keep Your Gear Dry on the Trail

Posted by in Ambassador, Deuter USA Blog Posts

For the first five days of my Appalachian Trail thru-hike it rained every day. With daytime highs hovering in the mid to upper 30s in the mountains of North Georgia, staying warm, dry and motivated was a challenge. I managed to stay motivated but struggled with the other two. My one solace was in knowing that I had a dry sleeping bag to crawl into at the end of the day. Fortunately, my one longer backpack trip before this – Vermont’s Long Trail – had also started with five days of rain and I…read more

The Joy of Rollers

Posted by in Ambassador, Deuter USA Blog Posts

Every dirtbag climber goes through stages when it comes to gear, but the general consensus is the older you get, the more you want your gear to work for you. Thus, began my process toward the joy of appreciating the roller. I always looked at rolling luggage in the airport as a luxury. While headed back home to the Midwest or out on a big climbing trip I’d always cram everything I could into a backpack and cram it into the overhead compartment, or at a very last resort, check…read more

The outdoor school of life lessons for little tykes

Posted by in Ambassador, Deuter USA Blog Posts

Some people think, or have been told, that when they become parents their outdoor lifestyle inevitably slows or halts altogether. That’s just not the case- nor does it have to be. I encourage parents to continue their outdoor lifestyle and teach their tykes to embrace it along the way. There are so many things young tykes learn when out on adventures. They aren’t just trudging up a hill, just sleeping in a tent or just skiing down a slope. Tykes are not only learning about the natural world around them,…read more

Deuter travel packs withstand the rigors of a family trip to Baja

Posted by in Deuter USA Blog Posts

Before the addition of our little one, Ali, Julie and I were frequent travelers to the East cape of Baja, Mexico for surfing and fishing adventures. Back in our childless days, it was pretty easy to throw our ocean gear into a couple of duffel bags, deal with the car shuttle, the airport, the rental car pick-up and the two-hour drive from San Jose Del Cabo northeast to the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez. However, with an almost three-year-old making her first trip south of the border, we…read more
