Load adjustor straps on the shoulder straps and hip fins serve to fine-tune the load according to the terrain.
Ergonomically shaped shoulder straps lined with breathable 3D AirMesh. SL shoulder straps feature extra comfortable soft edges.
Ergonomic and removable X-frame with curved profile aluminium stays (removable) perfectly transfers the load on the hip wings (on models Guide and Rise Tour).
Flexible Delrin® U-frame in the models Freerider Pro, Guide Lite and Rise provides stability and effective load transfer with minimum extra weight. It follows the most varied movements with absolute ease.
ALPINE BACK SYSTEM
Body-hugging soft stripe pads follow even rapid movements and keep the load close to the body’s centre of gravity – essential in difficult terrain. The channel between the pads provides extra comfort by creating a “chimney” effect ventilation.
Removable insulating sitting mat stabilises the back.
Compact hip fins Removable, pivoting Vari Flex hip fins follow any movement, which saves energy and provides great freedom of movement even in difficult passages. The hip fins can be easily removed on the models Guide, Rise Pro, Rise Tour, and Freerider Pro. Advantages: weight reduction and better access to the climbing harness. The backpack can thus be carried just with the waist strap, which is also removable (on models Guide, Rise Pro and Rise Tour).
ensure perfect weight transfer and a stable fit – with PE-reinforcement on the bigger models.

ABS® AVALANCHEAIRBAG SYSTEM Highest survival rate
DEUTER ALPINE BACK SYSTEM
Out of 262 persons with activated ABS® avalanche airbag, 97 % survived, and 84 % were uninjured. (Source: SLF, known and documented avalanche accidents with ABS® avalanche airbags, August 2010)
A quick pull with little force and the system inflates irreversibly at the speed of sound. Within a few moments, the ABS® TwinBags inflate. Without compromise, quickly and with absolute certainty.
See and flee
The long proven and repeatedly awarded back system combines a compact, secure fit with maximum carrying comfort and comfortable ventilation.
The original ABS® self-rescue system – developed, manufactured and tested by avalanche experts since 1985. Survival made in Germany.
The ABS® TwinBag system can be activated without hesitation at the first sign of an avalanche. Nothing hinders the attempt to escape and nothing blocks the view or restricts movement, but you are protected right from the start.
Double safety Even if one of the two ABS® TwinBags is damaged, there is usually sufficient remaining volume to prevent total burial.
Dynamic lift The wide bearing surface due to laterally placed ABS® TwinBags stabilizes the body and increases the lift precisely in the critical avalanche runout zone.
Maximum visibility In 97 % of all documented avalanche accidents with activated airbags, the TwinBags were visible on the surface. The time-consuming, highly stressful and errorprone search in difficult terrain is avoided.
Easy pack and use Simple and safe to pack and quickly ready again for operation – after recommended training activation or in an emergency.

“Very good pack plus very good system equals very good avalanche airbag rucksack.” This is the OnTop verdict of Germany’s ALPIN magazine (01/15) in their test of more or less all the airbag packs available on the market. The ‘best in test’ award for our OnTop 30 further confirms our conviction to “always stay on top”. The 28 and 30 l capacity models are classic packs for day tours. We trust in the proven ABS® Twinbag system that inflates to a total volume of 170 l in mere seconds and we combine it with our legendary Alpine Back system. Safety that fits – also on the women’s back with the female specific SL model!

Or the two different side pockets: one open stretch pocket (e.g. for drinking bottle), one with zip. Or the new ‘garages’ that store the straps. The best friends are those you can rely on!
