The ergonomic head moulding provides perfect head clearance. (from Aircontact 50+10 SL).
Additional load adjustment straps on the shoulder straps allow optimal positioning of the backpack. These are easily positioned on the shoulder straps using a “Triglide“ buckle. Aircontact models above 50+10 SL sizes also have two different fixing points, depending on the back length setting, in order to optimize the load adjustor strap angle.
The new Active Fit shoulder straps are flexible and automatically adapt to the shoulder’s width and angle. Their anatomical S-shape follows the neck and shoulder contour and thus prevents chafing or pressure points.
The anatomic profiled X-frame transfers weight on the hips. The crossed aluminium stays create a flexible, yet stable frame that follows your body movements.
The proven Vari Quick system guarantees easy adjustment to any back length. The new back panel construction creates a big contact surface making it even more compact and comfortable to carry.
The light way to carry heavy weight: The Aircontact system perfectly adapts to the wearer’s back and holds the load close to the body’s centre of gravity. With every movement, a pump effect circulates air through the breathable padding with special ventilating hollow chamber. The result: 15%* less perspiration than with other body-contour packs.
The new, complex 3D-shape of the hip fins guarantees an outstanding fit. They are made from multiple layers combining soft and firm foam with additional reinforcement. Thus they evenly distribute the load on the hips without any pressure points. Side compression straps on the fins regulate the weight and increase stability. On the smaller models the fins are softer, while the bigger packs come with more stable foam.

The pull forward function makes the hip belt easy to fasten even with heavy loads.
The Vari Flex hip fins follow even the most complex movements – especially important when carrying a hefty load.

AIRCONTACT PRO Our super robust Aircontact Pro carries heavy loads with ease. The mobile hip fins diligently follow every movement and distribute the weight evenly, while the technical Vari Fit back is individually adjustable. Thus the big packs offer what you need for heavy haulage: stability, efficient load transfer and incredible flexibility.
AIRCONTACT PRO SYSTEM
With the stepless Vari Fit system the pack can be easily adjusted to the individual wearerâ€™s back.
Two ergonomically formed V-shape multi-chamber aluminium stays, direct part of the load from the back to the hips.
When fastened, the hip fins taper upwards in a conical form. The fins are concave and ultra-padded and sit perfectly on the hips. The multi-layered, PE-stiffened foam spreads the load evenly. The Pull-Forward construction makes the hip belt easy to fasten even with even heavy loads.
Deuterâ€™s Vari Flex system certainly defines the flexibility of this carrying system. The pivoting hip fins follow complex body movements. Thus, the load can be evenly distributed to the hips, providing freedom of movement and reducing fatigue. Two sturdy GRP-rods and load adjustment straps on the hip fins allow for precision load control. The Vari Flex system and aluminium stays form the core of the carrying system, which combines stability, efficient load transfer, perfect load control and incredible flexibility.

DIRECT RELIEF AND LONG-TERM COMMITMENT IN NEPAL :
OUR SUPPORT FOR NEPAL!
Die Deuter Primary School bietet Platz für 400 Grundschüler. Kathmandu; Nepal
Manfred Lindner (2. von links), zweiter Vorstand der Nepalhilfe Beilngries, Kathmandu; Nepal
Nepal is a dream destination for many of us – for alpinists, for trekkers as well as for mountain bikers. We are lured by the world’s highest peaks and are welcomed (and amazed) by warm, spiritual, hospitable, and smiling people – despite the fact that it is one of the poorest countries in the world. Out of those personal encounters many humanitarian projects have grown. Almost 15 years ago, our long-term CEO and 8000er alpinist Bernd Kullmann was interviewed by a German television programme on the Mount Everest. The show also hosted Karl Rebele who was then chairman of the aid organisation Nepalhilfe Beilngries. Bernd Kullmann spontaneously donated his appearance fees and collected more money shorty after at his 50th birthday celebration. The ties became closer over the years: in April 2013 we were celebrating the inauguration of the Deuter Primary School. It used to be the oldest school in Kathmandu and the building was in unbearable condition. Manfred Lindner from the Nepalhilfe Beilngries says: “The rooms looked more like stables and didn’t resemble a school at all.” The new threelevel building has ten classrooms and provides a perfect learning environment for 400 students. Deuter contributed 32.000 Euro to the overall construction sum of 130.000 Euro. And we surprised the students with school bags and pencil cases at the opening ceremony. “We’ve been supporting the organisation for about five years now and it feels so good to have
“WE KNOW THAT EVERY EURO THAT WE DONATE ACTUALLY GETS TO THE RIGHT PLACE AND MAKES A DIFFERENCE. WE WANT TO THANK THE ENTIRE TEAM OF THE NEPALHILFE FOR THEIR INCREDIBLE WORK IN NEPAL.” Now it is important to respond to the urgent needs in this small, beautiful country. The first heavy quake struck Kathmandu on a Saturday – a school-free day. So fortunately none of the students were harmed in the Deuter Primary School. The building was only slightly damaged and can be used again after a few repairs. But the Nepalhilfe Beilngries supports all in all 24 schools in many regions, as well as several hospital wards, a children’s home with 35 orphans and many other projects such as homes for the elderlies, a training institution for seamstresses, farmland and a vocational training school. After the quake Manfred Lindner had sad news: “The Sindhupalchok district, where most of our schools are based, has been strongly ravaged by the quake. 90 % of the buildings have been destroyed or severely damaged.” Emergency relief, therefore, was the main focus after the disaster. In the first few weeks, the Nepalhilfe Beilngries distributed 55 tons of rice, 1.5 tons of lentils, 1.8 tons of salt, 1.250 l of oil and almost 1.000 sanitary sets in 17 villages, as well as 4.000 sleeping bags that were donated by our Taiwanese manufacturer. Also, the Deuter em-
ployees started collecting internally raising 1.000 Euro. With an additional 5.000 Euro from Deuter Sport GmbH, the brand was able to donate 6.000 Euro to support the incredible work delivered by the Nepalhilfe. We hope that the wounds in Nepal will heal. That the buildings will be re-erected and that the new generation will find its way out of poverty with good education. And we are more than happy to support them on their way.
that school. The close cooperation ensures efficient help and that’s fantastic to know and to see”, says Angela Vögele who is in charge of the cooperation at Deuter. She underlines that
