Deuter USA -- Company History

About Deuter Backpacks

Deuter Backpacks (pronounced doy'ter) is one of the oldest and most respected backpack makers around. The company was founded in 1898 by Hans Deuter, making strong, durable mail bags and post sacks for the Bavarian Royal Mail. When climbers started using the mail bags as climbing packs, Hans knew it was time to do some real backpack designing. The company expanded - manufacturing backpacks, suitcases, tents, and track canopies. In 1938 Anderl Heckmair made the first acents of the North Face of Eiger - wearing a Deuter Backpack - with teamates Ludwig Vorg, Fritz Kasparek, and Heinrich Harrer. And the rest is history! From the first producer of nylon backpacks (cutting edge at the time!) in the 1960's to a leading designer of mountaineering, alpine and biking packs. Deuter hires some of the best athletes in the world to design gear. In the last 20 years, Deuter has expanded internationally, creating a Deuter USA subsidary.
