When my dad was out in the mountains with clients, I wanted to go climb “my moun- tains”, too. I was 10 and simply stole my dad’s second Tauern. One day I ended up in a heavy storm and the backpack was still wet when dad found it. He didn’t like it and I got good thrashing. In the end, though, he had to admit there was no holding me back.

For heavy loads (from about 10 kg) and longer walking distances in particular, the ideal adju- stment to the user’s back length is crucial. This means, it makes absolute sense to equip packs from a volume of 35 l with a vari-quick system. yet, keep in mind that every system with back length adjustment means additio- nal weight. For smaller capacities keep the pack’s own weight as low as possible. 3 deuter therefore offers for those models an option of three different sized back lengths: Standard, Sl and el. our rucksacks are designed to fit the ave- rage athletic build. yet, since not everyone fits the norm, we also offer a very special service: we can 2 easily adapt the carrying systems. in a few steps the shoulder straps of packs and child carriers with vari- quick can be swapped for Sl-shoulder straps. vice versa Sl straps can be exchanged for standard vari- quick shoulder straps that are suitable for the wearer with a more stronger build.14
