Perfectly prepared for the hiking season with Deuter and Meindl

The temperatures are gradually rising again and the days are getting longer. High time to prepare for the coming hiking season. The outdoor equipment by Deuter and Meindl is what you need to tackle your next tour.

Outdoor backpacks

A hiking backpack is the core of every hiking set. A good rucksack should transfer the load to the hips and relieve the spine and shoulders. For many years now, German brand Deuter has been a go-to name when it comes to high-quality and durable products. Deuter’s new collection is kicking off the season with a new logo and a new brand design. The popular Futura product line has also been revamped. All key features are basically the same as in previous years, but some small improvements have been made here and there. For example, the practical Aircomfort back system is now equipped with a new, air-permeable mesh that promises even less sweating. If you want to know more about the Futura product line and Deuter’s repair service, it’s worth reading the following post about Deuter and sustainability (in German).

Multifunctional shoes

The right footwear is essential for any hiking trip. Not only do the right shoes provide the stability you need, they also prevent blistered feet. This spring, the traditional brand Meindl is launching new models for the hiking season. The Ontario GTX is a stable multifunctional shoe that is a faithful companion on every leg of the trip. Reinforced rubber on the toe and heel give your feet extra protection. In addition, the Gore-Tex membrane keeps out any moisture. The sturdy shoe is lightweight and ideal for spontaneous hikes. The Variofix lacing system ensures even lacing around the heel and provides you with a stable hold in the shoe if it gets a little slippery on the trail. The Aruba GTX is a very comfortable multifunctional shoe that keeps your feet dry even in bad weather thanks to its waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex membrane. The EVA midsole provides extra cushioning and good ground contact. Thanks to its practical quick lacing system and the two loops on the tongue and heel, this multifunctional shoe is easy and quick to put on.

Sleeping bags

If you’re planning on starting the season with a multi-day trekking tour, you’re bound to find the right sleeping bag in the Deuter range. The new Astro sleeping bag is feather light thanks to its down filling. It’s easy to compress, which makes it an ideal companion for longer tours. If you’re on the lookout for an easy-care sleeping bag made of synthetic fibres, Deuter is also the place to go. The Orbit sleeping bag is equipped with a contour hood to prevent heat loss through the head. While it keeps your lower body nice and warm thanks to a narrow leg section, the Orbit offers more freedom of movement in the upper part.
