Deuter has a long history of making innovative backpacks since the early 1900's starting with mailbags and post sacks for the Bavarian Royal Mail. Fast forward to 1968 when Deuter first begun using nylon, which later became the fabric norm for backpacks. It was in 1984 when they introduced the "Aircomfort" carry system which is now seen throughout the day packs and backpacks. Today, such pack series as the AC Aera, Airlite, Futura Vario and ACT Lite have become well known and showcase Deuter's innovation and ideas to make a pack that is both functionable and practical.
