Deuter built its AViANT Series packs to be multifunctional, cross-training superstars that can help meld busy lives and adventure.

Are you an avid traveler looking for packs that can do more and go anywhere? Deuter’s new luggage series integrates light, durable, and deliberate travel packs that can take you anywhere and have the added benefit of being environmentally and socially conscious.


Deuter Packs Built for the Long Haul

What sets Deuter apart is its commitment to protecting our natural environment. Offering one of the best warranties in the industry, the Deuter Promise, Deuter guarantees free repair for all its packs — for life. Deuter wants to support your alfresco adventures by making the best, most durable products with the least impact on our planet.

The 120-year-old backpack company has also been a Bluesign member since 2008 (Bluesign represents the highest standard in responsible manufacturing and sustainable textiles). It’s also been a Fair Wear Leader since 2013, committing to just employment practices like reasonable work conditions, no child labor exploitation, and collective bargaining.


Deuter doesn’t stop there. The brand has also eliminated all PFCs in its new product lines, and the full collection will be PFC-free by 2020. PFCs (or PFAS) are chemicals used to make coatings for products that resist, among many other things, water and stains. These fluoropolymer products do not degrade but persist in water and soil, building up in both fish and wildlife.

PFCs, according to both the CDC and NIH, are linked to adverse effects on reproduction, thyroid function, immune system, and the liver in adults as well as neurobehavioral development in children. Instead of PFCs, Deuter uses a DWR that is not harmful to our health or the environment.

A Look at the AViANT Series

AViANT Duffel Pro: Active, Robust, Ready

When tackling a long-distance adventure, you’re going to need inventively designed storage. With an outer casing that doubles as a small backpack for day trips, the Duffel Pro is your PU-coated canvas basecamp.

Stowable shoulder straps and carry-on straps make this pack even more comfortable to handle through airport checkpoints and crowds. Clothes stay in place under internal compression straps, ensuring you arrive organized and unwrinkled. Four pockets add additional organization, while water-resistant material keeps all possessions dry.

  • Weight: 2 lbs. 15 oz.
  • Volume: 40 L
  • Size: 8.7″ H x 20″ W x 14″ D

AViANT Access Pro: International, Versatile, Comfortable

The marriage of extensive exploration and the practicality of a suitcase pair up in the AViANT Access Pro. Innovative compartmentalization, with reinforced sidewalls, zippered pockets, and lockable sliders, separates clean from dirty clothes, pads your laptop, and keeps valuables safe.

If your commute is longer than most, then your back and shoulders will benefit from the spring steel frame construction — the same Aircontact back system Deuter uses on its thru-hiking packs. An integrated daypack and four grab handles mean that the Access Pro is easy to handle, and a smart key clip and easily accessible laptop compartment deliver on accessibility and ease of use.

Heading to trek Europe or wander Australia? This is your bag.

Traveling with wheeled luggage? Deuter thoughtfully added a pass-through sleeve, giving you the option to thread the pack onto the pull-out handle of your rolling suitcase.
