ABS Inside Partner: Deuter

„To us, collaboration with ABS® is the perfect constellation. Two brands meet here that are market leaders and absolute experts in their field. This is reflected in the name of the new DEUTER avalanche backpack: “OnTop” stands on the one hand for the better chance of survival in an avalanche when using the ABS® system. And on the other hand it reflects two extremely experienced manufacturers, each “on top” in its field. We are very proud of this collaboration.”

It keeps the rider ‘on top’ or near the surface of the avalanche and significantly increases the chance of survival. Available in different sizes and colors.
