A hiking bag is one of the essential equipment for outdoor sports, and can carry a lot of other outdoor equipment, such as storm suits, hiking shoes, emergency food, medicine, etc.

A good hiking bag can reasonably adjust our weight, more comfortable and breathable.

Today, Brother Darcy will introduce the world's four top outdoor hiking bag brands, Kitty Hawk, Gregory, Dort, and Archaeopteryx.

1, Dotter (Deuter)

Dotter is an internationally renowned German hiking bag brand, founded in 1898, Dotter has more than 100 years of experience in designing and producing backpacks. In response to the rich terrain and a variety of outdoor activities in China, Dott has introduced backpacks that are most suitable for mountaineering, hiking, leisure, cycling and tourism to provide users with more ideal choices.

Dort's backpacks, from the ultra-lightweight 20L Speed Lite series to the 50L breathable backpack Futura Vario series, are designed to best meet the ergonomic and application needs. The comfort of carrying gear is the most important thing to consider when playing outdoor sports, and Dort's backpack is known for its comfort and breathability, such as the simple and clean shape of the deuter Futura 22L with a powerful wet and dry storage space and up to 3L of water storage space, which has the most requested functions for long-distance travelers.

The Fordla series is a time-honored classic of Deuter and a full-distance (short, medium, long) hiking backpack that pursues excellent breathability, which has been continuously improved and optimized, and has won many awards and accolades since its launch in 1999.

FUTURA is designed for long one-day hikes and multi-day hikes, where high comfort and ease of use are the focus. A new mesh structure of the Aircomfort back system allows for greater ventilation. Reducing sweating, the removable ActiveFit shoulder straps and ergonomic waist wing (with pull-forward adjustment) also ensure comfortable wear.

AIRCOMFORT air floating mesh back panel, separating the back and back panel, multi-side ventilation effectively reduces back perspiration, summer is still refreshing and comfortable, while improving sports efficiency.

The round elastic steel frame remains firmly taut and provides stable tension to the Aircomfort back net. It creates a reliable ventilation space between the backpack and the back, through which moist air can evaporate freely.

The front pull-out belt makes it easier to tighten when carrying weights. The ergonomic padding effectively transfers the weight to the waist and ensures comfort, and when the weight is loaded, it fits tightly around the waist.

The ergonomically breathable mesh shoulder strap can be moved left and right to adjust to a comfortable position to suit the shoulder width of different people, and the pressure is relieved by the stable S-shaped padded shoulder strap, providing good carrying comfort.

Products with the PFCFREE label do not contain per- and polyfluorinated chemicals, so deuter reduces the use of harmful substances that pollute the environment and health. PFCs are also used as rain protection coatings because they are waterproof, stain-repellent, and oil-repellent. Instead, Deuter now uses a DHR treatment that is not healthy and environmentally sound.
