DWR without PFC
The backpack is made out of high-performance, PFC-free, dirt- and water-repellent materials. To ensure the water and dirt repellent properties, it's used a Durable Water Repellency (DWR) coating that is safe for health and environmentally friendly and completely PFC-free. This special surface treatment causes water to roll off the outside of the textiles. This keeps the material dry and nature clean.
Known from household utensils, tools and toys: the voluntary quality mark “GS” for manufacturers stands for tested safety [“Geprüfte Sicherheit” in German] pursuant to the requirements of the Product Safety Act. It certifies products that pose no threat to the user if used correctly. Compliance is checked by independent inspection companies such as TÜV SÜD.
600D PES Coat
A high-quality and extremely robust TPU material that is highly tear resistant through fabric reinforcement and waterproof due to the closed surface. The closed surface reduces abrasion and, thus, the wear and tear of the material considerably. The material is used in different qualities – 620, 420 and 210 denier. Depending on the mechanical stress, the material can vary in the strength of the coating, the surface structure and single or double-sided coating. It is used, in particular, for Deuter's backpacks in areas of higher mechanical stress or increased moisture. The material is PVC-free and, therefore, lighter than comparable fabrics. It remains elastic even in extreme conditions.
225D PES Ripstop
This polyester fabric is light and robust. Thanks to the RipStop structure, it is far more robust than you would think at first glance. The matte appearance and technical look make it a winner amongst Deuter's urban day packs. The fabric is PU coated on the reverse and has a water column of 1500 mm.
