High Angle Solutions – Deuter Alpine Guide 35+ MultiCam


Deuter, one of the world’s leading pack manufacturers and maker of the iconic Deuter Alpine Guide, have turned their attention to the mountain troops of the world.  For a long time, there has been no dedicated mountain operations pack, which takes into consideration the requirements of troops operating in steep and technical terrain which is often covered in snow.  Coming in at 1670g and with all the features that you would expect of a pack designed for mountain ops the new Deuter Alpine Guide 35+ gives the tactical mountaineer what has been needed and then some.

The Multicam pack will be first available in April 2018.  RRP in the UK is set at £250 inc VAT.  Information and technical specifications are available from [email protected].

High Angle Solutions is a weekly series of articles focusing on military mountaineering solutions. It’s brought to you by UK-based Brigantes Consulting, in conjunction with several other brands, both here in the US and abroad. This week, it’s Deuter.

    Would like to see them do this with their Futura line of packs. Would be great for jungle and desert.

    For those of us only used to a MOLLE ruck or ALICE, what does a “mountain” pack design offer besides a tall load?

    • AbnMedOps says:

      Among other things, slenderization of the load, to allow free and easy travel back of the arms, elbows, and ski poles. And taking a large percentage of the load off the shoulders and putting it where it should be – on the hips, with an effective, countoured waistbelt.

    Ummm…. mystery ranch, eberlestock, arcteryx have already been doing
    This? Or is this someting new?

      So Deuter can’t?

      • d says:

        Kifaru, CilioGear, and Stone Glacier should also stop making packs then.

        • snark says:

          In case you hadn’t noticed, Kifaru’s military line has dwindled, darned near to the point of saying they don’t really have one. The real designer of that gear, Mel Terkla, has moved on…

          I like the look of this.

    I think Nik is just disputing the marketing jimbo that says “For a long time, there has been no dedicated mountain operations pack” as if that’s the first one on the market.

    Pretty cool though! They should make it with a reversible alpine/tropic rain cover.

    hmmmm…for a long time theres been no dedicated mtn op pack? by only deuter perhaps.
    awkwardly designed, heavy, gimmicky, unnecessarily complicated, unadaptable, sweat shop production. 1670g of absorbent nylon for 30L at $350…? none of that makes sense for either climbing or mtn ops.
    as stated above, Cilogear is who you want for this sort of thing.

  6. Dave says:

    Interesting, contacted Deuter USA, at first they did not acknowledge the multicam pack, saying they would have to make so many. So I sent them a copy of the picture showing that it exists. Don’t hold your breath.

  7. Paul says:

    Nice indeed, but £250 really, can I have mine without the gold wire that must be being used to sew this together.

  8. Blane says:

    Will any vendors in the States carry it?
