National Outdoor Leadership School Extends Partnership with Deuter USA

Leading pack maker partners with premier wilderness school for rock climbing packs

LONGMONT, Colo (July 27, 2010) -- The National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) and Deuter USA have expanded their long-term partnership into NOLS' rock climbing program.

Deuter has been the exclusive provider of packs for NOLS' outfitting department for over five years. Each year, hundreds of NOLS students and instructors head into the backcountry equipped with Deuter's high-quality and multi-use backpacks to learn and teach wilderness skills, leadership, and outdoor ethics. NOLS will outfit students and instructors on its rock climbing courses with Deuter's Spectro AC 38.

“NOLS students and leaders need reliable, durable gear in the field and our partnership with Deuter speaks directly to that,” says NOLS Partnership Manager Jeanne O'Brien. “Deuter is the ideal partner for making sure we have the best products on our people for the appropriate courses. The Spectro really proved its worth in testing and we are excited to extend our partnership with Deuter.”

“Working with NOLS, providing our packs and helping with their education efforts continues to be a very positive relationship,” says Christian Mason, Director of Sales for Deuter USA. “We look at our partnership as one that helps us provide the best products for NOLS students and instructors for every course.”

To celebrate their extended partnership and retailer programs, NOLS and Deuter will be hosting an event at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City, UT at the Deuter booth (#12000) on Wednesday, August 4 from 5 – 6pm with prize giveaways and beer provided.
