Wilderness Medicine Training Petzl was born from its founders' desire to serve one passion: exploration. From its beginnings in the caves of France's Dent de Crolles, the company’s mission has remained constant: to offer innovative yet practical solutions that allow people to progress through the most challenging terrain. Today that pioneering spirit, passion for exploration, and ethic have not changed. More than forty years later, Petzl continues to invent products and provide solutions that allow sports enthusiasts and professionals to access some of the most inaccessible places in the world, day and night. For more, visit www.petzl.com. Deuter Sport GmbH of Gersthofen, Germany, celebrated its 115th year in 2013 and is one of the leading international technical pack brands.
