Tatonka Backpack Systems

X1 CARRYING System

High-end for heavy loads : The X1 carrying system is specifically designed for carrying heavy loads over 20kg. The special X-shaped construction : (1). directs part of the load horizontally to the specially padded hip strap, (2) thus transferring the load from the back to the hips. This means that the weight can be transferred over much longer distances. The anatomically positioned and very comfortable hip strap (4) can be easily adjusted and allow the carrying system to be adapted to the perfect fit. A rubberised lumbar pad (5) and the back padding above it with its conclave shape (6) ensure stability and that the rucksack sits perfectly against the back.

V2 Carrying System

Flexible for medium to heavy loads: The construction of the V2 system with specifcally positioned rods(1 and 2) provides an excellent ratio of efficient load transfer and flexibility at the same time. The carrier can still move around relatively well, despite the heavy weight he or she is carrying. The ergonomically shaped hip strap with lumbar pad (3) and conically shaped hip wings (4) is comfortably padded and prevents the rucksack from slipping. The back padding with its conclave shape (5) gurantees optimum hold and good contact to the rucksack - for sufficient freedom of movement, even when the rucksack is full. The load control straps (6), the comfortable shoulder strap (7) and the lid (8) are adjustable to allow you to find the perfect fit.

X Lite Vario Carrying System

As light as possible: The X Lite Vario carrying system was designed to be as light as possible. This makes it the right choice on active tours when you dont want to take many belongings. The special back construction with side stabilisers, three-part hip strap with lumbar pad (1), two comfortable hip wings (2) and concave shaped back padding (3) ensure that the rucksack sits perfectly and prevents it from slipping out of place. Two X-shaped crossed glass fibre rods (4) efficiently deflect the load to the ergonomically shaped hip strap, thereby transferring it from the back to shoulders hips

X Vent Vario Carring System

Good ventilation on hikes: The X Vent Vario system is mainly used for hiking and active rucksacks. It combines the clever load distribution of the X Systems with the pleasant carrying comfort of a ventilated system. Thanks to the X shaped construction (1) the load is transferred horizontally to the hip strap in sturdy Hypalon pockets (2). The mesh back (3) can be smoothly tightened or loosened - depending on wether ventilation is required or if the rucksack is to sit directly against the back. Additional back padding (4) makes carrying a tight-fitting rucksack particularly comfortable, the hip strap (5) has been given a very ergonomic design with the new padding, and the curved shoulder straps (6) are made from an extremely light, comfortable material.

Padded Back Vario Carrying System

Compact for Alpine use: The height adjustable Padded Back Vario system displays its advantages with light loads in alpine areas due to its high flexibility and light weight. With the Tatonka ladder adjustment system (1) the shoulder straps (2) can be individually adjusted to the length of your back, and the hip strap (3) can be removed when wearing a climbing harness, which is of particular advantage in alpine use. When affixed to the rucksack, it transfers the load to the hips thanks to its special shape. The elaborately manufactured padding (4) with AirMesh ensures high carrying comfort and good ventilation.

Vent Comfort Carrying System

Comfortable when youre on the move: Especially during active sports the Vent Comfort carrying system provedes pleasant air circulation with its central ventilation channel (1) and an air-permeable AirTex cove. Two foam pads on the sides (2) offer a high level of carrying comfort with this light back construction, their concave shape guarantees optimum load control, even when you″re moving fast. Essential for very active tours when you have a lot of weight on your back it is the waist strap (3), which provides additional stability.
