VAST FORESTS, DESERTED MOUNTAIN

LANDSCAPES, MAGICAL VALLEYS AND LAKES

– WELCOME TO THE FJÄLL


Basically, trekking rucksacks can be divided into three categories:

for very heavy loads, even heavier loads and for insanely heavy

loads // TATONKA has developed the perfect carrying and packing

system for every kilo. But: what is a burden, and what is burdensome?

What gets us in the mood for the great outdoors and

what makes us frustrated? If you decide to embark on a trekking

tour, you will redefine the definition of load for yourself and discover

which and how much material will help you to get started

on your individual dream tour.

Therefore, deciding on the suitable trekking rucksack is important;

the weight that you carry with you is just one criterion

– one of many. It is our individual preferences that have the

biggest influence on the equipment. Preferences for certain

tours, for sleeping in a tent or a lodge, for purist, fast trekking or

for extended tours “with everything but the kitchen sink” on

your back. Ultimately, it is these preferences which define how

much of a load we want to transport. In Sweden in particular,

we were astonished at the extremes we saw: trekkers who

often hurried through several day tours with no more than

12 kg on their backs, including tent, sleeping bag, camping

mat, stove… and the apparently pitiful specimens with huge

freight capacities, who still managed to greet us with a relaxed

“Hej, hej” and were happy to have everything they needed close

to hand. This is why we’d like to pass on our most important

tip to you: make sure you carefully select your partner for your

next tour; it should be suitable for you and your needs as it’s

likely to accompany you for a lifetime.

Sweden is the ideal trekking country. Despite the low altitude

differences, trekking tours require experience and good preparation.

The unfamiliar vastness of the landscape with a rather

sparse infrastructure demands greater loads in your rucksack

and constant physical exertion. If you want to carry your entire

trekking equipment and don’t want it to be a burden, you

should decide on a tried-and-tested carrying system. For the

Kungsleden, we chose the Yukon and Isis rucksacks. The


THE CARRYING SYSTEM PLAYS

AN IMPORTANT ROLE WHEN

TREKKING – BUT THAT'S NOT ALL!

comfortable V2 carrying system stands out with its efficient load distribution, regardless of

whether you’re going uphill or downhill. The filled 18–20 kg rucksacks quickly conform to the

shape of the carrier’s body to form one unit. Only when we take them off do we become aware of

how much weight we have been humping around during the long one-day tour.

For an extra long phase of the one-day hiking tour, we changed over to the Bison 90 and greatly

increased the weight of our load. The Bison’s X1 high-end carrying system was specially

designed for loads greater than 25 kg. Here, the two ergonomically curved, X-shaped crossed aluminium

rods do all of the hard work for you and channel the majority of the carrying load into the

specially padded hip strap; ideal for long routes where a lot of baggage is required.

On another tour, we chose the light trekking rucksacks Luna and Crest and circumnavigated

the Kebnekaise glacier in just two days instead of three and a half, and with equipment that

allowed for all types of weather. The X Lite Vario carrying system fulfils the wish for light

luggage with plenty of room for movement.

Bison 75 / 90 The specialist for heavy loads over 20 kg. There’s a reason

why TATONKA is named after the ‘Bison’. And it also explains why we invest our whole

know-how and lifeblood to be able to present you with the king of all trekking rucksacks.

The Bison is especially designed for long trekking tours with lots of luggage and is

divided into three sections with the lid, main and base compartments. With the wide

front opening with concealed zip fastener, it can be comfortably packed from the front.

The adjustable X1 carrying system excellently fi ts onto the back with soft, ergonomically

shaped shoulder straps and comfortable back padding and it also ideally distributes the

weight, thereby making it possible to carry even the heaviest loads. Its features include

a height-adjustable lid and three contact points for the precise adjustment of the load control

strap, an ice pick holder, an extra compartment for a fi rst aid kit and of course also

a rain cover, which protects the contents from dampness, dirt and dust. So you can see

that the Bison really does have everything you could possible need on a trekking tour,

minus the extra weight.

Tana 60 The top TATONKA trekking model for ladies. In terms of features, Tana

is the carbon-copy of the legendary Bison and is designed for carrying heavy loads during

long trekking tours. Thanks to the adjustable back length, the more curved shoulder

strap and the conically shaped hip strap, the X1 carrying system is perfectly tailored

to the female anatomy and sits well on the hips. With its excellent load transfer, carrying

is a lot more enjoyable. The padded back also ensures good carrying comfort. The countless

features offer a variety of attachment possibilities for important trekking accessories.

Tana is made of robust Rugg Tex material and the tried-and-tested texamide.

Lastenkraxe The strongest TATONKA carrying system for loads of up to 50 kg. The Carrier Frame is the

most original and hardest working of all back carrying systems – and with the adjustable V2 carrying system, also

one of the most effective. This is why you can even lift its maximum weight of 50 kg with ease. After all, its welded

outer frame is made of aluminium and four diagonal cross bars make it extremely sturdy. The integrated stand

ensures that even once you’ve put it down, everything will stay in place.

Yukon 50 / 60 / 70 Trekking rucksack with V2 carrying system for

outstanding load control. The proven, adjustable V2 carrying system of the Yukon

has rubberised lumbar padding in the middle, which ideally keeps the load on the hips.

The heat-regulating Airmesh padding on the back guarantees high carrying comfort with

effective ventilation; load control straps and 3-point tension system on the hip strap make

it highly variable and stable. The spacious zip-up side pocket with expansion pleat and

another side pocket offer additional storage space. Yukon is available in three sizes, with

Crest 40 / 50 Light trekking rucksack in two sizes. As well as its light

weight and the X Lite Vario carrying system that can be individually adjusted to different

back lengths, the Crest mainly stands out with its V-shape that is narrower at the bottom

and therefore guarantees optimum weight distribution and freedom of movement.

And that’s not all: the front zipped access to the main compartment is the fast alternative

to opening the lid and the defl ected adjustment mechanism of the hip strap makes adjustments

even easier. A pocket is also integrated into the hip strap of the Crest – for tissues,

wallet and other small items that need to be accessed quickly. The concave-shaped back

padding also enables you to move freely on tricky terrain. The eye-catching fi rst-aid

compartment in the lid has enough space to hold a corresponding emergency kit.

THERE ARE LOTS OF WAYS TO

SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, BUT

THERE’S ONLY ONE COMPANION DE -

SIGNED TO ACCOMPANY YOU THERE.

Are you still going on hikes, or are you already making pilgrimages? //

Following in the footsteps of the pilgrims who walked along St. James’

Way, many nature lovers embark on the journey to Santiago de Compostela,

which is often also a journey to find themselves. Pilgrimages are

a very special form of trekking and the demands on the perfect rucksack

differ in terms of size, weight, compartments and features. What

could be more obvious than developing a special rucksack that fulfils

all the wishes of a pilgrim and accompanies hikers on this route? But it

doesn’t always have to be an expedition from pilgrim hostel to pilgrim

hostel: when trekking from mountain lodge to mountain lodge, you’ll

also appreciate the strengths of these two new rucksacks after a long

day’s hike.


Jaca 36 Ladies tour rucksack specially designed for pilgrimages Jaca is the ideal companion on every pilgrim trail where a light trekking

rucksack is required. Thanks to the X-shaped crossed glass fi bre rods, the adjustable X Lite Vario carrying system transfers the load from the shoulders

to the hip strap adapted to the female body and thereby guarantees plenty of carrying comfort, even on long trekking tours. The rucksack’s contents

can be accessed quickly and easily via the front opening into the main compartment. There are attachments for material in the lid and as well as a key

holder inside, there is also a rain cover, which pilgrim hikers will really appreciate. A special feature of the Jaca is the notebook with bookmark, which

is included with every rucksack. Ideal for recording experiences and impressions on paper, which can then be safely stowed away.

Leon 38 The ideal companion for a pilgrimage on St. James’ Way. Leon is a sleek and reliable touring rucksack, especially designed for

the needs of pilgrim travellers. The material mix and above all, the lack of unnecessary features make it particularly light. Despite this, Leon still has

everything you need for your pilgrimage. The adjustable X Light Vario carrying system with concave-shaped back padding and three-part hip strap

ensure that it sits perfectly against the body and that the load is ideally distributed. The large main compartment with front access and detachable base

compartment provide plenty of storage space. Material loops offer additional attachment options. A particularly important feature for pilgrim hikers

is the rain cover in the lid compartment, which reliably protects the rucksack’s contents from damp, dirt and dust. Leon also includes a small notebook,

which is ideal for writing down your experiences and thoughts of the day.
