The magazine ‘Outdoor’ tested this season’s top hiking backpacks for their carrying comfort and packing volume. Only four of the ten tested achieved 'best results’ –TATONKA’s Pacy 35 EXP of the current EXPedition range is one of the high flyers!
Pacy 35 EXP – TATONKA's best seller of all alpine rucksacks
TATONKA’s Pacy 35 EXP achieved high marks for criteria such as carrying comfort, practicability and volume/ weight. The robust and durable material mix made of Cordura 700 DEN and Cordura 100 DEN Dobby ensures a high load carrying capacity in proportion to its light weight. TATONKA's best seller among the alpine rucksacks has a capacity of 37 litres and could store an additional 6 litres in the top lid.
Comfortable, practical and durable – The ideal companion on tour
Thanks to the padded back carrying system the Pacy 35 EXP offers individual perfect fit for the carrier. The ergonomically shaped aluminium rod is detachable and can be individually adjusted. This allows the Pacy 35 EXP to carry loads up to 12 kilos, ensuring security and stability. The side compression straps tighten the backpack and therefore act as an ideal volume regulator.
The perfect hiking backpack – Design meets function
Ideal carrying comfort, light weight and plenty of storage room! When planning an intensive day hike or an active weekend trip, you need to trust your equipment. Does your carrying system allow for freedom of movement? How snug does the backpack sit on your back? How stable and comfortable does the weight get distributed and controlled?
Vital factors - Carrying comfort and stability
Your hiking backpack has to tick the right boxes: security, balanced fit, excellent load control and high carrying comfort with extra padding – all at the same time! Weight should not directly sit on your shoulders and should get evenly distributed via hip and support belts. Air vents and the use of breathable materials, such as mesh, open-pored foam or special back padding offer carrying comfort even during a long hike.
Valuable tips – Make your tour one to remember
No matter what features your backpack offers – if it doesn't fit your back, it will not be able to meet your expectations. Many of TATONKA's backpacks feature an adjustable carrying system that can be regulated to fit your individual back length. TATONKA also offers valuable tips ‘How to best adjust your backpack’, ‘Protect your back when lifting’ and ‘How to adjust shoulder and load control straps’.
