Daypacks: Sporty all-round talent, including for hiking?

For leisure time, school, college or office, the smart TATONKA daypacks are ideal. They are lightweight, practical and provide enough storage space for all your daily needs, big and small but are they also a good choice for rambling? The carrying system and fittings are important factors for comfort and back relief on your tour.


The days have gone when daypacks were used solely as sporty city bags; they are becoming ever more popular also out in the countryside. Although a daypack is totally suitable for a walk through the forest, for carrying a snack and rain protection – it may not be completely suitable for a whole day or a multi-day tour. A compact backpack features comfortable carrying properties. It has a ventilated back system that ensures that sweat caused through exertion quickly evaporates. This means not only a feeling of carrying comfort, but also ensures the natural cooling function of the body during active physical activity. With its ventilated back systems X Vent Zero and X Vent Zero Plus, Tatonka offers perfect carrying comfort – for an unencumbered experience in nature, full of power and movement.

X Vent Zero: Maximum control and unique lightness

The trend is ever more towards lightweight – particularly also for hiking rucksacks where every gram of weight counts. The revolutionary X Vent Zero back system provides maximum load control and optimum ventilation, though minimum contact with your back. The system can be tightened or loosened easily and steplessly and by removing the X-form fiberglass rods can also be carried with direct back power. It is thus extremely flexible for use on a great variety of tours.

The X Vent Zero back system scores through its minimum contact surface with the back: It has less than half the contact area of traditional systems and heralds the arrival of a new generation of carrying systems. Despite carefully designed material reduction in the back systems, nothing has been reduced in terms of fittings and comfort: The rucksacks Skill und Vento 25, fitted with the X Vent Zero system, have padded side sections and are fitted out completely for even the most demanding hiking tours: Rain cape, net side pockets, a drinks holder system, walking stick holder, compression belts and separate bottom section of the Skill 30 fulfill all needs for outdoor hiking.

Tatonka Skill and Vento 25 are at the moment our trailblazers for lightweight practicality: Thanks to the innovative materials used they are so light that you hardly feel them on your back. In addition, they also offer easy load control and fit so comfortably that you can concentrate entirely on your movements. These two revolutions rucksack models weigh only round about 1000 grams and are of enormous benefit on active walking tours.

X Vent Zero Plus: The variable hiking tour specialist

Some hiking or touring backpacks from Tatonka are equipped with the X Vent Zeor Plus back system: It combines the clever and comfortable load distribution of the well-proven X-systems with agreeable ventilation. The load to be carried is distributed to the sides via the hip belt; depending on whether the rucksack is to be carried directly on the back or with ventilation, the 'net' back can be steplessly tightened or loosened. The X Vent Zero Plus back system is convincing in both models through its high level of carrying comfort.

The sporty backpack for women Glacier Point 40 and the model Kings Peak 45 for men are ideal for active movement use in the countryside. The special carrying system and shape that narrows towards the base enable optimum carrying comfort and maximum freedom of movement. Your hiking gear has plenty of space in Glacier Point 40 and Kings Peak 45; variability is provided by side pockets and volume folds. The drinks system and rain cover in the top section are only two of the highlights that make these both backpacks perfect for multi-day tours. Both models also feature a holder for hiking sticks and loops for holding materials.
