Light, flexible and perfectly equipped: The trekking heroes Norix 50 and Lyid 40

Adventurous tour can be quite a challenge. In order to quickly get moving about and to not carry unnecessary load with you, you need a light yet sturdy backpack. TATONKA has designed the touring backpacks Norix 50 and Lyid 40 especially for short, dynamic tours.
Compared to longer tours, shorter ones stress your backpack differently. When you are on a tour for only a few days, you don't need massive stowage but a light backpack, which can still be loaded. This is the reason why TATONKA combines light design with sturdy materials for their touring backpacks. The Norix 50 is made of T-Square Rip and 450 HD Polyoxford.  The very tight, special weaving method of the 210 den fibres makes the T-Square Rip extremely strong, but it remains light at the same time. The backpack has been designed especially for tours with little luggage thus being equipped with the ultra-light X Light Vario Carrying System for optimum fit against the back. Two fibreglass rods, crossed in x-shape, efficiently divert the load to the ergonomically shaped hip strap and therefore convey the load form the shoulders to the hips.

The light trekking backpack Lyid 40 is just as practical and minimalist but a bit smaller. Just as the Pyrox 45 made of T-Square Rip and 450 HD Polyoxford, the Lyid 40is another lightweight in the latest TATONKA line. Its great user comfort and the X Light Vario Carrying System with its special design focussing on the female anatomy with padded shoulder straps make it a worthwhile and no-fuss tour companion.
