Robust materials and a high level of wearing comfort make the Expedition Life a real winner

Robustness and wearing comfort are just two of the quality criteria that set TATONKA products apart: Over 15 years of outdoor experience and collaboration with reputable material manufacturers produce high-quality equipment capable of withstanding any challenge on tour. With Cordura Brand Fabric, TATONKA has taken a powerful partner on board.

Cordura Brand Fabric stands for performance, resilience and reliability – precisely those qualities that make TATONKA products indispensable companions on your Expedition Life. That’s why the manufacturer of outdoor equipment is happy to rely on robust materials like Cordura 700 DEN and Cordura 100 DEN Dobby in heavy-duty products such as trekking backpacks, alpine backpacks and holdalls.

The Bison 75 EXP trekking backpack, the Pacy 35 EXP alpine backpack and the Barrel EXP holdall, which is also available in size XL, are typically representative of a multitude of TATONKA products in which Cordura materials combine strength with outstanding wear qualities. 
 

Material science:

Cordura 100 DEN Dobby
Lightweight materials need thin fibres. Stable fabrics need high-strength fibres. It therefore makes sense to use 100-denier Cordura fibre. To improve the tear resistance even further, however, TATONKA insisted on making the impossible possible: thanks to the PU/silicon coating, the resistance is increased by around 20%.Cordura 700 DEN


Cordura 700 DEN
700-denier CORDURA combines the high abrasion resistance and tear strength of the classic 1000-denier weave with the low weight of the 500-denier fabric. TATONKA uses this material for its high-end trekking backpacks. Lightweight materials need thin fibres. Stable fabrics need high-strength fibres. It therefore makes sense to use 100-denier Cordura fibre. Thanks to the PU/silicon coating, the tear resistance is further increased by around 20%.
