TATONKA's Bison and the Tana: The trekking flagships

The bison is heraldic animal and name giver of TATONKA at once. "Tatonka" translates to bison and symbolises strength, reliability and consistency. So it's no surprise that the premium trekking backpack was named after the robust patron: The TATONKA-Bison is designed for loads over 25 kg and for long trekking tours. Its partner, Tana, impresses with the same features and takes the female body structure into account.
It is reliable, robust and weighs just enough as its strength requires. The TATONKA Bison is to a great extend made of the extremely wear-and-tear-resistant material Cordura. Its compartments are divided into main compartment, lid pocket and bottom compartment. This makes packing easy and grants clearness. The wide opening on the front is covered with a zipper to guarantee quick access to all travel utensils at any time.

When a tour lasts for several days, you'll have a lot to carry. Thanks to the X1 Carrying System, which can be adjusted to different back lengths, the load is ideally distributed over the back: The x-shaped construction diverts part of the load to the anatomically fitting and therefore very comfortable hip strap. This way, the back is relieved of some of the load as it is shifted to the hips. The hip strap, the load control straps and the soft, ergonomic shoulder straps can easily be adjusted and make a fitting and individual setting of the carrying system possible. The Bison is available in the designs 75 and 90l as well as in the special EXP version. The test portal "Koffertests" put the Bison to the test.

TATONKA presents the Tana 60 for female trekking fans. It has the same advantages regarding durability and material properties as the men's model Bison. But is is especially designed for the female body. The shoulder straps are stronger curved, the hip strap has a stronger conical form as required by the female pelvic shape.
