The Tarkine is an unmatched expedition pack for antipodean conditions, designed to meet the classic bushwalkers’ needs and the modern trampers’ wants. It is an updated, large-capacity rucksack for outdoor professionals, sporting the comfort and adjustability of the Exact Fit harness, a Waterloc® canvas body for water-resistance and incredible durability. Cordura ® nylon is used to reinforce high-wear areas, whilst the clean, scrub-friendly design ensures your rucksack doesn’t catch on trees, shrubs, rocks or trailers.
This toughness is complemented by a larger, zipped front pocket with improved access on the side, making it easier to reach important gear and use the whole space. Both the side and lid compression-straps double as gear attachment points, giving versatility when carrying equipment necessary for a specific trip. The side compression-straps have side-release buckles, while the ones on the lid have an innovative governor to stop the buckles dangling in the dirt and keep your gear secure, even when accessing the rucksack’s contents. The snow-shovel pocket and shock cord are on the front, but the front pocket is accessible even with equipment attached.
There are clever pockets: a zipped one in the large, floating lid, as well as dual water bottle pockets beside the lumbar pad for easy reach. Under the lid, the throat compression-strap keeps your gear snug and ensures you have enough space for a broad-brimmed hat. (Yep, we’re Aussie.) Extra add-ons like the Trash & Treasure and Hipbelt Pocket increase space and functionality. All in all, the Tarkine is a rucksack built for exploring the wilderness landscapes, so get out there and discover it!
The Tarkine is the choice of antipodean outdoor professionals, and perfect for long expeditions.

Waterloc® canvas (approximately 390 gsm). A tough, waterproof fabric developed in Australia specifically for One Planet rucksacks. The yarn has a polyester core wrapped in cotton: the core gives the fabric strength, while the cotton expands when moist, filling any microscopic holes and providing superior waterproofing. Waterloc canvas is tightly woven and impregnated with rot inhibitors and waterproofing agents to ensure waterproofness and longevity.
Most pack wear occurs through abrasion so we use Waterloc grid for increased strength. However, we’ve kept the surface smooth: the raised profile of traditional ripstop grids mean the prominent threads get clobbered, creating premature wear.
