Tatonka’s packs and outdoor products have quickly become a favourite amongst New Zealand hunters, with the Bison one of the most sought-after large packs. Tatonka’s tents are designed with the same focus on providing tough, high tech and high-quality products at reasonable prices.
“The Tatonka name is now synonymous with tough, excellent quality packs that are perfectly suited to New Zealand conditions. Our Facebook page is growing and getting some great feedback from Kiwis – particularly hunters” says Leanne McLeod, Tight Lines’ social media expert. "Therefore, it seems like a great time to introduce the tents.”
All Tatonka tents are fast pitching due to a “multi-pitch” setup, where the inner tent is attached to the fly sheet. If required, the inner tent and fly sheet can be separated either to make a lightweight bivvy, or to keep the inner tent dry when pitching or packing up in wet weather.
The tent floor is made of a tough 70 denier nylon, so there is no need for an extra groundsheet footprint on rough terrains. This in turn eliminates extra gear that may need to be carried with other tent brands.
The Tatonka tent range consists of tunnel tents, which of all the different tent shapes, make the best use of the available space. Tunnel tents also tend to be lighter for their size than other shaped tents. This allows plenty of room to sleep plus storage space. If they are erected correctly (with the narrow side into the wind), tunnel tents are also extremely stable in wind.
“We’re seeing a real ground swell in Tatonka brand loyalty at the moment” Leanne concludes. “It’s great to now be able to offer those enthusiasts somewhere to sleep at night.”
All tents come with Tatonka’s 2-year warranty.
