Nortik Trekraft Expedition (no deck)

The Expedition series of the Nortik Trekrafts with standard integrated zippers to stow your luggage in the tube, which is not susceptible to dirt and wear, because the luggage compartment is separated from the main tube.


The Expedition series from Nortik corresponds to the classic Nortik Trekrafts, but features the possibility to stow luggage in the tubes. Otherwise it is the same base model as the version without sidebags.
 
Construction
 
The Expedition series has two zippers on the inside of the centre tube (see pictures), which separates and forms an integrated pocket behind the zipper, which is to be filled with luggage. The zippers do not have to be air- or watertight, as the luggage compartment is separated from the main tube (see diagrams), thus being insensitive to dirt and use. The zippers themselves are protected from moisture by a cover, keeping the stowed luggage dry inside.
 
Advantages
  • low centre of gravity, protected from wind, rain and splashes, reduces exposure when paddling
  • the system is not dependent on the tightness of the zippers (because it does not need to be due to its principle), thus being insensitive
  • the luggage is positioned in the correct space and secured it from slipping
  • the transport capacity of the boat is considerably increased
Use
 
The additional storage space makes the Trekraft of the Expedition Line more versatile in use. For tours of several days on land and water, the luggage which is not needed during the day can be distributed in the two side pockets.
 
The principle of packraft sidebags with regular zippers like with the Nortik Trekraft Expedtion is simple and economic, thus a good option being on a budget.
