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
. A deck offers the potential for whitewater use but also has its benefits if the weather is cold, wet and miserable.
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.
- 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
The additional storage space makes the Trekraft of the Expedition Line more versatile in use. For trips lasting several days, the additional storage space makes the Trekraft of the Expedition Line interesting. Both whitewater and calm water trips are possible.
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.
