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 Exact Fit harness is the only choice for many outdoor professionals. Available in eight fits and three back lengths, there is a combination to suit every body. The hand-shaped alloy frames, contoured shoulder straps, and heavy-duty load-bearing hipbelt will not distort even under extreme loads. The women’s harnesses feature specially sculpted hipbelts and shoulder straps to better match the female form. So whether you’re shaped like a supermodel or your mum, with a One Planet rucksack you’ll get a comfortable fit.
Adjustments to the back length, shoulder straps and hipbelt are easily made while the pack is on your back, so the harness fits exactly, all of the time.
Limit of comfort: whatever you can handle!
For further details of all harness components see our technical information page.
The length of your back needs to be matched by a pack with a suitable frame length.
One Planet packs with the Exact Fit harness are available in three frame lengths: short, medium and long. As a general rule, most women have a short or medium back length, while most men have a medium or long back length. It can be difficult to measure your back length accurately: it is a good idea to visit a One Planet dealer to obtain a perfect fit.
All One Planet dealers are trained in measuring and fitting our harness systems, enabling an Exact Fit. We can even mix-and-match harness components to get it right. It’s just another benefit of making our gear in Australia.
The Exact Fit Harness is endorsed by the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia.
To ensure the best possible pack fit, visit an authorised dealer. Alternatively you can supply the following size details:
- C7 to iliac crest measurement (cm)
Measure the vertical distance from the C7 vertebra, (which is found roughly level with the shoulder and protrudes when you tilt your head forward) to the center point of your iliac crests. The iliac crest is the high point of the hip bones.
- Chest circumference measurement (cm)
- Hip circumference measurement (cm)
- Height (cm)
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.
