TASMANIAN TIGER – a fitting name. Info from TT:
The TASMANIAN TIGER was the largest carnivorous marsupial on the Australian continent. It was about the size of a small wolf and owes its name “TASMANIAN TIGER” to its striped coat which served as camouflage. The animal was a predator – not very fast but extremely persevering – and followed up on its prey at night, chasing it down until it was exhausted so it could finally snatch it. Equipped with a superior set of teeth and a mouth which it could open up to 180 degrees, the animal showed no mercy for its prey.
The TASMANIAN TIGER is said to be extinct on the Australian continent since the 1930s; the last species lived on the island of Tasmania. In 1966, a large sanctuary had been opened to provide them with a retreat area, and to preserve the species. No TASMANIAN TIGER has been sighted since, but quite a few people believe that the animal has managed to survive in this sanctuary, having escaped discovery.
In this mythical legend, the specific attributes of the animal – will to survive, hunting instinct, perfect camouflage, cleverness, strength and perseverance – manifests itself. These attributes have prompted us to give our products the name TASMANIAN TIGER.
The TASMANIAN TIGER brand is now a well-known manufacturer of equipment and gear for military and police tactical forces. Within six years, TASMANIAN TIGER brand has established itself as one of the top suppliers of professional equipment and gear.
TASMANIAN TIGER has made its mark in particular with backpacks for different fields of use. Whether it‘s backpacks for individual combatants on mission for several weeks, backpacks for snipers with quick-release system, large backpacks for transport, technically sophisticated first aid backpacks or functional backpacks for daytime use – TASMANIAN TIGER offers the proper model for every field of application. Technically mature carrying systems, specially developed for heavy loads (X1-System) or for friction-locked carrying during movement- intensive activities (X Lite Vario-System) turn the TASMANIAN TIGER backpacks into absolute high-end products. In the development of this gear, TASMANIAN TIGER benefits from the sister company TATONKA which has a track record of experience in the design and manufacturing of backpacks and development of high-performance carrying systems spanning over several decades. TASMANIAN TIGER is building on these experiences and is thus able to offer ergonomically well thought-out backpacks with perfect fit and superior carrying comfort.
The TASMANIAN TIGER line today includes an extensive collection equipment for tactical applications, police operations or gear for outdoor use.
