Description

Toboggan tanks are essentially a sewn fabric ‘box’ in which to wrap your toboggan load.  They are tidier, and easier to handle than a tarp, with the disadvantage of being less versatile (ie. they will not serve well as a ground tarp in your tent if so desired).

We went all out when designing our tanks: they are made with 1000 denier Cordura in the bottom half for extra durability and 400d Cordura in the top flaps to keep weight as low as possible.

Classic Toboggan Tanks

We selected simple, 1″ steel “g-hook” buckles for light, resilient closures that won’t get brittle in extreme cold temps, and polyester webbing.  Our tanks have a generous overlap of fabric on all four sides, that combined with the simple buckles makes  securing your load before lashing a breeze even with mittens on!  Classic Tanks require an independent lashing system to secure the load to your toboggan.  This comes standard on LotN toboggans, but if you have a toboggan without a lashing system, we can supply that for you as well.

Speed Lash Toboggan Tanks

*NEW* for 2019.  Our speed lash tanks are something that we’ve tested all last winter and are really excited to make available for the 2020 hauling season!  The same body as our Classic Tanks, but with an integrated closure and lashing system that closes the tank and secures it to the toboggan in a simple and efficient process.  Speed lash tanks do not require an independent lashing system to secure the load to your toboggan as this is integrated into the tank itself.

If you’ve got the time, this is best viewed on the second video in the “Video Demonstration” tab.  Or you can check out our Toboggan Outfitting Guide for more information.

Sizing Your Tank:

Tanks are often (but not always) sized to cover all of the ‘soft-goods’ on a toboggan, with the ‘hard-goods’ (like stoves or wannigans) left uncovered, or packed in separate Stove Bags.  As an example, if you are using a 10′ toboggan, you will have ~ 8′ of packable space.  If you plan to place a stove of ~ 2′ length at the front or rear of your toboggan, you will likely want a 6′ tank.  Some travellers (particularly those sharing a large toboggan among two people) like to use two smaller tanks.  The advantage being that both people can keep their gear separate, and the smaller tanks are easier to move about at camp.

    nice video, I like the layers. The military G hooks are great and your top bag is super! when bare handed, do you slip your mitts inside your fleece? I do this often and helps keep my dry mitts warm…. Inspiring use of video and plan to mention your site. happy trails
