It's a good idea to start the autumn season by purchasing a new backpack, regardless if this is a utilitarian "I need a solid good pack" or "AAAH, AAAH, gotta have that or I'll DIE!" mentality.
We embrace them both: the British army patrol pack ticks the first box, while the Romanian army vintage ruck scratches the sweet sickness we all have.
Where are Jorma's sacks?
Jorma is silent. Don't expect game from the forest if you're rustling and swishing about. The fabric is also resistant to water, dirt and oils.
Jorma has no sacks. We omitted all lower pockets to make wearing the hip belt of your backpack more comfortable. You can also choose to wear an equipment belt over the jacket.
Jorma lets you speak. The chest pockets are designed for a hunting radio and are symmetric on both sides. Southpaws, you're welcome! The tops feature antenna passages, which are cleverly hidden when not in use.
We shot a series of videos featuring our new Jorma hunting suit. Just replace "Jorma" with "Dick" and you get the point.

Army tales: Offshore March and Shelter exerciseGarrisons - especially in countries with conscription - are a wonderful cross-section of societies. You'll meet so many different people from different backgrounds.
Army tales: Missing Item ReportThe mandatory military service in the Finnish Defence Forces was never really an issue or a big deal for me before it began. To the last minute, I postponed my decision to either go and do some time in Finnish correctional facilities, also known as jail time, or just “doing my time”.
Army tales: An APC driver's porcelain dreamNot many people can resist the attraction of a figurative low part of a fence. (A common idiom in Finnish for following the path of the least resistance - editor's note.) Vehicle drivers in armed forces are rather familiar with this concept. It was a cold mid-winter in early 2004, which meant that there was less service before us than behind, but we weren't exactly close to the end either. Our service time as conscripts in the Rapid Deployment Force would be from July 2003 to July 2004.
Army tales: Full Moon in KiikalaThe year was 2008 and our NCO class was training in Kiikala around a small airfield. It was late winter, there was very little snow left and most of the day was pitch dark. We had our foxholes dug and our platoon was positioned to defend a forest next to the airfield. Amongst conscripts, Kiikala has a notorious reputation of having shitty or abnormal weather conditions.
