BACKPACKS AND RUCKSACKS

We have all kinds of backpacks and rucksack for day trips, several week hikes and everything in between. Some of our basic military backpacks are made for almost every situation. Take a look at Särmä Assault Pack. It's a great army backpack for everyday use and fits well for hand luggage to an airplane when traveling. It comes in black, green and brown colours.

We also have army surplus rucksacks and backpacks, which means guaranteed high quality for a relatively low price. Too good to be true? Not at all.

Varusteleka’s own production offers military backpacks and rucksacks Särmä and Jämä categories.

The size often defines a backpack's purpose of use. In that sense, our category is vast because the sizes our backpacks and rucksacks volumes vary from a few litres drawstring bags to over 100 litres rucksacks. We also have rucksacks with and without frame.

VOLUME

As said, bags, backpacks, and rucksacks vary with their features and volumes. Usually, different sized bags are “meant” to use on different things. We gathered a little guide to help you pick a size for your needs:

  • 15-20 litre bags fits for school bags or for a regular use
  • 20-45 litre backpacks are starting to have enough space for a daytrip. This size is also perfect for airplane hand luggage
  • 50-65 litre backpack or rucksack is perfect for short, for example 3 days, hiking trips
  • 70-100+ litre rucksack is a good choice for a week or longer hikes

Sure, the need for a bag volume is individual for everyone. Someone more experienced ranger may need less space for their bags than someone less experienced. The list above is just a directional guideline to follow if you ponder between sizes.

HIKING & BACKPACKING

Well fitting rucksack is vital when you're hiking or backpacking because when you have a lot of weight on your back while walking long distances, it's oddly comforting to have a bag which doesn't abrade your hips or push shoulders. Hiking is a sport where it's worth it to have quality equipment, and there is nothing wrong with that! By investing for proper, long-lasting equipment once, you'll save money in the long run.
