Savotta Hikimaja sauna with stove and stone rack

Savotta Hikimaja sauna with stove and stone rack

"Hikimaja" is essentially an easily transportable sauna for a few people. Trust us Finns on this, you'll get some pretty hot steams in here. Complete with a stove and stone rack!

Let's just go ahead and say that this is the best surplus rucksack there is. Very simple, rugged, just the right size for general use, and if it breaks, we'll give you another one.

Yes, that's right, if it breaks, we'll send you a new one, offer stands for as long as there is supply. No worries, there are still issued in BW, and since this is a showpiece of German quality, it just won't break. We've been selling tens of thousands of these since 2003, and there hasn't been need to send many replacements.

Originally issued to mountain troops, this has been a standard issue day pack for all branches after the infantry finally stopped using it's WW1 heritage hook-to-the-combat-webbing monstrosity.

Basically this is a normal-sized backpack, with two outer compartments and a load of loops for securing additional gear to it. The genius of it all lies (again) in German engineering - although this pack does not have a frame, the Bundeswehr issue folding sleeping mat slips into a separate pouch and keeps the pack rigid and makes it really comfortable to carry. This also eliminates the need to carry a traditional roll-mat outside the pack, essentially allowing more stuff to be strapped on if needed.

All buckles are freely adjustable. The side pouches are sewn on only from the sides, so carrying skis, an axe or a pick is not a problem either. The shoulder straps are padded and can be quickly tightened by pulling the loose ends. Newer buckles are designed so that you can fold them over the straps for quick length adjustment.

Volume 33 litres (2014 cubic inches), extreme measurements 48 x 45 x 23 cm, width without side pockets 30 cm. It's sized as a day pack.

Condition

These are used Bundeswehr surplus, and the use might show. THIS IS A GOOD THING, since there are loads of Chinese knock-offs around too. Even if you get a ruck that clearly has seen some action, it'll still probably outlast you.

Ylivoimaisesti paras päiväreppu ja kun ei kanniskella tolkutonta massaa. Läppärikin sujahtaa hyvin suojattuun paikkaan makuualustan viereen. 5/5, ehdottomasti. Itselläni toinen tasku vähän repsottaa, alhaalta saumat ovat hiljalleen aukeamassa, ja kiristysnaru on pitänyt vaihtaa (kun entinen kului loppuun kauan ennen kuin reppu alkoi kulua). Jos tässä on se takuu voimassa, niin vaihdan ehjempään kun käyn Lekassa seuraavan kerran ja kehun somessa mielelläni lisää!

I'm back for seconds,simply a bitchin ruck!! The folks who made these are long gone, and they're not coming back. Absolutely get the folding pad also. It's not an expedition ruck, but for bumming around or about anything else, it's perfect. This quality at this price only happens at Varusteleka....

Probably the best small pack money can buy. Absolutely bombproof, this ruck was my companion while hitchhiking (and often just hiking) across the United States for the whole month of April '16, across forests, deserts, blizzards, mountains, cities, you name it - and is ready for more. It's not a large expedition pack so I did have to do without some items of snivel kit, but never was I lacking anything essential. The folding mat's ability really came in handy for maximizing space. A little tip - you can easily carry a kit roll lashed to the top via two BW utility straps threaded through the D-rings.
If you're in need of a cheap, utilitarian, indestructible pack for any task whatsoever, and can live without a huge capacity, stop reading these reviews and BUY ONE.

Great pack, especially for less than $30 US. Remarkably comfortable with the sleeping mat inserted. Very simple, ultra robust pack that is perfect for a day pack or a night or 2 in the field. For more than 3 nights you will probably need a larger pack. The customer service at Varusteleka is second to none and there shipping is incredibly reasonable. Also, the descriptions of the products understate their condition. I have purchased 3 packs that were called serviceable. All 3 packs look and function almost like brand new, the wear being so minor as to be negligible/nonexistent. Buy this pack, you will not be disappointed. The sleeping mat is a must for rigidity and comfort.

Jos edes harkitsee tämän ostoa, kannattaa napata makuualusta heti kyytiin. Bonuksena sama alusta sopii isompaan BW jääkäririnkkaan. Helppoa ja kätevää!

Itse reppu on kyllä melkoinen peto. Kunnon kumitukset ja paksu kangas, isot soljet. Sivutaskut ovat vähän pienenlaiset veden kuljettamiseen, mutta kaikenlainen pikkutilpehööri kyllä menee mukavasti.

Mikään raskaiden kuormien kantamisen ihanneväline ei tämmöinen ole: vaikka viilekkeet on pehmustettu, ei niissä sentään ole liioteltu. Tavallinen tasainen selkäosa ei myöskään anna selän hengittää, kuten monissa moderneissa repuissa. Mutta nämä kun ymmärtää on käsissä todellinen luottopeli. Tilava, kestävä ja yksinkertainen.

Mihin käyttöön? Reissaamiseen, päiväretkille, yön yli reissuille lämpimämmillä ilmoilla. Vähän yllättäen toimi myös viikon mittaisella pyöräretkellä selässä, sisällään vettä ja sade- sun muuta vaatetta ja sen sellaista päivän aikana tarvittavaa. Erityisen kotonaan silloin, kun tavaraa on paljon ja se voidaan siirtää ajoneuvolla paikasta toiseen. Tai silloin, kun tavaraa ei ole kovin paljoa, mutta se on hankalan kokoista (nuotiopannut sun muut) ja sitä pitää viedä pitkälle.

Mistä aloittaisi? Vaikka siitä, ettät tämä on maailman kestävin reppu, mitä voit tähän hintaan saada. Aloitetaan sivutaskuista. Se vetää juuri ja juuri esim. Airamin 0,7 L termarin eli litran vetoiset kenttäpullot eivät valitettavasti mahdu. Sivutaskun ja päälokeron väliin jäävään rakoon voi sujauttaa, vaikka retkikirveen tai muun esineen, joka ei liikkuessa tipahda raosta.
Päälokero on yksi iso tasku, jossa on makuualustaa varten takalokero. Lokeroon menee BW-makuualusta, jonka suosittelen ostamaan repun yhteydessä. Lokeroon mahtuu makuualusta lisäksi 15" läppäri ja pari kirjaa.
Päätyläpässä on neljä D-lenkkiä joihin voi sitoa hihnoilla huovan, pussukan mitä ikinä haluaakaan.
Tässä on siis mainio reppu reissaamiseen, johon saa pakattua kaiken tarpeellisen. Osta vielä kun näitä saa.

Olkahihnat ovat surkean kapeat, siksi vaihdatin omaani suutarilla toisen repun leveämpiin remmeihin, nyt kantaa kivutta 15 kg:n nyyttejä. Lantiovyön ja läpän kiristysremmien soljet ovat surkeat, luistavat koko ajan auki. Mutta MUUTEN reppu on yksi parhaista ja hinta/laatu on paras. Makuualusta selkätaskuun tekee lisää ryhtiä reppuun ja helpottaa pakkaamista/käyttämistä. Kaupan kassalla voi huolettaa heittää ostokset sisään ilman suurempaa järjestelyä, ne mahtuvat kyllä. Sivutaskuun menee 0,7 viskipullo ja sisälle reppuun lava bisseä, juopoille tiedoksi.

Tuntuu vähän turhalta arvostella kyseistä reppua koska sen hienous on niin yleisesti hyväksytty asia jo. Ostin omani kai kuutisen vuotta sitten, ja se on kulkenut selässä täyteen lastattuna niin monta kertaa että kertoja on turha koittaa laskea. Joskus mm. tyhmänä toin täpötäyden repullisen virontuliasisia jääkärirepulla. Kantaja vähän hajosi henkisesti sitä roudatessa, mutta reppu ei tietenkään ollut moksiskaan. Jos repussa haluaa kantaa jotain kulmikasta tai muuten vaan kovaa, suosittelen lämpimästi kuvauksessakin suositellun makuualustan ostamista. Makuualustan taskuun voi tietysti tunkea jotain improvisoituakin pehmustetta, mutta oma kokemukseni on että sellainen lähtee paikoiltaan helposti.
Oma reppuni on ilmeisesti corduraversio, eikä se näytä yhtä päheältä kun paksu puuvilla, mutta perhanan kestävää materiaalia se kyllä on. Omassani ei myöskään ole lannevyötä, mistä olen vähän katkera. Jos ostaisin reppua nyt, katsoisin että saan lannevyöllisen version. Arkikäytössä se olisi tosin varmaankin useammin tiellä kun käytössä.

tl;dr Jos kaipaat reppua joka kestää kovempaa käyttöä kuin omistajansa ja joka näyttää vähän spuudulla tavalla tyylikkäältä, tuskin löydät parempaa diiliä kuin tämä + BW makuualusta.

When i finished my military service 17 years ago and had to give my equipment back, i "lost" (aka kept) 3 things: My boots, my sleeping mat and this rucksack. Believe it or not: Even after all these years this ugly old masterpiece is still rockin'

Kyllä tällä kantaa paut kymmenen kilon ostokset kotia sekä hyvänä että huonona päivänä, kunhan vaan laittaa jotain selän tueksi. Ei tietenkään pakollista, tekee vaan ko. painon raahaamisesta huomattavasti mukavampaa. (No, on tää ollu mukana viikonloppu reissuilla kaupungissa, metässä, lammikoissa uinut, ja muutakin "pientä kivaa", eikä oo ottanu itteensä yhtään.)

Absolutely brilliant rucksack. The one I got looked brand new, and seems like the construction is very good. This quality at such a low price is absolutely brilliant. A must buy for anyone looking for a near enough indestructible rucksack

Perfect bag for the 48h weekend huntingtrip. Stores ammo, food, extra clothes and drinks like a champ. Remember to buy the sleeping mat, it is good for the rest and as a light frame/cushion to the hard stuff that usually lands in the sack. Good fasteners for small game on the pack. Simply brilliant in my book.

Bought one for use as a camping trip/hiking bag and came back for a second to use as a motorcycle bag for long trips. You won't get this kind of quality out of comparably priced big batch retailers. Simplicity, ruggedness, adequate modularity, and plenty of room - the sleeping mat is a must!

honestly this backpack just takes the cake, it as tons of space for what it is, at an amazing price. i use this, as the name suggests, for mountain climbing and its just perfect, it can hold a ton of weight and the straps are extremely comfortable for what it is, the to pockets on the side are very useful, but difficult to fill when the main compartment is already full. it comes with a patch of Velcro at the top for a name patch, and a compartment in the main space to store a BW folding sleeping mat, which i highly recommend as it can even be used to stop you ass from getting wet when you take a break and adds amazing support and comfort to the back of the pack. be aware that some items may still be in the backpack from the previous owner, as i got a free sports bra inside mine, but unfortunately did not fit me. please note that the straps are difficult to adjust as you need to tighten them to get them loose, but it means that they absolutely wont come free when using the backpack. unbelievable quality, outstanding price, GET THIS

Lyhyesti ihan helvetin hyvä reppu kaikenlaiseen retkeilyyn ja spurguiluun.
Tuo lantiovyö nyt on vähän rempula mutta siitä saa tosi käyttökelposen esimerkiks niillä saksalaisten omilla viilekepehmusteilla.

Suht' tuhoutumattoman oloinen tekele. Välillä on ollut epäilyksiä, että miten kama mahtuu suipon muodon takia, mutta kyllä tuohon tuntuu menevän useimmissa harrasteissa tärkeimmät asiat. Ei ehkä ihan mahdottomin ylipakkausihme, mutta toisaalta hyvittää sitten mahdottomassa kestävyydessä tämän seikan.

I acquired a unissued pack 17 years ago. It has faded, one Velcro strap in the pad pocket needs sewing and a small corner of the rubberized base has worn away. I have carried it daily in town and outdoors with everything from an Easter ham to a 72 hour kit.
An idiot on a mini bike came roaring down the sidewalk swearing at me to get the fuck out of HIS way. I did, and hit him with the ruck holding a gallon of milk and 20 cans of cat food. He crashed, I walked on without so much as a dented can or of drop spilled milk.

Great backpack and best budget choice you can get. Easily worth many time it's price!
Ordered for my family as BOBs. But they were the perfect daypacks. I combined it with the BW folding sleepingmat and it's a must for anyone!
It's been with me for outings and is my first choice as a hunting pack.
Was unfortunate to rip one of the lower fittings to the shoulder strap. A few minutes with nail and thread fixed it.
