Price 261.99 USD excluding VAT

The official combat vest base of the Finnish army, newest model. The high price tag hides behind a vest that meets military specifications. No wonder, as the same manufacturer makes these for the army.

The official combat vest base of the Finnish army, newest model. The high price tag hides behind a vest that meets military specifications. No wonder, as the same manufacturer makes these for the army.

Note:

the pouches seen in the extra picture are not included.

Essentially, this is a somewhat ordinary vest base. On the outside you will find:

  • All available space filled with PALS loops.
  • Closure with four plastic (ITW Nexus) buckles.
  • Side adjustment with elastic cords. Now, here's the big plus: these can be adjusted a lot, so the Small-Medium vest will snugly fit even the smaller users, a rarity in these type of vests.
  • Friction pads, sling/shoulder strap stoppers and velcro loops at both shoulders - the vest is lefty-compatible as well. Drinking tube can be secured through the velcro loops.
  • Reflective tag on the neck. Can be hidden, if not needed.

On the inside:

  • Belt loops for the M05 belt. Of course, most will fit through but the heavy duty M05 belt works best.
  • Flat document pockets with velcro closure on both sides of the front panels.
  • A pocket for a hydration system on the back panel. Most 2-3 l bladders should fit.
  • A small window for a name tag.
  • Carrying handle in the neck, evacuation/dragging handles in the armpits. Do not use the neck handle for dragging.

Made of military-grade Cordura, with PU-coating on the inside. The quality is excellent overall, as should be expected.

Made by Finn-Savotta Oy

Founded in 1955 Finn-Savotta, or just Savotta, is known for their simplistic and extremely rugged designs. For decades Savotta has been the go-to supplier of hiking gear for the Finnish civilian market and combat gear and tents for the defence forces.

Today Savotta operates two factories, one in Karstula, Finland, where they make all their tents and metal components and one in Estonia where they do about 50% of their sewing.

Muuten hyvä kantolaite, mutta jostain syystä joku älypää on keksinyt että päällystetään ylävartalon peittävä varuste polyuretaanilla (eli materiaalilla jonka hengittävyys 0.0%).

Muuten konseptina ok, taskuja saa minne vaan ja kestää varmaan ydinlatauksenkin. Vyö melkeinpä ehdoton.
