Finnish M05 rucksack cover, winter
The latest issue Finnish army backpack snow cover. Excellent, high quality kit from the experts of winter warfare. Protects your pack from both snow and rain but also any prying eyes that may be watching.
The size is generous, this thing is designed to fit over the standard issue M05 backpack (roughly 30 litres) with added sleeping mat and side pouches. The photos were taken with a Savotta Rajapartio ruck which still left some extra space over. This should fit over a bit larger rucksack too provided it's not overpacked.
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.

Received the item, it is well made.
The color is more a off-white. The size indeed is large, perhaps too large for a backpack without any side pouches. They designed the cover using elastics that (perhaps) wear over time. And are difficult to change, a simple loop and rope would do as fine and more easy to maintain.
