Mil-Tec Field cot, aluminium frame, 192 x 66 x 43 cm, olive drab
An affordable and handy field cot. Similar to the US Army model.
Mil-Tec 3D Hollowfiber sleeping bag
We don't know how they could make this good a sleeping bag for such a low price, and frankly we don't care either. In short, this is a surprisingly high quality three-season bag, complete with a compression sack. A word of warining: if you are big, you will have a hard time fitting inside!
Carinthia Defence 4 sleeping bag
The Defence 4 may be Carinthias best all-around sleeping bag. Designed for cold and nasty weather, it's no surprise that (among others) also the Finnish army adopted this very model! This here is a reliable choice, designed for very demanding use!
Carinthia Defence 1 sleeping bag
The most lightweight bag in the Defence family, the Defence 1 is intended for summer and early autumn/spring, when the temperature stays at or above 0° C. Very lightweight and packs into a super tight bundle!
Finnish Sawu tent stove
The Sawu (as in Savu = Smoke) is an evolution of the standard Finnish military 60´s tent stove. A relatively lightweight and portable little tin bucket. This is really nothing fancy but just about as good a stove as you can get without adding any fancy extra oddities, simple and very user friendly. It is even rahter lightweight, only 6,50 kg!
Savotta Jääkäri backpack, M05 camouflage
For a long time we preached that the "Light Border Patrol" pack was the best Finnish military pack ever. Well, not any more: the Jaeger pack claimed that prize! Based on the Light Border Patrol Pack the Jaeger is a natural heir to the throne, an updated modern daypack, a sturdy one that carries even a few days worth of supplies comfortably. Versatile and incredibly tough, a proper quality pack for demanding use.
Bigger, stronger, better. A field cot with a reinforced construction and large size for taller and heavier fighters.
The model is similar to the US issue field cot with a few minor differences. The frame is aluminium and fabric is nylon. When unfolding and setting up, the fabric is pulled taut by the frame to all directions. Nothing provides better insulation from the cold ground as a foot of air, and bugs won't bother your sleep either. Of course it's just plain more comfortable too.
Assembly begins by unfolding the frame. Two separate end tubes are inserted into channels in the fabric and locked onto metal tabs in the frame. The other tube has two holes for corresponding tabs in one end of the frame, while the other has a spring-loaded tab, which makes the final stage of assembly vastly easier. If you only keep this in mind, assembly will be quick and easy. Disassembly begins by pulling the spring-loaded tab with the locking ring.
This field cot has a known issue with creaking: when the fabric is tensioned and chafes against the frame tubes, it vibrates loudly. This is easily fixed by passing pieces of fabric in between the nylon and aluminium. The sizes needed are roughly 90 x 15 cm (four pcs) for the sides and 60 x 15 cm (two pcs) for the end pieces. You can fix these pieces in place with glue, safety pins or a few stitches.
An assembled field cot measures 210 x 68 x 45 cm (length, width, height) and 100 x 21 x 14 cm when folded. Weight 9.2 kg. Maximum load 150 kg, as stated by the manufacturer. Probably more in reality, but our responsibility ends at 150 kg.
A green carrying bag with handles and zipper is supplied with the cot.
