Särmä Assault Pack

Price 33.99 USD excluding VAT

Good and affordable urban rucksack of our own design - partially, at least. Just enough different compartments, compact dimensions but expands a lot (even further with extra pouches). If you have a lot of stuff that has to be accessed all the time, this is the thing for you.

Good and affordable urban rucksack of our own design - partially, at least. Just enough different compartments, compact dimensions but expands a lot (even further with extra pouches). If you have a lot of stuff that has to be accessed all the time, this is the thing for you.

  • A compact 20 litre (1220 in3) daypack
  • Loads of external attachment possibilities
  • Goes as hand luggage when flying

Our own-production Assault Pack is made simpler and tougher than most of the similar packs of the same price range that are currently on the market. That's because we had these made just for us in large numbers, without any middlemen.


  • Big main compartment with two little compartments inside - the bigger fits an I-pad, the smaller one is zippered to hold all the small things you carry with you. The main compartment has zippers all the way, so getting something out of even a fully packed rucksack is fast and easy.
  • Hydration pack pouch on the inside (hydration bladder not included). If your bladder is too long, just fold it. Source WXP fits well without fiddling.
  • Two outer pockets.
  • Good compression straps, two on each side and two on the underside - this thing can be compressed to the size of a hydration pack. Size compression straps have quick releases, which is a very handy thing. The straps also double as an easy way to strap stuff on to the pack - strapping your jacket onto the pack when moving indoors has never been easier.
  • The pack is covered with PALS attachment loops, both on the front and sides.
  • Shoulder straps are well-padded and contoured. If you don't need the waist strap, it's easily removed.
  • The pack is made out of very sturdy 1000 Denier polyester with PU coating on the inside to increase water repellency. However, this isn't completely waterproof - we recommend using a rain cover if necessary.
  • All the buckles are made by UTX.

Some of the brown assault packs on clearance sale have the other one of the side compression straps sewn c. 5 cm2") lower than the other one, which means that the strap is a bit tilted. It won't matter much unless you really like symmetry. That pain is compensated in the price.

Some color may transfer from the product before the first wash. Machine wash with a delicate program.

Made in China. We give our own productions a one-year warranty.

Pätevä pikkureppu. Sopivasti sopivan kokoisia osioita ja sisäinen juomarakkotasku on fiksu ratkaisu - sinne saa täydemmänkin rakon ilman että reppu tuntuu epämukavalta selkää vasten. Jos tähän jotain haluaisi muuttaa, niin isommassa ulkotaskussakin voisi olla verkkotasku pikkutavaroiden järjestelyyn; lisäksi isossa osiossa olevassa verkkotaskussa voisi olla jonkinlainen kiristys - nyt sen suuaukko roikkuu vähän löysästi ja tavarat meinaavat helposti lipsahtaa sinne jos tunkee vähän huolimattomasti.

Brilliant bag for price

I know this bag is superior to the miltec version (of course) because was sent a red miltec by accident first! Customer service was awesome though and cleared that up.

Bag is exactly what I wanted . Well made, nice features (the velcro'd webbing allows easy tidy) and great price. I've had 30 pound bags from the high street. This is far more up to the challange of a mad Scotsman in mad scots weather.

Great quality, well constructed/thought out bag! Worked great for day to day abuse, worked great being able to pack a 2 weeks kit for outdoor use.

Älyttömän hyvä reppu! Toimii maastossa, kaupungissa ja lentokoneessa. Mukaan mahtuu meikäläisenkii xl-kokosta vaatetta ihan useemmaks päiväks. Plussaa sopivista taskuista ja toimivasta PALS-kujastosta.

Ainoa miinus kiristysremmien pikalukoista jotka tuntuvat pysyvän kiinni lähinnä vaihtelevasti, eli siis aukeavat usein hihnaa kiristäessä. Vähän ärsyttävää, mutta tämän kanssa pystyy elämään.

Hintaisekseen oikein hyvä peli. Pieniä puutteita on ollut muutama: remmien soljet ovat liikkuvaista sorttia, rintaremmissä loppuu säätövara pieneen suuntaan ja sisällä oleva verkkotasku ei pysy yläosastaan ryhdikkäänä.

Remmien ansiosta reppu on sopivan kompakti kaikenlaiseen matkustamiseen halpisbusseissa ja -lentokoneissa, ei vie paljoa tilaa ja tavaraa mahtuu pitkän viikonlopun tarpeisiin niin että jää tuliaisille tilaa; kunhan miettii pakattavat tavarat fiksusti. Mukaan mahtuu myös 13'' läppäri.

Muokkaus 3/18: Reppu jäi lopulta käytöstä, siinä oli kaikenlaista pientä säätöä ja viilailua (alapuolen remmit johon ei saa mitään kiinni, sisäpuolen umpisurkea verkkotasku jne...) joka ei oikeastaan paranna mitään, jos toimii ollenkaan, rupeaa vain ärsyttämään käytössä. *Lisäksi se oli liian pieni useamman ihmisen reissukäyttöön ja liian iso arkiseen työmatkaan.

- virittelyksi menee, mutta nuo sivussa olevat aukeavat pikalukot voi muuttaa metallisiksi
- hihnaan kylläkin reiät, joihin sitten sopivan kokoiset ns. sirkat
- jos haluaa vielä enempi säädellä, voi koko systeemin korvata kapeilla kuorman sidonta liinoilla, niitä varten hyvä omistaa vahva ompelukone
- kokoisekseen tilava, ei herätä pahaa verta pasifisteissa, sekä edullinen
- suositus...:)

This tough little guy works really well in an urban environment and it an ace bag for the price. The compartments are well thought out with just enough space for day trip supplies of food and water or for workwear and a packed lunch. No silly placements of pockets means that it doesn't flap about and sits well on your back. I couple this with the Särmä hooded fleece and if I have something in the back pocket of that then this bag can sit comfortably above the bulge of hat, gloves etc. The straps make this the most tactical bag in this price range, though they seem a little long for compression of a less than full bag, and the velcro is a really neat idea to tidy away the loose ends. The only complaint I have so far is that after a while my back gets sweaty given that there's no real ventilation here but hey, is less than 30 quid so you can't have everything!
