11.07.2018 (Edited 25.07.2018)

Consider this a preliminary review on the frame only as I only got the frame for now, will update later when I assemble a rucksack and get to use it.



I can only vouch for the craftsmanship on the frame, a prime example of the black art which is tig welding thin-walled aluminium tubing.

The bending of said thin-walled tubing is also outstanding, besides some creasing on the top bar for the load lifters, but that is nitpicking.

Tabs for the load lifters are riveted on, but I don't see that as an issue.

Everything is well finished in smooth powder coating and top and bottom of the main tubes have plastic caps.

The frame is well thought out ergonomically and as far as I can see befits the reason I bought it, modularity.

Total weight is according to my cheap luggage scale 700 grams.



I had a plan of making my own frame, but considering price of material and trial and error, this is a cheaper option.

For now I will use FILBE pack and straps on it and may consider upgrading to Särmä stuff in the future, not much more expensive than what I've paid for the surplus stuff really, but will make do for now.

Update 23.07.18
The frame is 6 cm wider than the sleeve on the FILBE, so some straightforward modification with a sewing machine, some straps and buckles is needed. The sleeve itself fits nicely between the post on the frame, so I cut it open, sewed on straps I routed around and back onto the sleeve.
Everything else; harness, belt, main sack is a breeze and is almost tailor made.
