A simple day pack of the Finnish Airborne Jaegers (LJK). If you're looking for an outdoors and everyday pack for the rest of your life, the Backpack 202, as the manufacturer calls it, is a bombproof choice!

The idea is to carry this pack empty in a large rucksack and take it out for short patrols. As this little pack is intended to carry anything from lightweight recce equipment to radios and even anti tank mines (10 kg each), it is ultra-tough. It is still very streamlined and lightweight, so it makes for an excellent everyday backpack.

Simplicity is bliss

All features and the lack of some are dictated by function and necessity. The result is light, simple and durable.

Two compartments, one large and one small, both close with heavy-duty zippers. No dividers or sleeves or pockets inside. Small items go into the smaller compartment.

Simple, adjustable shoulder straps with durable ladderlock buckles and carrying handles on top.

Note! The shoulder straps are not quick-adjustable. To provide a strong setting that doesn't shift, the webbing is first weaved through the ladderlock once. After adjusting the length, weave the free end of the webbing once more through the free slot to lock it. Watch the video below for an example by the Beard-God from Savotta.

Pro-Tip: The smaller British PLCE Liner Bag is a perfect fit for this backpack. Forget flimsy tote bags and get this eternally durable bag instead!

Pro-Tip 2: If you carry this pack a lot with heavier contents consider these Särmä TST Sling Pads for added comfort. Just note those are sold as single pieces.

The pack is made of PU coated 1000D Cordura with IRR treatment and meets Finnish army military specs.

  • Dimensions approx. 42 x 27 x 15 cm. Official volume 15 litres but might be more in reality.
  • Warranty and guarantee

    The product has a 2-year warranty against material and manufacturing defects.

    Tämän repun kestävyys on sitä luokkaa, mitä sen pitäisikin olla. Kunhan tiedostaa tilan rajallisuuden pakatessa niin ainoa ongelma löytyy olkahihnoista, jotka ehdottomasti tarvitsevat pehmusteet.

    Hyvä reppu jonne sain mahtumaan talvimakuupussin, riippumaton ja ruokaa sekä pakin. Kun tähän lisää rintaremmin ja pehmusteet on reppu aika tosi hitsin hyvä.

    edit. On tullu nyt raahattua tätä reppua pitkin maailmaa ja kotimaata talvella,syksyllä,keväällä ja kesällä. Eihän toi näytä mitenään ihmeelliseltä repulta,tollanen,noh,reppu. Mut se minkä nyt voi sanoo kokemuksella on että jumanlavita toi syö tavaraa enemmän sisuksiinsa kun äkkiseltään uskois. Itelle ollu sopivan kokonen reppu reissailuun maailmalla ja saanu mahtuun kaiken mitä tarvii iisisti. Kaikki mun muut kettureput ym ei vaan jotenkin toimita samaa tyydyttävää pakkausautismin täyttymystä kun tää savotta 202. Olkoonkin noin yksinkertanen löysä nyssäkkä vaan. Eikä tän kanssa oo tarvinu pelätä että menee vetskari vaikka hajalle,ei saletisti mee,sen verran laatua on (kopkop silti). Ei tässä repussa pitäs olla mitään ihmeellistä mikä tekee siitä omiin tarpeisiin paremman kun kaikki mun muut reput,mut se vaan on. parempi. Yksinkertainen on kaunista. Eikä oo pelkoo et tarvis miettii mihin taskuun on laittanu mitäkin,on vaan 2. Mut juu,näin pitkän testailun jälkeen voin suositella tätä, ei mitenkään ulospäin ihmeellistä mutta käytännössä asiansa ajavaa nyssäkkää lämmöllä. Kiitos Savotalle!

    Loistava reppu. Ottaa sisäänsä parin päivän puska-reissuun tarvittavat materiaalit ja voi luottaa että kestää reissun "haasteet". Itselle laitoin hihnoihin pehmusteet ja askartelin hihnanauhasta ja muovilukoista systeemin joka mahdollistaa taakan ja kantajan pika-eron ilman lapajättiläisiä ja muita merkkisuorituksia.

    I purchased this bag around 5 months ago and so far so good.
    The quality is excellent and its fully water proof its also very spacious, much more than expected.

    I use the bag every single day for school to carry my books along with other stuff when i go hiking with friends.

    I have a slight problem with the straps being undone after a week or so of use but I suppose its my fault as I leave my bag hanging low.

    Absolutely would recommend this product and definitely worth the price

    Olkahihnat luisuvat irti repun alaosan kiinnittimistä jos reppu täynnä tai pitkä kävelymatka. Hihna siis irtoaa. Alussa vetoketjut todella jäykät. Pakkasella repun materiaali muuttuu jäykäksi ja vetoketjuja todella hankala avata. Muuten ok.

    In this day and age where rucksacks do everything for you save make the tea, this is a return to times when things were much much simpler.

    The 202 is a Small Tough Bag, with basic shoulder straps and a couple of handles. I know a lot of bags claim to be tough - I've a Tactical Tailor Fight Lite bag . .that's quite tough, but it looks like a cissy compared to the 202. The 1000D Cordura is supple and super strong and the PUR coating will ensure that your things stay pretty dry.

    The zips were quite harsh initially but after a few zipping sessions they've smoothed out nicely. I did add some paracord pulls to them, and that has helped with the pulling - I can understand why they're not fitted as standard - last thing you want as a combat troop is some pulls catching on vegetation or aircraft bits . . but for an urbanite like me that's not a problem.

    I was really surprised at how comfortable the straps are - they sit perfectly, and in a hike back from the supermarket filled with tins, the bag carried very well. Yeah my back got hot and sweaty, but the tins seemed to bed themselves down in the bottom of the bag and rested against the base of my spine - it was surprisingly comfortable, and when I took my coat off and stuffed that in, it softened things even more to the extent where I wondered whether the whole back system thing on must packs is a bit over the top . .

    Anyway, that's about it - I've no doubt this bag will see me out. In fact my son has pinched it as a daysack for a carry as little as possible 2 week road trip across Europe - he says it'll fit in his duffle nicely, and I guess that's the whole point of it.

    Oh and my final point - the price of the 202 is pretty astonishing - you know you could buy a Adidas or Nike or, well, you know, cheap Chinese shite bag for not much less . . . with the 202 you are buying something made with INTEGRITY and inspected by real human beings who aren't afraid to sign their names on the inspection tag, because they're proud of what they produce.



    Sigh . . if only the rest of the world was like that . . .



    Thanks for reading!
