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 M pack claimed that prize! Based on the Light Border Patrol Pack the Jaeger M 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.

This model is made of 1000D Foxdura fabric with the Finnish M05 camouflage pattern.

The "Kevyt Rajapartio" evolved

The "Jääkäri" M (Jaeger, traditional prussian name for fighting infantrymen and a title still proudly used in the Finnish military) is based on Savotta's famous "Kevyt Rajapartio" (Light Border Patrol, a daypack developed in the late 90's for our border troops), but just like the Modular LJK was a step up from the original LJK so is the Jaeger M a step up the evolutionary ladder from the Light Border Patrol. The basic starting point is still the same, a narrow, medium sized pack that doesn't interfere with movement in tight spaces or heavy woodlands.

The main changes include the swapping of all old metal buckles for quality ITW Nexus Delrin plastic buckles, the addition of PALS webbing to all sides of the back and deleting ye olde thermos flask holder for a modern hydration bladder pouch. On top of that the updated lid and strap construction makes overpacking and compression far better than before. The end result is a high quality modern daypack that performs equally well in daily urban use as it does on 24-48h or longer hikes and missions.

Features

  • Dimensions approx 55 x 27 x 20 cm, volume roughly 30 litres (not counting overpacking). Weight roughly 2 kg.
  • Large main compartment, covered by a tightly shaped flap and waterproof drawcord collar.
  • The flap is a floating lid, it can be raised from the neck if you need to overpack the pack or carry large bundles on the top.
  • Inside the flap is a zipper pouch for valuables etc.
  • The main compartment is also accessible from the side through a long zipper, making pulling out those little trinkets quickly so much easier! The zipper has two pullers so you can open it from any point, bottom, middle or top.
  • Side compression straps with quick side release buckles, compresses the pack to a neat package when half full. These can also be used to strap extra kit to the outside of the pack.
  • Both sides have open pockets on the bottom for securing axe handles, poles etc. These also work for small canteens and flasks, just secure the neck of the bottle with the compression strap.
  • Two webbing loops on the bottom of the back for securing long shovel, pick or axe handles.
  • The straps that close the top lid also run around the bottom of the pack, this helps compress the pack from all sides and also take some of the strain off from the (incredibly tough 1000D Cordura) fabric.
  • Attachment points for utility sraps on the bottom. Excellent place to lash a sleeping mat or bag to.
  • Hydration bladder mesh pouch on the inside against the back. Fits a Source WLPS bladder perfectly.
  • Hydration tube or antenna ports on both sides of the top of the pack.

Carrying system

  • A removeable plastic back support plate in it's own compartment. These are no Matty Mattel craptastic plastic, the same plates have been used on the "Kevyt Rajapartio" pack for decades without problem.
  • Very comfortable, firmly padded back. The straight lines and "boring" rectangular pillows might not look media sexy but they perform very well!
  • Carrying handle on the neck.
  • Anatomic shoulder straps with removeable sternum strap. The shoulder straps have attachment loops for gear such as hydration tubes.
  • A simple yet very functional hip belt with side release buckle. Attachment points for small gear. The belt can be stuffed behind the back pillow when not needed.
  • Materials

    The fabric is PUR coated waterproof and extremely tough 1000D Foxdura. All hardware is military grade too, the buckles are made by ITW Nexus and zippers by Kroko of Belgium. The materials, construction and attention to detail are all top-notch!

    Mainio reppu omiin tarpeisiin. Mukautuu helposti tarpeen mukaan lisätaskuilla. Kuljettaa helposti 3 vrk:n tarpeet ... teltan, kirveen, makuupussin, juomat, muonat, jne. Kokeltu 20kg kokonaispainolla, päiväreissulla ... helppo homma. Lisänä maailman paras ja kaunein kuosi kotosuomen oloihin. ;-)

    Erittäin hyvä reppu, ainakin niille jotka arvostavat pomminvarmaa kestävyyttä enemmän kuin maksimaalista grammanviilausta. Parin päivän kamat menee mukana helposti, lisätaskuilla ja pienellä suunnittelulla enemmänkin - ei tule enää otettua rinkkaa mukaan ellei reissu kestä vähintään viittä päivää. Tukeva ja luonteva selässä vähän isommallakin painolla, eikä sitä tukilevyäkään oikeasti tarvitse, kun paksu cordura ja joka puolelle yltävät nauhakujastot tukevoittavat reppua. Ei ole tullut vielä testattua sitä metallivahvikkeista tukilevyä, mutta voisin kuvitella että sen kanssa kantaa vaikka reppuun ahdetun kääpiön. Vähän tragikoomisesti tuo maastokuvio on metsässä varsinkin vähän hämärämmällä sen verran hyvä että kannattaa olla aika tarkkana mihin repun laskee maahan, jos siis ajatteli vielä löytää sen uudestaan.
