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 pack was formerly known as "Jääkärireppu".

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 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, max volume roughly 30 litres. 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 the same PUR coated waterproof and extremely tough MILSPEC 1000D Cordura used to make Finnish military M05 gear! 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!

Made by Finn-Savotta Oy

Founded in 1955 Finn-Savotta, or just Savotta, is known for their simplistic and extremely rugged designs. For decades Savotta has been the go-to supplier of hiking gear for the Finnish civilian market and combat gear and tents for the defence forces.

Today Savotta operates two factories, one in Karstula, Finland, where they make all their tents and metal components and one in Estonia where they do about 50% of their sewing.

Muuten aikalailla täydellinen, mutta etuosan molle-kujaston alta iloisesti juoksentelevat kiinnityshihnat aiheuttavat ongelmia isompien taskujen kiinnityksen kannalta.

Himpun verran liian pieni. Vois olla esim. 45 l. Muuten hyvä.
Niin ja ei haittais jos läpän päällä olis tasku sadetakille/-viitalle. Tästäpä tulikin mieleeni: Tehkääpä Lekan sedät Särmä-sarjaan molle-tasku jonka mitat olis vaikka 27x30x10 cm. Sen vois kiinnitää tämän repun etupintaan tai läpän päälle ja käyttää myös olkalaukkuna. Siinä sais olla mieluiten vetoketjusulku.

Ostin keväällä, hinta oli hieman suolainen. Kotona tutkimisen ja arjessa hutkimisen jälkeen tullut siihen tulokseen että ei menny pennoset hukkaan. Tämä reppu varmasti tulee maksamaan itsensä takaisin moneen kertaan.

- ostin muualta ja sain 159e:oon mustana, nyt voin sävy sävyyn kiinnittää mustat mil-tecin varustetaskut:) kiinni
- ei tuo hullummalta näytä oliivin värisilläkin lisävarusteilla (niitä löytyy itse tehtyinä)
- koko hämää, kyllä siihen saa tavaraa mahtumaan, kun hieman viitsii nähdä vaivaa
- nuo lukuisat molle-kujastot lisäävät vielä tavara-tilaa mukavasti
- onnistunut muotoilu!
- suosittelen, mitä lämpimimmin

Erittäin jämäkkä ja hyvän tuntuinen selkään, tämme mahtuu myös Maakuntakomppanian tavarat nätisti sisälle. Tai no voihan vähän kiinnitellä ulkopuolellekin. Paras reppu mitä on tullut hankittua.

Todella hyvä reppu, jonka uskon palvelevan taattuun Savotta-tyyliin lähes ikuisesti. Just loistava päiväreppu lähialueille koiran kanssa lintujahtiin. Vielä on yönylireissuille soveltuvuus testaamatta, mutta olen tykännyt hemmetisti. Pitäis vielä tuunata tälle molle-härpäkkeitä itse, kun kerran on pelit ja vehkeet...

Tarkoituksella saanut kunnolla runtua ympärivuosissa käytössä metsässä ja merellä/saaristossa, myös lentomatkoilla ja reppu on vielä kuin uusi!
Yksinkertaisesti sanottuna helvetin hyvä reppu joka paikkaan jos tämä kokoluokka riittää, itselleni on riittänyt.

Erinomaisen hyvä "säkkimallin" reppu, eli ei sovi tasku- ja lokerohifisteille. Mollekujat mahdollistaa laajennokset, mutta etupuolen kujien määrä ei mahdollista monenkaan tarjolla olevan taskun kiinnitystä kivasti keskelle tai toisen kanssa symmetrisesti. Usein jopa turhan iso lyhyemmille päiväretkille, jolloin kansi lörpättää hassusti kun reppu on vajaa. Nauhojen kiristys vaatii mahdottomasti sekä voimaa että tekniikkaa. Minulla ei ole oikein kumpaakaan. Ei pidä täysin sadetta, ilmeisesti koska tikattu täyteen mollea (muutoin täydet 5 tähteä).

Mutta, aivan samperin hyvää tekoa ja fiksusti mietittyjä yksityiskohtia. Näyttää ja tuntuu todella hyvältä selässä. Kyljen vetoketju aivan loistava ominaisuus. Kamoja mahtuu parin päivän reissulle ja jopa viikonlopuksi jos ei täysin luonnon armoilla tarvitse olla. Muunneltavuus ja yksinkertaisuus on hyvä kombo. Tällä mennään vielä pitkälle.

Wow, what a bag! I purchased this backpack earlier this year. It originally was going to be filled with emergency supplies and whatnot for my truck, but it is too nice of a bag NOT to use often! In July I went on a trip to Taiwan for over a week to serve at a vacation bible school summer camp. This bag carried everything I needed and then some, even surviving 2 hours of biking every day for 5 days straight. People gave me lots of compliments with this bag, and some thought it appeared heavy because of its rugged and durable appearance. Nonsense! The weight is light for a bag this size yet the bag is still in perfect condition. After the trip I put this bag into service for university and I still use it today.

Bottom Line: This bag will not let you down and will endure whatever abuse you throw at it! The Finns make excellent gear, you will not be disappointed. Thanks Varusteleka!

I haven't had a chance to use this hiking yet, but in the city it works well for transporting large amounts of stuff. It's attractive and appears to be extremely well built, so Savotta's reputation seems intact fro now. The capacity and build might be a bit low for anything more than weekend hiking--in fact I've had to do the emergency-detach-the-top thing to make more room in the bag several times just in the city. Looking forward to making more use of this.

Hyvä säkki. Tilavuus tuntu aluksi pieneltä(tottunu leveempi pohjaseen 30litraseen) mut ylitäyttö lisää pirusti tilaa. Tukeva ku perkele. Lähinnä käytän kauppakassina. Eka kenttätesti oli hakea 2koria kaljaa niin kaukaa ku pyörällä kehtas. Molemmat korit meni ilman ylitäyttöä ja reppu istu seläs hyvin. Toinen testi oli jouluruuat kaupasta,kotona punnittuna 27kg painoa kaikkiaan,paino ei tuntunu pahalta seläs. 15kg pellettiä menee myös reppuun nätisti. Hyvä reppu,kestää varmasti hyvän tovin. Pari molletaskua lisäsin varuiksi. Sivutaskujen tarkoitusta en tiiä,jos tarkotuksena laittaa kirve ja remmillä kiristää toimii,mut jos 1.5litran pullo täyteen reppuun niin vastustaa. Paljon tuntuu olevan mollea ja nauhaa mut niihin tottuu ja ylitäyttö+läpän nosto on aivan jumalten keksintö.Tavaraa mahtuu erittäin hyvi.

-istuu hyvi
-tukeva
-kestävä
-tilava
-saa lisää tilaa molleilla
-remmeillä vielä lisää rojua mukaa.
-hyvin modattava omiin kantamuksiin.

I bought this to use in my truck at work for holding extra layers in case the weather gets nasty and carry the things i need to overnight in the daycab should it breakdown or i have to shutdown due to conditions. I have to say i am very pleased with it. It holds everything i normally carry without having to add a plethora of pouches like i did with my USMC assault pack. Very good quality and i wouldn't hesitate in buying another one.

Tekee mitä lupaa. Tämä reppu ei varmasti jätä pulaan. Vetoketjujen puolesta ei tarvitse murehtia esim. lentäessä. Tämä reppu on reppu, eikä pieni rinkka. Jos olet kokoiseni 185cm pitkä, 105kg, vyötäröltä 36 tuumaa leveä kebab eläin,niin harkitse seuraavaa kokoa.Olen melko harteikas,joten olka viilekkeet riittävät juuri talvivaatteissa. Ulkoiset kiinnikkeet ja tukevuus tekevät repusta erittäin hyvin laajennettavan.
