For a long time we preached that the "Light Border Patrol" pack was the best Finnish military pack ever. Well, not anymore: the Jääkäri M pack claimed that prize! Based on the Light Border Patrol Pack the Jääkäri 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".

For a long time we preached that the "Light Border Patrol" pack was the best Finnish military pack ever. Well, not anymore: the Jääkäri M pack claimed that prize! Based on the Light Border Patrol Pack the Jääkäri 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".

Jääkäri is Finnish for Jaeger, traditional Prussian name for fighting infantrymen and a title still proudly used in the Finnish military.

A light border patrol pack evolved

The "Jääkäri M" is based on Savotta's famous "Kevyt Rajapartio" (Light Border Patrol, a daypack developed in the late '90s for our border troops), but it's a step up the evolutionary ladder. The 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 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!

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.

Parasta mitä olen toistaiseksi selässäni kantanut. Eukot mukaan lukien.

I've had this rucksack for almost a year now. The build quality is exceptional. I have owned other good quality rucksacks, like karrimor, they are good, this rucksack is tougher than anything else I've owned. Also, it is comfortable. I've been "rucking" with my Jaakari M, read walking around with heavy weights in it for no other purpose but exercise. I have used 60 lbs (27Kgs) of metal weights, wrapped in a wool blanket. The small rucksack has no problem with the weight the straps can get the load tight and It is also pretty comfortable. Which is surprising.

A great purchase, would recommend to anyone.
