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.
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.
Hydration tube or antenna ports on both sides of the top of the pack.
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!
A less hostile video:
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.
