Let's play a game! Find a weak spot in the Jääkäri S backpack. Difficulty level: nightmare. This pack was formerly known as "Minijääkäri".
Despite the name this is actually a proper sized 20 litre day pack, simple in construction and appearance. A roll-top closure means there are no zippers to fail and rain doesn't fall into your stuff. All straps, buckles, stitches and so on are tough as nails, so you can really push yourself through anything and the pack will be your trusty companion.
The main compartment is simple with just one zippered pocket on the inside of the flap for valuables, and a kangaroo pouch for a hydration bladder or 13.3" laptop. The pack has elastic passages for the hose (or headphone cord) on both sides at the top. Anything else you want to pack separately goes easily on the outside thanks to the PALS webbing: even the carrying straps have PALS for pouches you want to keep really easily accessible, or just for a sternum strap.
When you're not carrying a full load the flap folds down to a compact size, and side compression straps reduce the bulk further. The volume is there when you need it, but barely noticeable on your back when you don't.
The flap has a 13 x 5 cm velcro base for a name patch or morale stuff.
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.
The good folks at Savotta think the shoulder strap adjustment should be close to your pack at the hip and tightened by pulling up and forward. We prefer the regular "nipples position" because we're so mainstream. To complete the hack all you need is two 40 mm ITW DWSR buckles. The hack is reversible and requires no sewing at all.
As a nice side-effect you can now quickly extend the strap and have less excess hanging about.
