Savotta Jääkäri backpack
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 pack claimed that prize! Based on the Light Border Patrol Pack the Jaeger 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.
A GrimLoc or two is a real "must have" for any 21st century military maniac. A handy little trinket for attaching any small gear or a keyring, the GrimLoc can be hung from just about any strap or fastened onto a 25 mm webbing strap, PALS webbing or rucksacks. Silent and non-reflective, very tacticool!

A clever little trinket, the Wed Dominator puts your excess webbing straps in place and can also be used to attach a number of small items onto straps or PALS-webbing.

Let's play a game! Find a weak spot in the Minijääkäri (Mini Jaeger) backpack. Difficulty level: nightmare.
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.

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.
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.
- The initial Savotta tightening direction.
- Undo the shoulder strap and weave it through the female DWSR buckle. The 25 mm part should poke out and form a loop.
- The strap goes through a single slot in the original adjustment buckle.
- Finally the strap is weaved though the male DWSR part.
- Lock the 25 mm strap with a Web dominator, Grimlock or anything you have handy.
- The new pulling direction.
As a nice side-effect you can now quickly extend the strap and have less excess hanging about.
Laitoin samoin tein Varustelekan hihnamodaukset, mutta ne kyllä hakkaa kainaloita sen verta että pitänee palautaa alkuperäiseen muotoonsa. Muuten reppu on kyllä juuri sitä mitä haluan. Kiitos Savotta. Kiitos myös Leka.
