A classic from 1989 is updated to modern construction and materials. Rajapartio is Finnish for Border Patrol as it was originally designed for Finnish Border Guard. It is most suitable for hiking and trekking for a few days or less.

The Rajapartio bridges the gap between large backpacks and rucksacks. An internal tubular aluminum frame helps when carrying cumbersome and heavy loads. As a special feature, the Rajapartio has attachment points for an assault rifle. The attachment points can very well be used to attach a camera tripod or other long items.


The top main compartment closes by tightening a drawstring sleeve and is secured with a waterproof protective collar which enables overpacking as well. The opening is covered with a large flap which is secured with straps. The generous length of the straps provides a lot of space under the flap for overpacking.

Inside the flap there's a large, open pouch. When the flap is closed, the opening of the pouch faces upwards and tightens shut so that the contents will not fall.

A compartment the size of the whole back keeps the support frame of the backpack. The compartment is also ideal for carrying a hydration bladder or other flat items. The lower compartment of the bag closes with a two-way zipper and is secured with the same straps used to close the flap of the backpack itself.

The side pockets close with waterproof protective collars and are covered with cup-shaped flaps that can be secured with straps. The side pocket on the left has a vertical zipper to access the contents of the pocket quickly.

  • Main compartment: approx. 45 x 35 x 22 cm (17.5" x 14" x 8.5")
  • Lower compartment: approx. 15 x 35 x 20 cm (6" x 14" x 8")
  • Side pockets: approx. 30 x 15 x 6 cm (12" x 6" x 2.5")


There are attachment loops to carry a rifle on the flap and lower back. The loops are also suitable for carrying other long pieces of equipment. The load is secured by tightening a strap that goes around the whole backpack.

There are attachment points for detachable straps on top of the flap for large supplies that would not otherwise fit inside. The side pocket on the right is tunnel-shaped and there is an attachment point above it for a detachable strap. This will conveniently hold an axe, for example.


The wide, anatomic shoulder straps and the padded hip belt make for supported and comfortable carrying. The buckle of the hip belt can be undone very quickly with one hand. The backpack can be carried easily by a handle on the top.

The back has been reinforced with an internal, square pipe frame made of DUR aluminum. Because of this lightweight frame, the backpack stays upright and is comfortable to carry even with a load that is a bit heavier. The support frame can also be removed from the backpack if desired.

What is the hipp belt adjustment range?

Would love to get the Savotta Jääkäri L rucksack but an adjustment of 90–150 cm for a wee slim Jim like myself just wouldn't work out.
