Särmä backpack rain cover, orange
In many situations more visibility means better survivability, like amongst urban traffic or when hunting (conversely, probably not during the Italian hunting season). Around here the weather is usually crappy too. Thus, a perfect accessory for anyone wearing a backpack is a rain cover for it.
Finnish sleeping mat
Now, if there's something the Finnish army can do right, it's the sleeping gear. Our kip mat is the best one we've ever seen, to be honest. These are made by the official army contractor, Savotta. You can see from the price you've got quality coming.
Jerven Fjellduken Original
Heat reflecting, waterproof, simple and reliable, the Fjellduken Original, or Jerven Bag, is a tarp, poncho, bivvy bag and more all in one. This is what Norwegian hunters and soldiers have been using for the past 30 years, as the makers say "The wheel can not get any rounder!"
Savotta LJK rucksack
One of the best external frame rucksack ever made. Unlike conscripts, this rucksack can take serious beating and abuse without giving up the ghost.
Savotta Kevyt Rajapartio rucksack
An unbeliveable piece from the 21st century military backpack front - the Savotta "Light Border Patrol" is an outstanding design: simple, yet not stupid, versatile, but not complicated and above all practically bombproof, these things are made to military specs right here in Finland!
Savotta Rucksack 339
The 339 is actually far more than just a rucksack, this is more like a mix between a regular backpack and a large external frame bergen. Classic design with an extremely clever carrying system, an excellent choice for carrying a few days worth of gear.
Terävä Skrama, carbon steel
The Skrama is a versatile heavy duty bush knife - a tool that builds shelters, chops firewood and even carves feather sticks! If you're taking just one knife into the bush the Skrama is a viable option. This is naturally no axe, nor a precision tool for extremely meticulous work, but something in between and a solid and dependable companion above all.
Savotta LJK 202 daypack
A simple daysack, designed for use with the LJK rucksack, also known simply as the "202". If you're looking for an outdoors and everyday pack for the rest of your life, here's a good choice! For 50 eurobucks this is a steal.
Finnish M05 pack sack
A Finnish military waterproof packsack, perfect size as a daypack liner. These are quite a leap forward from any standard plastic shopping bags. Available in brown and green.
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.
The last of the Mohicans, or at least the last of proper old school framed canvas backpacks! Just like it was over 50 years ago the 323 from Savotta is still going strong, a classic design and outstanding quality.
Naturally this is much more than just a showpiece of quality and workmanship, the 323 is just as great today as it was back in the 1950's. In the beforetimes people didn't need a zillion little pockets and compartments for every little trinket imaginable, thus the 323 also has no such nonsense, it's simple: one large main compartment, two long side pouches and one wide pouch on the lower back. On the upper sides are attachment points for straps, used to attach a blanket or other heavy stuff.
The carrying system is just as old timey as the pack itself - simple adjustable leather shoulder straps and a horizontal strap which sits comfortably outstretched against your lower back.
The materials are classics: tough cotton canvas, super thick leather and steel!
