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.
You might not believe it but the 339 was actually designed back in the 1950's, although some materials and details have changed over time the model is still pretty much the same. In the beforetimes people didn't need a zillion little pockets and compartments for every little trinket imaginable, thus the 339 also has no such nonsense. Let's go throuh the pack.
The carrying system is quite something: the padded shoulder harness is made like that of the legendary LJK rucksack, the shoulder straps are attached to the frame and a crosspiece on which your back rests. This makes the 339 extremely comfortable to carry! The shoulder straps make it possible to adjust the balance point on-the-go, which is pretty damn nice.
The strap length per se is not adjustable on the go; you should adjust them beforehand in a way that the crosspiece on the back rests against your lower back when the pack is carried.
The materials are strong cotton with paraffin treatment, polyamide straps, military grade plastic buckles and a proper hand welded steel frame!
Savotta makes these short movies, which are delightful to watch and might send you off to an imaginary trip to the woods.
