The Savotta Border Patrol 60 litre Backpack is a traditionally designed rucksack and an excellent choice for shorter camping trips, hikes and treks and was originally designed for the Finnish Border Guard.
Unlike larger external framed backpacks, the Border Patrol backpack has an internal pipe frame which reinforces the back of the bag. This rigid and lightweight internal structure allows the backpack to stay upright and comfortable to carry even when filled with heavy loads. The support frame can also be removed from the backpack, if desired.
As a special feature, the Border Patrol backpack has attachment points for a rifle. These are positioned on the outside and can also be used to attach a camera tripod or other long items.
The top main compartment (dimensions approximately 45 x 35 x 22 cm) is closed by tightening the drawstring. The opening is then secured with a waterproof protective collar which enables over packing. This opening is covered with a large flap which is secured with straps. The generous length of these straps provides adequate space under the flap for over packing. There is also a tightening strap that encircles the whole backpack.
There is a large, open pouch pocket inside the flap. When the flap is closed, the opening of the pocket faces upwards. When tightened and closed the contents will not fall out.
Inside the backpack and positioned at the back there is a compartment for the support frame. This compartment is also ideal for carrying, for example, a hydration bladder, SAM splint or other flat items.
The lower compartment of the bag (dimensions approximately 15 x 35 x 20 cm) is closed with a two-way zipper and secured with the same straps used to close the flap of the backpack itself.
The side pockets (dimensions approximately 30 x 15 x 6 cm) are closed with waterproof protective collars and covered with flaps that can be secured with straps. The side pocket on the left side also has a vertical zipper through which the contents of the pocket can be accessed quickly.
The side pocket on the right side of the pack is tunnelled-shaped and there is an attachment point above it for a detachable strap. This will conveniently hold an axe, for example.
The wide, anatomically shaped, sturdy shoulder straps and the well-padded hip belt are designed for supported and comfortable carrying. The buckle of the hip belt can be undone very quickly with one hand. The carrying handle on the top of the backpack ensures easy carrying by hand as well.
