The Savotta Jääkäri M 22 litre backpack, previously known as the Jaeger, is an improved model of the Light Border Patrol backpack
originally designed for the Finnish Border Guard. Genuine user experiences have been taken into account in the design of the backpack and the best of the many ideas have been sewn together to make the Jääkäri M.
The Jääkäri is more than a normal daypack. The many details and extensive MOLLE webbing make the backpack a truly modular and versatile tool. Due to its slim shape, the backpack will not be in the way even in cramped spaces. In its size category, the Jääkäri is a sturdy backpack to carry. The internal support frame holds the Jääkäri firmly in shape. With the compression straps of the bag, even a pack that is not full can be tightened so that it sits firmly and does not move around.
The main bag of the Jääkäri M backpack has been designed to be slim but still spacious enough to hold the necessary supplies for a day trip. The opening of the bag is closed with a drawstring and secured with a waterproof protective collar which enables overpacking as well. The opening is covered with a flap which hugs the top of the backpack and is secured with straps. The flap has been attached with adjustable straps from both sides, so it “floats” and enables easy overpacking (up to 6 litres extra). Furthermore, there is a spacious zippered pocket for valuables inside the flap (dimensions approximately 25 x 25 cm).
The contents of the backpack can be accessed quickly also from its right side through a vertical zipper that runs along the full height of the backpack. The zipper has two pullers so it can be opened from your preferred spot.
Inside the bag, there is a mesh pocket (dimensions approx. 23 x 37 cm) for a hydration bladder or supplies that need to be kept separate. On each side of the bag protected under a flap there are outlets for the tubes of a hydration bladder.
The anatomically shaped, sturdy shoulder straps and the low-profile but robust hip belt make for supported and comfortable carrying. The buckle of the hip belt can be tightened in both directions and there is a lot of room for adjustment to suit users of many sizes. The buckled chest strap provides extra comfort and support for carrying. With the carrying handle on the top, the backpack can be carried easily by hand as well.
The back has been reinforced with a highly durable frame made of ethylene plastic sheet. 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.
The generously sized and sturdy padding pillows against the back are a rarity in a backpack of this size category and make the Jääkäri M a surprisingly comfortable small backpack to carry. If desired, the pillow against the small of your back can be removed or, alternatively, the hip belt can be folded out of the way behind the pillow.
