The Savotta Jääkäri M 30 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.

  This is my first piece of equipment made by savotta, but it certainly won't be my last. A good, solid, dependable rucksack just as I had envisaged. Everything is well put together and the bag feels as though it will handle any amount of rough treatment. I was sceptical about the lack of padding on the shoulder straps, but honestly, as long as I keep the weight sensible, it's the most comfortable rucksack I've worn. Normally I would see the full length zip as a potential weak point of the bag, but considering how well its made I have no worries, even though it will probably be of little use to me personally. Modularity is important to me, and I eagerly await Woodlore restocking the vertical pockets so I can add a couple more small compartments when necessary. If you're considering this bag, don't hesitate, Woodlore have it at a good price compared to other shops at time of writing, and it's a sound investment that should last a very long time.

  Very strong and well built rucksack. It’s also comfortable when loaded. The side pockets are shallow and not so wide, more suitable for carrying an axe or a rifle rather then a water bottle. The lid straps are extra long so you can carry a roll mat but if you want the mat attached to the bottom of your rucksack extra webbing straps would be needed but that’s more down to personal preference.

  Savotta have a great reputation for a reason and this is a quality bit of kit. Absolutely bombproof but this comes with a weight penalty, it’s not the lightest on the market. Doesn’t have load lifters and this caused me to question it a bit before buying. After the first trip out with reasonable weight, any concerns were put to bed. Comfortable and stable, it carries really well. The shoulder straps are quite thin but wide and they spread the load well. All in all, I am chuffed to bits with it. Fantastic service from Woodlore. Rapid despatch and communication was great.

  Usual great service from Woodlore. However, I would say this bag is vastly overpriced. Build quality and look is great, but the actual design and features are out-dated and badly implemented. For example the bottle holder pockets on the side wont allow bottles in when the bag is full or even half full. Poor closing mechanism - get a Karrimor sf for half the price and 10 times the bag.

Dear Arthur, thank you for your product review. The Savotta products are very rugged and tested thoroughly, their design is very distinctive and has traces of their history. I will pass on your comments to my supplier regarding your findings on the side pockets. Good luck with your Savotta backpack, I am sure it will serve you well.

  Fast delivery to Sweden as usual. It is a high quality backpack made in Finland. The MOLLE system makes it versatile and the size is perfect for 1-2 day trips. It sits very nicely on the back. It feels durable and almost impossible to tear. I look forward to using it for many hunting and fishing trips in Sweden.

  Perfect service from Woodlore, as usual. The pack is well made and designed. Supposed to be 22 litre, but seems about the same capacity as my old Berghaus Munro. Much more flexible and expandable though, with floating lid and long compression straps. Not to mention ample PALS webbing for MOLLE attachment. Harness is comfortable and I especially like the hip lumbar pad and back pads, which keep your back comfortable, cool and sweat-free. Far better than mesh backed packs. My only criticism is the side zip access, which I regard as pointless. A pack for all seasons. Pricey, but recommended.
