The Savotta Jääkäri S 18-22 litre Daypack, previously known as the Mini Jaeger, is a lighter and smaller version of the Savotta Jääkäri M Backpack. An extensive amount of customer feedback and wishes were taken into account in its design and the best ideas were brought together by experts to produce this compact package. The Jääkäri S is a highly versatile and adaptable daypack that you can rely on in urban environments and deep in the forest or jungle. This rucksack is also fitted with the MOLLE pocket attachment system.

The Jääkäri S has been designed to be slim but still spacious enough to hold all of the necessary supplies for a day trip. The opening, folding opening flap and lengthy straps allow considerable overpacking giving the main compartment of this rucksack the ability to adapt in a seamless manner offering a capacity of from 18 to 22 litres. There is also a zipped pocket inside the front flap for small items and valuables, which can be used to store items such as your toothbrush and passport (15x25cm).

Inside the bag, there is a separate pocket (approx. 23x37cm) ideally suited for a hydration bladder with its hanging loop found in the upper part of the pocket, or if preferred, a 13.3-inch laptop or any smaller pads and gadgets. This rucksack also benefits from outlets for the tubes of a hydration bladder or a cord or aerial on each side of the bag protected under a flap.

Compression straps found on the backpack’s sides can be used to tighten the bag into a compact shape even when it is not full. The same straps can also be used jointly with additional straps for attaching long items to the bag.

No Jääkäri rucksack is complete without the modular structure provided by PALS webbing familiarly known as “MOLLE”. PALS/MOLLE is an attachment system used by the military in almost every country. MOLLE webbing can be found on the Jääkäri S’s front, sides, opening flap and even on its shoulder straps and hip belt. With MOLLE, you can attach any pocket compatible with PALS almost anywhere you want on the Jääkäri S. Using additional pockets, this rucksack can be modified into a tactical tool that is suitable for a range of professional uses.

It is also possible to use the bag’s side straps and attachment straps on the opening flap to fasten items that would not otherwise fit in the backpack to its sides, underneath or front. The compression straps have been sized to be long enough to extend over the backpack all the way to the opposite attachment point, if necessary.

The slim and comfortable 40 mm wide shoulder straps are sturdy, but do not hinder movement. The shoulder straps are also fitted with MOLLE webbing and can be used to hold small accessories, a chest strap or the tubes of a hydration bladder. With the carrying handle on the top, the Jääkäri S backpack can be carried easily by hand as well.

  The pack is very easy to carry, you can roll it up went not in use. This is like the Russian Army Veshmeshok Backpack. The straps have no padding but its very comfortable, This is well made pack.

  Whilst the Mini Jaeger pack may be very versatile and is made from very hard wearing material and high quality Delrin buckles, I had to spend some time customizing it , in order to get it to a point where I was happy with it. I found that the shoulder straps were very uncomfortable with any weight in the pack and I had to sew old padded straps which I already had behind these straps, which now make it usable. The adjustment buckles for the shoulder straps are attached to the base of the pack, rather than at the usual armpit level. I don't like this and the action is not intuitive. The effort needed to get the straps to move is also much more than is normal, maybe due to the type of strap material used and the 40mm width rather than the usual 25mm. There is a pocket inside the pack which can hold a water bladder, I placed a sit mat inside here to prevent all of the contents sticking into my back when the pack was being worn as there is no frame sheet present. I believe Savotta make a special sit mat for this use. There is also no chest strap, but I fitted an old one which I already had. Overall I think that for me, the Savotta Jaeger pack would have been a better option, as it has all of the things I had to sort out on this Mini Jaeger already fitted. Once again I can honestly recommend Woodlore for their high quality customer service.
