The Savotta Backpack 339 is a cavernous and easily packed bag. The carrying comfort of an external steel frame makes the 339 a fine choice for longer trips. It is a classic model from the 1950s, the design has remained the same, only the materials have been updated over the years.
The main compartment is closed by tightening the drawstring opening which is covered with a flap that can be secured with straps. The contents of the bag can also be accessed quickly through the small side zipper on the right side of the opening. As a special feature, there are strings on the sides of the bag that can be used to tighten it to make the bag sturdy with less stuff inside, the range of adjustment is approximately 10 cm. This bag also features 3 generously sized outer pockets for items you want to access quickly.
The supportive carrying system similar to an external frame backpack assures carrying comfort. The back length is continuously adjustable to suit users of different heights. Your upper back sits against stretched netted fabric and your lower back, in turn, against a strap saddle: these keep the bag itself from touching your back for the most part, making for less sweaty conditions. The steel pipe frame is bent at the lower part, forming a base onto which the backpack can be set down safely, even on sharp stony ground.
The shoulder straps are wider than normal and padded, a chest strap with a buckle gives additional support. The supporting point of the shoulder straps is located at the top of the frame. It is possible to adjust the centre of gravity of the backpack even while walking by tightening and loosening the shoulder straps. The operating principle is roughly the same as with the supportive carrying systems of external frame backpacks.
