The Jääkäri XL 70 litre Rucksack is the largest pack in the Jääkäri series, featuring an external frame designed for heavy and cumbersome loads, with a capacity of approximately 70 litres. The Jääkäri XL is an improved model of the modular LJK paratrooper rucksack originally designed for the Finnish Defence Forces.
The PALS attachment system offers great outwards scalability when you need it. Fully height adjustable and generously padded thermoformed shoulder harness and hip belt combined with a heavy duty external tubular aluminium frame allow the Jääkäri XL to carry extremely heavy loads comfortably.
Roll top on the top, zip on the bottom and a cinch cord divider inside allow you to use the main pack bag in any which way you please. By opening up the divider the main bag is turned into one huge, cavernous space, allowing you to pack very large and long items. The bottom zip offers quick access to whatever gear you need most during the day whilst the roll top guarantees weatherproof protection for the bulk of your gear.
The bottom zipped compartment features interior elastic compression straps and four small mesh pockets for organizing your gear. A zipped pocket inside the lid offers additional safe storage for your wallet, keys, travel documents and phone.
The roll top closure, floating lid and side compression straps offer a wide range of adjustability to the volume of the pack. Strap it down tight or loosen it up depending on the carried load. The compression straps allow for further gear to be attached on the outside of the pack if necessary. External side pouches on the bottom can be used to secure tools, tripods etc. strapped to the sides of the pack.
PALS webbing on the hip belt, sides, lid and bottom of the pack allow you to attach additional pouches and gear. This system offers numerous options for configuring the pack to suit your specific needs. Not only for pouches though, the PALS webbing can also be used to attach utility straps, shock cord, carabiners etc. The hip belt can be removed from the frame for use as a stand-alone equipment belt. With suitable pouches attached you could use this instead of, or in conjunction with, a small daypack.
A hydration compartment is attached to the interior back wall. Tube ports on both sides allow you to route your hydration bladder tube from the left or right, while leaving the other port free for other uses such as antennas or cables.
When carrying heavy backpacks over long distances it is extremely important that your pack fits just right. The length adjustable hip belt and shoulder harness can both be moved up and down the frame to fit 160-200 cm tall users. The external LJK tubular aluminium frame keeps the pack from sagging and transfers the pack weight onto your hips even when loaded down with heavy and cumbersome cargo.
Both the shoulder harness and hip belt are generously padded with thermoformed closed cell foam padding. The shoulder harness is S-shaped and includes a removable sternum strap. The forward pull adjustment on the hip belt is easy to tighten even under load. The side release buckle offers quick and easy opening when needed.
