A drawcord collar covered with a floating lid closes off the main compartment at the top. A full-length side zipper offers quick access to smaller items stored within the main compartment. A zippered pocket inside the lid offers safe storage for your wallet, keys, travel documents and phone.
The floating lid and side compression straps offer a wide range of adjustability to the pack’s capacity. 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.
A hydration compartment is attached to the interior back wall. Tube ports on both sides allow you to route the hydration tube from the left or right while leaving the other port free for other uses such as antennas or cables.
PALS webbing on the hip belt, sides, and lid 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, but the PALS webbing can also be used to attach utility straps, shock cord, carabiners, etc. Four webbing loops at the bottom can be used to attach utility straps.
MILITARY GRADE MATERIALS
The majority of materials we use for our commercial products are the same, which we use in equipment for the Finnish Defence Forces and other defence and security clients. Our most commonly used fabric in load-carrying equipment is extremely worn resistant 1000D Cordura, as per FDF specs, with polyurethane coating on the inside. Again, the webbing and edge tape we use is, as per FDF specs, strong polyester webbing in various widths and thicknesses for different applications.
Our green and M05 camouflage materials and accessories are by default compliant with strict FDF specs for NIR reflection levels, as should be since these same materials are used in official military equipment.
The Jääkäri M features an internal plastic sheet frame, giving it the needed rigidity to stay upright when loaded with awkward and bulky gear.
Both the shoulder harness and waist belt are firmly padded with closed-cell foam. The shoulder harness is S-shaped and includes a removable sternum strap.
The forward pulling hip belt is easy to tighten even under load. The side-release buckle offers quick and easy opening when needed. The hip belt features an additional cushion for lower back support.
FINNISH BORDER GUARD CONNECTION
In the early 1990s, a compact Savotta hiking pack, called the “608”, was chosen as the starting point for designing a new day pack for the Finnish Border Guard. This then turned into the “Kevyt Rajapartio” or Lightweight Border Patrol pack, a very modern pack for its time: a narrow design for mobility, side zipper, compression straps, and rifle attachment. Most notably, it featured a very sturdy carrying system and aluminum reinforced frame – something is rarely seen on packs of its size.
This venerable design was in 2013 chosen as the basis for the development of what would become the Jääkäri M, the first in Savotta’s modern lineup of packs featuring military-grade construction and functionality. This turned out really well, and the Jääkäri M was then followed by its siblings: the Jääkäri S, L, and XL.
