Savotta Jääkäri Small backpack
The Jääkäri series of packs have been extremely well thought out and you can see why they have become a popular product. They combine great design, brilliant quality materials and European manufacturing to produce a highly useful range of backpacks.
Every detail and function seems to have been considered and tested extensively. Don’t let the small size fool you: the Jääkäri S is a highly versatile and adaptable daypack that you can rely on in both urban environments and deep in the forest or jungle. Jääkäri S is also highly modular: it is fitted with the MOLLE pocket attachment system.
Jääkäri S is not just a small daypack, but rather a versatile tool, perfect for any highly mobile individual. Thanks to its compact size, this backpack will not be in the way even in cramped spaces and it is ideal for bicycling, running, skiing and hunting. In addition, assuming you don’t mind a few extra grams, the Jääkäri S also makes a great and durable companion for any extreme sport. The bag’s compression straps can be tightened to ensure it sits firmly and does not jiggle around. The Jääkäri S also serves perfectly as a carry-on bag.
The Jääkäri S’s bag 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 folding flap which enables over packing as well. When closed normally, the bag’s opening folds approximately 10 centimetres over the front together with the flap. This ensures that packed items stay inside the bag securely and tightly and it also helps keep water out. The folding opening and lengthy straps enable considerable over packing. The main bag adapts in a stepless manner and has a capacity of 20–25 litres.
There is a zipped pocket inside the flap for small items and valuables, which can be used to store items such as your toothbrush and passport (dimensions: 15 x 25 cm). The bag’s opening has been reinforced with ethylene support pads that ensure you won’t waste time getting the bag open and items out.
Inside the bag, there is a separate pocket (dimensions approx. 23x37cm) for a hydration bladder or supplies that need to be kept separate. This pocket will easily hold, for example, a contemporary 13.3-inch laptop or any smaller pads and gadgets. The pocket’s opening is closed with an elasticated band. This ensures that items stay in and don’t move around when you do. A hanging loop found in the upper part of the pocket can hold items such as a hydration bladder safely and securely.
On each side of the bag protected under a flap there are outlets for the tubes of a hydration bladder or, for example, a cord or aerial.
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.

Best ruck in it's class, better than everything I have used to date. Had a Tasmanian Tiger ESSENTIAL PACK L MK II,which was good, but the savotta is a clss of it's own. I gave the TT to my wife and she is happy with it.
