The Jääkäri rucksack is an improved model of the modular LJK paratrooper rucksack originally designed for the Finnish Defence Forces. Genuine user experiences have already been taken into account in the design of the rucksack and the best of the many ideas have been sewn together to make the Jääkäri. Based on the feedback received, we have further developed the versatility, durability and look of the rucksack.
This XL size carrying device of the Jääkäri family is much more than just an ordinary rucksack. The carefully thought-out details and extensive MOLLE webbing make this rucksack a truly modular and versatile tool that adapts to the needs of the user. Due to the slim shape, the rucksack is ideal for those who are skiing or hiking in difficult and demanding terrain. Thanks to its strong, manually welded aluminium frame and revised supportive carrying system, the Jääkäri rucksack is very sturdy to carry. The support frame holds the Jääkäri firmly in shape and distributes the burden anatomically to your hips so that your back and shoulders are not overstrained even with the largest of loads. The detachable hip belt of the rucksack can also be used as a separate combat, equipment or sledge belt, when needed.
With the rolltop and compression straps of the bag, the Jääkäri rucksack can be tightened so that it sits firmly and does not jiggle around even when not full. This improves carrying comfort. In addition to the excellent carrying features, this “military spec” rucksack is made of durable and high quality materials. The rucksack was field-tested to the extreme. We dropped it from 350 metres to test its strength and filled it with gravel for the carrying test, and the rucksack passed both tests with flying colours. We offer the Jääkäri rucksack a 10-year guarantee.
