The boys from Milcomp visited us in order to test the APC556 PDW. Here is their review:
Savotta backpack Rajajääkäri
Rajajääkäri is an improved model of the Border Patrol rucksack that was originally designed for the Finnish Border Guard. The original Border Patrol is a classic from 1989 and it is still actively used by the border guards and countless hunters and hikers. During all these years, we have gathered user feedback, experiences and wishes to our product development database. With the help of this valuable information we have revamped Border Patrol into a modern and very durable anatomical rucksack: Rajajääkäri!
Rajajääkäri is not your average anatomical rucksack but a tool designed for a demanding user that will not fail you when the going gets tough. The sturdiness of the original Border Patrol rucksack has received so much praise that we decided not to change the support structure. The bag and carrying system, however, underwent such a drastic modification that it is difficult to recognise the forefather of Rajajääkäri.
The many details and extensive MOLLE webbing make the rucksack a truly modular and versatile tool. Due to its slim shape, the rucksack is ideal for skiing and hiking in demanding terrain where being able to keep your hands free and available for use is a must. Due to the strong internal aluminium frame and completely renewed shoulder straps and hip belt, Rajajääkäri is really sturdy to carry. The support frame holds Rajajääkäri firmly in shape and distributes the burden anatomically to your hips so that your back and shoulders are not overstrained even with a large load. With the compression straps of the bag, even a pack that is not full can be tightened so that it sits firmly and does not jiggle around.
