Border ahkio

The Border ahkio is made for military use, originally designed with the Finnish Border Guard. A reinforced and more feature packed evolution of the standard Paljakka. The pull poles are crossed for good mobility and steerability and attach to the belt using a rope lock. A complete spare steel pulling rod is included, its two parts double up as the stiffeners for the edge of the snow cargo cover. Capable of transporting far heavier loads than possible in a backpack, ahkios are a valuable tool for extended operations in the arctic winter.
