The actual bag of the Jääkäri M (dimensions approximately 52 x 25 x 17 cm) 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 drawstring and secured with a waterproof protective collar which enables overpacking as well. The opening is covered with a flap which hugs the top of the backpack and is secured with straps. The flap has been attached with adjustable straps from both sides, so it “floats” and enables easy overpacking. If necessary, the generous length of the straps provides a lot of space under the flap for extra supplies, such as a sleeping bag. Furthermore, there is a spacious zippered pocket for valuables inside the flap (dimensions approximately 25 x 25 cm).
The contents of the backpack can be accessed quickly also from its right side through a vertical zipper that runs along the full height of the backpack. The zipper has two pullers so it can be opened from your preferred spot.
Against the back inside the bag, there is a compartment the size of the whole back for the support frame of the backpack. The compartment is also ideal as an additional pocket to carry flat items.
Inside the bag, there is a mesh pocket (dimensions approx. 23 x 37 cm) 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.
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.
With the four compression straps on the sides of the backpack, the bag can be tightened compactly even if it is not full.
Low on the sides there are open pockets with elasticised openings where you can place small supplies or, alternatively, a long tool or a water bottle, the neck of which can be tied firmly in place with a side compression strap.
The bottoms of these pockets also have metal rings to remove water from the pocket.
