Savotta Border Patrol Light - A compact and versatile backpack for day tours
The Border Patrol Light is a rugged and versatile backpack. It was originally designed for Finnish border guards, so the backpack has a tactical character. It is extremely compact and can therefore be carried in dense bushes. The buckles of the Border Patrol Light are all made of metal except for the chest strap.
The layout of the Border Patrol Light
The main compartment is closed with a drawstring. A waterproof snow catcher is attached above the main compartment to enable the rucksack to be overpacked. The long straps also allow the rucksack to be overpacked at various points. The contents of the upper compartment can be accessed from the side. Here a zipper was attached vertically over the complete right side. An inner compartment, which extends over the entire length of the back, is designed for the transport of a hydration bladder. A tiresome removal and putting on of the rucksack for a short drinking break is thus saved. There is also a holder for a thermos bottle inside the backpack and a compartment for small things on the lid.
Fastening points of the backpack
At the front of the rucksack there are loops to fix a rifle, but any other bulky items can also be fixed. Four additional loops are sewn onto the bottom of the rucksack, ideal for carrying an insulating mat. The hip belt also has loops on both sides.
Special features of the carrying system
Wide and padded straps allow ergonomic and supported carrying. The back of the backpack is reinforced by a plastic frame on which two additional aluminium rods have been riveted. This frame helps to keep the backpack upright at all times. If necessary, the frame can be removed from the backpack.
