The Outdoor Gear Review: Few Military Packs are this Good!

Over the years I have taken my time reviewing the Jaakari backpacks from Savotta and I have saved the largest for now.  

This is the Jaakari Xl and it features what is now a rarity, an external frame that was designed for heavy and cumbersome loads.

Find out what makes this one of the best military / tactical packs ever made.

Review :

Exceptional construction

Top of the line materials and components 

These packs can take a literal beating and they last forever.  Savotta has videos of them doing all sorts of torture tests on their packs and they take it all with ease.

Adjustable harness system which is rare in military style packs

Very comfortable – the belt hugs the waist perfectly and takes the load off of the shoulders.  The harness system is also very comfortable

This pack is designed to carry heavy loadouts and it does that very, very well.  The heaviest I that I have packed this is 52lbs and it is surprisingly comfortable.

Stable when wearing the pack even with heavy loadouts; the weight is very well controlled and doesn’t swing around crazily. 

Easy to adjust waist belt – pull forward to tighten

Enough pockets for organizing gear

Tons of straps and external loops for attaching gear     

Huge sleeping bag compartment 

Frame does an amazing job of preventing your loadout from sagging

Exceptionally adaptable thanks to all of the PALS webbing and straps 

Ventilation is very good

BadA$$ looking backpack
