Varusteleka – Särmä TST RP80 Recon Pack


Varusteleka is a Finland-based company which specializes in military and outdoor gear and related products. They, in collaboration with Finn-Savotta Oy, developed the RP80, an 80 liter sustainment pack which is designed to be tall and slim. This design distributes weight closer and above the wearer’s center of gravity and spine, and also allows unrestricted arm and elbow movement when skiing; a must for Nortic and Arctic users.

The RP80 sports a DUR-Aluminum frame designed specifically for the pack, while the pack body is made of 1000D Cordura nylon. Features include:

  • Max. dimensions 85 x 37 x 25 cm + bottom corner pouches.
  • Weight 1700 g.
  • Drawcord divider inside, top compartment height 60 cm, bottom compartment height 25 cm.
  • Roll top closure with added security/compression strap.
  • Zippered bottom flap with two security/compression straps.
  • Two large baggy bottom corner pouches. Volume approx. 2,5 liters per pouch.
  • Two 75 cm long compression/tie down straps on each side.
  • Hydration bladder compartment inside.
  • Two horizontal tie down straps inside against the back.
  • Carry handles on the sides and lower back.
  • A seamless, uninterrupted 7 x 22 PALS matrix goes around the whole upper half of the bag.
  • Two vertical attachment point straps along the back.
  • The RP80 is assembled in Finland and Estonia.

      Varusteleka has the best customer service in existence. I had issues that were not their fault and they sent me replacement items. They charge $10 for US shipping, which is the best of any foreign company and the web site is hilarious. Everyone should should have a look at their site. Tons of Finnish M05 stuff and very unique pouches and packs.

        I second the hilarity of their website. The Polish Space Program quips and the product listing for the Yugoslavian mess kit make me laugh every time.
