    Savotta is from Finland. http://www.finn-savotta.fi/?lang=eng_

    Their rucksacks are excellent. They do have some daypack models as well, but I don't have much experience with those. Nowadays their military models even have PALS on them.

    The downside of Savotta is that the quality of materials they use suck, big time.

    Then there´s the Retki, which makes pretty decent stuff for reasonable prices.. You don´t get Kifaru quality, but you ain´t paying for it, either.

    Thanks for the replies so far! I've been doing research on the companies you all have suggested.
    So far, there are none available directly in the U.S.
    I contacted Klattermusen directly and they emailed they will have U.S. distributors in about 1.5 years!
    Will keep searching to see if I can find one here in the states.

    If you are in the States, may i ask you why are you looking for a Scandinavian pack?

    Btw, if you are looking for a civilian type pack, my vote definitely goes for Haglöfs..
