Detailed description

A reinforced and more feature packed evolution of the standard Paljakka. Capable of transporting far heavier loads than possible in a backpack, ahkios are a valuable tool for extended operations in the arctic winter.

The pull poles are crossed for good mobility and steerability and attach to the belt using a rope lock. A complete spare steel pulling rod is included, its two parts double up as the stiffeners for the edge of the snow cargo cover.

The Border ahkio is a "military upgrade" over the standard Paljakka model, featuring a number of additional features and an overall stronger build:

  • Slightly thicker fiberglass body for added strength
  • White cargo cover and belt instead of blue
  • Steel pulling rods instead of aluminium
  • A complete spare steel pulling pole
  • Six steel D-rings on the inside for attaching heavy loads, AT mines, machine guns, ammunition etc
  • The carry handles are made of webbing instead of rope
  • There are carry handles on the sides, allowing four people to carry a heavy load comfortably
  • The end of the body features a reinforced point allowing the next skier to push the ahkio forward in difficult terrain
  • The Border ahkio is 2,5 kg heavier than the Paljakka, but this is but a fraction of the weight of the loads this thing is designed to carry
