  • <p>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.</p> <br>

    <p>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.</p><br>

    <p>The Border ahkio is a "military upgrade" over the standard Paljakka model, featuring a number of additional features and an overall stronger build:</p>
    <li>Slightly thicker fiberglass body for added strength</li>
    <li>White cargo cover and belt instead of blue</li>
    <li>A complete spare steel pulling pole</li>
    <li>Six steel D-rings on the inside for attaching heavy loads, AT mines, machine guns, ammunition etc</li>
    <li>The carry handles are made of webbing instead of rope</li>
    <li>There are carry handles on the sides, allowing four people to carry a heavy load comfortably</li>
    <li>The end of the body features a reinforced point allowing the next skier to push the ahkio forward in difficult terrain</li>
    <li>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</li>
