Original BUFF M05 neck tube15.99 EUR A modern warrior's lightweight alternative to the old German woolen neck tube. For some, Buff is synonymous with light neck tubes. A truly versatile piece of clothing which bends to a multitude of uses.
Soviet big black missile button switch, surplus9.99 EUR The internet is full of DIY nuke guides. There are mainly two problems: first, collecting radioactive material from smoke alarms is a bloody chore and second, you just can't find a good launch button from anywhere. Well, at least one of these problems has been remedied!
Dutch "General Ops" combat vest, surplus44.99 EUR The Dutch army does not fear copying stuff from anyone if it works. Seems like the British army General Ops vest was on the planning table, as is evident from this natural Dutch design.
Soviet sports shorts, surplus4.99 EUR Sports shots are available everywhere, but by virtue (or vice) they are your run-of-the-mill polyester horror, probably cobbled together in the vast slave labour factories of Bangladesh. These, however, are made of cotton satin, like many fancier bedsheets. Why shouldn't there be a touch of luxury in sportswear too?
Särmä Wool Fleece Jacket, black79.99 EUR If you thought fleece couldn't be improved, think again: with the help of natural fibres we did just that. The Särmä Wool Fleece Jacket has a reduced amount of polyester to avoid microplastic pollution, but also introduce some flame-resistance to a garment which generally shouldn't be near a fire at all. Hood sold separately for those who'd prefer to have it.
Särmä Worker Flat Cap, brown34.99 EUR A basic flat cap, and that's what's so nice about these; timeless colour and form, no flashy logos or ugly details. It's a hat you could wear with anything. At the same time this cap will demilitarize anything else you are wearing. Just add braces to your trousers and you look all ready for a proper bar fight!
Särmä Common Jeans, blue59.99 EUR Our staff is usually fully clothed in Varusteleka, but there was one constant exception: they wear jeans, and we didn't have them. We fixed this fault by making Good Ol' Proper Jeans.
Särmä Worker Trousers, brown79.99 EUR Classic design back when men's clothing was both practical and good looking. The best thing about these are the darts in the back and pleats in front. These give more room around the hip area, so the trousers do not crush your balls like all modern trousers do.
Särmä TST mittens w/ trigger finger59.99 EUR Made in Finland. Proper simple, rugged and functional outer shell mittens for military use. Trigger finger and leather/fabric construction with breathable Finnish M05 camouflage fabric shaft.
Särmä merino gloves9.99 EUR Made in Finland. Good quality made-in-Finland knit gloves from super-duper material. Good as they are for a bit chilly conditions, for serious cold these do well as insulating layer for hard shell gloves. How can they make these so cheap in Finland?
Särmä heavy neck tube, Merino wool19.99 EUR Made in Finland. A thick merino wool buff. Long enough to cover neck and head and can be folded in half for extra warmth and insulation. These are surprisingly affordable considering the material quality and the fact that these are made right here in Finland!
Särmä Commando cap, merino wool, camo19.99 EUR Made in Finland. The Finnish army "commando cap" is far more than just any woolly watch cap, it's something of a Finnish military tradition and very functional too, the double layered constrution giving it added warmth and insulation.
