Särmä Assault Pack
Good and affordable urban rucksack of our own design - partially, at least. Just enough different compartments, compact dimensions but expands a lot (even further with extra pouches). If you have a lot of stuff that has to be accessed all the time, this is the thing for you.
Scho-Ka-Kola, 100 g Tin Box
This is the famous German energy chocolate you're looking for! This brown gold in the easily recognizable round tin box has kept ze Germans awake and efficient since the 1930s. Scho-Ka-Kola is chocolate with lots of caffeine, essentially a mild combat drug! (Contrary to rumors, the recipe never included other psychoactive stimulants apart from caffeine.)
Särmä Viscose Boxers
Proper good boxer shorts for an affordable price - these are more like the Common Man version of the Merino wool model we also sell. Being made of viscose, these have sort of poor man's versions of many of the good characteristics of wool. And thus much better than cotton!
Särmä Merino Socks
9.99 - 12.99 USD
If you still use cotton socks, dump them now and get these instead. These are superb for outdoor use, but work just as well as formal wear too! These aren't thick, so they can be used around the year. Made with our own specs in Finland.
Särmä Merino Wool Hoodie
119.99 - 149.99 USD
Finally, a proper hoodie - in this case, the price doesn't come from a big name, but rather from the material, which is thickish Merino wool, which is probably the best fabric ever. Oh, and we haven't forgotten to design the cut properly too. Whether you like to move on foot or two wheels, for the love of God buy this!
Särmä TST L1 Balaclava, Merino Wool
A functional multi-purpose piece of headgear, can be worn as a balaclava or folded up to form a cap or folded down to form a tube scarf. Lightweight merino wool construction, highly breathable, comfortable and moisture-wicking.
Kalakalle Fish Cock, 182 g, canned
A traditional Finnish delicacy in a can. 5 years of shelf life and no cock included! In case the "Fish Cock" doesn't tell you anything, it's a Finnish specialty - fish baked inside rye bread. This is a perfect snack or trekking food, always ready to eat, and contains enough energy to keep you going and enough high-quality protein to keep you in shape.
Särmä Rain Poncho
A standard waterproof poncho is probably one of the most versatile things you can own. This lightweight model is easy to carry with you anywhere and offers easy protection from wind and rain. A good range of colors serves a multitude of users, depending on if you want to be seen or not draw too much attention.
Särmä reflective patch, 80 x 50 mm
A simple reflective patch with hook and loop attachment. Please note that these do not fulfill the EN 13356 standard, which officially identifies an object as a reflector.
Särmä Hiking Socks, Merino Wool
13.99 - 17.99 USD
Anatomically designed hiking socks for demanding users and people who appreciate extra comfort in everyday life. Särmä Hiking Socks are made of lofty knit, moisture-wicking and have a proper fit to prevent blisters and keep you walking all day.
Terävä Skrama 240, Carbon Steel
74.99 - 114.99 USD
The Skrama is a versatile heavy-duty bush knife - a tool that builds shelters chops firewood and even carves feather sticks! If you're taking just one knife into the bush the Skrama is a viable option. This is naturally no axe, nor a precision tool for extremely meticulous work, but something in between and a solid and dependable companion above all.
Särmä Merino Watch Cap
Standard woolly cap engineered to its full potential. Superb fit, uncompromising workmanship and the best possible materials don't come cheap but this one should last for a lifetime, provided you don't lose it.
Särmä Animals Morale Patch
Are you a nature fan or simply just a mystical and sexy misanthrope? Here are a bunch of domestic, wild, and imaginary animals in the form of morale patches. Put on your clothes or backpack or distribute them to your minions when they do something praiseworthy to earn a promotion in your cult.
Särmä Trouser Belt
A simple trouser belt, easily shortened to any desired length. Made from strong black webbing with a nickel-free steel buckle.
Särmä TST L1 Merino Wool Beanie
Sometimes it´s the little things that make all the difference, this thin, lightweight merino cap is a fantastic piece of merino woolly coziness in a very handy little package. Fits right in your pocket and is lightweight enough for high activity wear. Fits perfectly under helmets and other headwear too!
Särmä Merino Gloves
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 an insulating layer for hard shell gloves. How can they make these so cheap in Finland?
Särmä Fabric Wax
Believe it or not, there was a time before spray-on treatments and polymer technology, but conditions were as unforgiving as ever. Protection from wind and water was a necessity, which was met with waxed canvas. A combination of paraffin and beeswax is a time-proven way to treat cotton and mixed fabrics to be wind- and waterproof, right on the spots you want it to be.
Terävä Jääkäripuukko 110, Carbon Steel
46.99 - 86.99 USD
No fancy bullshit, the Jääkäripuukko is simply a proper no-nonsense utility knife. These come in various sizes. Jääkäripuukko 110 is an excellent all-round knife for just about any tasks, it's best paired up with something bigger such as an axe or the Skrama. Quality carbon steel, traditional Finnish puukko blade profile with a slight drop point. The Jääkäripuukko is not designed to sit on a shelf for decoration, this is an honest tool made for hard work.
Terävä Jääkäripuukko 140, Carbon Steel
49.99 - 89.99 USD
Jääkäripuukko 140 might be a bit "clumsier" than Jääkäripuukko 110. On the other hand, the long blade makes it a bit better at chopping through saplings and firewood. Quality carbon steel, traditional Finnish puukko blade profile with a slight drop point. The Jääkäripuukko is not designed to sit on a shelf for decoration; this is an honest tool made for hard work.
Light My Fire FireSteel Bio Army
Probably the best fire steel there is! This is the army model with an extra thick rod, which means more sparks and longer service life. Comes with a very well-made scratcher which really gives good, strong spark showers and doubles up as an emergency whistle.
Tired of shabby baseball caps? Here's a proper one! Say what you will, there's always a demand for yer standard baseball cap. But this ain't no cheapo crap, it's a solid, well-made cap - after all, it carries our name.
Finnish Canteen, 1 l
Finnish Army current model canteen. A very practical water bottle with a large opening and a metal hook for carrying without a pouch. You know this piece of kit is pretty good because the soldiers don't complain about it.
Kuivalihakundi Beef Jerky, 150 g
Probably the best beef jerky we've sunk our teeth in. Moreover, it comes in bigger 150 g portions and is made entirely in Finland, from Finnish beef, and contains no suspicious additives - an honest meat product through and through.
Särmä TST L1 Liner Gloves, Merino Wool
Cold and nasty weather is a very difficult environment for tasks that demand nimble fingers. The L1 liner gloves were designed to solve this very problem! These thin and snug-fitting merino liners fit under regular gloves to offer additional insulation without sacrificing the fine use of your fingers.
Terävä Skrama 200, Carbon Steel
74.99 - 114.99 USD
The Skrama is a versatile heavy-duty bush knife - a tool for chopping, splitting, and even whittling feather sticks! The Skrama 200 is more than a knife but lighter than a bill; above all a solid and dependable companion for carrying comfortably on your belt.
Särmä Cap with mesh
Here's a trucker cap with mesh. Say what you will, there's always a demand for yer standard baseball cap. But this ain't no cheapo crap, it's a solid, well-made cap - after all, it carries our name.
Särmä TST L1 Long Johns, Merino Wool
Highly functional lightweight long underpants for active wear. Snug fit, strong and stretchy material, and the naturally moisture wicking and comfortable merino wool are what makes these what they are, a great and reliable choice for demanding use.
Särmä TST Operator Cap
Finally we have our own operator cap a.k.a contractor cap for all security and military operators and tactical action Jacksons. The design is quite similar to our Särmä Cap but it is made from different materials and it comes with a few operator-friendly tweaks.
Carinthia IA Down Sleeping Bag
How would you feel about a high quality unused winter down sleeping bag but at quite a bit lower price than usual? We bought a batch of these army winter sleeping bags that were never issued. These come with a compression bag that will pack these very small.
Särmä TST Dry Bag
24.99 - 44.99 USD
Lightweight, a waterproof dry bag with roll-top closure. A basic piece of kit that can be used to organize and waterproof your gear inside your pack or lashed to its outside. Available in NIR-compliant camouflage print and more traditional green.
DD Hammocks Tree Huggers
The Tree Huggers is DD Hammocks's clever, quic,k and knotless hammock attachment system for trees and other phallic objects. Just loop the webbing around the tree trunk and attach the hammock lines to the loops!
Särmä TST Medical patch
A small velcro patch indicating the presence of medical supplies or aid. Hook-and-loop attachment for pouches, packs, and clothing. Size 4 x 4 cm / 1.5" x 1.5". The full-color version also doubles up as a Swiss flag!
Särmä Winter Camp Morale Patch
Winter camping is the best thing there is. Here’s a morale patch for all of you who love campfires under the stars, snowy treetops, and quiet forests. Slap this on and dream of the Northern Lights.
Särmä TST L1 Coolmax T-shirt
A moisture-wicking Coolmax T-shirt for demanding use. Available in solid colors and camo. Snug active fit, long hem, flatlock seams, and raglan sleeves ensure minimum chafing and great comfort in even the toughest uses.
DD Hammocks Whoopie Slings
The Whoopie Slings are a fine example of simple yet extremely clever design. These offer an easy and clean way to adjust your hammock! The Whoopie Slings replace the original ropes of the hammock and work with basically any hammock that has channels for ropes at the ends.
Särmä Hobo Stove
19.99 - 44.99 USD
24.99 - 44.99 USD
A wood-burning hobo stove of Finnish design! This might not be the prettiest or lightest stove out there but it works, packs incredibly flat, and is modestly priced. Available in two sizes for normal and larger fire needs. The stove comes with a sturdy M05-patterned carry bag.
Light My Fire Spork O
In Finland we have this thing called LuHa. In Sweden, they made a Spork. We'd prefer the LuHa but you can have a Spork too if you want. It's OK for light use but not strong enough to maim your enemy after digging a foxhole.
Dark, strong, and maybe a bit soft & smooth too, just like the Finnish mentality. This brisk coffee really kicks you up in the morning and tastes heavenly outdoors.
Särmä TST Tarp, M05 woodland camo
159.99 - 189.99 USD
Tarps are great, easy to use, easy to carry, and very versatile. The Särmä TST Tarp follows the basic tarp design rules but is made to meet Finnish military end-user requirements, including NIR-compliant M05 camouflage print. Available in two sizes, larger for 2-3 persons and smaller for 1-2 persons.
DD Hammocks Frontline Hammock
Frontline is the flagship hammock of DD Hammocks. With this it doesn't really matter where you go, the hammock has clever little features that make it suitable for just about any weather or climate. No wonder many soldiers of the British armed forces love these!
Source ILPS hydration reservoir, w/ UTA-adapter, 2-3L
Integrated Low Profile System - an extremely low profile hydration bladder designed for integration with body armor, works equally well inside a rucksack too naturally. Comes with the UTA-adapter, a handy little device with which you can fill the reservoir without digging it out of your backpack or vest.
Fenix HM23 Headlamp
The Fenix HM23 is a compact and lightweight headlamp that operates on a single AA battery (included). The lamp weighs only 66 grams with a battery, it is great for running, hiking, and other high movement activities.
Trangia coffee pot for 25 series stoves, 0.9L
A coffee pot for the larger Trangia stoves (25 series). Designed for use with the Trangia spirit stove, but performs very well with basically any stove out there, or even over an open fire! This is a smart and efficient way to boil water, brew hot drinks, or even boil eggs. A fantastic choice for outdoor cooking.
Trangia 25-1UL Camping Stove
The Trangia spirit burner stoves are pretty legendary, at least here in Scandinavia. These have for a long time been the go-to stove for hikers and the military alike. The Trangia is not a state of the art piece of high-tech cookware, but a simple and extremely reliable stove that is easy to use, versatile, and very effective. Model 25 is the larger model, designed for cooking larger meals for more than one person. Basic ultralight aluminum construction.
Särmä Camp Morale Patch
Here’s a patch for all those who love traditional bushcraft and camping. Pictured is a traditional Finnish camp in the wilderness with rakovalkea, a type of open fire where the fire burns in the crack between two large dry pine logs. It was the savior of many a hunter and traveler when they slept in the wilderness in cold snowy winter. Slap in on your sleeve or pack and dream of the next trip into the wilderness while walking to work in town.
The traditional Shemagh scarf, which has, surprisingly enough, found its way to western military use. Many colors available.
