A comprehensive and functional four-season clothing system designed foremost for the Finnish military end-user. Our system offers significant improvements in weight-saving, comfort and functionality when compared to their Finnish Defence Forces standard issue counterparts. The less of a bottleneck your clothing and gear is the better you can focus on the task at hand.

The system is based on layered clothing principles and comprises everything from lightweight underwear to extreme weather shell garments, including regular field uniforms.

Dress properly - perform better

Our clothing system has all the necessary components to assemble functional outfits for varying seasons, weather conditions and missions. The simple truth is that you will sweat when straining, freeze when it´s freezing and get wet when it rains - even properly layered clothing is not going to change these laws of nature, but they will minimize the effects of elements on your performance.

All individual garments in our system are assigned to a specific level, each of which plays a specific part in the grander picture. The levels can be coarsely divided into two main categories: underwear - anything worn between your skin and your camouflage/shell garments, and outerwear - everything worn on top of your lower layers to protect them and you from the elements, abrasion and surveillance.

Choose what to wear based on the season, weather and your presumed activity level of the day. Don´t wear too much, as removing lower layers quickly can be a hassle. Instead, carry the appropriate extra layers of specific clothing you might need during breaks and other drops from the usual activity level. Our shell layers are designed for quick and easy donning and doffing over regular clothing and even load-bearing equipment.

Example setups

Warm summer, temperature: 15 – 30 ºC

Chilly autumn, temperature: 0 – 15 ºC

Cold winter, temperature: -15 – 0 ºC

Very cold winter, temperature: -30 – -15 ºC.

Lower layers

The primary functions of these layers are moisture management and thermal insulation. Proper lower layers help regulate your thermal load in varying conditions, thus contributing towards overall comfort and performance.

Lightweight and breathable materials provide good moisture management but are also vulnerable to abrasion. In the field, appropriate outerwear should always be worn both for camouflage and protection.

Outerwear

These garments offer protection from surrounding terrain, surveillance and the varying weather conditions of the four seasons. Breathable materials and ventilation zippers minimize thermal load, adding to the systems moisture management properties.
