Woly Protector 3 x 3 impregnation spray, 300 ml
This Woly preservative is designed to be used with all sorts of leather and textiles. This stuff is both dirt and water repellent.
Särmä merino socks
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.
Swiss gaiters, grey, surplus
Excellent gaiters for an insane price - who the hell decided to get rid of these for this cheap!? Swiss army surplus.
British Gore-Tex gaiters, DPM, surplus
Used DPM camouflaged gaiters. Current issue for the British army. Gaiters are a good accessory for cold weather and moving through wet foliage, because they protect the part that gets wet most easily, but don't wrap anything else in a sweat sack.
Jalas FX2 insoles
The insole of the latest Finnish army combat boot is a giant leap forward from the old stuff. This is yet another step forward, with an additional cushion in the ball of the foot. "The best thing since sliced bread", as one of our employees has been heard exclaiming. Repeatedly.
Alpina Trapper RJ Brown
Heavy duty full leather boots, lined with Sympatex. As you might have already guessed, these have all the nice features of proper modern boots meant for rough terrain.
Berghaus Vulcan rucksack
Probably the most beloved of all Berghaus rucksacks, the Vulcan represents an older, military design - simple and robust. An excellent ruck for military use and works equally well in civilian excursions, without even looking too warry.
Särmä knee socks, merino wool terry
Wool terry construction works amazingly well with socks, and even better with Merino wool. These knee-high socks are at their best during autumn, winter and spring, but thanks to the whole aforementioned terry thing, tend not to cause excessive sweating during summer months either. Made in Finland!
Särmä Erakko tarp, 2,5x2,5 m
Our very own little tarp, made in co-operation with DD Hammocks. Erakko (for all you foreign devils that´s "hermit" in Finnish) is as the name suggest a loners tarp, designed for packability whilst still being comfortably large enough for one person to sleep under. Lightweight and packable, this is one fantastic tarp for pitching one-man shelters!
Trangia 25-1UL 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 aluminium construction.
If you just want a pair of good hiking boots but don't need a very high shaft, these are the way to go. What's best about these is the very reasonable price, as these definitely are no winkywonky kiddie quality boots.
A modern hiking boot
- Outer material 2 mm thick nubuck leather
- Hooks on the top, lace locks in the center and quick lacing at the bottom
- Shock absorbing, non-slip sole, should not harden in freezing temperatures
- Waterproof and breathable Alpitex membrane
- Good factory insoles for a change.
In other words, excellent basic hiking boots for temperate climates where the conditions are predominantly quite wet or at least uncertain more often than not. Just add socks and they work in winter too.
Sizes in the Euro system. The last could be described as wide. These have some other size markings in the product itself that might vary between the production runs, but the Euro system is what these are made in and it stays the same.
