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.
Jalas Fantom Drylock
In Finland the comic character "The Phantom" (you know, the butch guy who runs around the Bengal jungle in purple tights) is immensely popular. In fact he's so famous that Jalas actually went and named a boot after him. And a top quality boot it is too! We are especially thrilled, as these fit our wide, hairy Finnish hobbit feet well.
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.
Austrian Gore-Tex trousers, olive drab, surplus
Austrian Bundesheer Gore-Tex trousers. These simple overtrousers are meant to be worn in conjunction with standard field trousers, but work on their own well enough.
British MVP trousers, DPM, surplus
MVP is the British Army equivalent to Gore-Tex. It has exactly the same qualities: waterproof, but still breathable to a degree, unlike rubber. These are the trousers of the MVP uniform.
British MVP rain jacket, DPM, surplus
A high quality surplus rain jacket with the British DPM camo pattern. Waterproof and breathable, as they say, at least better than old rubber "crisp packet" suits.
BW pullover, surplus, blue
Navy blue German sweaters in used condition. Probably the best model around, even including the classic British jumper.
Särmä TST L3 Loft Jacket
A super lightweight and packable loft jacket for thermal insulation. Lightweight and breathable polyamide with Climashield continuous fiber filament insulation. A fantastic little bundle of warmth and happiness, this is something you want to bring with you where ever you go.
Särmä Zip-off trousers
These are lightweight trousers with a zip-off feature for intermediate weather such as British summer. We're not talking about sweatbags, yet these repel some water and wind. Should a shower cause these to soak, the fabric will dry rather quickly even as you wear them. These convert to 3/4 shorts and cover the knees.
Austrian Bundesheer Gore-Tex jacket. Cut very much like the US M65 field jacket, but is water- and windproof. An excellent fall/winter jacket with practical features and nice nonchalant colour scheme.
Zipper & snap closure, four front pockets with snap closure, a stow-away hood and generous cut, these are meant as the top layer. The Gore-Tex membrane is squeezed between two outer layers. Other than that, these don't have any lining whatsoever. However these are roomy; it's up to the user to dress accordingly.
These usually have a velcro name tag base on the chest and Bundesheer logo on the arm, or traces of one.
The composition of the outer fabric varies, it can be either 50/50% polycotton, 65/35% polycotton or 100% polyester. The membrane is proper Gore-Tex. 100% polyester lining.
First user's recommended chest circumference, then height, both in centimetres. Simple. These are a tad oversized to accommodate stuff underneath.
In used but serviceable condition and repaired when necessary. Although we can't give any 105% waterproofness guarantees in diving conditions for used membrane rainwear, these should do just fine.
Mine came without the waist strap... no problem but to fix it was a puzzle as the waist strap itselve was also missing,
but solved so here is the solution if you also find the waist strap missing:
Down at the bottom of the jacket are two little holes, two open parts that have not been sewed...
Wrap the coat inside out through the hole, until you find a blue(ish) section: that is the part where the waist strap must be inserted.
Insert the waist strap with a safety pin until you feel its inside the horizontal lining around the waist of the coat.
Squeeze until you reach the other end of the jacket.
The Goretex is a liner that is sewed all over the inside of the jacket. But directly next to the blue(ish) section there is a tiny hole in the Goretex,
That is where the waist strap must go through to get to the right side of the inside of the jacket.
Then it's a quest to find the iron hole where the strap must go in, repeat on the other side.
