Austrian waterproof 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.
- Unlined shell trousers to guard against the elements
- Polyamide construction, with Gore-Tex or Sympatex membrane
- Generous cut: with only light clothing underneath, you can pick one size smaller than recommended
Simple and effective cut: zippered legs with velcro cuffs, elastic braces and adjustment at the waist. These sometimes have a light liner fabric inside, sometimes not. The colour varies from grayish olive drab to more brownish and greenish shades.
material and care
Top material usually 100 % polyamide, the waterproof layer always Gore-Tex or Sympatex.
We really suggest avoiding washing GTX garments, but if you really really have to, try machine-washing in 40 degrees Celsius with gentle cycle.
First is the easy size. In the brackets you'll find the user's recommended waist circumference / trouser inseam length in centimetres. Sizing runs very large as there are meant to be worn over normal clothing. If you intend to wear nothing but long johns under these, a size smaller might do.
The Austrian size system is explained in detail on our Austrian trouser sizes page. If you are already familiar with Austrian sizing and want to know how we came up with the easy sizes, below is our logic as a chart. All possible sizes in the chart are not manufactured of course.

Nyt löytyi varastosta käytännössä iskemättömät byysat ja ilman vuorta. Henkselit edelleen yhtä surkeat, mutta se korjaantuu pienellä ompelukoneen käytöllä kuten aiemminkin. Tällä kertaa tehdäänkin 40mm hihnasta josko pysyivät paremmin päällä ja korjataan sitten toisiinkin.

The big advantage here is the the more neutral colour and the fact that the sizing system has a lot more options.

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
