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 and are Desert DPM camouflaged.

The trousers are simple overtrousers meant only to protect from rain and wind, not offer insulation or carrying capacity. Packs small, weighs almost nothing. If you are after a pair of low-cost durable no-nonsense GTX pants, these are the ticket. No big loss if they get damaged, this is a BIG plus in surplus. Of course being army issue stuff they are pretty durable to begin with.

A note about the membrane. While it's true the MVP (Moisture Vapour Permeable) membrane lets some moisture out just like Gore-Tex, it's not a magic do-it-all fabric. It's best used as rainwear, or as a windproof layer in stationary use. In heavy activity you will likely get wet from the inside.

We occasionally get trousers with side zippers. These are listed separately on the drop-down box when available. These don't have an elastic waist, but do have drawcord tightening.

Care

Please note that clothes with a membrane require care to retain their waterproof properties. Washing should be done in lukewarm water, by hand with a special detergent. Periodic waterproofing treatment is recommended by washing in, spraying on, or both.

Size

First leg inseam, then waist circumference in centimetres. The sizes run large, as the trousers are supposed to be used over everything else. So if your waist is about 84 cm, pick that size of the trousers and you get a good fit. The suitable leg inseam is easy to find out - just measure the distance from the crotch to the leg cuff of a pair that you already have.

Used surplus

Used, but in good serviceable condition.

Hyvät housut , yhdessä takin kanssa varsinkin, eivät kiristä, hengittävät ja pitävät sateenkin eikä kuviokaan ole hassumpi.

Hyvin pitää vettä. On myös suht lämmin ainakin pyöräilykäytössä, ainakin jos ylämäkiä pääsee polkemaan.
