British Windproof Trousers, DPM, surplus

Price 38.99 USD excluding VAT

Very good foul weather trousers - "foul" being just about any weather in the UK, so we trust the Brits to know what they are doing here. These are mostly 80's or 90's manufacture, mixed lot of CS95 and other models, mostly "Trousers, Arctic Windproof".

Very good foul weather trousers - "foul" being just about any weather in the UK, so we trust the Brits to know what they are doing here. These are mostly 80's or 90's manufacture, mixed lot of CS95 and other models, mostly "Trousers, Arctic Windproof".

These are basically a heavy duty version of standard combat trousers, so the fabric is weather resistant Ventile or lookalike. That's where the magic lies - it's a very tight weave, making it durable and especially good against the elements. The idea is that when cotton gets wet, it swells shut and slows down the process of the wearer getting wet. These are not rain trousers as such, but then again they breathe about a million times better than any Gore-Tex membrane ever will - excellent all around choice for the crappier months of the year. The brits also work some kind of magic on their uniforms, as they dry very quickly once the rainfall stops.

Washing and care

Wash in 40 degrees Celsius. Treat with a water-repelling spray: it helps keep the pants dry, so they breathe better.

Sizing

The sizing system is trouser inseam/waist in centimetres, with a hight waist, measure yours just below the navel.

Genuine Brit surplus

Genuine used British army surplus, made in the UK from proper fabric. Usually these are a bit more faded in appearance than the ones pictured. Availability is limited.

Lekan lisäksi toinenkin ylijäämäliike myy näitä Ventile-kankaisina, mikä on joko kummallista tietämättömyyttä tai törkeää tahallista harhaanjohtamista. Nämä ovat tiheää gabardiinityylistä puuvillaa, mutta eivät taatusti Ventileä. Ventileä ei briteissäkään jaettu nurmiporille eikä erikoisjoukoille missään vaiheessa, ainoastaan sodanajan lentäjille "selviytymishaalareina". Aito Ventile on täysin vedenpitävää myös kyllästämättömänä ja käytettynä, toisin kuin nämä pögät. Joka tapauksessa ehkä planeetan parhaat kenttähousut, paremmat kuin esim uudet sekoitekankaiset windproofit, mutta älä osta jos tahdot Ventileä.

Received mine today very pleased, like new condition hardly faded, smells like surplus. Sizes run large both waist and inseam. I'd guess the model in the photo is down a size probably two from his actual measurements. I don't mind the extra room for layers that what I wanted.
