Genuine German army issue trousers cut down to shorts length by our supplier! In short, if you like the Flecktarn trousers - and who doesn't - these are just the same, but better for hot summer!
Like the older Moleskin trousers, these are rather simple and practical field trousers: zipper fly, about 3 cm wide belt loops and buttons for suspenders. The trousers have five pockets; two front pockets, one back pocket with a button and two cargo pockets, which are closed with two snap fasteners. The right side cargo pocket has a smaller pocket inside for a multitool, chocolate bar or whatever. The shortening job has been done professionally by East German labour in an unheated factory. The leg ends a few cm below the cargo pocket.
Materials used are 65% cotton and 35% polyester, 80/20% in some rare cases. We won't differentiate.
Sizes in waist / inseam in centimetres (inseam is measured from the crotch to the end of the leg). In the brackets you'll find the original BW trouser size. The inseams used to vary, but after shortening they are all 36 cm or a bit more.
Used, but washed and in overall nice shape. Military trousers as they are, these might have some repairs. Pictured are typical pairs.

Hemming on the shorts is neatly done. I'm 180 cm, the shorts end at the bottom of my knees when standing, a good length.

Got my normal pant size, and just as described, they fit perfect.
I got a pair that was pretty much like new, no repairs, barely any fading... and these will last!
Thank you Varusteleka; I don't know how you manage it, but you've got some of the best prices, some of the best variety and best shipping charges and I always seem to get my things within a week. Ordered Monday, received Friday.. and I'm in Canada. Really, the best surplus store I know.

Only sad part is that the thread holding the buttons are coming undone, but its surplus. I expected this at least, easily fixable at home if you know how to sew a little.
Would and probably will buy again!

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.
