Duvet cover & pillow case, M05 camo patterns
Finally a proper good set of everynight sleeping accessories. There's just one downside - you might not find your bed anymore thanks to the Finnish M05 camo! On the upside if you manage to get between these, no-one can find you either.

PVC Character Patch

Finnish EM cockade, woven
A simple white & blue cloth enlisted men's cockade of the Finnish army. Sewn on the front of your hat. Any hat. Do it.

The "Finnish version" of the legendary P38 folding can opener. A damn nice thing to have when you come across canned food without ring pulls. These have a little hole for attaching to your dog tag chain.The blade locks in the open and closed positions for safe carry and easy use.
Definitely the most important article issued in the Finnish army is the standard cotton bed sheet. Many a reservist still sees nightmares of the endless lines of little rectangles not unlike a railroad to hell.
This bed cover has two purposes: first, it works as a bed cover (!). Secondly and most importantly, it's folded every fucking evening in a certain way and laid on top of the issue stool, forming a PINKKA, or pile. Now this is the most important soldier skill in the army, making this little folded rectangle and making it good enough to pass the sergeant's inspection. You don't pass, you don't go to sleep. And of course this goes for the whole unit: ONE is not good enough, then it's more honing and waiting. A proper way to build up team spirit and camraderie! Disclaimer: Our version is not at all perfect, but after being folded more than ten years since service, it's probably good enough for the purpose.
We even heard some ranger garrisons and such didn't have these fine traditions, wonder what meaningless tinkering they were doing instead?
Size 150 x 270 cm, the rectangles line up straight and all as these are from the same manufacturer that makes them for the army. The info stickers on these are curiously in Russian - maybe the Russian armed forces are the main customer. We'd be glad if they got to enjoy the same traditions as we do!
Our demonstration of this "pile" might not fulfill everyone's needs. That's why we organized a competition - whoever makes the best pile wins an M05 camouflaged bedsheet set!
Pinkka-contest is now over and we have found a winner! Congratulations @calamitymary we respect how much effort was put into this interpretation of Pinkka and how this is a beautiful picture by its own too???????? @calamitymary next we would like to see same thing made out of M05 bedsheets;) #varusteleka #pinkka #m05
