Finnish M13 rain jacket
FDF model M-2013 rain jacket. "Pretty waterproof" can't be applied to this, it's more like "ridiculously wateproof". Generous cut to fit over everything else! If you are after a reliable 100% waterproof jacket, this is the one.
- Made to Finnish army spec - materials are milspec and NIR compliant
- The fabric is durable and extremely waterproof
- Generous cut!
A true hard shell!
The case with Gore-Tex is that you'll get a pretty waterproof and a little breathable garment. But when the rain intensifies, your hard shell might not cut it! That's why the Finnish army just decided to make the new rainwear from traditional materials which will definitely keep the weather at bay. Use the garment's ventilation features to keep cool and wear it only when needed and you'll be happy.
Zipper closure with snap flap, a good hood with the option to run a piece of copper wire inside the brim (FDF instructions), and simple flap-covered hem pockets. Adjustments in the hem, hood and cuffs, so you can make it a life-saving plastic bag if you really want to.
Size Large jacket weighs 600 grams.
Fabric and care
Finnish army spec PU coated fabric. Quite light, quite strong and definitely waterproof. The PU coating is naturally on the inside, while the exterior has a matte finish. NIR compliant camouflage print.
Machine wash in 40 degrees Celsius, hang dry if possible ut you can also use a dryer, max. 60 degrees Celsius. Home washing might affect the NIR properties!
Sizes in the simple S, M, L system. The chart below shows the actual measuremets of the garment. We suggest not giving those too much thought, as these are meant to fit over everything else and run large.

Made to FDF spec
These are factory surplus from an FDF contractor. The normal price for such a garment would probably be 20-30 % more than what these go for. Of course, these aren't available anywhere else, so that's that. Quite likely a one-off lot!
