Finnish M91 camouflage uniform

The pre-M/05 camouflage is the M/91. The cut is basically the same. These are made to army spec, very high quality stuff. One-off lot!

A local legend, the reversible M62 camouflage field uniform drags us back to the good old bad old days when zippers were unheard of and waterproofness meant a vinyl poncho.

In '62, the Finnish army was surprisingly modern - on paper. We had reversible camouflage uniforms, proper assault rifles and everything. The thing was, all the nice new kit was kept tightly locked and just about everyone kept using World War 2 style stuff from uniforms to rifles until the late Cold War period when the formerly modern gear finally became widespread issue. The huge stockpiles of unissued M/62 camouflage uniforms released into the market in the early 2000's are a grim reminder how much they actually had stuff hoarded away. Meanwhile the same old used uniforms circulated among the conscripts until you couldn't tell which one was the white side.

As said, the M/62 is a reversible uniform. It has both summer and winter side. When the snow falls you flip it around and when it melts away during the spring you flip it around again - no wash needed! A bit like underwear...

The trousers have an extremely loose cut, button fly and two "false" pockets on the sides for playing with your jewels, or to access the pockets of the wool trousers worn underneath in cold weather.
The pants also have two cargo pockets: one on each side (summer/winter). Normally the trousers are worn with snap-hook braces, so the Finnish army saw no need for belt loops. However, the waist can be tightened with a simple tie-string.

A word about the camouflage: the colour shades vary like in the acid-infested art videos from the 60's, see the extra pictures - there can be even many different shades in the same garment! That's the way it goes, naturally the army doesn't give a shit about issuing "matching" rags, and we don't either. Accept this fact when ordering. We will not pick the shades, sorry! You'll get what you get, just like if you were a conscript in the Finnish army! At least you can pick the size though.

Size

Sizes in the standard euro system, and run quite large sideways. Don't be too picky, this will look like crap on you anyway, and compliments the black wellies normally worn with it rather nicely. We also got issued totally wrong sizes in the army, so it's only realistic not to care! Just make sure it's not too small and you're good to go.

Used condition

These are mostly used and have already been broken in! The superior features and brilliant original shade variations are displayed with unissued uniforms.

Perinteet kunniaan. Tippa linssissä kun muisteli, ah niin ihanaa kesä-intti-aikaa jonka vietin Vekaranjärvellä tälläiset pöksyt jalassa.


Ilmavat, upeat, toimiva, ja helppo pääsy konehuoneeseen.


Pari nappia ja narukiristys, mikään ei voi mennä vikaan näitten kanssa.
