Finnish army issue gray wool trousers with cargo pockets! Get yours now, these proper good stuff made in Finland of real wool. These are getting a bit rare.

Pretty straightforward cut, with straight leg, neat appearance, belt loops, button fly and sometimes buttons for braces. Some later production trousers might have random little luxuries like a bit of waterproof fabric hidden inside the knees or under foot straps (we won't pick, sorry). The cargo pockets are a rare animal in army issue wool trousers. The army used these both for barracks and field use, paired with either shoes or jackboots, with the trouser leg of course tucked into the boots.

Made from thick wool, very nice quality stuff, costs a fortune these days. On some specimens the tags say the material consists of "at least 85 % wool". Wash in 30 degrees if necessary, air dry only. Usually just brushing the dirt off is enough, these don't even stain easily.

No wonder that these were still issued in 2007 in the northernmost reaches of Finland. This fine tradition came to an end when the stockpiles of larger sizes ran out and the rest was sold off as surplus. For the modern man these present excellent value for money if you're after a pair of old timey, slightly bushcrafty wool trousers that actually don't fall apart in use.

Size info

First up is the Finnish army system (height as a vague number and then standard Euro size), in the brackets the recommended users height & waist. Note: The old Finnish trouser sizing runs pretty much a notch smaller than the nominal size (for example, size 52 would normally be made for 92 cm waist, but the Finnish fit is best for 88 cm waist). Look at our numbers!

Genuine Finnish surplus

Used, but in serviceable condition. In the worst case these might have some visible repairs here and there, however in the main picture is a pair of unissued trousers.

These pants are as close as one can get to "do all, go anywhere" pants. They are comfy, warm, no frills, and built like a tank. They all look to be in new condition. If it wasn't for a name and serial number on one pair, I would have been hard pressed to find evidence of wear. If you want quality, well built, comfortable, warm pants and you pass these up...then you are either brain dead or piss drunk. The price?...a bargain at 5 times what they ask.

Absolutely fantastic trousers for the price. My pair look unissued.

Very practical, heavy duty and they look nice as well.



The pictures and description do not show it, but they have adjustable loops for your feet (to prevent the legs from sliding up), and also suspender buttons apart from the typical belt loops.

En ihan uskonut miten hyvä materiaali sarka on housuissa ennen kuin käytin näitä syysvaelluksella. Satoi ja paistoi. Ovat lämpimät, mutta ei liian. Pieni sade ei tosiaankaan haittaa. Taskut on hyvät. Vyötärö korkea (kannattaa olla tarkkana ettei ota liian kapeita). Kannattaa ehdottomasti käyttää henkseleiden kanssa.

Sellasen huomion tein, että vähän vauhdikkaammassa menossa hiertävät sisäreisistä aika ikävästi. Sillon olis vähintään polvipituiset kalsarit hyvät.

- hyvät, vahvat & tyylikkäätkin:) sekä tietysti lämpimät
- outo juttu, mutta tilatessani viime vuonna kahdet samaa kokoa, ei toisia voi pitää; polvista 1,5cm kapeammat
- harmikseni Leka nosti hintoja viime kesästä, silti kannattava ostos
- nuotionkin ääreen pääsee, toisin, kuin nämä goretex. ja vastaavat eräilijät
- nyt kolmannet saatuani ei moittimista mittojen suhteen; kuin tehty!
- suosittelen

Parhaat kylmänajan retkeilyhousut ikinä. Piste.

Plussaa:
+ tyylikkäät
+ kunnon taskut
+ lämmittää alaselkää, kun on korkea vyötärö
+ hyvä kipinänkesto
+ tosi halvat

Miinusta:

- hiertää sisäreiteen ikävät jäljet, jos on lyhkäset kalsarit
