Sometimes there's no need to come up with new ideas, just dig them from the past - during the war years, the Finnish army had a very spiffy leather jacket issued to tank crews. Just like tanks, these jackets were few and far between. We did some intensive research and decided to revive these glorious relics, and here they are! A high quality reproduction of this fantastic piece.

A Finnish army experimental water bottle, used in the 80's. If you collect this junk, here's a chance to own a piece of something exotic.

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. 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 in centimetres. 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!

Condition

Used, but in serviceable condition. 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

Mahtavat housut kaikenlaiseen ulkoiluun kolmena vuodenaikana, omistan kahdet. Hyvä leikkaus, erinomainen ja lämmin materiaali (myös kastuneena) sekä kätevät taskut. Ainoana miinuksena ne polvivahvikkeet käyvät hieman kylmiksi, jos käyttää pakkasella eikä ole pitkiä kalsareita alla.

Mustana nämä ovat tyylikkäät arkikäytössäkin kun leikkaa reisitaskut pois. Kannattaa myös ostaa omaa kokoaan yhtä isommat, sillä valtion pukutehdas on viisaudessaan sisällyttänyt yhteen kokoon tavallaan kaksi kokoa - housuissa on vyötärön takaosassa ylimääräistä kangasta ommeltuna kiinni, ja ompeleet purkamalla housujen leveyskoko suurenee.

Should I compare these to a summer's day? They're cozy and nice to look at, certainly. I'd rather compare them to their Swiss and Swedish counterparts though. While the Swiss are of a somewhat aquamarine shade and the Swedes of a brownish gray, these are of a very neutral, cold grey. The Swiss are probably the most elegant with their old-timey piping and and the Swedes the most tactical with their belt-fastened ankle-closure, well secured cargo pockets and even a tab in the back to hang them from if they ever got wet. The Finnish model stands among the three as the one most suitable for everyday wear, decidedly more modern than the Swiss and more subdued than the Swedish trousers, because let's face it, belted ankles will get you weird looks almost anywhere. Not the Finnish M65 trousers, these will earn you compliments from even the most civil-minded of people, being as lean, as timeless and as minimalistic as they are. Still, these are hard-wearing and made for field use, no matter how "casual" they may look. Another advantage they have over the Swiss and (most of the) Swedish models is that they can fit a proper belt. Needless to say, these are among my favourite garments and I hope they will be restocked at some point in the future.
