Finnish MILSPEC materials
Filled wit the same polyester stuff as found on the army issue uniforms. While it does its job, we have to say our own Särmä TST cold weather trousers have a much better insulation layer.
The outer fabric (Viking by Carrington) is 70/30 polycotton, the exact same material used in the latest production runs of the official issue uniforms. Naturally the camo print is totally NIR compliant, so you don´t need to fear looking all lit-up when viewed through NVDs.
To make sure the fabric does not lose it´s NIR compliant properties we recommend careful wash using only detergents that are free of optical brighteners, basically the more natural you get the better.
These are sized according to the official Finnish military system, the first digit of the three numbers stands for user height (6: 160-170 cm, 7: 170-180 cm, 8 180-190 cm, 9 190-200 cm) and the following two are the width (chest) according to the European system. In case of jackets this is the wearers optimal chest circumference divided by two (size 48 = 96 cm).
These are generously sized to accommodate warm base and mid layer clothing. The M05 cold weather parka was designed for wear over warm mid layers and even the standard camo uniform and fighting gear. The idea is that you can throw this over you when taking a five minute break from fighting, this requires it to be generously loose fitting. If you want a "better" fit we recommend downsizing one step.
Using the waist and hem drawstring the jacket can easily be adjusted for a custom fit.
Sewn in Estonia
These are sewn in Estonia, at a factory that has a long history of producing quality clothing for military, law enforcement agencies.
Dead stock from Inttistore Ltd.
A company called Inttistore went under and we bought the whole stock, that's where these are from. These are cheaper across the board than they originally retailed for, and present excellent bang for the buck.
