Mil-Tec 3D Hollowfiber sleeping bag
We don't know how they could make this good a sleeping bag for such a low price, and frankly we don't care either. In short, this is a surprisingly high quality three-season bag, complete with a compression sack. A word of warining: if you are big, you will have a hard time fitting inside!
Carinthia Defence 4 sleeping bag
The Defence 4 may be Carinthias best all-around sleeping bag. Designed for cold and nasty weather, it's no surprise that (among others) also the Finnish army adopted this very model! This here is a reliable choice, designed for very demanding use!

A strong bag to haul about 10 litres of water. Will stand abuse and stay up on its own when full. Packs to a lump about the size of your fist. Needless to say, this would be a handy thing to have around when camping or hunting.
Savotta Hikimaja sauna with stove and stone rack
"Hikimaja" is essentially an easily transportable sauna for a few people. Trust us Finns on this, you'll get some pretty hot steams in here. Complete with a stove and stone rack! Do not order this to the US. These are not approved for sale there, you could get into trouble.
Bigger, stronger, better. A field cot with a reinforced construction and large size for taller and heavier fighters.
The model is similar to the US issue field cot with a few minor differences. The frame is aluminium and fabric is nylon. When unfolding and setting up, the fabric is pulled taut by the frame to all directions. Nothing provides better insulation from the cold ground as a foot of air, and bugs won't bother your sleep either. Of course it's just plain more comfortable too.
Assembly begins by unfolding the frame. Two separate end tubes are inserted into channels in the fabric and locked onto metal tabs in the frame. The other tube has two holes for corresponding tabs in one end of the frame, while the other has a spring-loaded tab, which makes the final stage of assembly vastly easier. If you only keep this in mind, assembly will be quick and easy. Disassembly begins by pulling the spring-loaded tab with the locking ring.
This field cot has a known issue with creaking: when the fabric is tensioned and chafes against the frame tubes, it vibrates loudly. This is easily fixed by passing pieces of fabric in between the nylon and aluminium. The sizes needed are roughly 90 x 15 cm (four pcs) for the sides and 60 x 15 cm (two pcs) for the end pieces. You can fix these pieces in place with glue, safety pins or a few stitches.
An assembled field cot measures 210 x 68 x 45 cm (length, width, height) and 100 x 21 x 14 cm when folded. Weight 9.2 kg. Maximum load 150 kg, as stated by the manufacturer. Probably more in reality, but our responsibility ends at 150 kg.
A green carrying bag with handles and zipper is supplied with the cot.
Factory new, made by Mil-Tec.
