Now this is Something with a capital S! A high quality, modern military style wool jacket for demanding outdoors use. Functional design, high quality materials and excellent workmanship.

Gosh darn it! Making proper wool clothing in 2017 is just not easy! Unfortunately it appears that we will not be able to have these restocked until 2018, problems with the wool fabric supplier turned out to be a bottleneck in production.

Old military wool clothing is great for outdoor activities up here in the north, but the downside is that most of that stuff looks and feels like it was made for Napoleons army. The Särmä M16 is a modern military inspired wool clothing system, something we could only dream of until now!

Simple but functional design

The M16 wool jacket is designed for manouverability and functionality. The key points here are a functional active fit, unlike most old miltary wool tunics this thing is made for moving around in, not just for standing on a parade square. You have enough pockets to carry your daily trinkets around, both big and small. Critical points such as elbows and shoulders are reinforced to protect the wool against abrasions when moving in rough terrain.

  • Full length zip up front with a buttoned storm flap.
  • High collar for protection against wind and weather.
  • Flat zippered chest pockets. These can also be used as ventilation slits as the zipper goes through the wool shell and the pocket is made from mesh.
  • Large hem pockets with super secure "fold down over itself" openings.
  • Arm pockets on both sleeves, with zippers.
  • All zippers have webbing pull tabs to ease use with gloves on.
  • Elbows and shoulders reinforced to withstand hard wear. There´s naturally wool under all these reinforcements.
  • The upper torso is lined with a comfy, breathable mesh.
  • Elastic waist and hem drawcords for adjustment. The hem can be rolled up for added wind protection.
  • Button adjustable cuffs.
  • Canadian style slotted buttons all over.

Materials

High quality European wool frieze

Wool is an incredible material for outdoors clothing, keeps you warm, dry and breathes better than anything. We're proud to say that this wool frieze is the best we could get our hands on! If you're going to make wool clothing you better do it properly, using cheapo wool would just throw the whole idea out the window. This material should satisfy even the most discriminating wool fanatics!

Content: 80% wool and 20% polyamide. The small polyamide content is added to the mix to reinforce the otherwise short fibred and therefore not-so-wear-resistant natural wool, making it tougher and more long lived.

Reinforcements

65% polyester, 35% cotton. A very wear and tear resistant strong textile blend, this exact same fabric is used on military and LE clothing, it's safe to say this fabric has proven itself in vigorous testing.

Wash and care

As these are made of wool we do not recommend machine washing! The best way to keep wool clothing clean is to simply brush off any dirt and if necessary wipe it with a wet cloth. Air dry only!

Sizing

This is very simple, Small, Medium etc. for width and Regular and Long for height, followed by recommended user height and chest circumference in centimeters. These are loose fitting so you can wear a wool sweater etc. underneath.

Varusteleka Särmä

Särmä is our own brand of clothing, accessories and gear. Our goal is to make functional clothing and other products for a multitude of uses and users. The M16 line of wool clothing is high quality outdoorswear, worth every penny!

Sewn in Estonia

These are sewn at the same factory that makes our M05 camo clothing. The same makers have also made clothing and gear for the Finnish military, police and other quite demanding customers.

The materials seem superb, along with the workmanship. Fit is spot on as per the measurements on the website I am about 180cms tall, with a chest measuring some 108 cams. I went for a Large Long size relying on there being room to allow other garments underneath it, and it has proved to be spot on with me being able to wear baselayer, mid layer, Swiss army pullover under it and still be able to move freely. Wore it initially to help with a near 30 degree effective drop in temperature following a holiday abroad and returning to -6 Celsius. Got the hood as well and once attached it has proved to be effective in cold wind although two of the cord locks on the adjusters required dismantling and fixing before working properly.
Minor issues (other than the easily fixed cord locks) - could do with a two way main zip to allow for easier access when answering calls of nature, hand warmer pockets behind the main pockets (as on the British Windproof Smock) and lining to the main cargo pockets so that items such as keys do not catch on the wool fabric. None of those detract from what is obviously a quality jacket and eminently usable in the winter. Easy to move in, very comfortable to wear - looking forward to seeing how it deals with the rigours of farm, woods and winter in the U.K. Initial signs are encouraging and it has become my jacket of choice for work since I bought it at the start of winter..
Update after 2 months of use: used in all weathers. Has proved to be warm and comfortable through wind, rain, sleet, frost and snow. Even warm when apparently soaked through - but I was dry underneath it. The reinforcements on the shoulders seem to take a water repellent treatment well. Dirt is easily brushed off (I have kept it away from the machinery oils around the farm).
