Särmä M16 Wool Jacket
Old military surplus wool clothing is great for outdoor activities in cold weather, but the downside is that most of the designs are heavily outdated and often not very practical. That´s why we made this: modern and functional design made from proper high quality wool fabric!

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.
The chest pockets double up as ventilation zippers, these go straight into the mesh liner of the jacket. All zippers and buttons are covered to prevent snags and noise. The reinforcements on the shoulders and elbows also offer some protection against light rain, even more so if treated with wax or similar waterproofing.
We chose hook-and-loop for the cuff adjustments due to it's stepless adjustment, unlike buttons, and it´s low profile. If some super hardcore hunter get´s riled up because of the horrific noise hook-and-loop makes here´s a little tip: you don´t need to play with your cuffs whilst stalking!
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.
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!
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.
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!
Särmä products are covered by a 12-month warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. For further information please read our detailed warranty guide.

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).

I always layer up for the weather and this jacket will do great as my outer layer.

Medium regular istuu tismalleen sopivasti, kun alla on kerrasto, kauluspaita ja paksu villaneule. Ruumiinmitat: pituus 176, rinta 93, paino 67.
Kaksisuuntainen vetoketju ja vahvempaa kangasta taskujen vuorauksiin, kuten Alan alempana ehdotti, ja tämä olisi paras talvitakki ikinä. Että vink vink Varusteleka, älkää nyt munatko tätä.
