Särmä Shorts

Price 29.99 USD excluding VAT

Lightweight, practical and comfy polycotton ripstop shorts with an excellent cut. We'd been looking to make good shorts and the solution was simply to take nice military-style pants and cut the leg above the knee! Because we had these made in huge volumes, the end price could be kept very reasonable.

Lightweight, practical and comfy polycotton ripstop shorts with an excellent cut. We'd been looking to make good shorts and the solution was simply to take nice military-style pants and cut the leg above the knee! Because we had these made in huge volumes, the end price could be kept very reasonable.

  • Your standard handy cargo shorts
  • Button fly & high waist
  • 65/35% polycotton ripstop
  • Button adjustment tabs on both sides for the waist

Features

These have a high waist, at least compared to modern standards. It's just slightly higher at the back. This is welcome news for any gentleman who likes to tuck his shirt in, but also suits the barbarian whose unsightly butt crack would otherwise probably show when sitting.

Cut designed for ease of movement and "just enough" length. Reinforced seat.

Button fly. The belt loops are 50 mm (2"), large enough for combat belts. Button adjustment at the waist.

Pockets

Large, bellowed cargo pockets with velcro closure. The rear of the flap is sewn on the leg to prevent it from getting dog-eared. As a nice bonus, these do not stand out much when empty.

  • Standard slash pockets. These are pretty much like in many jeans, slightly more on the front side.
  • A "smart phone pocket" on the front.
  • Back pockets with velcro closure.

Material

Made of ripstop-reinforced 65/35% polyester/cotton. Light enough to be very airy and comfy, but probably about as strong as bit thicker 100% cotton ripstop.

Some color may transfer from the product before the first wash. Wash at 30 degrees Celsius (86 F).

Sizing

The menu shows the recommended user waist circumference, but for those who want exact measurements please refer to the following table. The inseam increases gradually with 0.4" increments from 12" (Small) to 14" (2X-Large).

Susirajalta asti ajettiin hakemaan särmät kesähousut. Shortseja sovittaessa koko oli ullatus; mitoilla 182cm/102kg varustettuna oon aina ollu xl. Nyt äksällät tipahti nilkkoihin. L oli kooltaan just eikä melekein. Kangas mukavan kevyt mutta silti jämäkkä. Älypuhelin taskut riittävän syvät S5:lle. Vyötärön korkeus vois olla hieman matalampi, Leviksen 501:een verrattuna näissä hieman korkeampi. Ostan toisetkin.

- ehkä paras leikkaus, mitä nähty shortseissa, taskuja riittävästi & tehty hyvästä kankaasta (ei repeä, kuten tavallinen cottoni)

- erittäin hyvä hinta/laatusuhde (ei paljon kannata alkaa itse alusta lähtien ompelemaan)

- jos sitten jotain sanomista, niin vetoketjujen ystävänä ottaisin mielelläni vetskarin napituksen sijaan

- toisaalta napit saa ommeltua vaikka retkellä (yritäpä samaa vetoketjun kanssa...)

- normaalisti L-kokoisena otin M:n, joka istuu hyvin

- suosittelen, mitä lämpimimmin!

- velcrot raapivat sormet taskuja avattaessa, joten muutin 15mm:n neppari-versioksi

Very high value product. These shorts are great. Very confortable and adjustable. The pockets are of generous size but they also keep tight to the body. The hook and loop on the cargo and rear pockets are very grippy and you don't have to worry about losing anything from those pockets. Just an all around great product.

Muutamia huomioita. Shortsit olleet käytössä about kuukauden.
-Taskuja itselle liikaa. Kännipäissäni olen luullut hukanneeni tupakat, mutta ne ovatkin olleet "kännykkä" taskussa, eikä varsinaisessa taskussa.
- Autoa ajaessa perustaskuista on lähes mahdotonta kaivaa esim. Puhelinta (galaxy note 3).
- Kokoni on large regular ja näiden leikkaus puristaa munista. Isommat tuskin pysyisivät jalassa.
- Eivät kuitenkaan ole hinnalla pilatut ja näyttävät ihan hyvältä.
- Reisitaskujen velcrosulku on ollut toistaiseksi ihan jees.
- Vyölenkkejä liian vähän. Oma särmä 50mm kasviparkkivyön "häntä" jää pari senttiä lyhyeksi vyölenkistä ja se lerpattaa ärsyttävästi.

Hinnan puolesta voin suositella!

Viime kesänä hain ennen lähtöä liikkeestä, oli erittäin mukavat, ei juuri hiostaneet vaikka Minnesotassa oli yli30 lämmintä koko viikon.
- passit/rahat pysyy hyvässä tallessa reisitaskussa.

Very practical shorts, plenty of pockets and good quality. However the fit is very baggy for me, if you're on the slim side get a size below what you usually do. I have the problem of the waist being too big, but when I wear a belt the pockets fold up and look daft.

Another quality Särmä product. This material feels very tough. I'm about 170 cm and 74kg with an athletic build (bigger legs and ass - I stay away from slim fit stuff). The medium regular is a good fit for me - perfect around the waist and thighs but maybe just a tiny tiny bit tighter than I'd like around the ass. When I squat it puts a little strain on the seams but I have a lot of confidence in the quality and the material so I'm not too concerned.

I recently tested these out on a trip to the Caribbean. I love the fit and the pocket layout is great. These are my new favourite shorts. I will be buying more.
