Very lightweight and packable loft trousers for thermal insulation. Lightweight and breathable polyamide with Climashield continuous fiber filament insulation. A fantastic little bundle of warmth and happiness, this is something you want to bring with you where ever you go.

  • Sized for wear over base/mid layers
  • Weight: 370 g (Medium Regular)
  • Pack size: 10x18 cm (Medium Regular)
  • Breathable and quick drying
  • Elastic waist and cuffs
  • Full length side zippers
  • Diamond gusset crotch
  • Articulated knees
  • Materials:
    • Fabric: 100% polyamide
    • Insulation: Climashield Apex 67 g/m2

* = Medium Regular

The L3 is primarily designed for wear as an insulating layer under your field trousers but also functions when worn over your regular clothing as a quick means for extra warmth when pausing for a break in cold weather. Thus the simple design, very low profile and no pockets at all. The construction and insulating properties are comparable to a modern lightweight summer sleeping bag.

The full length side zippers offer fast and easy layering when you need it, without removing boots or even your field trousers. Just pull down your trousers to your ankles, put the L3 Loft Trousers (with size zippers completely opened) in place and zip both legs shut from top to bottom. Now just pull up your field trousers and you´re done!

L3 - Insulation layer

The third layer of the Särmä TST clothing system, designed to be worn over a base layer of merino wool and under a field uniform or other outer shell. L3 garments come in two styles, unlined wind wear and lofty thermal wear with Climashield insulation. Lightweight, quick drying and highly breathable fabrics guarantee effective moisture management and great packability.

Take a look at our Särmä TST Clothing System!

Pro-Tip: The L3 is also a clever choice if you want to extend the temperature range of a lightweight sleeping bag, just use it as a thermal pyjama! The materials and construction really serve this

High quality materials

Shell and liner: Calendered 60D, 58 g/m2 100 % polyamide ripstop. Very lightweight, quick drying and really strong for such a lightweight material.

Calendered? Calendering is a process in which a fabric is hot pressed to seal it´s surface. The effect is basically the same when you use a lighter to burn the end of a cut piece of cord. The heat basically irons the tiny fibres flat thus making the fabric very windproof and somewhat moisture resistant. Calendering is a good alternative to PU-coating when you need added protection from wind and moisture but still want to keep the fabric uncoated for the best possible breathability.

Climashield Apex 67 g/m2 insulation. This is some of the best insulation there is, fantastic weight-to-insulation ratio and great performance even in wet conditions. Apex is a continuous fiber filament, this means it does not need any attaching stitching like you would find on common polyester or down loft garments. By eliminating these stitches we also eliminate possible cold spots, further adding to the insulating properties of the garment.

Sizing

The measurements given in the size menu are the users recommended height and waist circumference in centimetres. Sized to be worn over base and mid layers, under outer camouflage or shell layers. If you want to use the L3 Loft Trousers as an over layer on top of your fieldwear we recommend upsizing one step.

For starters we decided to offer these simply in one length size, Regular, due to the nature of the garment it doesn´t really matter too much if the legs are a bit too long or short. In our fittings we found out that Regular was long enough for up to 190 cm tall users, although this left the ankles bare. Regular also fit 165 tall users, in this case the pant legs bunched up a bit at the ankle, but this did not interfere with leg movement or comfort.

Hyvältä vaikuttaa! Mutta vyötäröä ei pystykään kiristämään, joten jos haluat käyttää ilman henkseleitä päälihousuina älä ota liian isoja.

Lisää jahka saan housut oikeasti testattua. Testikäytön jälkeen voin vain todeta, hyvä ovat, miltei täydelliset.

Kuvasarja, jossa housut saa puettua päälihousujen alle kenkiä riisumatta on puhdasta neroutta - kiitos jälleen kerran Varustelekalle!

On kyllä hassua, että selän puolen kuminauhakujaan ei ole edes jätetty aukkoa, josta kuminauhaa voisi kiristää.

Sepaluksen sulku on loistava, yksi iso nappi kiinni ja tarra hoitaa loput.

Suhteellisen huolellisen silmäilyn, sovittamisen ja reilun tunnin testilenkin perusteella varovainen 5 tähteä.


Hintaansa nähden housuissa on muutamia todella hyviä yksityiskohtia:
- lahkeissa suojatut vetoketjut: eivät todennäköisesti raasta esim. vuorittomien kuorihousujen sisäpintaa yhtä armottomasti kuin suojaamattomat (joita käytetään aika monissa kalliimmissa housuissa!)
- hengittävät: testilenkillä kosteus siirtyi selvästi lämpöhousujen ulkopintaan, mutta silti sisäpuoli oli täysin kuiva (Käytössä olleet kuorikerroksen housut eivät vain tiedetysti päästäneet kosteutta kovin tehokkaasti ulkopuolelle, joten lämpöhousujen ulkopinta oli silminnähden ja käsiin tuntuvasti märkä, mutta sisäpuoli kuiva!)
- Nostolenkit vyötäröllä: nämä voi jättää päällihousujen vyötärönauhan yli näkyville, jolloin on helppo nykiä välihousuja tarvittaessa ylemmäksi; kai näihin voi jonkinmoiset henkselitkin askarrella kiinni halutessaan

Kokohuomioita: mitoitus on tosiaan ns. "sopiva". L-koko menee itselleni mainiosti, vyötärön ympäryksen ollessa n. 96cm tällä hetkellä, ja pituutta 185cm (jalat suhteessa hitusen keskimääräistä pidemmät). Lahkeet jäävät itselläni aavistuksen nilkan yläpuolelle, mikä ei haittaa, sillä yleensä näiden käytön yhteydessä kengän vartta on kuitenkin reilusti. Samalla toki polven rypistykset tulevat oikealle korkeudelle. Äkkiä arvioiden saattaisi L-koko mennä vielä 100cm vyötärön ympäryksellä, riippuen muusta ruumiin rakenteesta, tai jos tykkää tunkea kaikki paidanhelmat välihousujen kauluksen sisään. Vyötärön kuminauha on jämptiä, sillai luotettavalla tavalla, muttei kiristävästi.

XL-koko olisi soveltunut omilla mitoillani sitten ensisijaisesti päällimmäisenä käytettäväksi taukohousuina, joita voisi tarpeen vaatiessa käyttää välihousuna, jotakuinkin välttävästi.

Jos pakkauspussia tarvitsee housuille, niin esim DD Waterproof Stuff Sacks toimii hyvin. L-koko pakkautuisi vielä pienemmäksikin.
