A very lightweight and packable windshell layer jacket. Keeps freezing winds and light rain at bay while allowing moisture to freely evaporate. Primarily designed for layering between base layers and camouflage wear, but can also be used as a stand-alone jacket in light use.

- Weight: 215 g (Medium Regular)
- Pack size: 10x7 cm (Medium Regular)
- Breathable and quick drying
- Elastic cuffs and adjustable hood and hem

The wind jacket is an easy choice to bring along anywhere, anytime. Packs small enough to fit in your trousers cargo pocket and is versatile enough to serve a purpose in just about any weather. As a mid layer it offers added insulation without hindering moisture from lower layers to evaporate.
The L3 Wind Jacket can also be used as a stand-alone outer shell jacket but please note that the lightweight fabric is not designed to withstand direct, heavy abrasion. Open flames, crawling over rough terrain and rucksack hip belts are some common enemies of this type of clothing.
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.

Fabric: 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.
Sized to fit over warm mid layer clothing, even a fleece. If you never ever want to wear anything but thin, tight undershirts under your wind jacket you can downsize one step from the recommended measurements.
Pictured model is 178 cm tall with a chest of 100 cm, the jacket is size Medium Regular.

Särmä TST L3 Wind Jacket is true EDC wonder during the milder seasons. It's extremely lightweight and packs into a small space. Quite often the wind is the reason for thermal loss even though the weather might be fairly warm. This little jacket will ensure that you feel comfortable and warm, even though it would be a very windy weather. I have used Särmä TST L3 Wind jacket with Särmä merino wool hoodie and this combination has worked well in fairly cold, windy and rainy conditions. Under the field jacket, Särmä TST L3 Wind jacket works well as mid-layer during the milder seasons via blocking the wind without increasing the thermal load too much. I have used Särmä TST L3 Wind jacket in an urban environment, in the woods, at sea, and in rock festivals and it has performed well in every occasion.
