The L4 Field Pants were designed for pure functionality. Smart materials, relaxed fit and clever details make them what a pair of field pants should be, comfortable and utilitarian. These are a great alternative for the Finnish military issue M05 pants, which suffer from a load of compromises due to the fact that they were designed to double up as parade wear.
We have not sacrificed simple reliability for functionality, the L4 Field Trousers are wear resistant, easily cared for and when need be also easily repaired. The materials are simple but functional. all buttons are Canadian style slotted buttons and wear prone details such as hook-and-loop fasteners are designed to be easily replaced if needed. The L4 Field Uniform stands for simple functionality, the stuff that you learn to value when you´re "out there" for extended periods.
The relaxed fit and generously articulated knees offer unrestricted leg movement. The wide 40 mm elastic waist adjustment band (which by the way is completely removable) is wider and thus more comfortable than the commonly used 25 mm width. The relaxed fit also gives you room for warm underwear and midlayers, an important detail especially for us up here in the North.
The relaxed fit and generously articulated knees offer unrestricted leg movement. The wide 1.6" elastic waist adjustment band (which by the way is completely removable) is wider and thus more comfortable than the commonly used 1" width. The relaxed fit also gives you room for warm underwear and midlayers, an important detail especially for us up here in the North.
Besides the common slash side pockets the L4 Field Trousers also have two button flap back pockets and two large button flap cargo pockets (with British windproof style "fold down over itself" mouths). All buttons used are slotted "Canadian style" buttons, and pocket buttons have further been covered to prevent snagging.
The 25mm/1" wide belt loops feature hang loops for tie-downs and accessories such as the ITW GrimLoc. The suspender attachment points on each side are designed for use with any M1950 style suspenders. The elastic waist adjustment band can be easily removed, this comes in handy when wearing a belt or when simply washing the trousers - nothing kills elastics like washing machines. The hook-and-loop cuffs are designed for over-boot wear, a simple, quick and secure system.
The fourth layer of our clothing system could be regarded as "standard camouflage dress". L4 clothing offers protection against the outside world through camouflage and abrasion resistance. These garments are designed for minimal thermal load for effective layering. Camouflage prints and visible accessories are 100% NIR compliant.

The measurements in brackets are the recommended user waist circumference and height. These are very slightly oversized to accommodate warm mid layer clothing. The waist can easily be adjusted for a custom fit using the elastic band.
By removing the elastic waist band completely you can gain a few extra centimeters for the max. waist circumference. For example: by doing this our CEO with a waist of 80 cm got the Small Regular size pants (recommended waist 78 cm) to fit like a glove. Note that downsizing like this will reduce chances of wearing warm mid layers underneath the Field Trousers.
By removing the elastic waist band completely you can gain a few extra centimeters for the max. waist circumference. For example: by doing this our CEO with a waist of 32" got the Small Regular size pants (recommended waist 31") to fit like a glove. Note that downsizing like this will reduce chances of wearing warm mid layers underneath the Field Trousers.
50% cotton, 50% polyamide ripstop, weight 210 g/m2. Lightweight, strong, quick drying and breathable. Compared to Cooltex 3 (the fabric commonly used by the Finnish military) this fabric is roughly 30% lighter, which roughly means it retains 30% less moisture thus making it dry up much faster. The only downside is the higher cost, but the functionality is worth it.
The knees are reinforced with 500D Foxdura (100% polyamide), relatively lightweight but very wear resistant.
70% polyester, 30% cotton, weight 210 g/m2. This is the same fabric that is used in Finnish military M05 cold weather parkas and trousers.
The M05 winter camo variant has reinforcements made from the same fabric as the rest of the garment. Unfortunately no M05 winter camo pattern Foxdura/Cordura is yet available.
If you wish to ensure that the NIR compliant properties of the camouflage print are not diminished we recommend being very careful when using common detergents. All-natural stuff without any optic brighteners should be safe.
