The L4 Field Trousers were designed for pure functionality. Smart materials, relaxed fit and clever details make the L4 Field Trousers 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

  • High waist, roomy cut.
  • Zipper fly with button.
  • 50 mm (2") belt loops with loops on the bottom (suitable for GrimLocs)
  • Elastic waist adjustment band. Easily removable.
  • Loops for US M1950 style suspenders.
  • Diamond gusset crotch.
  • Generously articulated knees.
  • Reinforced knees with pad pockets (we recommend CPE pad inserts).
  • Hook-and-loop cuffs.
  • Six pockets:
    • Two side slash pockets.
    • Two slotted button back pockets.
    • Two slotted button cargo pockets.
    • "Idiot cord" tie down points inside the back and cargo pockets.
  • Materials:
    • M05 woodland camo: 50/50 CO/PA. Reinforcements 500D Foxdura.
    • M05 winter camo: 70/30 PES/CO, including reinforcements.
    • All materials are NIR compliant.

Functionality and easy maintenance

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.

Freedom of movement and relaxed fit

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.

Six pockets

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.

Other details

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.

L4 - Field Wear

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.

Sizing

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.

Materials

M05 woodland camo

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.

M05 winter camo

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.

NIR compliant materials

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.

Todella hyvin istuvat ja mukavan tuntuiset pöksyt.
Kriittiset mittani ovat 187cm 85kg ja valitsin koon Medium Long. Leikkaus on sopivan väljä (ei kuitenkaan mitkään gorkat) ja istuvuus kaiken kaikkiaan hyvä. Toki täytyy opetella pitämään korkeavyötäröisiä housuja jos on tottunut "normaalin korkuisiin". Kuitenkaan edes vyötä tai henkseleitä ei näiden kanssa välttämättä tarvitse - vyötärön velcro riittää vallan mainiosta.
Parasta housuissa on se, että niiden kanssa pystyy oikeasti menemään polvelle tai sykähtelemään vähän nopeamminkin ilman että housut repeävät persuuksista vaikka reisitaskut olisivatkin täynnä kaikkea turhaa kuten karttoja yms.
Ripstop kangas iso plussa, samoin lahkeen velcro kiristykset - pysyvät nätisti Haix P3:sten päällä. Perstaskuille on näe mitään tarvetta, mutta eivät ne mitään haittaakkaan - omaa tyhmyyttä niihin on tavaraa tunkea.

Mitat 181/78, medium regular just hyvä. Ehkä alkavalla alapömpöllä kuminauha saisi olla vähän löysempi. Kangas todella miellyttävää, lahkeiden kiristys toimii ja CPEn polvarien kanssa todella miellyttävää korpoilla. Hakkaa normi M05 kirkkaasti.

Alustava arvio, koska eihän näin uutta kamaa ole ehtinyt vielä kestävyyden suhteen kunnolla testata. Ehkä joskus vuoden päästä sitten.

Ensiksi ne huonot puolet, joita en ole löytänyt monia.
- Persvahvikkeet puuttuvat. Hommahan toimii niin, että housut hajoavat joko polvista tai persauksista. Näistä housuista löytyy aika vakuuttavat polvivahvikkeet, mutta jostain syystä, oudosti erityisesti tämän hintaluokan vaatteessa, persvahvikkeet puuttuvat. Saas nähdä mitä tuo tarkoittaa pidemmässä käytössä kestävyyden kannalta, koska kangaskin on suht kevyttä/ohutta. Jos tästä tuotteesta on joskus tulossa jonkinlaista Mark II versiota, laittakaa nyt ihmeessä persvahvikkeet messiin.
- Takataskujen napit saattavat tietyissä tilanteissa ahdistaa riittävän prinsessamaista käyttäjää, mutta silloin kannattaa kyllä melkein jäädä kotiin juomaan punaviiniä tai jotain.

Hyviä puolia löytyykin sitten rankemmin.
+ Liikkumisen vapaus. Ainahan vaatteet ovat vähän tiellä, mutta tässä tapauksessa todella vähän. Niin omituiseen asentoon en saanut itseäni väännettyä että nämä housut olisivat pahemmin pistäneet vastaan. Tästä saattaa innostua liikaakin, ja ottaa tavaksi syöksyä polvilleen turhan vauhdikkaasti, jolloin kyllä harmittaa jos unohti laittaa suojainsertit paikoilleen...
+ Jumalainen kokosysteemi. Omituisen kokoisena henkilönä kaikki housut ovat minulle yleensä jostain väärän kokoisia, mutta nämä toimivat. Vyötärökuminauha on sitä luokkaa, että kun sen avaa täysin, housuihin mahtuu melkein kaksi meikäläistä, mutta kun sen kiristää kunnolla, housut pysyvät ylhäällä ilman vyötä vaikka heittelisi voltteja. Kun vaan osaa valita oikean koon, niin alle mahtuu niin paljon välikerrastoa kuin voi haaveilla. Näissä on tosiaan ihan oikeasti korkea vyötärö mikä on kiva kun tuulee tai pyryttää, mutta kannattaa muistaa kokoa valitessa, että vatsa mahtuu varmasti mukaan.
+ Tuotekuvauksessa sanotaan että kangas hengittää hyvin ja kuivuu nopeasti. Eivät vitsailleet.

Mitat 180/79, medium regular 750 hyvä, lahkeet ehkä inan liian pitkät. Toisaalta voi kääntää lahkeen velcrokiristykset sisäpuolelle särmäreillä niin näitä ei juuri erota jakotavarasta. Pelkäsin että CPE:n insertit jää liian matalalle mutta käytännössä ongelmaa ei ollut.
Neljän päivän KoSu-patsastelussa lämpötilan pyöriessä nollan kummallakin puolen, tuulen yltyessä paikon 10 m/s lukemiin ja sateenkin ropistessa ihan kunnolla nämä housut oli just hyvät. Pitävät tuulta sen verran että alle riittää pitkät merinokalsarit ja kuivuvat nopeasti kastuttuaan.
Ainoa pienenpieni miinus on että reisitaskujen kanadanappeja on vaikeampi avata ja sulkea kuin tarranauhaa (duh) erilaisia hanskoja, kaulahuiveja, pipoja karttoja tms. välpätessä. Eivät napinlävet tiukat ole mutta vaatii vähän sorminäppäryyttä.

Kiitos Leka, jälleen huippu kampe!

+Kangas ohuempaa kuin perus m/05:ssa.
+Hyvä leikkaus, istuvuus ja liikkumisen vapaus.
+Fiksut taskut ja hyvät säädöt vyötäröllä ja lahkeissa, sekä takissa hihoissa.

Takissa voisi olla hartiossa laskokset ja housuissa reisitaskujen kiristysnauhat kuten jenkkien ACU-kamppeissa (joka muuten on ehkä maailman paras tappelupuku).
Muuten 5/5!!!

Omat mitat 183cm/95kg, 754 Large Regular just hyvä PV:n poolon ja pitkien kalsareiden kans.
Hartioihin toivoisi ihan hiukan lisää liikkumatilaa...

Erittäin mielekäs leikkaus - pystyy liikkumaan ketterästi metsässä, jalka nousee, pystyy korpoilemaan, kyykkimään ym. Medium Regular toimii hyvin mulle. Oon 180cm pitkä ja 78 kg, farkut 32"/32".

I've had a pair for 6 months and used them quite heavy in the Scandinavian forests for hunting, camping, and other outdoor activities . I've placed kneepads in the knee pockets and they remain there and do other interference with walking. The pants are comfortable and hard wearing. They seem very resistant to stains and light splashes of water. I have soaked them through in heavy rain and canoeing but they dry quickly. They have become my favorite wilderness pants. The only negative point is that they are only available in camo. To Varusteleke......Please make then in Olive green and brown too!

Parhaat retkihousut ikinä. Napit taskuissa vaikuttavat hitailta, mutta varmasn niiden kanssa oppii elämään. Jännä nähdä, Crye Presicion 3G Combat pantsit ehkä tulevat jouluksi, tai sitten perun tilauksen, voivatko ne olla yhtään näitä paremmat!? Metsänvihreä maastokuvio, kangas on kuningas, olisipa Recon Smockissakin sama.

I have used these world-wide for approx. a year and a half thus far. They fit well, adjust in the waist and are extremely durable. I have used them for hunting and contract work extensively. The fit, finish and over construction is excellent and well done. I'm very impressed with the product and it has proven itself repeatedly. I like these and this fabric more than my many other high end products for my same applications. They outperform my other types of these uniforms; for durability and resistance to tearing and fraying. I have even swam in these during several maritime classes. They dry relatively fast and performed excellent. These are far better than any of the available products in 05 or any other pattern for that matter. Superior to many I have tested and or used over the years. The only negative I can say is they are not designed for extreme hot weather. The cloth is too heavy for that application, but still they breath relatively well and far better than 100% cotton or wool.

Great pants. All the other reviews are spot on. But there are two very important points:

1) These pants are LOUD compared to poly/cotton ones! I wouldn't dare take these hunting with me... the "swish" of the thighs as you walk would surely scare off any potential game. Maybe if you're hunting stationary from a blind/stand it's okay, but in those situations you could be fine in your underwear anyway.

2) Definitely look at the siznig guide. If you aren't planning on wearing thermal stuff under it (like the l3 loft gear) definitely consider sizing down a notch. It will give a more "street fit" and you will also likely experience less noise from the fabric rubbing.

I have both colors and love them for their comfortable fit and durability. I did have one issue where the crotch seam failed but the customer service was exemplary and i had them replaced without any fuss. This was likely just a one off production flaw and the other one has shown no signs of weakness.

I would have liked the green camo to be a shade darker tho, mine at least looks a bit bleached. Still the quality is worth every cent.

As with everything särma that i have encountered the sizing is on the generous side. I had to take them a good size smaller then reccomended to avoid having the crotch too low and limiting mobility.

Due to the magnificent cut of these trousers i would say that oversized does not equal mobility in this case and getting your size right will benefit in every way unlike some other brands of field trousers that end up too tight in all the wrong places, iam looking at you brittain.

Näissä on nyt pujoteltu ja kontattu kotona ja ulkomailla, teltassa ja tasaisella joitain viikkoja ja täytyy sanoa että on hyvät housut. Hieman paremmin varustellulle keskivartalolleni housut istuvat hyvin, tosin kuminauhavelcrosysteemin poistin odottamaan muuta käyttöä. Kanada-nappisiin reisitaskuihin tottuu todella nopeasti, polvisuojapaikat toimivat hiton hyvin ja ovat jopa polven kohdalla. Lahkeiden suiden velcrokiristys on sata kertaa jakovarustetta särmempi eikä tee sitä jäätävää "reserviläiskanttausta" saappaan varteen. Materiaali on kevyttä ja hengittävää, eikä vihollinen enää pääse jäljille seuraamalla pakaroiden välistä valuvaa vaahtovanaa. Kangas on tosin hieman kahisevaa, mutta koska se kestää melkein mitä vaan - menköön. Leikkaus on hyvä ja siitä koituva liikkumisen vapauden tunne jakokaman jälkeen on huumaavaa. 5/5.

Kokemus 2 vuoden käytön jälkeen ja muutamat parannusehdotukset:

Miinukset:
-Takataskut ovat mielestäni aika turhat
-Polvivahvikkeissa vois olla pienet reijät/läpiviennit Arc'teryx polvisuojan remmeja varten (Modasin ite sellaiset ja toimivat kuin junan vessa, eikä häiritsisi vaikka ei käyttäisikään kyseisiä polvisuojia)
-Velcrokiristys polvitaipeisiin jotta saisi polvisuojainsertit tiukasti kiinni
-Narukiristys joilla voisi säätää polvisuojainserttejen korkeutta
-Reistaskut olisivat voineet olla laskostetut
-Etureisitaskut olisivat tähän hintaan olleet hyvä lisä

Plussat:
+Kangas kuivuu nopeasti kosteissakin olosuhteissa
+Hyvä kokosysteemi
+Tarrakiristykset lahkeissa asetti uuden standardin kenttähousuille (imo)
+Hyvännäköiset
+Vyötärökiristys on hyvä

I have had both the M05 woodland and M05 winter versions of these for about a year now, and they have easily become my favourite pair of trousers. Both are well-designed and well-fitted garments with a quality camo print (no improperly-offset colours of the Russian stuff for instance) on good materials that are sewn well. There are a high number of stitches to per inch to this garment and everything seems pretty durable. I work in an environment that is merciless to both clothes and body sometimes, but I have had no problem with any of these garments. Get the knee inserts if you plan to kneel at all in these pants - its the best 10$ you'll ever spend. The design having the capability for them is smart and it really does help with kneeling on concrete and other unforgiving hard surfaces. The attachment loops were just the right size for grim-locs or your other contrivance of choice, as well. The pockets areplaced in such a way you can easily have several pouches on your belt - as I usually do - while still retaining easy access to the pockets - they're cut deep and long slash pockets which ensures this, as opposed to the shallower slash pockets often favoured by most jeans.

Both pairs of camo are something I'm wearing one of the two of, pretty much daily, and while there's some minor signs of wear, there's nothing that is noteworthy, and they've held up well. Given experience with the two, I definitely prefer the Viking fabric used for the winter set. In particular, I find it holds up better against abrasion, for instance, the forest camo pants now sport a nice little pair of lines for anyone looking at my groin to see exactly where the zipper is, because the material has abrased against that fabric with the zipper. But that's about the only complaint I have, and it's a very minor one.

Oh, and just to comment on the other reviews: the swishing is definitely a thing with either pair of pants; the viking a little less so but both of them it's quite audible. It doesn't bother me in the slightest but if you have aspirations of being a ninja, get the Jorma hunter's version. Just know you're giving up the kneepads and a fair few of the combat accoutrements to get there.

If Varusteleka happens to read this: I'd go almost instantly for a plain black or green version of these pants so I get a few less looks on the bus, that's for sure. (Though I personally have no problem with the camo!)
