The FR (Fire Retardant) version of the L4 Combat shirt. Made from the exact same materials used in the Finnish Defence Forces issue M11 combat shirt - most notably Tencate Defender-M!
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.
Take a look at our Särmä TST Clothing System!
The measurements in brackets are the recommended user height and chest circumference in centimeters. The fit is pretty normal, there is enough room and stretch to wear a T-shirt or mid weight long sleeve shirt underneath for added warmth in cold weather.
The materials are what makes any FR garment what it is. These combat shirts are made from the same materials used in the Finnish Defence Forces M11 combat shirt. The availability of these very much "special" materials is dependant on the acquisitions of the Finnish Defence Forces - when they order their M11 combat shirts then these materials are available, when they don't order anything then they aren't. This means that we can absolutely not guarantee that these shirts will be regularly restocked, if you need one get it now!
Tencate Defender M (the "next generation" version - DM9190, stronger and better than the older versions) is one of the best FR camouflage fabrics available on the worldwide market today. Made from Lenzing FR viscose, para-aramid, polyamide and finished off with anti-static fibres. See the Defender M data sheet for more info and certificates.
Cat households beware! This fabric is insect finished with permetrhin insect repellant which is toxic to cats. Don't leave your FR combat shirt lying about for your feline friends to nest in, and shower properly after wearing it before cuddling with your furbabies!
The torso piece is made from a blend of modacrylic and viscose, finished off with Outlast temperature regulating "Thermocules" for added comfort. This is a very comfortable, stretchy material which won't feel just as hot as you'd expect, thanks to it's hi-tec thermoregulating capabilities.
The elbows are reinforced with 500D Cordura for added protection. Although this stuff is not fire retardant like the other fabrics there naturally is a complete sleeve of Defender M underneath, so this won't kill you. Besides, these reinforcements will keep that Defender M fabric intact underneath, even through extremely hard use.
