Our hardshell jacket follows the universal standard design for light tactical hardshells. Basic pocket layout, integrated hood and ventilation zippers, it´s all that you need in a hardshell. Our starting point for the design was the Finnish army issue hardshell jacket, but in the end only a few tiny details of the original survived.

A few thoughts on ventilation: Anybody who has worn a hardshell knows that no matter what retailers say it is never as breathable as "normal" clothing, that is the truth. But, the important thing is ventilation! Do it and do it right for maximum comfort.
Start off by opening the armpit zips, these will really help cool you down a bit. If that is not enough loosen the waist drawcord and sleeve cuffs to let air run through the jacket. Need more ventilation? Well just open up the front zipper from the top or bottom or both and you are as ventilated as you can be! And when your activity level drops just zip up and tighten everything down again.
L6 - Waterproof Shell
The sixth layer of the Särmä TST Clothing System is designed for layering over your fieldwear for temporary rain protection, or for wear instead of it as as waterproof uniform. Generous ventilation zippers minimize the thermal load of the layer, allowing the wearer added comfort. Camouflage prints and visible accessories are 100% NIR compliant.
Take a sneak peek at our upcoming Särmä TST Clothing System!
Simple sizing system, the larger these grow the longer they are too. The measurements in the size menu are recommended user height and chest circumference in centimeters. These are designed to be roomy around the chest and waist to acommodate thermal clothing or even plate carriers. If you are 100% sure you absolutely will not ever want to wear nothing thicker than a wool sweater underneath you may downsize one step, but be warned, also the shoulders and neck will be a bit tighter.
Take into account that for maximum ventilation and heat management the jacket needs to be loose fitting, if you downsize you will lose some ventilation. Not much, but some, just so you know.
Finnish MILSPEC materials
The main fabric is Iceberg by Concordia (one of Europes leading military fabric manufacturers), a three layer laminate (polyester+membrane+polyester) with PTFE membrane. This is basically the same technology as Gore-Tex, but without the extra costs of a cool brand name.
Care and maintenance
It is absolutely super important to take good care of your hardshell clothing. The whole point in a three layer membrane fabric is that the top layer has to stay dry in order for the membrane to transport moisture. When the top layer gets dirty or wet the membrane will no longer breathe and if you then add pressure water will eventually come through the fabric.
So, after use always wipe off any dirt with a simple wet towel. When you notice that the fabric is starting to lose it´s water repellency use a DWR spray or to breathe some new life into it. Washing with special detergents designed for hardshell clothing is also an option. Remember: nothing lasts forever, but everything lasts longer if you take good care of it!

Leikkaukset ovat erinomaiset. Ei ahdista, ei kiristä. Hupun leukasuoja nousee aika korkealle, mutta ei sitä tartte tappiin vetääkään aina. Muotoiltava huppulippa on tosi jees. Pusakkamaisuus ei ehkä ole tyylikästä, mutta perkeleen käytännöllistä. Uskoisin, että pesee hunters elementit ynnä muut kuus nolla, vaikkei _täysin_ äänetön olekaan. Jos mulla kesti Haltin drymax takki 2002-2017, niin tää varmaan palvelee vielä 2040-luvulla. Ei siinä vuotta kohden kauheita kustannuksia tule.
