Ventilation - the key to comfort

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 level of the Särmä TST Clothing System is designed for layering over your fieldwear for temporary rain protection, or for wear instead of it as a 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 look at our Särmä TST Clothing System!

Sizing

The measurements in brackets are the recommended user height and chest circumference. The cut is slightly oversized to accommodate warm mid layer clothing.

Materials

Foxshell (79 % polyester, 3 % elastane, 18 % polyurethane) is a 3-layer laminate hardshell fabric originally designed for the Finnish Border Guard. Most recently Foxshell was chosen for the production of the latest generation of Finnish Army motorcyclist hardshell jackets and pants.

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 its water repellency, use a DWR spray 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!

Hemmetin hyvä takki. Ostin etupäässä metsästyskäyttöön, enkä ole pettynyt. Toki, lämpimämmillä kuivilla keleillä kannattaa käyttää jotain hengittävämpää, mutta kurjalla säällä takki on todella hyvä. Haasteellisin ilmasto on kuuma kostea. Mutta siihen ei kai ole mitään hyvää vaatetta.
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.

Hinta oli aikamoinen, mutta etsiessäni hyvää ja kestävää sadetakkia metsärämpimistä varten tämä takki oli täydellinen. Hyvännäköinenkin takki on!
Itse käytän takkia sateisina päivinä joko metsä- tai reservihommissa. Hihojen tuuletusaukot ovat hyvin tehokkaita ja estävät liiallisen hikoilun (en suosittele takkia pitkimmille marssille ellei ole sateista, kalvotakit eivät kuitenkaan niin paljon hengitä).
Sadekestävyys esim. intin takkeihin (ja kaikkiin muihinkiin myös) verrattuna on mahtava. Vesi suorastaan valuu pois takista, eikä jätä sellaista kosteaa tuntoa sadesään jälkeen. Tässä uudessakin leikkauksessa leukasuoja tulee aika korkealle, mutta huppu on tilavempi kuin edellisessä versiossa. Jos Varustelekalta tulisi identtinen siviiliversio (esim. musta/vihreä/keltainen) ostaisin sellaisen heti. Paras omistamani sadetakki!

Veretseisauttava vaateparsi. Ollut 3 vuotta sellaisessa kyydissä, missä muut vastaavat ovat pudonneet rinnalta. Kun tavara osuu tuulettimeen niin tämä takki pelastaa. Erityisesti mieltä lämmittää kuorihousujen tulo myyntiin. Vaikka tuotteen hinta olisi korkeahko, sillä ei ole mitään merkitystä siinä paikassa kun olosuhteet eivät ole miellyttäviä. On kova, kiitos.
