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 side leg zippers from the top, these will really help cool you down a bit. If that is not enough open the fly zipper to let the air flow through the thighs and crotch. And when your activity level drops just zip up 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!


The measurements in brackets are the recommended user's height and waist circumference. The cut is oversized for easy layering over regular camouflage trousers. If you want these for wear over high loft insulated winter trousers, we recommend oversizing one step. The waist can easily be adjusted for a custom fit using the elastic band.


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!

Sewn in Estonia

These are sewn in Estonia, by an experienced factory that has a long history of producing clothing for military, law enforcement and emergency services.

Ei nämä oikein sadehousuina toimi, eikä kyllä kuivan kelin housuinakaan. Saumat ainakin päästää veden läpi, ilmeisesti myös vetoketjut. Kunnon sateen jälkeen kun otin housut pois, näytti kuin olisi tullut kuset housuun. Aluhousut oli aivan märät. Vyötärö on niin korkea, ettei näitä oikein ilman henkseleitä voi käyttää. Housut alkaa tippumaan puolitankoon liikkuessa. Pitkät kylkivetoketjut helpottaavat pukemista. Reisitaskut on hyvät. Ovat jääneet valitettavan vähälle käytölle huonojen kokemusten takia. Samaan rahaan saa paljon parempia housuja.

This is the best rain-protection I've ever had. This material keeps you dry in the worst scenarios and protects you against everything out there. I was concerned about the price of these pants (and the jacket) at first, since I expected it to be similar to the German Bundeswehr Nasseschutz. This stuff plays a completely different league and is worth the money. It doesn't matter what happens out there, you'll stay dry and warm. Not lightweight, but highest quality and durability.

Nämä ovat pelastaneet monta kesäistä kaatosademönkkärisekoilu... Seikkailua.
Talvellakin pitkää matkaa ajaessa loiventaa viiman kylmyyttä huomattavasti ja lisää ajomukavuutta.
Metsästystä ja PV hippasia ajatellen todella kova mukavuustekijä, mutta ainoana miinuksena kahisee kävellessä(läskit reidet).
