The Särmä TST L6 Hardshell jacket and trousers were designed as an alternative to the Finnish standard issue rudimentary non-breathable rainwear. Waterproof and breathable with an adjustable hood, four functional pockets and proper ventilation zippers.
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!
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.
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!
