Velcro name tags made according to Finnish military specs, not the cheap printed type issued to conscripts but real nice embroidered ones.

Särmä TST M05 RES camo jacket
Our own, improved version of the Finnish military issue M05 summer woodland jacket. Our enhanced version features two zippered sleeve pockets and better adjustable cuffs. Looks just like the issue jacket at first glance, but functions a little bit better, the devil truly is in the details! Officially M05 RES approved!
Särmä TST M05 fur hat
The official cold weather fur hat of the Finnish defence forces, with our own little improvements. The fur hat has very, very long traditions in the Finnish army, it was actually after experiences in the Winter War of 1939 against us Finns that the Soviets adopted their now legendary Ushanka fur hats. In Finland the fur hat has been in military service as long as we´ve been independent and is still going strong. A very versatile and configureable model, this can be worn in many ways depending on the situation at hand. Finnish MILSPEC quality!

Grub's Snowline 8.5 winter boot
Seriously proper winter boots by the British company Grub's. Someone did something wrong and ended up offering these for us for a price we couldn't refuse - for the customer, this means well over 100 EUR boots for way less! These are the kind you definitely want when the temperatures start reaching down to zero and below. As a side note, these have been seen in use by the Finnish Border Guards, to give you some perspective of the quality.
Särmä heavy neck tube, merino wool, snow camo
A thick, warm merino wool knit tube scarf, long enough to cover neck and head and can be folded in half for extra warmth and insulation. The camouflage is strangly similar to the Finnish army M05 camo: we took the pattern, enlarged and simplified it a bit to better work in wool knitwear, the end result is pretty darn neat!
A "civilianized" black variant of our own, improved version of the Finnish military issue M05 cold weather parka. Our enhanced version features two large, flat sleeve pockets velcro-adjustable cuffs, velcro for patches and best of all: far superior materials. MILSPEC, just a bit better!

Finnish MILSPEC materials
Climashield Apex is a fan-frickin-tastic insulation, this modern hollowfiber is also used by the US military and Crye in their cold weather gear. Our M05 cold weather garments are filled with 100 g/m2 Climashield Apex, this gives great insulation and warmth whilst still keeping weight to a minimum. The "real" issue CW clothing is made with outdated 70¨s polyester stuffing, Climashield is approx. a hundred times better than that old junk.
The outer fabric, Microtech 145, is strong, very tightly woven polyester. Extremely wind resistant and also offers some protection from light rain. This same material is used on Finnish air force cold weather clothing!
These are sized according to the official Finnish military system, the first digit of the three numbers stands for user height (6: 160-170 cm, 7: 170-180 cm, 8 180-190 cm, 9 190-200 cm) and the following two are the width (chest) according to the European system. In case of jackets this is the wearers optimal chest circumference divided by two (size 48 = 96 cm).
These are generously sized to accommodate warm base and mid layer clothing. The M05 cold weather parka was designed for wear over warm mid layers and even the standard camo uniform and fighting gear. The idea is that you can throw this over you when taking a five minute break from fighting, this requires it to be generously loose fitting. If you want a "better" fit we recommend downsizing one step.
Using the velcro cuffs and waist and hem drawstring the jacket can easily be adjusted for a custom fit.
