Särmä TST Recon Smock

Price 183.99 - 211.99 USD 211.99 USD excluding VAT

This is a very unconventional smock. The fabric is not windproof, because we want you to be able to move a lot in this thing without succumbing to a heat stroke. Ventilation zippers and breathable materials guarantee comfort even during hot summer days. We did retain the massive number of pockets for organizing all your gear efficiently.

This is a very unconventional smock. The fabric is not windproof, because we want you to be able to move a lot in this thing without succumbing to a heat stroke. Ventilation zippers and breathable materials guarantee comfort even during hot summer days. We did retain the massive number of pockets for organizing all your gear efficiently.

The generous cut accommodates warm mid-layers for cold weather. If you need a heavier and windproof garment, we recommend Särmä Windproof Smock.

  • Generous fit for wear over warm mid layers
  • Two-way front zipper w/ exterior storm flap
  • Helmet compatible adjustable hood
  • Armpit ventilation zippers
  • Articulated elbows
  • Reinforced elbows with pad pockets
  • Hook-and-loop cuffs
  • Loop for name, rank and sleeve patches
  • Elastic waist adjustment webbing
  • Elastic drawcord adjustable hem
  • Twelve pockets:
    • Two sleeve pockets with buttons and hook-and-loop
    • Two buttoned chest pockets
    • Two zippered chest pockets
    • Two buttoned front hem pockets
    • Two zippered front hem pockets
    • Large buttoned horizontal back hem pocket w/ internal dividers
    • One zippered horizontal rear hem pocket
  • Materials:
    • Main fabric: 50/50 cotton/polyester
    • Mesh lining: 100% polyester
    • Reinforcements: 500D Cordura

Wax your smock! The main fabric is pretty "normal" stuff, not windproof nor waterproof or anything but very breathable (this is not a "Windproof Smock"!). For extra protection we recommend treating your smock with fabric wax, a very effective trick!

The generous size offers room to wear insulating layers underneath the smock, such as the Särmä TST L3 loft jacket, or even low profile body armor. This makes the Recon Smock functional in a variety of climates and circumstances.

Pockets are that other big "Smock Thing", and we've got loads of those, large and small, enough to carry gear and food to keep you going 24h.

The upper arm pockets close with a hook-and-loop flap and button: the button is quiet but slow, the hook-and-loop quick and noisy. If you want to use just the button - simply cover either side of the hook-and-loop for a quiet closure! Four large pockets with button flaps on the chest and hem offer lots of storage space. Four internal zippered pockets built into the mesh lining offer ventilation and organizing of smaller items, the two pockets on the hem double up as hand warmers.

The rear hem has a large button flap pocket which can be divided into three compartments using hook-and-loop dividers, this pocket is big enough for thermal clothing or a tarp. On the inside of the rear hem is a pocket built into the mesh lining, this pocket is accessed via two vertical zippers located on either side of the external pocket. This zippered pocket is suitable for large, flat items such as big maps.


The measurements in brackets are the recommended user height and chest circumference. The fit is roomy to accommodate insulating layers underneath. This means you don´t have to switch jackets at the first sign of winter, just add some extra insulation.


The main fabric is ripstop-reinforced 50% cotton and 50% polyester. This is the same fabric that our combat shirts are made of. The elbow reinforcements are 500D Cordura. The mesh lining is 100% polyester. All visible fabrics are NIR-compliant.

The tags on the jackets falsely state the material composition as 50/50 cotton/polyamide, it's actually 50/50 cotton/polyester as stated above.

Erinomainen takki! Nimensä mukaan kamaa mahtui, poistin aiemman arvostelutekstin, kun ei ole enää ajankohtainen. Olkavarsitaskuihin mahtuu otsalamppu Oikealle, Surge+kotelo täynnä roinaa vasemmalle(Surge siis erillään, kotelossa esim BitKit , vedenpuhdistustabletteja ja tulentekovehkeet). Jerven Exclusive menee juuri ja juuri vöineen alataskuun, käytännössä kuitenkin takatasku on parempi. Jos on reppu selässä saa suojaviitan reppua riisumatta päälleen. Viitan suojasn voi myös kääriä lisäpäähineen ja hanskat taukoja varten, pysyvät siten kuivina. Huppu toimii hyvin lippalakin kanssa, ja kaulus on sopivasti suojaava, estää jopa lumen tippumisen niskaan. Ja silti hupun saa vedettyä pään yli ilman vetoketjun avaamista tai säätöjen muuttamista. Olen nyt tottunut alaspäin sulkeutuviin taskuvetskareihin, kaipa niissä on joku idea. Kankaan vuoksi annoin vain neljä tähteä tälle kaikkien aikojen retkitakille, toivoin kenttätakin kangasta - muuttaisin jos voisin. Takki on osoittautunut parhaaksi ikinä.
Nyt sain tähden lisättyä. Vetoketjut ovat muuten todella laadukkaat. Kyllä tämä on paikkansa nyt lunastanut, useampia päiväretkiä olen tehnyt, ja takki on osoittautunut korvaamattoman hyväksi.
10.3.2019 päivitys. Takki paranee käyttö käytöltä. Hiihtoretkillä olen käyttänyt, ja on kyllä helppo homma lastata tarpeet mukaan ilman reppua. Tämä takki on Lekalta kyllä kulttuuriteko kunnon retkitakkien sarjassa. Iso kiitos tästä!
14.12.2019. Nyt on varmaan vuoden verran käytetty. Parannusehdotuksia olisi sellaisia, että takin voisi tehdä samasta hieman tukevammasta kankaasta kuin on tehty Lekan taisteluhousut. Nykyinen kangas on hieman liian ryhdintöntä. Toisena asiana olisi, että kaulus voisi olla kuitenkin hieman paremmin suojaava, silloin kun huppu ei ole käytössä. ja kolmantena sanoisin, että taskujen nappien lisäksi voisi alunperin olla myös tarrat mukana, samaan tapaan kuin Lekan taisteluhousuissa - mutta tarrat on helppo lisätä itsekin.

Love it. Smocks aren't for everyone but this one has all the features I wanted. Had to widen the button holes a hair or two to make them easier to open/close but little else.

Great piece of gear. Love all the pockets. Fabric is quite thin, would be nice to use something more sturdy to make it more robust.
