When bulging cargo pockets and camo patterns aren't your thing but you want shorts with lots of pockets for your stuff, here's your summertime tactical solution!

  • Elastic material and crotch gusset
  • Hidden pockets with easy access for smartphones etc.
  • High durability
  • Fabric weight 390 g/m2 / 11.5 oz
Model update 2022: all new shorts have a reduced inseam length of 23 cm / 9". The old models have the inseam indicated next to the waist size, and the new versions are phased in size by size.
The Blue fabric is also in the process of being updated. The retiring fabric (94/4/2 Cotton/Polyester/Elastane) is indicated with its fabric weight of 12 ounces. If the size isn't accompanied by any special note, it's with the shorter inseam and latest material.

What's unique about these shorts is the unassuming looks, but there's more than meets the eye. Extra pockets are hidden in plain sight to keep things available for grabs. When stashed behind the side seams, your smartphone won't dig into your thighs or slip under your butt when you sit.

Made in Estonia (EU) by Masi company.

Size info

Many people prefer the Tactical Shorts in a smaller size compared to ordinary jeans. Part of this is because of the stretchy material but also because of the roomy cut: as with the Tactical Jeans, the waistbands are two inches larger than the nominal waist size to let it ride lower than the navel.

Tactical Shorts of a smaller-than-usual size will not be glam rock tight so if you want a closer fit, give the sizing a moment of thought.

Below is a table of garment measurements:

Nominal Size Waistband Thigh
Metric Imperial Metric Imperial
W28" 77 cm 30.3" 60.5 cm 23.8"
W30" 82 cm 32.3" 63.5 cm 25.0"
W32" 87 cm 34.3" 66.5 cm 26.2"
W34" 92 cm 36.2" 69.5 cm 27.4"
W36" 97 cm 38.2" 72.5 cm 28.5"
W38" 102 cm 40.2" 75.5 cm 29.7"
W40" 107 cm 42.1" 78.5 cm 30.9"
W42" 112 cm 44.1" 81.5 cm 32.1"
W44" 117 cm 46.1" 84.5 cm 33.3"
W46" 122 cm 48.0" 87.5 cm 34.5"
W48" 127 cm 50.0" 90.5 cm 35.6"

Cut and features

The starting point was obviously the Särmä TST Tactical Jeans with the legs cut to 23 cm / 9".

The fit is best described as "plain" or "regular". We didn't incorporate any bagginess for pocket space, because the material stretch handles it. The belt loops are big enough for a 50 mm / 2" belt but work fine with regular 40 mm / 1.6" belts as well. Button fly.

  • Mid rise waist
  • Stretchy, non-restricting material
  • 50 mm / 2" belt loops
  • Button fly
  • Crotch gusset
  • Ten useful pockets:
    • Two ordinary side pockets
    • Two (pistol mag size) smaller pockets inside each side pocket
    • Two ordinary back pockets
    • Two (assault rifle mag size) hidden back pockets

Ten pockets

In addition to the usual front and rear pockets, the front pockets have two flat "coin pockets" per side. Even the smaller ones are big enough for a pistol magazine, folding knife or multi-tool.

In the rear, you'll find two slash pockets behind the side seams. A yoke conceals the mouth, so it's "not there". The pockets are large enough for a smartphone or tourniquet, but by coincidence also fit something you can use to feed an Evil Black Gun.

Material and care

In our trials, we have used the Tactical Jeans for all kinds of rough business, and even after wearing and washing they retain a good look. The current fabric for both colors is 57.5% cotton, 31% recycled polyester, 10% recycled cotton, and 1.5% elastane. Fabric weight: 390 g/m2 / 11.5 oz. These features apply to the Tactical Shorts as well and a common wear point at the knees is eliminated.

Machine wash at 40° Celsius / 104° F. The color bleeds so handle the whites and coloreds separately. May crock before the first wash, so don't sit on your grandma's white leather couch before that.

The color is Denim Blue or Stay Black. When stretched, the fabric reveals light-grey fibers within the fabric, giving a lighter appearance.

I don‘t need all the pockets, but that movement range feels so superior to normal jeans. These are amazing. Can‘t wait to try then out on a bike, they already feel great on the couch.

Pari vuotta kesät talvet menty töissä, harrastuksissa ja vapaa-ajalla yksissä ja samoissa mustissa farkuissa, muka testimielessä mutta oikeasti ylivertaisten ominaisuuksien vuoksi. Kesällä tuli hiki. Parhaat shortsit parhaiden farkkujen kaveriksi. Näitä on odotettu.

Uijjui! Kaikista vanhoista farkkushortseistani on ajansaatossa repeilleet taskujen sisäpuolet riekaleiksi, mutta nyt Varusteleka sai vihdoin varastoon uuden satsin tiktaktisia TST-farkkushortseja! Aivan huikea tuote, ja etenkin venyvä stretch-kangas on kesähelteillä miellyttävä tilanteessa kuin tilanteessa. Nyt, kun vielä valmistatte näitä muutamassa muussa värissä, esim. vaaleamman siniset "kivipestyt" ja vaalean ruskeat "khakin" väriset olisivat coolit. Tai laittakaa asiakaskysely eri väritoiveista, ja sit tuloksista huolimatta valmistatte ainakin noi kaksi väritoivettani.

Kävin päivittämässä Särmä kansan farkkusortsit näihin kun neljän kesän jälkeen alkoi näkymään kulutuksen merkkejä ja olivat tuossa ajassa jääneet myös pieniksi. Muutaman päivän käytön jälkeen ovat osoittautuneet loisto-ostokseksi.

Super functional well thought out design. Just enough stretch and crotch gusset mean unrestricted movement. Tons of belt loops means the many accessible pockets can be loaded up without the pants sagging at the waist. So good i bought both black and blue.

It's not bad.
The short version of the tactical jeans with all pockets.
But i will have to buy another pair.
They tend to get smelly as they now are the only pants i want to wear.
And now they are out of stock and i only have this one unit.
Now waiting for winter when i might wear the long ones.
Should have bought two.

I can see my knees from up here! Normally don't enjoy the feeling of denim on my skin, but these tacti jeans are the exception. Love them and their longer cousins

Sain shortsi eilen, nukuin ne jalassa koska nyt on ekaa kertaa istuvat, mukavat ja toimivat keähousut! Välitasku perstaskun vieressä ansaitsisi keksijälleen Nobelin rauhanpalkinnon, luuri sinne ja ei ole koskaan tiellä, voi istua, työmieshymytellä ja ryömiä trampoliinin alle ja puhelin vain hyrisee tyytyväisyyttään, samoin ukko joka näissä housuissa ähkii menemään.
