Suunto A-30 compass
A decent compass is one of the most important items one can own, especially if the great outdoors hold any charm for you. Compared to the basic A-10 the A-30 features some additional advanced features.
Light My Fire FireSteel 2.0 Army
Probably the best magnesium firesteel there is! This is the army model with an extra thick magnesium rod, that means more sparks and a longer service life. Comes with a very well made scratcher which really gives good, strong spark showers and doubles up as an emergency whistle.
Särmä TST Map pouch
A proper good cargo pocket map pouch, designed to fit A4 size maps and papers, smaller notebooks, pens and pencils etc. small trinkets you may want to carry with you in the field. The model is based on an older Finnish army special forces issue map pouch with a load of little improvements and overall much simplified construction.
Suunto Clipper L/B NH
A mini compass does not need to be just a neat looking accessory with zero function, the Suunto Clipper is an actually functional clip-on mini compass complete with an actual bezel, a detail often not found in competing models. Attaches pretty much anywhere and weighs next to nothing, the Clipper goes with you anywhere making it a perfect back up or EDC piece.
Särmä TST Waterproof Shooting diary
Finnish firearms legislation makes it pretty much a must for most gun owners to keep a log of their hobby. This is naturally a good thing to do anyhow just to keep track of how many shots you´ve fired through your firearms, especially if barrel wear is an issue.
Särmä TST Organizer pocket
A pocket organizer or organizer pocket is basically an admin pouch but instead of attaching it to a vest or similar platform you carry it in your pocket or pack. An easy way to organize a multitude of little trinkets. This thing fits notepads, compasses, multitools, flashlights, pens etc. and keeps them neatly organized and easily available.
Särmä TST RK Open Top magazine pouch
Finnish RK plastic magazines are bulkier than most other AK type mags, and much fatter than any STANAGs, this means trouble when looking for suitable open-top mag pouches. Those worries are now in the past, this pouch is designed to fit a single RK plastic mag, modelled after the thoroughly proven conventional open-top design with a few tweaks.
Särmä TST Admin-1 pouch
Everybody needs their own little "field office", this admin pouch is a tried and tested common design. Fits all your little notebooks etc. and has generous loop space for name, rank and silly "Cock Sucking Crusader" patches on the front.
Särmä TST L6 Hardshell jacket
Our hardshell jacket follows the universal standard design for light tactical hardshells. Basic pocket layout, integrated hood and ventilation zippers, it´s all that you need in a hardshell. Our starting point for the design was the Finnish army issue hardshell jacket, but in the end only a few tiny details of the original survived.
The ability to take notes is something you should never be without, this waterproof and strong notebook has been designed especially for military use. A notebook is a notebook, but with high quality materials and some clever functional details we´ve turned this into something a bit more!
- Waterproof Modestone stone paper
- 30 sheets, 60 pages
- 7 x 7 mm squares
- Name space on the front cover
- 1:25k and 1:50k map rulers inside the cover
Available in two different sizes. The larger one is comparable to A6 paper size, the smaller to A7. Choose which one suits you better depending on how you´re going to carry it and how much or little writing surface you need.
Modestone´s limestone based paper is pretty neat. In comparison to Rite-in-the-rain this stuff is stronger and absolutely 100% waterproof, you can have a piece submerged for months without it taking any damage! It is also extremely resistant to wrinkling. A really neat feature is the fact that on top of the usual pens and pencils you can also use metal such as keys or bullets to write! In all honesty the only downside to Modestone paper is it´s slight softness which takes some getting used to when writing with hard tipped pencils.
The inside of the front cover features printed map scale readers for 1:25k and 1:50k maps. This is especially enjoyable for Finnish military users. The sad and weird fact is that Finnish military issue compasses feature 1:20k scales for map reading, yet the issued maps are all 1:25k or 1:50k. This silly little compatibility issue has caused one or two headaches over the years. But, now you can just flip out your notebook and check the distance with no need for calculations!

I placed a sheet in a bowl of water for a hour, then wiped it off very well. It was the same . You could go diving with this.
