We've played around with many wool-based outdoor and military clothes over the years, the Woolshell suit is a completely re-thought design based on experiences and ideas gathered from numerous projects. Functionally this is much like a modern tactical softshell jacket with its minimalistic and sleek appearance. Combining this functionality with high-quality natural wool fabrics makes this a rather unique garment!

Wool? As in old timey clothes?

Yes, but high quality wool, not at all scratchy and nasty. Proper wool is really a top material:

  • Breathes, doesn't feel like plastic
  • Won't soil easily, but cleans up nicely
  • Is naturally fire retardant
  • Forms on its wearer
  • Relatively warm even if it gets moist, but won't really soak in water.

Good wool frieze is expensive and has some heft to it, that's why it's not nowadays used so much. It's still more than a viable application for temperate and cold weather clothing articles.

Modern, functional design

  • Snug fit
  • Adjustable hood
  • Front zipper w/ interior storm flap
  • Underarm ventilation zippers
  • Elastic draw cord adjustable hem
  • Articulated elbows
  • Elbow reinforcements w/ pad pockets
  • Hook-and-loop cuffs
  • Loop for sleeve patches
  • Four pockets:
    • Two zippered chest pockets
    • Two zippered upper arm pockets
  • Materials:
    • Wool frieze: 70/20/10% wool/polyamide/Cashmere
    • Reinforcements: 50/50% cotton/polyester
    • Pocket lining: 100% polyester

The original idea for the Woolshell design began as a simple fantasy - wouldn't it be great to have a wool suit which could comfortably be worn under gear and shell garments without causing too much excess bulk? Basically this would be a garment which could alternate between shell and mid layer functions, with the fantastic properties of wool being the main attraction. This idea matured over the years and eventually ended up as an update for our legacy wool jackets and pants, tying these together with the current Särmä TST clothing system designs.

Besides the wool and it's naturally fantastic properties the other big thing about the Woolshell jacket is the design. The snug fit minimizes excess material which means a decrease in weight and less uncomfortable bunching up under gear and shell clothing. The fit and low-profile pocket design results in a sleek garment, especially considering the main material! And when the going get's tough, that's when the underarm ventilation zippers and breathable materials kick in.

Sizing and fit

Sized according to recommended user height and chest circumference. The fit is designed to be quite snug for wear under shell garments and load bearing equipment, not super roomy like many old school wool jackets. If you want to load up on very thick mid layers you can pick one size larger than our measurements would recommend.

Materials

High-quality European wool frieze

70% wool, 20% polyamide and 10% Cashmere wool, 600 g/m2. The polyamide content is added to the mix to reinforce the otherwise not-so-wear-resistant natural wool, thus extending the life of the finished garment. Wool is an incredible material for outdoors clothing, keeps you warm, dry and breathes better than anything. We're proud to say that this wool frieze is the best we could get our hands on. If you're going to make wool clothing, you better do it properly!

Reinforcements

50% polyester, 50% cotton, ripstop reinforced.

Wash and care

As these are made of wool, they don't need to be washed very often - the best way to keep wool clothing clean is to simply brush off any dirt and if necessary wipe it with a wet cloth. If you must, machine wash in 30-40 degrees Celsius with wool cycle. Hang dry. When drying, stretch the garment a bit to open up the fibres again. Use of wool care products recommended!

Tämä oli pakko ostaa heti. Tarpeeksi pitkät hihat ja helma, Long mallissa (olen 198 cm). Jämäkkä materiaali ja mukava pitää. Tosin alla on oltava paita, joka ei jätä ihoa paljaaksi, sillä muuten voi kutittaa, ainakin uudenkarheana. Armeija-ajoilta olen vähän kaivannut sarkatakkia kylmiä varten. Huppu on toimiva ja toimii myös pelkkänä kaulan ja niskan lämmittimenä. Maastokuvion ja ruskean yhdistelmä vähän ensi näkemältä oudoksutti mutta nyt se tuntuu ihan hyvältä, mukavan erilaiselta. Kainaloissa vetoketjut joista koko kainalo aukeaa tuuletettavaksi, luultavasti ihan kätevä hikoilun vähentäjä, jos menee käymään sisällä tai istuu lämpimään autoon.

Loistava takki, istuvuus, käyttömukavuus ja lämmitys oikein mainio.

Ainoa negatiivinen juttu, että +5 kelillä päällystäkkina käytettynä repun kanssa 15km marssin jälkeen takin selkämys nukkaantui hieman alaselän kohdalta. Ei siis se kestävin kangas päälimmäisenä kerroksena. Näinhän taki kuvauksessakin lukee. Hyvä kuitenkin tiedostaa.

Woolshell-combo on kyllä erinomainen valinta eräilyyn ja muutenkin ulkoiluun. Sarka on lämmin ja samalla mukavan hengittävää. Takin istuvuus on mahtava ja housujen korkea vyötärö on todella upea ominaisuus. Näistä kokotaulukoista vain en ymmärrä mitään. Aina, kun tilaan niiden mukaan sopivan mallin, saan laavun. Onneksi sain taas helposti pienemmät koot vaihdossa.

Erinomainen vaate. Ostin ihan pelkästään siviilikäyttöön talven päällystakiksi, toimii mainiosti. Ja kokotaulukon mukaan valittu yhden koon suurempi takki vetää alleen hienosti paksummankin hupparin.

Great Jacket with Excellent construction. I am 6'2 and 225lbs very fit, I ended up in a Large long and it fits great, room enough underneath for layers but not too baggy. If you arent chubby order a size down from the chart based on chest size. I should be in a XL long but, it was cut for a chunkier man.

Glad i bough this instead of some bullshit expensive synthetic shell made in china. Much better quality.
