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 these are much like a pair of modern tactical trousers. Combining this functionality with high-quality natural wool fabrics makes these a rather unique garment!

Wool? As in old timey clothes?

Yes, but high-quality wool, not at all scratchy and nasty. Wool is really a top-quality 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

  • Regular fit
  • Elastic adjustable waist
  • Zipper fly with button
  • 50 mm belt loops
  • Diamond gusset crotch
  • Articulated knees
  • Reinforced seat, knees, shins and ankles
  • Hook-and-loop cuffs
  • Four pockets:
    • Two slash side pockets
    • Two pleated cargo 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 trousers is the design. The overall construction is aimed at minimizing the bulk of the wool fabric used, therefore certain areas such as the crotch gussed, ankles and waist are made with double layers of CO/PES instead of any wool. By limiting excess wool-on-wool details, the result is a little bit more lightweight and sleek. The low profile reinforcements and intricately pleated cargo pockets help keep the overall profile low without sacrificing any functionality.

Sizing and fit

Sized according to recommended user height and waist circumference. The waist is adjustable with a strong elastic webbing piece with hook-and-loop fasteners on the sides. This webbing piece can also be completely removed if not needed.

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!

Voin suositella, housut on juuri niin kuin on luvattu tekstissä. Vahvat ja kuitenkin kevyesti taipuvat. Säätöjä ja taskuja tarpeeksi. Long Large mallissa pituuskin juuri riitti (olen 198 cm) ja luulen, että korjausompelija saisi vielä lahjetta rukattua niin, että 4 cm tulisi lisää pituutta. Mukava yllätys oli, että vyötärössä on takana vyön paksuinen joustonauha piilossa. Sen päissä on tarrakiristys, jolla voi säätää vyötärön sopivaksi. Minusta tuo ulkoilukäytössä riittää niin, että vyötä ei tarvita.

These are obviously designed by people who know the outdoors and the need for trousers that work with you and are robust and comfortable.

Cut nice and high at the back good crotch to facilitate bending and squatting great touch the rear adjuster for perfect waist fit. pockets are spot on. Hell the whole construction is up there better than any other outdoor trousers and best of all made of wool.

Delivery to the UK was hassle free.

So good I ordered a second pair.

How can Varusteleka produce what no one else seems to be able to do Keep it up guys

Love it . Have the jacket and pants with Green, not M05. I have medium regular and it is just large enough to fit above other gear. Hunting, hiking, etc... perfect for fall. Thanks guys for make these!

Makes this Canadian happy!

My impressions after two weeks of use. I’ve been looking for this kind of wool trousers for many years. I’ve tried a few surplus models but these are by far the best. The overall impression is that of high quality and good workmanship. They are less bulky and more user friendly than any other wool trousers I’ve used. But of there are some things to consider if you are planning to buy these pants.



Sizing:

When you look at the pictures on the website you get the impression that the fit is fairly slim. In reality the model must have sized down considerably because the fit is rather baggy. That is good news if you have a fat ass or legs like Arnold Swarzenegger. For me (normally build) they could have been a bit tighter. For this kind of cold weather pants I often want to use overtrousers (waterproof, snow or thermal trousers). This would’ve been easier if they were less baggy.

The inseam on my “regular” pant is 79 cm. This is good. If you follow the recommended user length the risk of the trousers being to short is very low.



Possible weak spots:

These trouser aren’t cheap and they are intended for heavy use so you expect them to be durable. The trousers legs are both wide and long so you could expect some wear on the inside of the legs. I would appreciate an even more robust design with cordurareinforcement on the inside and end of the legs. I think the current design is a bit flimsy.



I would also appreciate boot hooks. .



In conclusion, the best wool trousers I’ve tried. They are a bit baggy but the design is otherwise brilliant and extremely comfortable. I hope they will last because I will use them a lot.

Good and original product ! I've the jacket in green and the pant in m05 camo and it keep me warm just perfectly but be carreful, i ordered a Large regular cause i've a 92cm waist size but i found him to large for the leg so i took then a Medium regular and it's fit perfectly so if like me you have 92cm waist size you can buy a medium regular but not if you are above, cause 1/2cm more and it's too tighten.

Erittäin hyvät housut. sarka toimii loistavasti +- 0 keleissä, vahvikkeet oikeissa paikoissa ja loistavat taskut.
Leikkaus on liki täydellinen, ei hierrä eikä kierrä, pääsee kyykkyyn ja ylös ilman ongelmia eikä tästä huolimattakaan nämä ole kuitenkaan mitkään pussihousut.
Puoli tähteä nipistin pois, koska mielestäni näin korkealla vyötäröllä varustetut housut saisi varustaa olkaimien kiinnitys mahdollisuudella, joko napit tai lenkit.

I just got back from a 5 day survival trek wearing this pants. It rained, hailed, and snowed during that time, and not once did my legs feel cold or wet, even when I didn't wear any thermals underneath. Yes, a bit baggy, but that there alone helped keep the body heat in and I was comfy at night. Highly recommended.

After a few month of use I want to say some things. These pants are great. Comfortable, sturdy and practical. The sizing is perfect and while some people 'complain' that the pants are rather baggy, they are the perfect compromise between too snug and too baggy. Other than the jacket, which is a snug fit (what makes much more sense there), you have to have some room for movement while wearing pants. The, in my case M05-fabric, works as intended as a robust addition to a very comfortable and not scratchy wool-body. All parts are sewn together nicely and precise.
These pants are not made for very hot conditions, but even on a hike in humid conditions way beyond the 30-degree-mark (Celsius), they have been comfortable to wear.
