Särmä TST Finnish M05 rank insignia
Proper embroidered Finnish M05 rank insignia, made by us to fill a gap in the FDF kit issue. These are far more practical than the standard issue metal ones of WW2 vintage! Available in three colour variants: full colour, subdued and snow.
Särmä merino wool hoodie, black
Finally a proper hoodie - in this case the price doesn't come from a big name, but rather from the material, which is thickish Merino wool, which is probably the best fabric ever. Oh, and we haven't forgotten to design the cut properly too. Whether you like to move on foot or two wheels, for the love of God buy this!
Särmä Assault Pack
Good and affordable urban rucksack of our own design - partially, at least. Just enough different compartments, compact dimensions but expands to about 20 litres (even more with extra pouches). If you have a lot of stuff that has to be accessed all the time, this is the thing for you.
Särmä viscose boxers, black
Proper good boxer shorts for an affordable price - these are more like the Common Man version of the Merino wool model we also sell. Being made of viscose, these have sort of poor man's versions of many of the good characteristics of wool. Hey, still beats cotton!
Särmä DEUS VULT morale patch
Ave Maria, Deus Vult. There can never be too much cheap jokes and morale patches. These days with Daesh & co. spreading terror all over the place it´s good to remind ourselves of proper old fashioned Western and Christian values, so say a few Hail Marys just Deus Vult! With our full colour and subdued Deus Vult patches you can go spread the Good Word in both every day dress wear and field gear. Velcro attachment, dimensions 5 x 7 cm.
Särmä Common Jeans, black
Our staff is usually fully clothed in Varusteleka, but there was one constant exception: they wear jeans, and we didn't have them. We fixed this fault by making Good Ol' Proper Jeans. As the blue model had a good welcome, here's a pair in classic black and with button fly instead of a zipper!
Särmä Delete My Browser History morale patch
That feeling when you're dead and forgot to clear your browser history. Be prepared for the worst with this morale patch!
Särmä No Step On Snek morale patch
When enemies of liberty don't get you, communicate with them in simpler terms.
Särmä Jarru pudding morale patch
A common army legend in the Finnish Defence Forces is called "Jarru", which is Finnish for brake. Rumour has it that any dessert served contains a dose of hormones to reduce your sex drive, to make things easier.
We already made a superior hoodie out of Merino wool, but that stuff is expensive. For the plebs is available this cheaper option which retains the superb cut and features and while not as fancy as the woollen one, still works like that to a degree - at less than half the price! If you just need a damn well designed hoodie for casual use, this is the ticket.
There are "B quality" hoodies listed in the size selection. The fabric of these B quality hoodies is a tad more airy and floppy feeling than on the regular stuff we sell, but it still has the same material contents. The perceived floppiness might be a good thing too depending on personal preferences, but it's not what we wanted. So, here's a one-off deal! It's still a great hoodie!
Form and cut
Slim fit, with long hem. Quality zipper on the front, with a flap on the backside to prevent it from making contact with the skin if you're not wearing anything under this. The collar is so high when zipped up that you really don't need a scarf of neck tube or whatever. The hood has drawcord tightening and is suitably roomy, but not overly so - it works as an underlayer when worn with a helmet during cold weather. Thumbholes on the sleeve cuffs, of course. Reinforced against wear, and can be rolled up if not needed.
Sort of five pockets, all are roomy. Two hand warmer pockets (volume about one wine bottle each) and a kangaroo pocket on the back, which can be accessed from either side, good place for storing gloves, hats and other accessories. On the left sleeve you'll find a zippered pocket, roomy enough for any smart phone (Iphone 6 Plus, Oneplus One tai Samsung Note 2/3/4 etc.). Hell, you could probably fit a standard set of groceries in the pockets. The pocket lining is cotton fabric.
As is customary these days, the sleeve pocket is covered with velcro. This means you can slap on a patch of your choice (smart people put a reflector tab on it!).
330 g/m2 blend: 42% cotton, 27% viscose, 26% polyester, 5% elasthane. The percentage of elasthane makes the fabric - you guessed it - just a tad elastic, allowing for free movement.
This blend still retains some of wool's nice features, like transferring moisture away from the skin, not being super nasty when wet and drying surprisingly quickly. All in all it's quite suitable for common use and still better than a full cotton fabric usually found on hoodies. Moreover, the inside face is terry style, i.e. very comfy.
Wash in 40 degrees Celsius. Hang dry.
Sizes in the dropdown box according to recommended user's height and chest circumference in centimetres. However the material is very forgiving - this should fit taller people too. If unsure, you can always pick a size larger for longer sleeves, at the cost of form fit of course. If you are a girl, we recommend taking the chest measurement below the boobs. Normal size women usually are well off with size X-Small.
Just in case we have provided the actual measurements of the garments for each size, see the chart below. Please bear in mind that the fabric still is very forgiving despite the given measurements!
|Size||Chest circumference||Sleeve length||Back length (from the base of the hood)||Front length (from the base of the hood)|

Made in Lithuania.
I don't really care about hoodies for some strange personal reasons. Once upon a time our company sent a delegation to Germany and I was a part of it. Dress code demanded the fabled Merino hoodie for our people, so naturally I tried to save a buck for the company and secretly picked the "B quality" viscose hoodie.
Now I'll set my cold hatred for these things aside for the moment and look at it as it is. Well, it's a very practical piece of clothing. You got a load of good, closed pockets and the cut is nice. Didn't use the hood though, it makes you look like a junkie. Viscose is actually completely adequate material for basic bumming around business and you tend to watch after it less than the expensive Merino wool too. If you like hoodies, I would recommend this, it's way better than the regular department store offernigs and works nicely as an extra layer too if the weather gets chilly, keep it in your pack or something.
And the "B quality" is really a pretty strong word here, because in reality these are just fine. Save ten bucks, get one of these!
Omaan mieleen huppu on hieman liian pieni, tosin Nazgûl-tyylinen ratkaisu ei kaikkia viehätä
Pari kehuvaa sanaa kerroin perheelle tästä ja nyt meillä kaikilla on tämmöset.
Ja koska aina pitää olla vähän negatiivinen niin sanotaan että nauhat ovat ehkä vähän liian pitkät omaan makuun. Vähän solmin piuhoja uudelleen jolla tuli jopa ehkä vähän siistimmän näkönenkin!
