Our take on the classic British Windproof Smock with improvements and civilian-friendly colours. If you're tired of sweating in 'tex clothing but want some protection from showers, you'd do well to give this a try.

It should be common knowledge by now that a more versatile outdoor jacket than the Windproof Smock doesn't exist. It breathes better than any plastic shell jackets with membrane, is more resistant to wear and still offers a significant level of protection from rain. It can be worn over a base layer during mobile activity in cool weather, or packed with insulating mid-layers for keeping warm during breaks.

Features

General features

  • Generous cut for ease of movement and adding mid-layers
  • Long hem to cover your seat
  • YKK zipper front closure with storm flap
  • All buttons are large enough to be used with gloves on
  • Buttons are Canada style, attached with webbing to prevent failure
  • Generous hood with drawcord tightening and size adjustment
  • Hood can be rolled and secured into a collar with cord and button
  • Cuff adjustment tab with velcro
  • DWR coated for better water resistance
  • Softshell fabric added to the handwarmer pockets
  • PU coating on the inside for further windproofing

Pockets:

  • Measurements apply to Medium size. Pockets grow with jacket size
  • Four pockets on the front with large buttons and a folding mouth
  • Chest pockets: 16 x 20 x 2.5 cm, bulge up to a combined 3 litres
  • Chest pockets: 6.3" x 7.9" x 1.0", bulge up to a combined 100 ounces
  • Lower pockets: 19 x 21 x 2.5 cm, bulge up to a combined 4 litres
  • Lower pockets: 7.5" x 8.3" x 1.0", bulge up to a combined 140 ounces
  • Fleece & softshell lined hand warmer pockets
  • Hidden pockets with zipper closure behind the chest pockets, bulge out to a combined 6 litres!
  • Hidden pockets with zipper closure behind the chest pockets, bulge out to a combined 200 ounces!
  • Flat sleeve pockets on both sleeves

Material and care

65/35% polycotton. Wash in 40 degrees Celsius. DWR coated for better water resistance, PU coated for windproofing. The whole package breathes still very well.

Using wax or a spray-on treatment helps improve water repellency for wet weather.

Colour selection

One of the reasons Särmä Windproof Smock was developed was a need for a single-colour version of the British classic. Our basic selection includes black and green, other colours may come and go depending on season and demand. The best way to indicate demand for the yellow colour (one batch of which has been already produced) is to click on the envelope and request a restock notification.

Size info

We have listed first the easy size, then the user's recommended measurements: user height/chest circumference. These are generously cut to accommodate mid-layers. If you fall between two sizes, decide if you want a more closely fitting jacket or more allowance for clothes worn underneath.

Below are the actual circumference and sleeve length from the shoulder seam. The hem and waist are the same sizes as the chest.

Ensimmäisen päivän kokemuksella hyvä ostos. Huomattavasti keskimääräistä nykypäivän laatua paremmin kokoon laitettu, hyvälaatuinen mukavan pehmeä ja jämäkkä kangas. Tarrapintoja raksin jo osan pois. Katsotaan mitä tulevaisuuden käyttö tuo tullessaan, mutta positiivinen yllätys oli laadultaan, ja erityisesti hinta miellyttää. En pysty näkemään eroa laadussa tämän ja Fjällrävenin takkieni välillä, hinta vain on niissä aivan toinen.

Kohta vuoden olen käyttänyt Mk I takkia. Hyvä ulkoiluun, alle mahtuu lämmintä niin tämän kanssa voi kulkea melkein ympäri vuoden. Bonusta siitä ettei ole muovikelmuja välissä hiostamassa.

Kehuista huolimatta Itävallan raskaampi Anzug 03 takki on kuitenkin vielä pykälän parempi. Siinä on parempi helman leikkaus ja huomattavasti parempi kaulus. Niiden lisäksi huppu pois tästä takista niin oltaisiin täydellisyyden äärellä.

Toisen syksyn kokemuksia päivityksenä:

-Takki ei ole enää niin lämmin ja tuulta pitävä kuin vuosi sitten, pesty ei ole kertaakaan.

-Etuvetoketju on ruvennut temppuilemaan. Puoliskot täytyy asetella huolella yhteen että takin saa kiinni. Kaksisuuntaisten vetoketjunen "ominaisuus"

Den här jackan är strålande! Jag vill ha fickor på mina jackor och byxor, jag vill ha fack på mina väskor. Här får jag precis vad jag vill ha - tillsammans med dragkedjor under armarna. Köp! / This jacket is fantastic! I prefer to have a lot of pockets on my jacket and on my trousers. I want to have the same on my bag (courtesy: Varusteleka). You may ventilate during your arms with this jacket. It's brilliant! If you were to ask me for a final recommendation: "Go for it! Buy!" :) I'm very happy, as always, with Varusteleka's merchandise.

I own both an original British Army one and the first version of this jacket. This jacket is lighter and softer but more comfortable to wear than the original Army one and is my "go to" jacket for 3 season wear when walking and travelling. A good coat of water repellent spray keeps light rain rolling off and the ventilation is superb.

Näppärä takki ja aikuisten koot. Tässä Large Regular vastaa siviilitakin XL:ää tai jotain XL+:aa. Alle mahtuisi kaksikin kerrosta fleecetakkeja sen villapaidan päälle, kun muissa takeissa Large on sopiva.

Kaulus on mukavan korkea ja tarpeeksi tilava, jotta alle mahtuvat sujuvasti neule, fleece ja kauluri. Huppu kauluksena ei ajatuksena hivele; toivottavasti ei lerpahda takaa käytössä.

Taskut ovat isot ja niitä on tarpeeksi kummallakin puolella takkia. Erityisplussaa lämmittelytaskuista, jotka ovat erillään tavarataskuista, kerrankin on tilaa myös käsille. Napit ja vetoketjut pitävät sulultaan ja käyttöotteeltaan. Miksei aina vois olla näin hyvin! Napinlävet tosin näyttävät lähinnä vihollisen pistimen tekemiltä, ne pitänee ainakin siistiä ja ehkä ompeluttaa vahvistukset.

Kangas on yllättävän kevyttä, muistuttaa kesäpalveluskamoja, mutta tuntuu pärjäävän tuulisessa Helsingissä. Kylmempään oloon ja kovempaan tuuleen ottaisin jonkun muun takin - toisaalta fleece tai tekninen alla voisi selvitä noistakin kunnialla. Kevyt kangas oletettavasti kuivuu nopeammin ja on taatusti ketterämpi käytellä kuin toppakuori tai kuori ilman toppaa.

Säätöjä on sopivasti. Niskan ripustuslenkki piti solmia lyhyemmäksi, ettei takki laahaa kaapissa kenkien päällä.

Alun perusteella vaikuttaa hyvältä takilta. Suosittelen ottamaan suosiolla "oman koon" tai pienemmän, kerrastovara on kyllä otettu huomioon jo kaavaa piirrettäessä.

Tämä vai Brandit M65? Tämä (+ fleece). M65 on toimiva, mutta jää jälkeen vetoketjussa, taskuissa ja leikkauksessa, eikä M65:n irtovuorta saa edestä kiinni kuin tekemällä siihen itse vetskarin tai lenkit (vetoketju päästää pakkasviimaa läpi, vaikka nappiläppä olisi kiinni).

Nyt tuli kyllä tehtyä elämäni paras takkiostos. Tällaista olen etsinyt vuosikymmenet. Riittävän pitkä, huppu ja hyvät taskut - mm. nuo käsienlämmitelytaskut. Isot napit hakkavat tarrat mennen tullen. Tuulenpitävyys ei ole tämän takin paras ominaisuus - nimestä huolimatta. Jälleen kerran Lekan koot yllättivät positiivisesti. 2X-Large-Long oli riittävän iso 192 cm 125 kg miehelle, massa on tosin jakaantunut tasaisesti, ei pelkästään vatsan seutuun. Ihmettelen vain, mitä kokoja "normaalit" ihmiset ostavat?



F-rävenin Smock nro.1 maksaa 749 EUROA, eikä varmasti ole yhtään tätä parempi. Lisäksi heidän XXL kokonsa on hieman liian pieni tämän tyyppiselle takille, eikä XXXL kokoa enää ole olemassa.



Tehkää tähän Climashield vuori ja pari taskua siihen pitämään kännykkä lämpimänä, niin muuta vaatetta ei sitten ikinä enää tarvitsekaan!

3/2018 Takki vaan paranee, upea klassikko kaikkeen käyttöön.

Yllättävän salonkikelpoinen takki. Olisin tosin toivonut jonkinlaista vuorta tai edes verkkokangasta sisäpuolelle. Nyt ei tosiaan ole kuin yksi kerros kangasta suurimmaksi osaksi takkia. Vähentää laatuvaikutelmaa mielestäni. Muuten kyllä hyvän näköinen ja oloinen takki. Kehtaa vaikka kylälle lähteä jos ei tarrapaikat vaivaa.

I was looking forward to this jacket. It is well made, but unfortunately too big for me. The sleeves are way too wide and long. I hoped this civilian version of the military classic would be a bit more fitted, particularly given the measurements listed.

This is exactly what I was looking for. Excellent wind protection and really decent water resistance. The fit is quite roomy but I often wear several layers so for me that's a positive. I actually can't think of anything negative to say really. Shipping was very fast as well.

Itsellä on ollut käytössä brittiarmeijan smockki tovin ja hankittua sille kaveriksi Varustelekan oman version, niin myönettäköön, etten ole katunut ostostani. Taskuja riittää vaikka mihin ja leikkaus toimii. Tietysti jää kaipaamaan brittiarmeijan paskua kangasta, muttei haittaa tätä takkia käytettäessä. Suuresti odotan, että tästä takista tehdään M05-versiot.

Mine just arrived and I love it. Everything as described, lots of generous sized pockets (fleece lined hand warmers). Huge (zippered) underarm vents, very useful in warm weather. It may seem like a small thing but I am really impressed by the buttons on this thing. Rather than sewn-on (a common source of failure) they are threaded onto a piece of webbing that is secured to the jacket. This spreads the load and, as they are free to slide to a small extent, there isn't going to be a pressure point to cause them to fail. They should point that out in the description because it's a great feature on a practical piece of kit. Fit is best described as "baggy", which is how it should be as this is a working jacket, not a "Fashion" item. It's already my favourite "Go-to" coat.

I bought this baby about 6 months ago and it kicks major ass. It is windproof as advertised, actually did well on the motorbike rides. And with a liberal application of greenland wax it sheds rain like a duck's back. The real star here is Varusteleka for being the BEST surplus provider on the planet, keep up the good work.

If you have a short torso and huge legs like me, this jacket is a little long and may restrict leg movement if completely zipped and buttoned up. The fit is really roomy, so much so I switched for a smaller size and even then the sleeves have enough room for a bodybuilder's arms. You can carry a week's worth of food in the pockets if you want to and it's proven to withstand rainy and windy days. Excellent value for money considering an equivalent jacket from a major sportswear brand will cost thrice as much and probably have half the features

Jos pitäisi valita vain yksi takki mitä käyttäisin, niin se olisi varmaan tämä. Minulla on Mk II versio. Loistava leikkaus, tyylikkään näköinen ja hyvät taskut, käsien lämmittelytaskuista iso plussa. Arvomerkki- ja nimipohjat otin pois, hihoihin saivat jäädä paikalleen.

Brittiläisen Soldier 95 fleecetakki alle, niin pärjää kovillakin pakkasilla. Ainoaa miinusta siitä, että takin kangas ei ole niin vettä ja tuulta pitävää, kuin aidot brittiarmeijan smockit, mutta lähelle päästään. Aitojen smockien kangas on jotenkin "liukkaampaa" kuin Varustelekan versio, tämä kangas kerää pölyä ja hiuksia herkemmin. Suosittelen, että pari kertaa vuodessa käsittelet takin jollain kyllästesprayllä.

Paras takki mikä on ikinä ollut. Se on hyvä. Se on särmä. Se näyttää tosi-asialliselta. Ei kukaan tule sun naamaas sanoon että sä oot joku nössö.
Eli siis tosi epä-nössömäinen takki. Tämä on just sellainen takkki minkä puet päälles ja olet heti actionman. Tai jotain.
:D Ompelijoille hurraa kertaa kahdeksankymmentäviisikertaa! Ja kaikkille Varustelekalaisille kiitos tämä on ehtaa huipputuote!
Aivan fantastinen, siis aivan fantastinen.
Voi pitää pari raamattuja kanssa taskuissa. Kokeilin yhdellä KJVllä ja hyvin mahtui mutta oli pakko sivuittain laittaa se siihen rintataskuun että on kyllä hyvä!
Antaisin enemmän kuin viisi tähteä mutta jostain syystä ei sitä voi tehdä.

PROS: I highly recommend this! I got the first version of this and Small fits me perfectly. This replaced my old trusty Proper M65 jacket.
If you are "short" like me (172) you get extra protection when sitting down as the jacket will cover your butt too.
CONS: Main zipper is hard to zip. Seems like the zipper-stop at the bottom has malfunctioned somehow.
Pockets could use more stitch reinforcement.

Ok guys this is it, this is one of the best damn smocks I have had the pleasure of wearing. Great fit with or without layering under it. As a reference for anyone like me thinking of investing in one of these fine smocks who get afraid of centimeters and needs a reference point to figure out what size to get; I wear a Carhartt XLT, the 2XLT smock is perfect fit for layering underneath. The pockets are great, can stuff so much shit into this thing and not have to worry about popping seams. I actually use the zipped breast pockets for my concealed carry in one (CZ PCR if you were curious for size) and a couple of magazines in the other and you'd never guess that I am carrying. The smock is somewhat water resistant and in light rains/snow. My only drawbacks on the garment is that the double zipper is somewhat difficult to get started at times and the hand warming pockets would be nicer if the fleece was on both sides. With all of the other great qualities of the smock it is easy to overlook those two qualms. Get the damn smock, you won't regret it. cg

Great smock. Others said these run large, but I disagree. I have a british MTP smock, and it fits me perfectly, so I ordered more or less the same size from here... But it's a little small on me around the waist, especially. If I wanted a form-fitting jacket, this would fit the bill, but I want loose and baggy. I'm 6'2 and 230lbs, and got a medium-regular,.. I should have gotten a large. So hopefully I can sell locally and get another.

Might wait until if and when they get a dark brown smock, which would be the best. Green and black are still a little too military-looking for me.

I have both this and the latest model of British smock, which it was largely modeled after.

I'm on the fence about recommending this jacket at all--there could be some narrow demographic that enjoys the benefits over the drawbacks, but the latter are numerous. In some important ways, Sarma's smock works very well--civilian colours (well, only ONE colour, actually--black--unless army green is suddenly 'civilian'), no awful velcro on the storm flap to wreck your sweater or make noise, and slightly lighter material. These alone make it a huge advantage to use if you want to use it daily without looking like Rambo, so points to Sarma there.

Keep in mind when reading the below: Sarma's smock is *considerably* more expensive than a British surplus smock.

In almost every other way, though, the British smock is superior: better build quality, interior pockets, and the zipper actually works quickly. With Sarma's smock, you'd best add a good 2 minutes to your morning commute, the zipper is that finicky and troublesome; both it and the British smock does the same job but the British jacket just seems to work the first time.

The British smock's hood is nice and long, and has wire to form the appeture at the end. Sarma's is short and cheaply made--not especially good for rough weather.

Unlike the British jacket, Sarma's smock won't come used, and although I've not been through a downpour in it yet, the minimal water repellency works for light showers.

Sarma's smock is available in far fewer sizes than the British one, so if you're even slightly weird, you'll have problems. In my case, Sarma's jacket is too long and gets bunched up at the waist, which is uncomfortable and looks bad.

I mentioned build quality earlier. Varusteleka says of its Chinese-made smock: "There's good quality to be found in the PRC, as long as you don't choose the lowest bidder." ...but I don't think they went with a very good factory: there's loose threads on the garment in various places, and the seams in at least one place are--after only a week or two of use--starting to come apart. This is apparently not a jacket you can leave in your will, or perhaps even count on a few seasons from now. I'll bet that after being through an honest-to-god war plus several years of my using it, the British jacket is still good to go.

Haven't tried filling the pockets with booze yet like in that video. I guess that'd be another test.

Oikein hyvä päällystakki, mutta vaatii kuvauksenkin mukaan pakkasilla vähintään villapaidan alleen.

Ylimääräiset velcropaikat kun ratkoi pois niin tuli vielä fiksun näköinenkin.

Käytössä ollut neljä kuukautta eikä valittamisen aihetta ole löytynyt.

As with other Särma gear, this thing is very good for its price. It's sturdy, has these HUGE tape-attached buttons so it remains functional even if you don't use the zipper and great pockets. I like the zippered 'cross-draw' pockets that sit behind the top pockets in particular. Good thick polycotton weave, very windproof, it sheds light rain as well when new - I guess one could wax it like a big-brand 'Greenland' jacket (note that the sizing roughly corresponds to those, and having the real measurments of the garment helps a lot). I'm 1.83 m and just shy of 100 kg, most of the overweight being around my waist, and I comfortably fit in a size XL Regular with room for a nice thick fleece underneath. Don't buy this thing too tight if you want to stuff the pockets really full.
The sleeve pockets are large enough to actually put something in them; I keep a small flat first-aid pouch in one, a pen and an orange 'don't shoot me, I'm no deer!' armband in the other.
The only half star short of five is for the hood, which is a bit chaotic and does not roll up nice - there is a weird loop/button combo to hold it but that could be improved upon, it takes some skill to fold the hood up in such a way that the loop will reach the button. Mostly, the hood will hang open and as there is no real collar, there is something 'lacking' in the neck - better get a good scarf or a fleece with a nice collar. The hood also gets in the way a bit when putting it on, it tends to fall inside the jacket through the lack of a collar - this jacket really needs a basic collar. Having said that, this thing has rapidly become my favorite outdoor jacket, replacing a totally worn-out FJ Greenland that served me for more than two decades.

This jacket is doing exactly what they said it would. It stops the wind dead in it's tracks. I am wearing the Varustaleka merino hoody under this and am good down to 20 degrees because no wind comes through. The bottom/split zipper is an essential feature. I am 5'10", 225 lbs and I bought the 2XL size. It is roomy enough to wear the merino hoody and one of the really heavy grey Swiss army surplus wool sweaters underneath the smock when the temp goes below 20 degrees. The velcro on the sleeve tabs is first rate and sticks where you put it. The buttons are very well done and you can actually button/unbutton them with gloves on due to the ribbon strip they are threaded on. The hood is VERY generous and the adjustment tab will pull it down tight to the size you need it to be. The front zips up tight around the neck when you need the smock completely closed. It is also nice to be able to use only the buttons, the zipper, or both depending on your need for air flow. I have already purchased a spare - that is how much I like this coat. Frankly, I am a coat whore and am always chasing the Goldilocks coat that is perfect. I have over a dozen coats and jackets hanging in the closet now that don't get used because this is the only coat I wear now. Great value for the cost of this coat. Absolutely buy this coat!!!!

Just received my 2XLLong Smock. Fairly fast delivery - 8 days to Arkansas,U.S.A. I'm a large guy -250lbs, 6 1/2ft tall. The smock fits just perfect. The pockets are great The sleeves are a great length for me. I find a lot of jackets are too short in the sleeves and these are just right. Looking forward to wear this quite a bit. I willbe adding a liner when they receive more. To me, a great value.....

After owning this for about 10 months, I've become well-acquainted with the ups and downs of this smock. It definitely does what it says on the tin; it keeps the wind out nicely, and keeps you at least somewhat warm to about 5 C. Pair it with a light fleece, and you'll keep toasty to about -3 C; with a 'middleweight' fleece, you'll be good to -8 or so. There are lots of pockets, and the fastening on those buttons are solid.

However, as others have pointed out after I got this, the fit and finish is definitely lacking; there were loose threads everywhere. But worse is the zipper, which is a colossal pain in the ass; it's both hard to zip and once it got stuck in an impossible position that led to the end of the zipper getting detached from the jacket. I've had this jacket for less than a year, and it's already starting to break.

It would be hard to recommend this jacket to someone until Varusteleka fixed its reliability issues, especially the busted zipper.

Bought in black, large long. I'm about 6' 2", usually a 42-44 long in any jacket (blazer etc.) or large in coats, and this size OK for me. Loose enough for other gear under it, sleeve length great, often end up with coats too short in sleeve, very annoying, but this one well thought out. Good hood, good assortment of pockets, can see me stuffing allsorts in them and doing without a bag for walks and 'days out'. Nice one.

Mk 1 käytössä nyt kolmatta syys-talvi-kevätkautta. olen pessyt takiin pari kertaa käyttökauden päätteeksi ja uusinut vedenhylkivvyden suihkeella, suihkeen merkki ei nyr muistu mieleen. Itse pidän enemmän ykkösmallin kokovihreästä näöstä, joskin raksin nimi- ja arvomerkkitarrapohjat pois rinnasta, koska niille ei ole siviiliulkoilussa tarvetta. Sotahommiin on toiset vermeet! Hihatarrat säilytin, normaalisti pidän niissä heijastimia, mutta tarvittaessa moraali/supa/kerhomerkkejä. Aivan mainio takki viileän-kylmän sään hengittäväksi kuorikerrokseksi!

Miinuksena XXL Long- koon vyötärökiristysnauhan mitoitus kymmenkunta senttiä liian ylös, itselläni se on noin alimpien kylkiluiden tasalla, kun vyötärö tällaisella hieman tukevammallakin (185cm/n 110 kg) on kymmenkunta senttiä alempana. Ilmeisesti long-kokojen pituuden lisäys on vain helmassa? Meitä pitkäselkäisiä on paljon Suomessa!

Vielä pieni toive, jonka olen lähettänyt suoraan Lekaankin: Tehkää vielä samasta kankaasta viileän sään vuorattu lippalakki tyyliä SA M91 / US M43!

Nyt on pidetty smokkia puoli vuotta ja pärjää tällä talvenkin kun otti väjjän ja pistää kerrosta alle. Vetskarit ei ole mitään hempulota ja taskut vetää kauppakassillisen tavaraa. Tykkäsin ennen maihareista, mutta nyt tätä vaan pidän. Kainalovetskoista kantsii napsia vetimennauhat pois, ettei häirittee eikä tartu repunremmeihin.

Takki on ollut kohta päivittäiskäytössä melkein 1.5 vuotta (pl. lämpimät kesäkelit) ja ei tästä ole tullut mitään negatiivista mieleen, paras takkiostos tähän mennessä.
Taskuihin saa katoamaan tavaraa melkein loputtomasti ja varsinkin korkealle menevät tilavat rintataskut on todellä kätevät, kokonainen subi menee kätevästi säilöön ja paahdettuna lämmittää kivasti viileällä kelillä. Lentomatkustellessakin taskujen määrästä on iloa, kun taskuihin mahtuu kaikkea sälää käsimatkatavaroista tilaa viemästä, Bosen vastamelukuulokkeetkin (QC35) mahtuu ihan mukavasti suojakotelon kanssa rintataskuun kuljetukseen. Kovilla pakkasilla mukava yhdistelmä kerrostettuna Särmä fleecetakin kanssa ja toimii ihan hyvin hupullisenkin version kanssa, tuplahuppu ei ole haitannut yhtään.

Käytännöllinen takki. Hihat kerrankin tarpeeksi pitkät ja kaulus sekä huppu antavat tarvittaessa hyvin suojaa. Kangaskin vaikuttaa hintaan nähden laadukkaalta mutta ompeleitten kestävyys epäilyttää, ensimmäisenä saapunutta takkia sovittaessa vyötärökiristysremmin pää irtosi ompeleestaan vaikka tiukata en kerennyt kuin nimeksi ( toivottavasti oli vain "maanantai-kappale" )

Lisäksi kokoluokitus mielestäni erikoinen. Itselläni rinnanympärys on 114cm joten tilasin ensin taulukon mukaan XL-kokoisen takin joka oli aivan liian iso. Tilalle L-kokoinen ja alle voin silti laittaa esim. Brittiläisen Soldier 95 fleece-vuoritakin ( joka on mitoitukseltaan myös reilu ) eikä ole lähelläkään että alkaisi ottaa mistään kiinni.

Makuasioita mutta en ymmärrä miksi takissa pitäisi olla niin montaa senttiä ylimääräistä leveyssuunnassa kuin mitä suositusten mukaisesti tilatussa takissa on.

It's really a great jacket! Versatile, comfortable, practical, well-thought out with really good zippers and eternal buttons.

The only minor drawback is the thin fabric in the bottom part, that is a bit too fragile and prone to tears. I don't know how I got a hole below the place were the lower pocket joins the fabric. I stitched it and all's good and great. I wear it every day, and I'm very happy with it.

As with other Särmä products, the final stitching is a bit coarse. I haven't experienced the problems others mention with the zipper. It's true you have to "get the hold if it" at first. But once you understand how it works, it's fine. Pretty resistant, and for what mine has taken, other zippers would have given up already.

I got this at the end of the winter.. and we were blessed with a longer winter. I can say that this is a good smock to layer with... and on warmer trips since it is now spring and 70's degrees f and 50's at night.. it is comfortable on its own. I typically just button it... only on really windy or rainy days have I zipped it. IT has been durable.. and several people ask where and how much....so I hope you got a few more sales.

However... due to my using the buttons alot the button eyes stitching has pulled and fraid alot. I have to mend it... which is a bummer.. but the reality is.. all gear needs maintance and I like the fact.. that it sort of says... I use the hell out of this and it is wearing like iron.

Hinta/laatu suhde kohdallaan. Hyvä taskutus ja leikkaus takissa. Oikeasti tuo kangas ei ole "windproof" vaikka nimessä tuo sana onkin. Esim. erään pohjoismaisen kettumerkin vastaava kangas on huomattavasti tuulenpitävämpää.
Kaupunkitakiksi tämä ok ja toimiva.

This a great jacket for everyday wear. Especially if you are someone who becomes frustrated at the ill thought out civvy jackets after being used to wearing proper issue gear for many years! I can't think of anything to say that hasn't already been said except for one thing;

Alot of people are mentioning that the length is a tad too long. The British smock is designed to modulate air into pockets within the jacket, trapping in heat. My advice (along with the entirety of the British army) is to use the draw cords at the waist and especially at the bottom. This should be tucked back up the inside to look smart and ally. If you leave it hanging down you'll just end up looking like an Army cadet on his first ex and probs be just as cold.

I received this yesterday. Initial impressions. Good quality material. Heavier than I expected. Sizings are very large so take care when ordering. I'm 191cm, 100kg and my chest is 110cm and I went for the 2XL long. I bought this as a jacket I could layer up and that had decent pockets for carrying stuff in. I will have absolutely no problem fitting multiple layers underneath and the pockets are amazingly substantial. I am sure even the XL Long would still give me plenty of room. The acutal yellow colour isn't as bright as on the web photos more a light yellow mustard colour which is probably better.

When I got the smock I noticed that for some crazy reason the bottom pockets were both right hand pockets !. The hand warmer bit of the left hand pocket opened onto the centre of the coat....so it was absolutely useless. I sent Varusteleka an e-mail last night asking if they would cover the cost of sending the coat back to Finland as it was a product fault. First thing this morning I had an e-mail saying a replacement coat was on its way to me and that there was no need to send back the coat and to "keep it for spares". This is amazing customer service ! I would have no hesitation in doing business with them again and recommending them as a very reliable company for after sales service.

Much better quality than I expected.

Robust fabric and zip (no problems with the zip despite what others have said). Well finished - no loose threads. Excellent design. Size as advertised. Great size, shape, design and number of pockets (maybe just one small interior pocket would be useful). Hood is a good size with a handy adjustment strap so it doesn't swamp you - unless you want it to.

I'm using it on the north-west coast of Scotland so, even in August, the windproof qualities have been tested and are great.

The showerproofing performed heroically (actually slightly better than I would have thought) but eventually I got damp (but given very heavy rain driven by 60mph wind gusts yesterday even Goretex would have been hard pushed to keep me dry). And it dried very quickly at room temperature.

Delivery was reasonably fast and at a very reasonable price given the source and considering some UK companies refuse to deliver to my postcode.

Mukavan kevyen tuntuinen takki syksy- ja keväthommiin, riittävillä tuuletuksilla. Kaiken kantotilan käytännöllisyydestä ei aivan varmuutta. Mutta ainakin kulkee kaulaliinat ja väliasun paidat taskuissa mukana ilman muita kantolaitteita.

Kokopolitiikka on reiluhko. Omille mitoilleni (185/85kg) taulukon mukainen koko olisi Large Long, mutta tuohon kokoon olisi mahtunut käyttäjän lisäksi kaverikin sisälle ja hihoissa oli todella reilusti mittaa. Jos alle olisi pukenut paksummin toppavaatetta tai vaikka pienen repun, niin sitten tuo koko olisi voinut olla sopiva.

Large Regular olisi hyvä koko, jos takki tulisi aktiivsempaan joka paikan käyttöön, mahdollisesti ympäri vuoden: alle mahtuu selvästi paljon välivaatetta ja liikkumatilaa olisi vielä reilusti.

Medium Long on taasen likiman "Large/hoikka". Itselleni hihat asettuvat samaan mittaan kuin Largessa, mutta olkasaumat istuvat paremmin kohdalleen arkivaatetuksen kanssa. Ja allekin mahtuu kausikäyttöön sopivasti väliin villatakki, eikä takki vielä kiristä. Liikkumatilaa saa sitten tehtyä lisää avaamalla hiukan alavetoketjua. Eli arkikäyttöä ajatellen kooksi valikoitui M/Long.

Kohta vuoden verran ollut käytössä. Koko on mallia reilu kun rinnanympäryksen mukaan tilasin. Pidän erityisesti taskuista. Paikallisen sekatavarakaupan steven ilme oli näkemisen arvoinen kun hänen silmiensä alta kurvasin kauppaan ja ennen puomeja pysähdyin, otin taka-askeleita ja palasin säilytyslokeroille siihen herran viereen ja aloin lappamaan taskuista mm. nipun täyspitkiä rautasahan teriä, WD-40 pullon, pienen käsihöylän, ym. lenkkiavaimia.

Viimeisen tähden nipistää hieman viimeistelemättömät ompeleet ja se että vetoketjun ompeleet on alapäästä kokonaan rarkenneet siitä vetoketjun kovamuovisesta härpäkästä alle kuudessa kuukaudessa. Kertokaa minulle, mistä löydän takin jonka vetoketju oikeasti kestää edes 2 vuotta?

I couldn't be happier with this jacket. It does what it's meant to do - protect from the elements - and looks great. I have been caught in a few rain showers and the water proofing was much better than I expected. I haven't encountered any of the zip problems that people have mentioned, or noticed any loose threads. Generally I would say that the finish is really good. The price is amazing. I wouldn't be surprised to see something this good selling for 2 or 3 times the price.I am really fussy about jackets and this is the first one in years where I am completely satisfied.



I also want to put in a good word for the customer service at Varusteleka. I initially bought a Brandit M65 jacket online but it was too big so I took it to the shop to change it for a smaller one. I was still not happy with the fit and then after a few weeks of normal use (ie just commuting), the under arm seams came unstitched on both sides (I actually heard one of them go when I bent down to tie a lace) so I took it back to the shop again and asked if I could swap it for the Särmä Wind Proof Smock and on both occasions they dealt with me patiently (I explained that my finnish was a bit basic but I wanted to try and cope without resorting to english) and courteously and exchanged without any question. Customer service isn't universally brilliant in Finland (or the UK for that matter - and not to single these countries out, they're just the only ones I have enough experience of to comment on) but Varusteleka are excellent.

Hyvä takki, tilavat taskut ja hyvä pyöräilessä, kun pitää tosiaan sen tuulen poissa alemmilta vaatekerroksilta.

MUTTA! Kannattaa katsastaa missä asti takin helma heiluu kyykistyessä. Itellä alkaa vetoketjun ommellukset repeytymään parin äkkinäisen kyykistymisen jäljiltä. Tää varmaan korjaantuis jollain elastisella matskulla?

There's no better fall/winter/spring jacket for the money, it is of a comparatively high quality and it is well thought out. I have two, one in green (the older model) and one in black that I use as my everyday jacket. Love them both.

The only reason its not getting five stars is because of the somewhat high amount of loose threads and such, nothing that impacts function but it requires the costumer to go through and snip these off. I'd pay another 5-10 € for a better finishing job, but I will be getting another one of these soon.

Another suggestion would be to make a more "civilian" version (like the windproof parka, but for ) with removed velcro patches, maybe smaller profile chest pockets.

Very good jacket. As advertised windproof, waterproof, keeps you warm and cozy. I am a tall and slim guy, 195cm and 83kg, so medium-long size fits me perfectly. Pockets are great and very practical, hell for a military issue jacket it is very fashionable, i have it in yelow colour and got many compliments on it. Only thing i do not like is that the final QC is a bit dodgy, by that i mean there are a lot loose threads in holes for the buttons. Other than that, exceptional jacket for the price.
And one more thing not related to the jacket, i am from Serbia, please please, do not use DHL to send packages here, if there is an option to send with regular mail, EMS or the slow kind, please add it. I had to pay 50 euros on top of the price of the items + shipping. Ok, there are customs charges, but DHL charged me 25 euros on top of the shipping i initialy paid, and they are slow. I would very much like to continue shoping from you guys, you are great, and that is the only isue i have.
Thank you.

Parin vuoden käyttökokemuksen perusteella hintaansa näden asiallinen takki. Reilusti isoja taskuja ja kätevät taskut käsien lämmittelyyn. Mukavan väljä, mutta silti ryhdikäs leikkaus. Miinusta vetoketjun käytön hankaluudesta sekä viimeistelystä - ompeleista jäänyt sojoittamaan irtonaisia langan päitä. Vetoketjun ompeleet alkoivat repeytyä alhaalta noin vuoden käytön jälkeen, mutta Varusteleka kuitenkin hoiti korjauksen todella asiallisesti ja nyt takki on parempi kuin uusi.

It's a great allrounder, very comfy and the fabric is nice! Sizing is a bit on the large side, maybe pick one size smaller? 185/89kg chest 106cm, M Long fits nice. I could wear winter jacket under Large Regular.

Tänään saapui 2016-1 valmistettu kiertotalousrotsini. Väri on musta ja koko Medium. Takki tuoksuu pesuaineelle , mutta siitä huolimatta likatahroja takin ulkopinnasta löytyy oikean rintataskun alueelta.
Koko on sopiva 173/ 68 olemukselleni . Vetoketjut toimivat ja taskukapasiteetti on riittävä. Velcropinnat ovat hyvässä kunnossa, kuin uudet. Lisää kokemuksiani tulossa sitten kun olen sitä päässyt ulkosalla testaamaan.

Awesome piece of gear!

Bought: Medium Regular (170-180 / 92-100 cm)

My measurements:
- body length: 183cm (72.04").
- front hollow to hem to crotch: 70cm (27.55").
- chest size: 100cm (39.37").
- arm length; shoulder to wrist: 58cm (22.83").
- weight: 81Kg.
- waist; above hip bone: 86cm (33.85").

Fit:
- Back covers my whole rear to the underside of my bottom.
- Arms are covered beyond my wrist and stops half way my hands. Streching them won't pull back the sleeves. The velcro straps make it stay on my wrist and prevent cold air getting in.
- Front is completely covered and the collar stops under my chin like a nice scarf.
- Roomy enough for layering but not a trash bag when wearing it alone. You can tighten the bottom and waist with elastics. This tailoring makes it more snug.
- Pockets are all lined with the outer fabric, so no mesh or crappy quality. Meaning what's inside is there to stay!
- Behind the bottom two front pockets you have another pocket where you can warm your hands against the fleece lining, awesome!

Finish:
- Overall very wel and rugged stiching, though a bit rough looking, but hey... who's wearing it, Barbie?
- Pockets have overlap on the fold. So when closed you not only cover the pocket, but the pocket is folded shut as well.
- Fabric feels tough and woven very tight, it resembles the G1000 of Fjall Raven.

Score:
- Lost half a star due to the bottom closure elastic. I had to undo the knots and feed them through the pockets myself. Not a dealbreaker!

Mulla on ollut (vanhanmallinen) takki käytössä noin vuoden, suunnilleen joka päivä. Vanhanmallisessa ei ollut erikseen kokoa "medium long" eikä se ollut vettähylkivä, mikä tuli testattua (vaatevaha auttoi tähän). Eli koko on "leveä" ja alle mahtuu villapaita ja ohut toppatakki, jolla pärjää pakkasessakin.

Taskutilaa on järkyttävän paljon!

Tästä seuraa, että takki toimii paremmin metsässä tai koiralenkillä kuin kaupungissa. Voi olla että uudenmallisessa jää vähemmän tilaa takin alle. Huppu on iso ja toimii hyvin.

Works surprisingly well to protect from the Canadian winter with just a light sweater underneath. I bought the Large-Long version so I could wear a sweater underneath and it fits perfectly. I recommend buying 2 sizes bigger if you want even more extra room when wearing a sweater or additional layers underneath.

Erinomainen takki joka soveltuu mille tahansa säälle. Talvipakkasella vastikään -18C ja kyllä tarkenee, kunhan muistaa intistä opitun kerrospukeutumisen.

Kesällä perheen kanssa luontoretkellä (kannoin tavarat ja lapset 2kpl ja vaimo käveli perässä :D) hyttyset ei kiusanneet eikä tullut liian kuuma. Kainalon vetoketjut auki ja ilma pääsi kiertämään

Jos miinusta on annettava aseella uhaten niin takki ei pidä vettä. Sehän on kuitenkin jo mainittu esitetekstissä.

Taskut ovat loistavat ja riittävät. Etenkin rintataskut ja ns. käsien lämmitystaskut ovat ISO plussa!

Hankin vastikään tämän takin kakkossukupolven mallin. Kolmas sukupolvi vaikuttaa vähän paremmalta. Hintakin on sama. En viitsi käyttää Lekan armollista palautusmahdollisuutta. Ei se tuote siitä niin paljon parane, että näkisin vaivaa. On tämä uusi versio selvästi ainakin vähän vanhaa parempi.

Mustista yksityiskohdista ja paljosta velcrosta on ollut kritiikkiä. Minua ei haittaa. Takin takaosaan kaipaisin sen verran velcroa, että saa tarvittaessa heiastimen kiinni. Liikenteessä on hyvä olla heiastin. Joskus taas haluaa olla luonnossa niin, ettei kaikki heti huomaa. Pohjoismaisten jokamiehenoikeuksien vaikutuspiirissäkin on joskus kiva olla katveessa kaiken maailman kyselijöiltä, vaikkei varsinaiseen steath campingiin ole tarvetta. Oliivinvihreä on tarpeeksi hyvä stealth camping- väri Suomessa ympäri vuoden.

Outstanding jacket and I love it. Plenty of pockets for outdoor activities, but this is all covered in the description. I'm in the UK and was concerned about sizing, however, I found a similar jacket at home, measured it and bought the corresponding size, fits perfectly !!!!!!!
This is a top quality garment, well priced. It arrived at my home about 4 days after order, at a postage cost less than that to send something across the UK. All in all superb service from this company and I'd have no hesitation in recommending them, or this coat.
