Mil-Tec fleece sleeping bag, black
A simple fleece sleeping bag. This is, in practice, the US Army lightweight Patrol Bag but made from Fleece. The icluded stuff sack is not good, but the bag itself is a very nice thing.
Finnish sleeping mat
Now, if there's something the Finnish army can do right, it's the sleeping gear. Our kip mat is the best one we've ever seen, to be honest. These are made by the official army contractor, Savotta. You can see from the price you've got quality coming.
Terävä Skrama, stainless steel
The stainless steel version of the Skrama, designed for those who work under constantly wet and humid conditions. The Skrama is a versatile heavy duty bush knife - a tool that builds shelters, chops firewood and even carves feather sticks! If you're taking just one knife into the bush the Skrama is a viable option. This is naturally no axe, nor a precision tool for extremely meticulous work, but something in between and a solid and dependable companion above all.

Särmä TST L1 T-shirt, merino wool

Alright, now you can't blame us for not having sleeping bags for big people. Or if you just want a bag where you can move around on your own or with someone else, we suggest taking a look at this.
Savotta is a long-time contractor for the Finnish army. Along with military kit, they produce high-end civilian stuff too, like this super roomy sleeping bag.
While this might look like the carrying bag for the world's biggest football, the Yukon is actually just like any mummy type sleeping bag, but bigger: about 2 m circumference and 2 m length should suffice for the hungriest of men. However, if you are close to 200 cm tall, you might have to bend your knees a bit to be comfortable. In addition to being big, this thing is warm - you should survive in up to -30 degrees celsius, according to the manufacturer. Of course common sense applies, don't sleep in the snow and all that.
This bag packs surprisingly small for being so roomy. When stuffed in the provided compression sack, the measurements are about 30 x 55 cm. The package weighs just over 3 kg. The straps on the compression sack are a tad short, so you'll have to fight a bit to get them properly tightened, but otherwise the sack is OK - keeps water out from every direction and the size is good.
Material & maintenance
Filled with silicon impregnated fibre. It's like polyester, but better. You can wash this at 30-40 degrees celsius, but we'd recommend keeping it to a minimum - every wash takes a bit off the insulating capability of the bag (this goes for all sleeping bags). Use a liner bag instead and wash that when needs must.
Factory new, made by Savotta in Finland.
