Our latest military vintage fashion hit is this old Swiss mountain troopers' windbreaker coat. Clean and literally straightforward in appearance, the jacket is superbly well made in Switzerland during the Cold War years.

  • Unlined, windproof shell jacket
  • Large useful pockets
  • Zipper and snap front

Almost with no exception the Swiss army designers have been implementing wonderfully personal solutions to the gear. Well, this is one of those exceptions. It's just a windbreaker coat made superbly well. Zipper & snap front, roomy cut and small pathetic hood. Drawcord adjustment on the waist and hem.

Complete with a load of good roomy pockets: four large ones on the outside and three inside pockets, all with hook-n-loop closure for extra security (remember, for mountain climbing) and one first aid pocket, which fits a pack of smokes by the way.

Additionally the jacket has the very important rump strap! This strap is meant to be run through the back of the hem under the crotch, and buttoned up to the front. With it, the jacket will stay properly on you no matter which way you're hanging. An important thing in everyday use as well no doubt.

Old school quality

Made of gray-green 50/50% cotton and polyester blend, keeps out wind and swells shut when wet (still not a raincoat). The whole package seems indestructible, which it probably is. Even the zipper is metal for that extra secure feeling. All of the hardware is Swiss made too.

Pro tip: if you need stronger water resistance, try out our Särmä fabric wax!

Size info

Sized according to the EU system, with some sizes left out - the system goes like 44, 48, 52, 56. Works OK for a field jacket. In the brackets is the comparabe US-style size, then user's recommended height and chest circumference in centimetres.

The sleeves run short! This is probably intentional: they won't catch on anything when military-climbing. Our height recommendations reflect this fact. Ignore those if you don't mind.

The cut is generous on purpose - you are supposed to fit heavy sweaters and such under this.

Real Swiss surplus

Used, but in totally serviceable shape. We have a feeling these won't be around too long as they're quite special stuff.

Takki oli hyväkuntoinen, tuttu Leka tuoksu ja melkolailla kuvauksen mukainen. Jätän yhden tähden pois koska hihat olivat (kuten muutamassa muussakin varustelekasta hankitussa takissa) lyhyehköt, olen 173/80 (sylimitta 173)ja otin koon 52.
Edit. Nyt kun luin tarkemmin, niin hihoistahan jopa varoitetaan etukäteen.

I live in the USA. This jacket is great. It has 4 large exterior pockets, 3 large interior pockets, and 1 small interior pocket. Most pockets have a full-length velcro closing which is very strong. The exterior pockets also have metal clasp buttons.



The zipper ends before the jacket does, and beyond that, there are metal clasp buttons to close the jacket. This is extremely helpful because it means that the buttons can be unfastened when sitting down or kneeling, and the jacket will not fold in an awkward way over the legs (compared to if the zipper was the full length of the jacket).



The jacket is water-resistant (drops of water will roll off of the fabric) but some water will still penetrate to the interior.



I am 5 feet, 9 inches tall (175 cm) and ordered a size 52. This size jacket fits me very well. The jacket length extends 6 inches beyond my waist. The sleeves end at my wrists.
