This here is just that, a proper no-nonsense leather belt made from the finest vegetable tanned leather. Works equally well for keeping your pants up or as an equipment carrier for tools and gear. A bit like the Fjällräven Equipment Belt actually, but without the added costs of a fancy brand name.

Gorka trousers are probably among the best field trousers we've seen, and especially fit for people who like simple, durable stuff. These are very popular in Russia among all kinds of outdoor-types besides the military, and for a reason!
- Roomy cut for unrestrained movement.
- Button fly, large belt loops and suspender loops for M-1950 style suspenders (suspenders not included).
- Reinforced knees, seat and shins.
- Elastics on the waist and around the calves.
- Two large cargo pockets, two back pockets and normal slash pockets on the sides. A notable feature is the loss-proof cargo pocket closure system where the pockets folds in a way that it closes the mouth completely.
- All in all there isn't a thing you couldn't repair if you own buttons, a needle and thread!
The Gorka is made from a base layer of cotton, in the style of the old Plash Palatka rain capes. The Gorka is water repellent to some extent when new, but not a straightforward rubbery rain suit, thus it breathes well. Still, do not treat this as a waterproof garment - it isn't one. The Tactic-9 Gorka is not as windproof as many others thanks to the slightly less densely woven fabric, but does breathe better, making it more appropriate for warm weather use.
All hard wearing areas are reinforced with a strong polycotton blend, either ripstop reinforced or not, this varies from one pair to the other. Machine washing in 40 degrees is fine, please note that the base colour fades a bit over time, just like memories of better times.
Not lined in any way, which makes the suit wearable both in the summer and winter. It's recommended to wear appropriate layered clothing or a field uniform underneath.
First the traditional Russian size, then the same converted to centimetres - first height, then waist circumference. It's not the end of the world if you pick a size larger than you'd normally wear. Likewise if you're a few cm off from the recommended height to any direction, don't worry, it'll fit.
Our model is 175 cm tall with a waist circumference of 84 cm and wears size 48-4 (176 / 84) garment. There's enough room for a nice thick pair of long johns underneath.
All Russian made
These are made by the Russian company Tactic-9, the same manufacturer who does all the Jagel camo stuff we sold. These are made in Russia.
Availability is a bit unpredictable - we can't give any estimates of restock. Likewise, no idea about the sizes we get. What we do know is that the amounts are small.
