Teesar ECWCS Level 5 Soft Shell trousers
A decent civilian copy of the US Army Gen3 ECWCS Level 5 soft shell trousers in black, you won't look like a military-lunatic or deserter on the run in these! A very good choice for almost any use.
These are made of tight woven nylon fabric, which is not completely waterproof, but still holds off rain quite well. The uniform does not get very wet and dries quickly. It is completely windproof and, having no membrane, very breathable.
- Zipper & press-button fly, elastic waist, belt loops, suspender loops
- Zippers on waist and leg ends for easy donning with shoes on, waist zippers also give access to whatever you have inside your trousers
- Side "hand warming" pockets and big cargo pockets
- Press studs on leg ends
- Very light weight, which, with the spacious cut, allows for completely unrestricted movement
Made of 98% nylon, 2% spandex. According to the manufacturer, the material is identical to the stuff used by the US army. No membrane = highest possible breathability and light weight compared to membrane clothing. The fabric is windproof and water-repellent to some extent, i.e. keeps out light rain. Can be treated to be more waterproof.
First easy US style size (the size marked on the trousers), in the brackets our estimates of user's suitable height and waist in centimetres. If you fall between two sizes, pick the larger one.
Teesar and Mil-Tec are brands by Sturm. Of these two, Teesar is "the better one", but both give a good bang for the buck. While these do not fill any military specs, they work well in civilian life. At least we have been satisfied with these.

Housut on varmasti ihan hyvät joten suosittelen, mutta voisiko kokoja olla lyhyemmillä lahkeilla? Huonot pisteet tulee nyt siis Lekan kokotaulukolle, joka on täysin pielessä. Mielestäni. Ja sitähän tässä kysyttiin.
