Särmä merino socks
If you still use cotton socks, dump them now and get these instead. These are superb for outdoor use, but work just as well as formal wear too! These aren't thick, so they can be used around the year. Made with our own specs in Finland.
Särmä trouser belt, black
A simple military style trouser belt, 3 cm wide and 130 cm long, easily shortened to any desired length. Made from polyester webbing with a nickel-free steel buckle.
Särmä merino wool long johns, black
As the weather gets cold and nasty, so do cotton undergarments. The answer is to switch to merino wool. These have a nice, snug fit for best functionality. We had these made in Lithuania just for us.
Salomon Quest 4D GTX Forces, black
The crossbreed of a sneaker and a mountain boot is just that - works well in rough terrain, but fits like a sneaker. Means it's possible to give a good sprint if necessary. Lined with Gore-Tex and has a bit of shaft too. "Military" colour scheme, i.e. black. A popular choice among many special forces etc. these days.
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.
If the weather in spring and fall are not your cup of tea, waterproof and breathable trousers like these just might change that.
ECWCS trousers are modern hardshell trousers made of 3-layer laminate with Dintex membrane. You’ll be safe and sound from the elements in these, but they breathe better than rubber pants. Conquering the Alps is not mandatory if you choose to wear these: just taking the dog out for a walk in miserable weather is a good application for these. There’s no lining, so the principles of layered clothing apply: wear long johns and a thermal mid-layer when necessary.
The military background means simple functionality. Instead of pockets these trousers have pass-throughs to access the pockets of trousers you wear undernath, so you don’t have to switch stuff from one pocket to another when putting these on. The pass-throughs have water resistant zippers and flaps with snap-fasteners to keep water outside.
Bang for the buck is strong with these ones. Compared to really cheap shell pants the material is more pliable and not as noisy, although it’s certainly not a piece you’d wear for silent hunting. Critical zippers and snap fasteners are made by YKK and Prym, and all seams have had special attention paid to them with seam tape from Bemis (hehe, Benis).
Sizes in the normal US system, and run a bit small. Pick a larger size than you normally would. Usually we wouldn't recommend this, but if you pick the size you usually wear, it's going to be tight and sexy, and you DON'T want that with shell trousers. Lengthwise these are as they should be: "Regular" fits about 170-180 cm tall people, "Long" will be good for just a tad over 190 cm tall person too.
We recommend hand-washing waterproof clothing, no matter what the tag might say.
