US ECWCS trousers, Gore-Tex, Woodland, surplus
Real deal US Gore-Tex trousers in Woodland camouflage. These are a part of the ECWCS clothing system.
US Army ECWCS Generation I uniform. ECWCS stands for Extended Cold Weather Clothing System, which was developed in the 1980's.
The ECWCS uniform consists of a jacket and trousers, both with Gore-Tex membrane and taped seams. ECWCS systems enables action in all climates - damp to arctic cold (or even for those cold desert nights). The secret lies in a clothing system based on layers. These trousers (and the jacket) are the outer layer. Both the trousers and the jacket are loosely fit to accommodate warm layers underneath.
The Gore-Tex trousers have two inlets for undergarment access, one on each side. The legs have zippers, so that the trousers can be pulled on easily with boots on. The waist can be adjusted with an elastic cord. Snap fastener & zipper fly.
Machine wash warm with a detergent suitable for technical membrane clothes. These clothes work best when kept clean, so don't neglect it! Treat with something the folks at your local sports shop told you is good for shell jackets, and it'll actually breathe better: a water-repelling garment breathes, unlike a soaked one.
The US Army sizing is different from civilian manufactured clothes. Basically Small, Medium, Large etc. only refer to width and there are three basic length groups Short, Regular and Long. Following the easy size you'll find recommended user total height and waist in centimetres.
For more details take a look at the US trousers size chart page.
US Military Surplus
Used, but in serviceable condition. These were originally made to last in rough conditions, but looks like harm was not found wearing these. Single snap-fasteners might be damaged and hooks-and-loops are not brand new of course.

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
