International orders have taken off at record speed, and our system updates haven't been able to keep up. This will be fixed next week, and orders will ship out in the promised one to two day time frame. A portion of US orders are still more or less stuck at JFK, but it appears as if things are starting to clear up, finally.
As you can see from Facebook post, the situation is under control. Don't panic!
Savotta Minijääkäri backpack, olive drab108.99 USD
Made in Finland. Let's play a game! Find a weak spot in the Minijääkäri (Mini Jaeger) backpack. Difficulty level: nightmare.
M05 duvet cover & pillow case45.99 USD
Finally a proper good set of everynight sleeping accessories. There's just one downside - you might not find your bed anymore thanks to the Finnish M05 camo! On the upside if you manage to get between these, no-one can find you either.
Särmä hoodless fleece jacket, black45.99 USD
A light fleece jacket is your best friend in cool but nice weather, when just a T-shirt is too little but other jackets would be too much.
Särmä cargo trousers Mk. II, black36.99 USD
Lightweight, practical and comfy polycotton ripstop trousers with an excellent cut. Because we had these made in huge volumes, the end price could be kept very reasonable.
Särmä Assault Pack Mk. III31.99 USD
Good and affordable urban rucksack of our own design - partially, at least. Just enough different compartments, compact dimensions but expands to about 20 litres (even more with extra pouches). If you have a lot of stuff that has to be accessed all the time, this is the thing for you.
Särmä merino socks9.99 USD
Made in Finland. 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.
Jalas Fantom Drylock144.99 USD
Made in Finland. In Finland the comic character "The Phantom" (you know, the butch guy who runs around the Bengal jungle in purple tights) is immensely popular. In fact he's so famous that Jalas actually went and named a boot after him. And a top quality boot it is too! We are especially thrilled, as these fit our wide, hairy Finnish hobbit feet well.
Czechoslovakian foot wrap, surplus0.99 USD
Not often do you find such relics today - after all these years the Czech army finally let go of their foot wraps. Being Finns we naturally were very interested in them. These are tied up probably like the Soviet and Finnish wraps, which are close relatives. 1 pc means 1 wrap! Buy two if you are lucky enough to have two feet! Buy one if you just intend to use it as a rag.
British PCS trousers, MTP, surplus21.99 - 27.99 USD
The best military trousers in the world with a fancy camo pattern. These are the new PCS (Personal Clothing System) model, not Soldier 95. Official British army surplus, would you look at that!
Polish wool blanket, thick, surplus31.99 USD
Just like most ex-com bloc blankets, the Polish one is very thick and, unlike we initially expected, is made of real wool instead of cat-and-brick blend.
BW turtle neck shirt, olive drab, surplus3.99 USD
Long sleeves, zippered high collar and cotton fabric. Very comfy. A good general purpose long sleeve top to have around the house. Cheap and durable, maybe you should get two while you're at it?
BW combat gloves, Flecktarn, surplus9.99 USD
Flecktarn camouflaged general purpose gloves with leather palm. These also have a light lining, but they're not really winter gloves. German Bundeswehr surplus.
BW toiletry bag, olive drab, surplus1.99 USD
A simple pouch to carry your wash kit in. One compartment with smaller sections, water drainage vents and a zipper.
Swedish M26 steel helmet, surplus ADDED TODAY22.99 USD
Some years ago these pots were dirt cheap. Now they're slowly getting more and more scarce. The model 1926 helmet saw use in the Swedish army well after the world wars and many years into the cold war, and even later still stored them in case of a crisis.
Belgian helmet camouflage net, surplus ADDED TODAY3.99 USD
A classic camouflage net for a steel helmet, these Belgian Cold War era surplus nets are meant for M1 style pots, but work practically with any steel helmet. If the net seems too tight, just use some extension cord to fit it right.
Sotima reflective patch, velcro ADDED TODAY3.99 USD
Made in Finland. This patch means you're a fan of Finnish craft brew products. Sotima is a bar specialized in them, located in the Varusteleka shop.
NVA officer's collar tabs, infantry, surplus ADDED TODAY3.99 USD
East German Nationale Volksarmee collar tabs for an infantry officer's tunic. A hefty pair, these bring some weight to your collar! Very much like the WW2 Wehrmacht tabs, apparently the post-war communists of the DDR were right at home with these too.
British aramid contact gloves, surplus ADDED TODAY5.99 USD
How can you make a pair of cheap yet actually good all-round gloves for mass issue? The British answer is quite genius. These are damn simple, knitted from fire retardant aramid fibres and fitted with numerous small rubber dots on the palms and fingers. The fit is snug and good for fine tasks such as handling a rifle, fire retardancy is a must these days and the rubber dots give the grip you need to safely handle gear and tools. And best of all these are damn cheap!
Särmä TST M05 combat shirt ADDED TODAY90.99 USD
Our own tweaked version of the Finnish army M11 combat shirt, a neat design that incorporates many clever features in a solid package. FR knit torso and Finnish M05 woodland camouflage sleeves.
Alpina Desert Black ADDED TODAY90.99 USD
Holy shit, they took the classic US Jungle Boot, brought it to modern age, coloured it black and removed the drainage holes! Thus is born the perfect warm/mild weather boot as the name implies, but in black for general use. Too good to be true? Well it is - this is a one-off surplus lot from a Slovenian army boot purchase, because OF COURSE it is.
Czech M52 steel helmet, surplus RESTOCKED TODAY13.99 USD
The Czech helmet is modeled directly after the Soviet SSh40, but with different lining. The chinstrap is either nylon or leather, depends on when the pot is made. All of these are old Cold War surplus.
US box, decontamination RESTOCKED TODAY4.99 USD
Originally used for storing decontamination agents, but apparently a small plastic box might have a plethora of other uses. These are unissued & completely clean.
Särmä Classic Henley Shirt, merino wool, dark grey RESTOCKED TODAY63.99 USD
A traditional Henley style shirt, but made properly - these have only real, functional features and are woven from Merino wool. Works equally well in everyday use and outdoor activities, both by function and looks, both as an undershirt or as an additional warm layer. What's not to love here?

An extremely simple tourniquet pouch, made from extremely strong military webbing with a quick and easy to use velcro flap.
