TEMPERATURE, HUMIDITY & AIR

All jackets except the thermal jacket have arm pit zippers for ventilation. When wearing the shell jacket on top of the combat jacket and fleece jacket they all have arm pit zips lined up, making it possible to ventilate even when carrying three layers on top of each other.

The thermal jacket is optimized for insulation and is not supposed to be used under heavy work load, but for longer periods. The cuffs of the thermal and fleece jackets are elastic, always keeping the warm air on the inside. The front of our jackets are closed by press buttons and zippers.

The waist and lower edge of jackets are fitted with elastic cords that can be tightened to keep wind and snow, or insects out.

The combat and hot weather trousers both have full length zippers on the outside leg. Velcro flap is tucked away and secured by a loop patch when ventilating.

WOOL, MESH & TERRY

Wool mesh is the most comfortable underwear material to be found. The mesh creates a buffering zone between the skin and outer layers, with a reduced contact area and a lot of air. At low activity this means optimal insulation and a minimum of thermal bridges, at high activity body heat and humidity is effectively transported through the net. The wool mesh dries quickly and feels comfortable against the skin.

The mesh underwear are fitted with a layer of jersey under the mesh on the shoulders, elbow and knees to pad them and make them comfortable while keeping the space that the mesh brings for ventilation.
The briefs have long legs to keep them from riding up, which may be an issue if you have sturdy thighs.
The bra has removable foam insert that can be used depending on the soldier’s preferences.
All underwear is made in a minimum of 76% Merino Wool. All parts of the garments are made in No Melt No Drip materials except the labels.

Labels are placed on the outside of the garment, also eliminating itching.
The elastic waist bands are placed inside No Melt No Drip tunnels, to ensure complete No Melt No Drip. This is of highest importance since the underwears are carried next to bare skin.

The male boxer briefs are plain without a fly opening, a feature that a majority does not use anyhow. The Long Johns however, are worn with more layers, higher up on the waist and in combination with thick jackets and here the fly opening is of good use.
The collar of the Terry wool shirt and Zip shirt is designed to fit below the chin without being folded.

NEW ORDER

Our combat and hot weather trousers both have a similar pocket set up.
The upper front pockets are slanted to maximize safety and accessibility. The pockets on each side are reachable with both hands, so that it does not matter if the same side hand is occupied.
The zipper is closed downwards as this gives faster and safer handling and ensures that the slider does not end up under a hip belt when closed. They are reinforced in the bottom for longevity.

The leg pockets
The upper leg pockets are placed on front of the thigh, with an outer facing bellow. This reduces the pendular movement when running and makes it easy to reach their content. When in prone position, the content will be forced outwards towards the bellow and out of the way. The pockets features elastic inner compartments for organisation, these are placed a few centimeters above the bottom of the pocket to avoid content piling up in the pocket bottom.

The combat trousers have shin pockets with two compartment on each leg for medical gear. These also serve as leg protection when filled with first-aid. Carrying this in the shin pockets have several advantages, it saves valuable space in the combat vest and puts it close at hand when kneeling down to attend to a wounded.

FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT

The front zipper extends far down to make it easy to e.g. adjust any inner layers, to tuck in a shirt, to pee.

The combat and hot weather trousers both have full length zippers on the outside leg. There are three pullers making it possible to open the zipper in any section to ventilate.
It is for example very comfortable to open the zipper around the knee and upwards while marching in hot weather, and easy to close again while resting or at risk of battle. The upper Velcro flap is tucked away and secured by a loop patch when ventilating.
There are three Velcro flaps along the leg to regulate the leg width. These are also back up closures should the zipper break. The uppermost is mainly for back up closure and can also be tucked away and fastened when ventilating.

Our trousers are relatively tight in the lower part to minimize noise when moving, and with the Velcro flaps they can be made even tighter.
The knee pad pockets are twisted outwards on the leg while standing, when kneeling the trouser leg twists inwards and the pads are centered over the knee.
The seat has an extra layer of fabric for longevity.
There is an adjustable, elastic cord at the end of the leg, fitted with a hook that can be fastened in boots. This prevents the trousers from riding up, and a tightened cord keeps dirt, mud, water etc out of the boots.
The end of the elastic leg cord can be tucked away into a compartment inside the leg to keep it out of way.
All our pockets are sealed by zippers for safety. They are easily opened and closed and are in effect noiseless to handle.
