Description Sizing Information
 
Reproduction WWII Waffen SS winter trousers, reversible from oakleaf A pattern camouflage to white. These are the 2nd pattern of Winterhose, made in 1944-45, with knee reinforcements and a storm flap over the fly. The shell fabric is 100% cotton. The lining is high quality polar fleece which has the same weight and feel as the Reizwolle (recycled wool) lining of the originals- while also being warmer, less prone to shrinkage, and 1/2 the cost. These trousers feature pebbled buttons, ankle ties, waist tie, overlapping fly, and detachable suspenders. Machine washable. Shrinkage is 1".

Color:
There is a shade difference between some trousers and parkas. There were two printings of oakleaf and one is less red than the other- thus we cannot guarantee a perfect match between different garments. If this is unacceptable, then you will have to find another product. From a historical perspective, original parkas and trousers practically never match.

Imported


Sizing Notes:
1. We copied the original sizing system exactly. The Germans designed these to be worn over several layers of clothing, and thus they are already oversized to allow for this!
2. These are designed to be worn higher than most trousers in order to insulate the body. The top will ride above the navel. If you have a large belly, measure around your middle rather than using your trouser waist size.
3. All inseams are 28". (Same as originals.)

The weak point-
There is one inherent design flaw on these trousers- the attachment point for the suspenders. On nearly all well used originals, one finds resewn buttons and plugs of material missing where the tension from the suspenders ripped the buttons out. The 1944 pattern Heer trousers finally addressed this with belt loops and suspenders being attached via wooden toggles reinforced with strips of extra fabric. I considered this option, but since this was only seen on late, non-reversible Heer trousers I opted not to. We did add an extra set of buttons at the front (4 instead of 2) as a back up. However, the best option to permanently fix this is to sew on a patch of fabric for reinforcement, then hand sew the button on with cord.
