East German Grey Wool Service Pants

The East German Grey Wool Service Pants are a pair of wool pants that were issued to soldiers in the former East German army. Made from wool, these pants are easily recognized as East German NVA pants by the shade of grey they were dyed during the construction process. With East German Army gear having a well deserved reputation for quality, these wool pants might just be the deal of the century.

The East German Grey Wool Service Pants are an excellent deal, quite possibly one of the best we've had for awhile. Made from wool for soldiers in the former East German Army, the wool fabric alone is worth more than the $3.50 we charge for the pants. If that wasn't enough of a reason to buy a pair, look at how nice they are and consider them for everything from costumes to theater work.

  • Sized so you can select a pair that will fit you best - No more luck of the draw with surplus sizing with us.
  • East German Issued Pants - NVA items are becoming harder to find, these pants are a great example of why as NVA gear is top quality
  • Elastic waistband with buttons to get a better fit for you, tailored to your waist
  • Button fly with East German Grey buttons
  • Sateen lined crotch for comfort
  • Two front hand warming pockets
  • Two rear button closing pockets

High quality
Review by Richard
These are great pants for cool weather. Very comfortable and well made. I ordered a size too large , so I needed some Taylor's work. Even with the additional cost these are a great value. They will last and last.

Fantastic deal
Review by Brian
These are going to be my woods tramping pants! I have been looking for good wool pants for awhile but could never swallow the price, then I stumbled across these and thought why not. I am 6'4 and wear size 34x34 jeans. These G48s fit almost perfect, even on my long legs. They are a little snug up top so I can't button the top button, but with belt or suspenders are still useable. I will be adding piping to gusset them for a more proper fit for me. Great piece of gear for a great price!

Nice and warm, can't beat price
Review by W. Crow
Not available at the moment in my size, but I got these as a gift for a friend. Great value at the current price! I do have these same pants from a past purchase and the have held up well through many gentle, cold water washings, and air drying. Great without long underwear in spring and fall, but an additional layer over or under is necessary in Ohio winter weather.
If your size is not available, consider getting a pair, cutting off the legs attaching tie cords and using them as either liners or over top of other pants for additional insulation. Cheaper than buying wool fabric and making the liners!

Basically new!
Review by Kyle
I ordered two pairs, that way I could have a pair to keep warm while winter camping, and a pair to keep nice for dress occasions. They really are that nice of pants.

I ordered k48 size, I wear a 34 pant and 30 leg.
I received a k48-0 and a k48-1.

The k48-0 was a 28 inch waist. They promptly sent me out another k48-1 as a replacement.

Couldn't be happier!

Fantastic value!!!
Review by ralph
Well finished, moderately thick 100% wool , three hooks for braces, single, flapped and buttoned rear pocket, appear to be dress trousers. I wear size 35-36" waist, 32"inseam, purchased the sg-48 size, and they are almost a perfect fit. Will keep you warm and in style for less than the price of a latte. Considering getting another pair. Need some airing out because of storage odor, but otherwise as described, unissued. fantastic value!
