The Swedish M90 System is one of the most proven cold weather system in the world. With the Swedish military relying heavily on the M90 during operations above the Arctic Circle you know the M90 means serious warmth. We have imported and sold the M90 Parka for many years and now we are able to offer the Swedish M90 Cold Weather Pants which go great with the M90 parka.
Swedish military designers really created one of the most versatile insulated cold weather pants with the M90. Addressing the chief concern with pants, there is a brilliant method to deal with size differences. The Swedes used a large elastic waistband on the M90 pants allowing the waistband to stretch up several sizes should the soldier be wearing additional gear on his belt. When no gear is being worn, the M90 pants have a flap that connects to a button on each side of the M90 waist area that prevents the elastic waistband from stretching. With this system you will achieve a fit with these pants that is contoured to your body which will help with both comfort and warmth.
Most insulated cold weather pants are difficult to put on due to their design. The Swedish made this a non-issue by designing the M90 pants with a full length zipper on both legs that runs from the waistband to the ankles. Once you are ready to put on the pants, simply unzip to a comfortable level and step into them. You then zip up the pants so that the zipper comes back up to the waistband. You will find these insulated pants are the quickest and easiest insulated pants to put on and take off. With the insulation being done in a generous but not overly done layout, you will not feel the usual "puffed out" feeling that most insulated pants have.

I was too fat ,so I cut the waistband and they fit perfectly! In PA it was cold and I never felt warmer wearing these pants and underneath I fit a pair of Woolrich wool hunting pants! I would highly recommend these arctic trousers four survival!
I have a number of reasons for liking these, but most germane to others is the fact that these are really warm and easy to use and hard to find in sizes that fit. I'm 6'-2" and about 195 with a 35 waist; these go over heavy wool pants. It's not like I vacation in the Boreal forest very often, but for outdoor activities in deep winter, when you cease to be active, you need all the help you can get. That includes sitting in a tree stand, after cross country skiing, after winter surfing (New England edition) or out in the middle of nowhere when the sun goes down and the wind picks up. In winter, these and the companion coat stay in the back of the SUV. For winter kit, the Swedes really know their stuff.
I ordered 180/85. I am 6'3', approx 190 lbs. Length is PERFECT without boots. Waist is perfect ( I take 34-36" waist, depending.).
I have been looking for pants like this. OMG, they go on SO easily over pants, OR my flannel-lined cargo pants. These are so easy to put on and take off, it's ridiculous. I will love wearing thsese with my N3B snorkel parka. I will no longer be cold, and my old-man legs thank you !
