This is a replica of the M-1951 arctic trousers shell. The M-1951 arctic trouser ensemble is made up of a shell and a detachable mohair frieze liner that is attached inside the shell. It was paired with the famous M-1951 Parka.
Our M-1951 arctic trouser shell is 50% cotton and 50% nylon. Its fabric is not waterproof—excellent air permeability, more suitable for spring and summer wear. The pockets of the original version have no pocket cloth and cannot store things. We have added pocket cloth to retain the storage function like regular pants.
We restored the detail of the original as much as possible, such as two side open hand pockets, a right hip pocket with a flap, leg cargo pockets with a flap and tie (all having snap closures), straps at the bottom of the crotch, ankle and the waist tightener, internal buttons for attaching the liner.
In order to best determine fit, it may be helpful to compare our garment’s measurements to a similar garment you already own. Lay your garment on a flat surface and take all measurements from the outside of the garment.

When I saw these pants online I had some hope/feeling that they might be my favorite pair of pants. They were even before I tried them on. I live in the high desert, it's hot much of the time. The weight of the material is perfect for nine months a year here . . . not quite sure what I'll do for the other three months . . . maybe take a look at your catalog one more time
These pants are amazing, the wide leg fit is absolutely perfect. Great for a casual outfit or a intense hike (in style)
We like the shell and they are very well made, however, the price has gone up so high we will not be able to buy any more.
so nice i might have to cop another pair. they’ve easily become my top 3 pairs of pants. 10/10 recommend.
The waist runs huge
As a top layer in 0 degrees over a 4 day camp high in the New England Granite country the M-51 over pants provided a great wind break worn over my P-44 and long underwear. Super comfortable. Removed the drawstrings and replaced those with elastic inside the cuff, the pants are going to be an awesome all round pair to wear summer and winter. For the price really how could you say no?
