Description of the Product

Every warrior needs practical and sturdy pants to withstand the rigors of combat. These Viking-Era pants are made of durable 100% linen to hold up years in active reenactment use. These knickerbocker-style pants are narrow and tight-fitting below your knee and wide and airy upwards from the knee. This allows a unique look with free leg movement.

This style pants are normally wrapped with leg bindings or tucked inside high boots below the knee. The leg bindings/wrappings kept the trousers clean, dry and in good shape and naturally also gave the lower leg some additional protection both when walking in the wild as in combat. You start wrapping your lower leg below instep or heel or around your ankle and stop at the knee. Windings are not included with the trousers. You can choose windings separately to suit your style from our selection.

We don't have too many original Viking Era pants surviving till our times but it's commonly thought that this style pants were especially common amongst the Rus Vikings/Varangians that sailed, conquered and traded along the eastern river routes from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea. These river routes through modern day Russia and Eastern Europe are called the trade route from the Varangians to the Greeks.

Flax is one of the oldest plants people have been cultivating and directions for linen textile manufacture has been found on 4000 year old Egyptian wall paintings. Linen was one of the most important textile plants in middle age Europe. Linen has been cultivated for example in the northernmost Europe from the Bronze Age onward.

These linen pants are high quality local hand work. Material is sturdy 100% linen and the textile has been washed (pre-shrunk) before sewing. Pants can be washed in warm 40 degrees (Celcius) machine wash. The waist can be fastened with a drawstring. The waist is wide on purpose as it makes part of the style when you tighten it with the drawstring.

Available in sizes: S, M, L and XL.
