View Guide

We recommend using tailors tape to record your measurements. When measuring your chest, remember to breathe normally; do not measure your chest at the extremes of inflation or deflation.


Height
True to size. If you are between heights, follow your personal preference.

Chest/Waist
True to size. To accommodate layering and preserve mobility, we recommend going with your exact size, or if you are between sizes, sizing up.

How to pick your size
For Gorka complete suits, you'll pick your chest size, and the waist size paired with it is automatic. The chart below shows how we pair up the suits.

If you are getting Gorka pieces separately, simply measure your chest for the jacket, and your waist for the pants. 

Please note: For full Gorka suits, the pants are extremely elastic at the waist. There's plenty of wiggle room up and down so in a vast majority of cases, they will fit as long as you pick the right jacket.

The Story Of (Our) Gorka

A brief history of Russia's iconic mountain suit, why we re-imagined it,
and it's turbulent journey to the USA.
Read The Article 📚

Making The K2

How we modified our mountain suit to make it fit & perform like it should in the 2020s.

Gorka K2 Trousers: Slav Squat Approved

Modern Cut, Modern Fit

Original Gorkas typically featured a high waist and single-seam crotch. It performed as good as it looked — like a potato sack.

We added an extra large diamond shape gusset that goes down to the knee, and lowered the rise to sit comfortably below the navel for a contemporary, high-mobility fit.

It looks and feels good even in the deepest slav squats.

Suspenders

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Gorkas had an excellent original suspender design, but we upgraded the materials significantly with modern elastic and ripstop.

It retains it's original function with superb support and stays out of the way of your chest for all day comfort.

All About Stretch

The waistband is incredibly stretchy. Even when you add or remove layers, your pants will accommodate.

We've also added extra elastic cuffs in the lower leg to remove snag hazards while retaining mobility.

Lastly, we've added leg stirrups and an inner gaiter seen in other types of Gorkas to keep the pant legs uniform around your footwear.

Hard-Wearing Reinforcement

Large & Flexible TPU buttons mounted slot-style on the fly & pockets are practically unbreakable.

Thanks to their mounting, they're less prone to snapping off, and have the ability to slide up and down for even more flexibility.

Pockets feature flaps with covered buttons to stay snag free.

Beltline Improvements

The K2 trousers keep the traditional buttoned fly, but feature upgraded slot-mounted TPU buttons for long-term durability.

The belt loops are all 2", reinforced with ample bar-tacking to handle heavy belts & two-piece shooter's belts.

Gorka K2 Jacket: Classic Style, Modernized Features

'Owl Neck' Hood


We've reworked the seam structure and size of the hood to accommodate a full range of motion.

It twists along with your head, and easily adjusts to your head using two shock cords.

The brim on Original Gorkas was flimsy, so we stiffened it to work as it should.

Heavier Than Heavy Duty.

Large & Flexible TPU buttons on the fly & pockets are practically unbreakable.

We used "Slot Style" mounting so they are less prone to snapping off, and have the ability to slide up and down for even more flexibility.

Our jacket also features a dual heavy duty luggage zipper.

All About Stretch

Two bands of elastic at the forearms slims down the jacket without restricting movement.

Shock cord adjustments at the waist and torso refine your fit even further, unlike the original Gorka's single drawstring waist.

Shock cord at the waist is kept out of the way with a keeper, ensuring you stay snag free.

Flex Your Biceps

The bicep pockets now feature a surface to place your favorite velcro patches.

Under-arm mesh venting keeps you cool in changing weather conditions.

Materials Matter

A Closer look at the construction of the K2

Durable NYCO Ripstop

Ripstop does as the name implies — It stops rips & tears dead in their tracks.

It's grid pattern aids in keeping damage contained, makes field repairs easier and greatly increases longevity of the suits.

"NYCO" means that the fabric has a blend of Nylon and Cotton — a perfect balance of durability and breathability.

Flexible TPU

TPU Hardware doesn't crack or shatter like traditional plastic buttons, and doesn't wear out over time like a metal snap would.

Thermoplastic Poly-Urethane Is known for its ability to resist abrasion, oils & grease, and it's excellent flexibility.

It makes for fantastic fastening hardware, and we used it all over our Gorka.

Bonded Thread

We specifically picked a high-strength bonded nylon to stitch the whole suit together.

"Bonded" describes the process of chemically treating the twisted yarn together prior to it's final "winding", resulting in high UV, Abrasion, and mildew resistance.

It's commonly used in heavy-duty applications on denim & leather products, and will hold up to all kinds of abuse on our Gorka.

From Russia, With Love

What Makes This Run Of Gorkas Extra-Special

This batch of Gorkas (made in 2020) will very likely be the last of their kind.

Due to the disruption in manufacturing during the COVID-19 Pandemic and the war in Ukraine, getting Gorkas to the USA was almost impossible. Almost.

Genuine Russian goods simply aren't making it out of Russia anymore, especially not to the USA.

Do a little math and you might realize how long it took us to produce them during a pandemic, and sneak them out of a country we're at proxy-war with.

But we never gave up. And boy, were these worth the wait.

We simply couldn't let Gorkas die at the hands of a few regulations and sanctions here and there. We had our ways, and a customer base that stuck with us for the entire rollercoaster.

If you're one of those people, thank you. We love you.

We spent ages jumping through every imaginable hoop to make sure Gorkas would get here in one piece, Cold War 2.0 or not.

And the work paid off. We ended up with the best outcome possible: A truly Russian-Made Gorka with no corners cut.

We can say it with absolute confidence: These are one-of-a-kind. And they're the best Gorkas in the whole world.

Great Suit

It is very comfortable and looks great. The fabric is warmer than I expected but is more robust. The fit is stretchy but still trim in places, it does move with you. I feel very fortunuate to get these one of a kind suits, Kommando did a great job in designing them.
