Well·en·brech·er from the German wellen 'wave' and brecher 'breaker'


Each Wellenbrecher starts life as a German desert camouflage field shirt. Similar in cut and overall design to their Flecktarn cousins, these Tropentarn shirts incorporate large armpit vents, and a light weight, three-color fabric.

Wellenbrecher's unique coloration results from a special dying process applied to each Tropentarn donor shirt. Unlike standard "over-dying" we use a reactive dye which only binds to cotton fibers. This leaves all nylon undyed––from the arm vents and hook and loop to the nylon fibers in the body of the shirt itself.

Wellenbrecher's slightly iridescent blue-gray appearance is color fast, and will not leach or fade. Post dying, your shirt is clear of residual chemicals and clean enough to put in a baby's mouth.

This field shirt can be worn in two different configurations. For a standard "shirt" cut we suggest ordering your Gr. size as shown in the sizing chart. For a "jacket" like fit go up one height bracket in the sizing chart while keeping your chest size true to measurement.

Delivery Time:

Wellenbrecher shirts will be in shipping the week of August 20th, after which they will be a normal in stock ready-to-ship product. There is no wave three planned at this time, as we do not have access to any more Tropentarn at the moment.

Specs:

  • Wellenbrecher wave 2 mission patch
  • Tough poly/cotton water-resistant fabric.
  • Snap-secured storm flap.
  • Two snap-secured front breast pockets.
  • Shoulder passants for epaulets, rank tabs, or pack straps.
  • Mesh ventilated armpits.
  • Shoulder pocket on left arm.
  • Velcro® wrist fasteners.
  • Velcro® fastener on right arm.
  • Velcro® fastener above left front pocket for name tape. 

Color Bias:

The color of the tan in the Tropentarn affects the dye result. Not all Tropentarn jackets are the same. There is roughly a 10% difference in color. Ranging from light khaki to a more yellow sand. This base color effects the Wellenbrecher dye result. You can compare the photos below to get an idea of what to expect. We can make no promises to as to the hue you will receive.


Condition:

We have sorted all of our donor jackets carefully. Expect a clean, quality product with no damage.

Nice shirt

Good condition shirt, very nice colour. Does not leach, just as advertised, but some uneven colour here and there.

Good field shirt

The shirt fits well without being too constricting, material seems durable, and there plenty of pockets for holding things. Would work excellent as an innawoods shirt, or as a casual light jacket to wear over a t-shirt for that T E R R O R W A V E aesthetic.

Fantastic Shirt/Light Jacket

I wear this as a light outer jacket over a t-shirt or a sweatshirt and it's great. The build and fit are fantastic, and the dye job really makes the piece unique without being obnoxious.

It's an odd colored jacket

It's a jacket that will keep sand, dirt, sun, foliage, blood, feces and small amounts of water off of your skin. It also looks cool.

Pretty good

Light weight, breathable, and looks great. Maybe should have gone for one size up because I think it would look better if it were about an inch or two longer. Still a great product.
