How can you make a pair of cheap yet actually good all-round gloves for a large amount of troops? The British answer is quite genius.

These are damn simple, knitted from fire retardant aramid fibers and fitted with numerous small rubber dots on the palms and fingers. The fit is snug and good for fine tasks such as handling a rifle, fire retardancy is a must these days and the rubber dots give the grip you need to safely handle gear and tools. And best of all these are damn cheap!

All in all these are like gardening gloves on steroids. The fire retardancy means that even if you manage to burn the fabric, it won't melt on your skin.

Size info

These are larger than you would think from the number alone. We think these were made according to an old European system. Content warning: French bullshit.

You see, the French also had inches in their time, but they were not like the 100% Proudly Preserved in The United States inches, oh no. The French ruled most of Western Europe back in the day and their king Charlemagne had such a large foot that dividing it into 12 parts resulted in a 2.71 cm inch, rather than a 2.54 cm inch as we know Americans to use to this day.

Condition

Used military surplus, but still in perfectly serviceable condition. The worst sign of wear is probably that some of the rubber dots have worn off, oh no how terrible.

Onpa kyldyyriteko! Nää on ihan villasormikkaiden, nyppylähanskojen ja kaiken kylmällä kelillä puljaamisen parhautta. Hyvä kun toitte myyntiin. Hanskoina siis vitun simppelit. Jokasella taistelijalla pitäisi olla pari näitä varalla.

Vallan mainiot pikkupakkasella eivätkä häiritse autolla ajaessakaan.

The fingers are a bit long for my stubby hands. But the quality is nice, and my pair has absolutely no signs of use.

Excellent, especially for the price. Some gloves fit well and some don't, these do for me! Most excellent if you want to maintain some dexterity and grip, but still need a fairly warm glove that isn't too thick. I am 6' 175 with average paws I would say. I got one L and one XL, both fit fine. I think these really form to your hand better than a lot of gloves. These came in new condition and are awesome, I can see another couple pair in my closet soon.

Erinomaisen oloiset sormikkaat. Eivät niin lämpimät kuin merinovillaiset, mutta varmasti kestävämmät. Juuri sopivat kevätkäyttöön. Koot ovat hieman ongelmaisia, ensin tilasin L/XL-kokoa ja siinä sormet ovat aavistuksen pitkät. Noh, tilasin itselleni toiset kokoa M ja siinäpä taas sormet ovat aavistuksen lyhyet. Olisko niin, että ekat ovat kokoa XL (lappu oli leikattu irti), jolloin L olisi itselleni sopiva. Tai sitten pitää käydä Virossa sormien pidennyksessä.

Great value for the money. Standard fit for me. The rubber dots are quite hard and not as grippy as expected but still OK.

They fit a bit large, but they do the job for a thin, grippy glove and they're cheap.
Order a size down unless you have very long fingers.
