British winter mittens, DPM, surplus
For arctic operations there's no such thing as overkill when it comes to insulation. If you live above 60th parallel north or in the inlands, chances are you'll see weather where these are necessary.
The set consists of a wool pile liner and waterproof MVP shell, which can be separated for easy repairs and fast drying. The pile liner is stingy and itchy, so if you have sensitive skin some kind of liner gloves are strongly recommended.
The full set would consist of three parts, but the inner mittens are not included with these:
- Wool Pile Liner - NSN# 8415-99-869-3509
Mittens, Inner, ECW - NSN# 8415-99-869-3506
- Mittens, Outer, ECW - NSN# 8415-869-3503
Material and care
It's best to just hand-wash these with a mild detergent. The outer mittens require spray treatment from time to time to repel water, but most of the time it will be dry when you wear these.
Used, but in good condition.
