Winter mittens of the German Bundeswehr. The older, olive green model.

The traditional name for mittens is no-can-doo. But freezing your fingers isn't a good idea either: good luck pulling the trigger with a blue popsicle that once was your index finger. Let's not pretend these are Mechanix gloves, but they do a damn good job keeping your hands warm.

The shell of the gloves is made of durable nylon with leather reinforcements covering the palm, lined with fake fur. A waterproof membrane is hidden between the outer shell and fake fur. However, we can't give any promises regarding the membrane - these are used. Let's just say getting these wet in normal use is still quite a challenge.

Size system

Regular glove sizes. The sizes run large: these have enough space inside to stack in a pair of normal gloves. It's a good practice too: when you have to fine tune something, drop the mitten to hang from it's wrist loop and you still have something to protect your hands.

German army surplus

Used, but in good serviceable condition.

Lämpimät, mutteivat missään nimessä Intin noukkareiden lämpöiset ja veroiset talvikinttaat. Rannekuminauha on näiden hanskojen paras ominaisuus; pysyvät kinttaat koko ajan lähettyvillä, jos tarviikin sorminäppäryyttä. Kilisevät lenkit miinusta hämyisyyttä ajatellen. Kestävät ja hyvät, mutteivat tosiaan SA -vastaavien tasoiset talvikinttaat.

I own a pair of these that I purchased elsewhere. The fleece liners in mine had seen better days, so I carefully cut them out (along with the waterproof membrane). Then I waxed the cotton and leather of the mitten with Greenland wax. Now I have a nice pair of shell mittens into which I can slip any pair of wool mittens.

Mine seems to be unused and in supreme condition.
I ordered size 9 and they are spot on with just right amount of room for thinner wool gloves to wear underneath.
Seems to be very warm and durable, the adjustments are easily operated and work pretty well. Excellent mittens for the price!

I like these better than the flecktarn pattern. Awesome! Perfect midsize and weight mitts for a steal. You will not be dissatisfied for the price! Mine came like new (for surplus).

Parhaimmat rukkaset mitä olen omistanut ja vajaalla kympillä. Todella lämpimät ja kestävät.

These are great mittens! I received a pair that are brand new and have like a fleece type liner. I ordered a medium and if you plan on wearing a pair of wool glove liners in them you may want to go up one size to be safe, just my opinion. You can not go wrong with these mittens!

I got the light grey leather version, with a fleece lining. I typically wear a medium glove, but bought these in L to accommodate my Särmä merino gloves. A roomy fit, I’m happy with them!

My pair appeared almost new.

Very Warm mitts, came basically factory new (Only smelled a bit funny from the warehouse storage). Have tried them out to -20 C with liner gloves and didnt freeze at all.
For the price it's an amzing pair of mitts.
