Features

The designer of these gloves must be extra-terrestrial. They are that cosmic. The advanced four-finger design enables you to wiggle your fingers to some extent and give the finger to the West-german motorists, who couldn’t return it with their pitiful leather mittens. When you put these on, you are first bewildered, then disbelief creeps in. Fingers were not meant to be separated in this abnormal Lovecraftian fashion. Thus begins your journey beyond the realms of sanity.

Because these were made for motorcycling, they are windproof and water-resistant. Made from incredible dederon/leather/wool combo that is tough like the Berlin Wall in its heyday. They sure knew how to make good stuff in that more democratic Germany! The price is also nice, so you can buy several pairs in case you lose a glove or grow an extra pair of tentac… arms.

The camouflage pattern is the East German Strichtarn, the most Art Deco of all camos. Perfect for acid rain, for instance.

Use

If you don't feel like playing a lobsterman from outer space or arresting the enemies of the state with your Zündapp, these are quite nice for outdoor cooking as well. You can pick up hot pans and pots without melting the palm of the glove into your hand.

Size info

These are made in three sizes: 1, 2, and 3, i.e. small, medium, and large. This time we only managed to get the number 3, which is the largest. These aren't mega huge though so no need to be a cave troll to wear these. If you normally wear Large gloves, these are perfect.

Condition

When the red dream died, loads of cool stuff was abandoned in gloomy Cold War bunkers to wait for the new dawn. These gloves are from one of those places. Unissued DDR goodies. So, no signs of use, only some very light dry old surface mildew and other possible signs of long storage. Nothing a moist rag can't handle.

Hanskojen kosminen nelisormirakenne on todella pähee. Hanskat haisevat homeiselle varastolle ja nahassa on valkoista ulkoavaruuden tomua pienimäärä. Parin toinen hanska on tehty todella jäykästä rutisevasta materiasta kukaan ei tiedä mitä se sisältää arvoitukseen ei tällä teknologian kehitys tahdilla tulla saamaan vastausta vielä pitkään aikaan

Thick as oven mitts, aggressively strong, and fit well. Oh, and they don't smell at all because they are unissued. Great if you want freaky alien gloves that will withstand Fimbulvetr.

Ei näitä voi oikeesti käyttää missään järkevästi, testasin moottorpyöräilessä, joo piti tuulta hyvin mut ei näihin kädet totu oikeesti varmaan ikinä :D Ei näitä kukaan vapaaehtosesti halua kädessä pitää kauempaa kun on tarvis. Hyvää materiaalia nää on mut taidampa itekki jättää nää grillaus käyttöön.

Jos vihaat jotain ihmistä oikein paljon, niin tässä hyvä lahjaidea

Strichtarn (Type 2)!
Great gauntlets but the large is more of a medium.
No matter: once my ‘Innsmouth Look’ progresses they should fit perfectly.
See you at NecronomiCon!
