Russian combat mittens, Digiflora, surplus
A pair of veeery proper combat mittens of the Russian army. Superbly warm, very lightweight and open up in the middle for some sweet trigger finger action. Unissued stuff.
In the 2000's in the Russian army they redid the whole palette according to Putin's macho fantasies. This meant a thorough modernization process, at least on the paper. Bu as you can see, something hasn't changed, as their issue kit is now on sale in some Finnish army store. Has anything changed after all? Enough with the philosophing, let's talk about mittens!
The top material is thin but extremely dense nylon fabric, the same stuff as used in Digiflora winter stuff. The fabric is pretty much windproof and very water resistant. There's a fixed lining of polyester batting on the inside. The whole palm is made of stronger nylon stuff and folds up over the back of the palm if you need to do some fiddly stuff, like fire a weapon.
There's also a fixed liner mitten made of comfy fleece, which has a separate trigger finger. This modular solution is pretty smart, as some air between layers will increase the insulation effect.
Two sizes, pick the one you usually go with and you'll be happy.
