A proper ol' pair of mittens, these old Swiss army gauntlets are made of thick curiously textured cotton which you would be hard pressed to find today even with all kinds of Poirots and Sherlocks combined. The lining is ridiculously comfy flannel and the condition completely unissued. Made large enough to fit wool gloves underneath. Apparently meant originally as protective gloves for rocket launcher operator, these work well as regular gauntlets too.

Complete with superb adjustment straps, long length and button & tab to pair them together. Swiss army stuff generally is very very high quality and these are definitely no exception, and for this price they are a genuine steal to anyone looking for a pair of old timey mittens. Hell, buy an extra pair if you manage lose one.

One size fits all.

Condition

The mittens we received haven't been used at all, judging from the pristine shape. Just stored for decades. They probably made these from the 50's til the 80's or something. No idea how long these will be available, the same story like with most surplus - we might be able to keep them in stock for five years, or one month.

These ones were used to protect the shooter from burns using the Raketenrohr 80 (8.3 cm Rak Rohr 80).
Search for "RL-83 Blindicide" to find a picture seeing the shooter using these.

Muuten hyvät, mutta jos on XXL kädet niin ovat vähän pienet ja alle ei taatusti mahdu mitään. XXXL käsiin eivät mahdu ollenkaan.

Funky high quality surplus! Good as mittens (if you want them warmer put a liner inside) or you could use them as super cool oven mitts!

Toimiiko patalappuina? ...toimii! Tulikuumaa uunipeltiä pidellessä kyllä ne päästää lämpöä vähän nopeammin läpi kuin IKEAn virallinen triplasti paksumpi uunitumppu, mutta käsittelynäppäryys on ihan omaa luokkaansa. Ja lisäksi: kukapa meistä ei olisi joskus ottanut vähän liian leveää otetta kanavatia/kakkumuottia kurkotellessaan ja kärventänyt käsivarttaan uuniluukun reunaan? Suojaa siltäkin!

Comfy and straightforward for the price. These aren't super high tech gore-tex mittens, but they are perfect for shoveling snow, emergency kits or walking the dog in the chilly weather.

For the really cold days, they are roomy enough to use the ultra affordable Swiss wool gloves sold here as a decent liner. They are both very well made.

Great mittens! They are in beautiful condition! I purchased wool gloves also to wear inside these for added warmth for cross country skiing or Using the snow blower for clearing the driveway.Very happy with the purchase!

True to size, well made, light but warm. These also fold up well and take up little space, similar to a good Russian wool blanket. Would be great under larger mitten or mitten shells. These are not sexiest gloves around, but for the money, they are simply a steal. Mine came like new with no wear. These will outlast you.

These things are HUGE and wonderful. Put a pair of "thin" gloves underneath and throw these bad boys over your gloves and cover the end of your jacket sleeve for good measure. Plan on buying a few more to store away in random places.

Nice and big mittens. A little on the thin side, but a nice and comfortable lining. Would be perfect with some wool mittens/gloves under these mittnes.
Also, they look great! Quite nice value for the money.

Plussaa eritoten pitkästä varresta. Aivan yhtä lämpimäthän nämä eivät tosin ole kuin vuoratut nahkalapaset, mutta hintaansa nähden aika buenot. Suosittelen käsittelemään nämä rukkaset vettähylkiviksi, sillä muuten tuppaavat aktiivisessa talvikäytössä kastumaan. Toinen vaihtoehto on laittaa näiden päälle vettä paremmin hylkivät tumppuset, kuten vaikka ne Suomen armeijan nahkaiset ja valtavat patalaput.

They remove most of your motor skills while wearing them, but they will keep you warm. They look kind of goofy, but they will keep you warm. They are also old fashioned, from when the clothes were designed to keep you warm.
