US M-1943 mitten liners, wool, olive, surplus
Real vintage - 1940's model American wool mittens. Mostly made of a blend of wool and nylon. These have been made for a long time, these gloves looked mostly like 70-80's manufacture.
Just like any old mittens, but these have the added benefit of a separate trigger finger, making operating weapons and other fiddly jobs a lot easier. Pull all fingers inside the big compartment to keep the forefinger warmer too. The perfect companion for the vintage-inspired outdoorsman. Of course the US Army advises us not to use these much without the liner, but anyone with half brain knows how wool mittens work.
Materials and care
Mostly made of a blend of 75% wool and 25% nylon. Wash as wool: 30 degrees Celsius with a gentle wool cycle, drip dry. Use of wool care products recommended!
These are cut rather big, by picking your size you'll have plenty of room inside. Pick by gut feeling and you're OK.
Proper ol' surplus
This is the real deal. Used, sometimes dusty and with a lovely smell of something old made of wool. The colours vary a bit but all are "green".

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
