The M51 cold weather clothing system might be a bit old, but the years have treated it reasonably well. These are the cold weather mittens of the said system, meant to be used or not used with woolen liner gloves, depending on the temperature. Additionally the mitten has a separate trigger finger, which is a nice thing to have even if you're not intending to shoot someone.

This does not fit like a glove - it's meant to be a shell to offer some warmth and protection from the elements. Made of thick cotton, with proper work glove leather on the palm. The wide mouth features a light elastic strap inside it for a more secure fit, a cotton reinforcement for easing donning, and cord loops to keep the gloves with you, because soldiers are like kids; they just loose everything that's not permanenty attached.

You can pull all your fingers inside together if it's really cold, or stick your thumb and forefinger to the slots reserved for them.

Size info

The sizes are a bit vague on purpose, as these are pretty generous - they are meant to be just a shell over everything else!


Used, but very serviceable. Fortunately these aren't delicate and meant for rough use.

Army surplus

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.
