The M65 cold weather clothing system might be a bit old, but the years have treated it 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 50/50% cotton and nylon, with light padding on the back and 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.

The US Army says these are warmer than the liners (!). Additionally 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. It's advised to use the trigger finger feature only if necessary!

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!

Condition

Sometimes used, very serviceable at the least. Fortunately these aren't delicate and meant for rough use.

Jenkkiarmeija taitaa kyllä sanoa, että nämä ovat lämpimämmät kuin armeijan nahkahanskat (gloves), ei tumput (mittens). Mutta asiaan - tämä on aika hyvä kuorihanska kylmille tai muuten paskoille ilmoille, käytti sisällä sitten sarjaan kuuluvia tumppuja tai muita sopivia käsineitä. Aluskäsineen kuitenkin tarvitsee, sellaisinaan näitä voi käyttää lähinnä plussakeleillä, koska vuorausta on vain vähän kämmenselän puolella, muuten nämä ovat vain kangasta ja ohutta nahkaa.



Minulla on entuudestaan Sveitsin armeijan vähän vastaavat vuorelliset rukkaset, mutta niihin verrattuna sanoisin, että nämä ovat paremmat - koska kyse on vain kuoresta, nämä on helpompi vetää käteen ja riisua (sveitsiläinen on tosi ikävä kiskoa käteen toinen rukkanen jo kädessä ja lisäksi se ei meinaa mennä millään takin hihan päälle tai alle ja jos kädessä on toinen käsine, se ottaa sisävuoraukseen kiinni).
