The British Army Mittens are serving on the front lines of Europe. Worn by British Royal Marines in extreme cold weather environments, these mittens are designed to keep the cold out and the warmth in. Featuring the world recognized British Woodland DPM pattern camouflage along with leather lined palms, you'll find your grip is firm and your hands warm while wearing these excellent mittens.
Officially known as "Mittens, Inner, Extreme Cold Weather" in the British Army, we like to refer to these as simply British Army mittens. We have tested them in the cold weather of Pennsylvania and found them to be better than any commercial grade mitten. Each mitten has an elastic area that falls just below your wrist to keep the cold and wind out of the mittens along with a rip-stop material that extends another six inches. This extra six inches provides for coverage of your forearms and there is a draw string closure system to keep this additional area snug against your arm.

Impulse buy satisfied. Jus a light scotch guard to up water/ snow repellent. A great buy and product refer to my friends
Got these to wear over some very light but delicate down mittens that I was afraid wouldn't standup to my work conditions. These have performed excellently and I can recommend them highly!.
These mittens are in great shape condition even though they have been issued, no worries there. These will be worn as a stand alone or when very cold add a pair of the many wool liners Keepshooting offers to bring the insulation up. Good ripstop material with the British Dpm camo. Very good quality leather palms and soft for ease of movement. Grab a pair.
I bought large, they are huge but have very functional straps on them to cinch them up. They are very light compared to the US stuff and feel waterproof, they also have grippy tread on them to get you from dropping stuff,when rolled up they take almost no room and would be great to have over any pair of gloves to keep them warm and dry until you need to do more intricate tasks. Look brand new and will put with my Goretex jacket and pants. Thanks again KS. Now waiting for more three piece sets I dropped the ball on before, I now realize how stupid that was of me. Very old quality or the weight.
