Swedish Wool Trigger Finger Mittens
Out of stock
The Swedish Wool Trigger Finger Mittens are a great example of the Swedish Army fielding innovating gear. When you have a country that has portions of territory extending past the Arctic Circle you have to think creatively when solving problems dealing with the cold. With the Swedish Army, they had problems with soldiers hands getting too cold while carrying their rifles.
This problem was solved by these wool trigger finger mittens, which allowed soldiers to keep their hands warm while also being able to quickly fire their rifles when necessary. There is no need to remove the gloves to fire, there is a small opening that will allow you to quickly extend your trigger finger to fire your rifle or handgun.

I shall definitely get another pair just because I like them that much!
Being in the southeastern U.S., I've never owned a pair of mittens because it usually isn't that cold. These are well made from the looks of it, but I had to get used to the boxy shape rather than form-fit of the mittens compared to gloves. Almost seems like a thick sock with thumb sections. However, they do seem very warm and I haven't had trouble with sliding a finger out of the gap on the side, so I might not miss the extra dexterity as long as I'm not trying to tie things together or handle very small things.
