The US Military Extreme Cold Weather Mitten Set is just what you need for beating the cold. With an area of operations that includes the frozen arctic, the US military designed this mitten set to give soldiers the most effective pair of mittens to ensure success on the battle field when the weather was challenging. You will quickly appreciate how well these mittens were designed when you wear them the first time in the cold.
With the design of these mittens being a layered approach, you will have complete flexibility to address the cold based on your own individual needs. You can wear your favorite pair of gloves and use these mittens as an extreme cold weather outer layer, or you can use these mittens on their own. The quilted snap in liner on these mittens will keep your hands warm with the outer shell blocking both the cold and wind. The palms are made from deer skin leather with the backing being 100% wool that can be used to warm your cheeks and face from the cold.

They are large for medium BUT don't be fooled into thinking they are one size fits all. I wear XL in gloves and have long fingers and these are actually a little small on me. I can't wear anything under them and even by themselves don't fit real well. They do seem really nice and really warm and are probably great for anybody with small, medium, or large hands - just not extra large. Will be keeping these but they are a lot of money for a not so good fit. I wanted to write a review just to make sure that they are not to be considered "one size fits all", otherwise they can't be beat!
These are well built very large mittens! The cuff comes halfway up my forearm. Condition is new, un-issued. A sticker on the box is dated 1985. I am 6'2" 210 lbs with large hands. I can easily wear these mittens with a pair of wool mittens I bought here at KS with room to spare.
The ultimate glove for running snowblowers or snowmobile. Don't be concerned over the size "medium", I have large hands and these mittens have enough room to fit an extra large hand in a flight glove ...And then some. All I need is some snow to confirm what I already know, another great product from KeepShooting.com!
I bought 4 pair of these mittens - medium. Leather palm is smooth and flexible and outer side is soft. I usually wear Men's medium. These mittens are large enough that I can wear a liner glove inside comfortably. Great gloves when it is -5 degrees. I also have expensive ski mittens. These gloves work as well, are more flexible, and cost a lot less. The medium also fit my son's larger hands.
