Vintage Extreme Weather Mittens
November 25, 2010
[$30 postpaid USA.]
US Military Surplus -- VG Condition (some fading of fabric color)
They are marked Medium but they all fit my 9"-around palm, which is Med-Large. Some are even bigger and would easily fit a 9.5" hand. I have a couple pairs of approx-Med. -- not exactly matched, in the surplus way -- so if your hand measures 8-8.5", ask for those. (To size gloves, measure around your palm at widest point.)
These are the warmest, toughest mittens you're going to find anywhere! Excellent leather palms. Fuzzy "nose-wipe" backs. Fabric covers. Long sleeve gauntlets. Wool felt lining.
All proceeds go to support indie outdoor lore & heritage. I do this work via my website OutYourBackdoor.com -- 1500+ articles on a wide range of hard-to-find outdoor subjects. In print since 1990, online since 1994. Your support makes it happen! Feel free to check it out. Thank you, Jeff Potter
