This is a set of Extreme Cold Weather Mittens that were used in the US Military. The mittens are for wear in extreme cold weather situations when you don’t need the full dexterity of a more typical full fingered glove. The outer shell has a faux fur wool upper for warmth and to quickly shed snow, while the palm is leather for durability and protection from the elements. Inside the mittens are removable liners that are made of material similar to a poncho liner. These add a layer of insulation for when not wearing winter gloves with the mittens, though wearing cold weather gloves with the mittens will give you maximum warmth and protection. Glove gauntlet is extended so that it covers coat and parka cuffs and can be cinched down with straps. The mittens, when new, come with a string attaching the together so they can be draped over the neck when not in use. Overall these are big, warm and ready for the coldest temps.
