Great Value Mitts,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: GERMAN ARMY ISSUE GORETEX , FAUX FUR LINED SNOW MITTS/OVER MITTS (Misc.)
As has been mentioned these mitts are very warm and excellent value. I plan to use these in very cold conditions for both motorcycling and skiing. I've used them a couple of times on my bike so far and they work very well with thin thermal inners.
As has been mentioned you'll have to adjust how you ride, it takes some getting used to braking and using the clutch when using mitts. They turned out a lot warmer than my normal motorcycle gloves - I rode for over an hour in close to zero temperatures. This would have been impossible using my usual gloves which have a limit of about 15 minutes in those sort of temperatures.
I'm sure they would work at even lower temperatures when skiing/mountaineering, given that there's less wind compared to motorcycling. I'm convinced they'd be okay when skiing at -10 degC or colder.
In terms of sizing, I'm almost always an XL. I bought the Large as recommended by others and these have plenty of room for lining gloves. I could probably squeeze thicker gloves under them, but this might restrict movement too much. Although classed as "surplus" the gloves looked brand new and were very decent quality.
A real bargain!
