  You'll not see them on the slopes at Gstaad. Neither are they for people with small or medium hands. They are however very good, well made, hard-weather, hard-wearing mitten outers that will probably out live you and keep your hands warm and dry no matter what the elements throw at you. They are thorn/nettle proof too and You'd have to be doing something really hard core to damage or destroy them in a bushcraft scenario. I bought them to cover my Buffalo Mittens that have become thin and not so efficient. They are quite large across the hand and although the wrist strap tightens to keep them secure they still make anything more intricate than basic hand movements difficult. Opening a pocket zip is difficult for example. I reckon you'd need to remove them for stuff like that in most cases. It's taken a few days to get the hang of them but they will be with me now at all times, either in my rucksack or pocket. Certainly in Winter, Spring and Autumn, as I get cold hands when out in windy, wet weather, and I know I won't with these on top of my Buffalo's! Although classed as 'used' mine hadn't been issued or worn and were as new as if bought from the manufacturer. Well worth the money and a good buy compared to the usual brands of high quality weather proof mittens. Usual fault free service from Woodlore, so thank you.

  These mitts are not 'shiny and new' as the pair pictured seem to be. Mine were quite grubby. They are used, grade 2 surplus. Good mittens though, and fit for purpose. I'll be using mine along with the buffalo mitts as an inner, instead of the woolpower gloves.

  Got these together with the Hestra glove liners and have to say, I am very, very disappointed about the quality and the fit of these Mittens. Given, they do not cost a lot, but the leather is very stiff in the cold, the fit is restricting, followed by cold fingers using Woolpower Mittens (L) inside as recommended. Wasted money, should have got me the Hestra waterproof overmittens instead.

Hello Heinz. I''m very sorry to hear of your disappointment with these mittens. They are definitely a lower cost (and therefore lower quality) alternative to the Hestra Mittens; however, Ray Mears and the entire Woodlore team have been using these surplus mittens in the Arctic for many years now without any issues at all. If you are unhappy with your pair, please get in touch and we would be happy to issue you with a refund or replacement.
