Dachstein Mitts Description

  • Season : AW14

  • Gloves & Mitts - Dachstein Mitts

    These are the classic heavy duty, pre shrunk wool mitts for serious mountain warmth. Made well oversized and then boiled to shrink to a thick feltlike mitt, they are a definite must for the tough Scottish winters. 

    Dachstein Mitts are not waterproof, however they do retain some of the natural oils from the wool and are naturally water resistant. Dachstiens have been popular with mountaineers for decades for their legendary ability to keep your hands warm whatever the weather. 
    When used in winter conditions, ice will form over the mitt which actually helps to keep the hands warm.

    As modelled by Clint Eastwood in the classic 1975 film, the Eiger Sanction.

    *Please note that the sizing of the Dachstein Mitts is very large, so you may need to order a size, or even two sizes down, from your regular glove size

    • Dachstein Mitts Review

      By Jim on 3
      Good old fashioned mitts that have had a good testing in the recent weather. They are a bit "hard" initially, not as soft as I expected wool to be. They are much more windproof and have done a good job with wet snow. Im pleased.

      By Leigh Lawrance on 5
      I suffer from a mild form of Raynauds syndrome and if my fingers get cold they become very painful and take ages to rewarm. On a skiing holiday last week I wore the mitts ,with thin undergloves, on a day that was cold with snow falling.Even though the mitts had snow on them they kept my hands warm and painfree. Good value for money.

      By Iain Pearson on 4
      These are not the most fashionable mitts but for functionality, they are brilliant. Ive recently come back from a mountaineering weekend in Scotland and used these mitts on a couple of occasions when the weather took a turn for the worse. They were great whilst climbing as ice/snow would form on the gloves and help keep them insulated. I used them with a thin pair of liner golves and they worked perfectly. These are great back up gloves for when the temperature drops and cannot be faulted for great value.

      These cant be beaten when worn over a thinner, waterproof and windproof pair of gloves. Then the layer of ice really does form on them and work...old ideas are still the best.

      As someone who suffers badly from cold fingers these are my miracle cure for winter. Using them with a pair of thin gloves keeps my fingers toasty in wet & windy conditions

      I use them for cycling as well as walking as they are the only gloves that keep my hands warm when wet.
