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
