Pre-Order

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

Pre-Launch

With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Estimated Delivery Dates

Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.

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

      "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."

      "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. "

      "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."

      "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."
