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

    Not modern and hi-tec but still one of the best winter mitts available. Warm and virtually windproof - completely so when covered in frozen snow - they also provide excellent grip on snowy/icy rock. Now on my fifth pair.

    Top notch. NB My hand is normally on the large side of medium but for Dachsteins I have plenty of room in the small size.

    Took these out for their first outing in Snowdon. At -2C and 50mph winds, giving a wind chill of -17C, they were fairly warm. I wore no liner and the tips of my fingers were only slightly chilly. To make these the best combination i was recommended to get some thin liners and a waterproof shell. One great point is the surprising dexterity. While scrambling it was easy to cling onto rocks, and haul myself up. However opening and closing zips was a challenge.

    I always suffer from cold fingers and generally putting gloves on makes my fingers feel colder. Then theres these!! Wow, they keep my hands hot, not just warm. Im using them with extremities gortex shell mitts. Seems to me to be the perfect combination. Id been considering some of the seriously expensive mitts on the market so when I got these for well under £30 I was suitably impressed. Very happy with my purchase and the service was swift and seamless. What more could you ask for!

    These are to be used on the Everest Base Camp trek soon. I did have a pair about thirty years ago, and I seem to remember even when wet they kept your hands warm, and are good in snow.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Superbly warm, even when a little damp. I almost look forward to the cold days so I can wear them! If they were good enough for Chris Bonnington on the South Face of Annapurna, then theyre more excellent for my use (hill and low mountain walking/scrambling). Sizing can be a problem though.

    Excellent product. Beware the sizing when ordering though. These come up tight around the wrist and length of fingers suffers as a result of sizing up

    Not put them through their paces as yet, though the quality can be seen from the start, would recommend trying them on size wise in store if possible ? , i bought size small and they are a nice fit, if you are not sure buy size below they are in my mind a size bigger than the chart table.

    I havent experienced the conditions to properly assess the performance of these, and may not now until next winter, but on the face of things quite happy with my purchase. I initially bought large (normally go x large) and ended up dropping down to a medium . My advice would be that unless someone need mitts immediately to hold back until one can try a pair on as their fit is quite different.
