Dachstein Mitts Information

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.

    I bought these to replace a well loved pair bought in Austria many years ago. For someone who suffers with cold hands, they are ideal in cold and damp weather and if using walking poles. If very cold, I wear thin merino gloves underneath. Roasty, toasty hands.

    I have been using Dachsteins for over 40 years and they are still the best mitt for the winter!

    When I first heard of these thought they looked a bit old school, however sometimes old school is the best! Really happy with them and a great price.

    super warm. I ordered a small, and as a 6 foot guy, theyre perfect. had snowball fights in them and didnt get cold or wet hands.

    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

    Not only do they live up to all the claims made, mine are now over 30 years old and still performing as promised!

    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.

    Arrived promptly, well made and heavy duty. Just need some cold weather to try them out before I can pass a proper verdict.

    These are the best for cold and snow. Warm, cosy, tough. Just not the best thing to try and use your iPhone while wearing. But who cares about that!

    Fantastic mitts; the blurb says it all. No other mitts match or exceed these for their combination of function, price and aesthetic value.

    I got the small size even though my hands are quite large, fit perfectly and keep the wind and rain away. Highly recommend the mittens.

    Old school but excellent! My dad told me about these and he used to have a pair back in the day. He loved them and said they were excellent. I got him a pair a couple of year ago and decided to get myself them too. If you struggle with cold hand on winter climbs - these are what you need! Better than Goretex!

    The mitts are warm and flexible enough I can easily use the controller on my motorised wheelchair. My hands are large for a woman so I ordered a size M. Too small. The L is perfect, if a tad long. Overall, Im delighted with them.

    These were always the best and never fail. I wear them over thin gloves so always order a bigger size. I hope they never disappear
