Marine Corps Improved Cold Weather Trigger Finger Mitten

The improved cold weather trigger finger mitten is light weight, reduced bulk, hydrophobic, quick drying, and designed with a trigger finger for weapon operation. The mitten is intended to be used in temperatures ranging from -25 to 10°F. The mitten is compatible with the snow camouflage mitten shells and improved glove insert, and replaces the trigger finger mitten shells and inserts.

Material

The mitten palm is coated with a black rubberized material to facilitate gripping. The outer material is black in color and made from a breathable material.

Description

The mitten set consists of two components:

  • trigger finger mitten liner
  • insulated trigger finger mitten shell

The design of the mitten allows a left or right handed Marine to fire his personal or crew served weapon. Each mitten has an extended gauntlet to provide continuous protection to the wrist and lower forearm.
