These are the gloves reminiscent of the original A-9A Winter Flying Gauntlets worn by USAAF gunners during World War II. Provided to the U.S. Army between 1942 and 1944, the A-9A was issued to crew members charged with defending bombers, such as the iconic B-17, from attacking fighter aircraft. The gloves' separate trigger fingers and plush interiors provided gunners dexterity and warmth at high altitudes while manning the famed Browning machine gun. Made with vegetable-tanned 100% Merino sheepskin, these gloves' shearling interiors keep hands swaddled in luxurious warmth; the collars can be pulled down to cover the wrists. The separate forefingers offer nimble movement in cold weather without compromising warmth, unlike mittens that can't grasp objects or fully fingered gloves that release body heat. Enhanced for modern wear, the hidden seams provide a modern, slim look. Made in the U.S. (4 oz.)
To ensure a proper fit in our gloves, we encourage you to measure your hand to determine your glove size.
