Researching the Internet and consulting with some our customers who are reenactors, we found a wealth of information on this subject. There is way too much to post here but this is a sampling of what others are doing. If you know of a great resource that would benefit others, please feel free to send it to us.

Reenactor.net’s World War II Section contains articles, videos of mock battles, a list of reenacting organizations, a living history forum and much more. This website has sections for all historical reenactments from ancient times to the present.

Since 1975, museums, associations and other groups around the world have been creating a living history of World War II. Museums primarily showcase history with impressive relics from the past and trained interpreters to tell the story to the public. Although museums offer an accurate and interesting reflection of the past, it is not enough for many.

Living the Past Through Historical Reenactments
Associations and other groups are more interested in historical reenactments that allow the participants to live the history themselves to better understand it. As a result, the public rarely sees their work. This passionate group is made up of militaria collectors, history buffs, professional military and veterans and can be found throughout Europe, the U.S., and Australia.

These boots were developed by the military for cold weather and extreme cold weather conditions. Mickey Mouse Boots are the best cold weather boot in the world, ideal for hunting, ice fishing, snowmobiling,  working construction and in the oil fields. They keep your feet warm all day long. It is recommended that you wear them with one pair of wool socks with the top of the sock folded over the top of the boot to avoid chafing.

Designed for Cold Weather
The Mickey Mouse boot has two layers of thick wool insulation that wick moisture along with an insulating air bladder made of two layers of rubber. The exterior of the boot is waterproof, made of heavy rubber. There is an air valve in the boot that should be kept closed during normal use. When flying at high altitudes the valve should be opened to allow pressure equalizations.

Since the U.S. Military is responsible for equipping our troops with the best in combat gear, we have found that military surplus cold weather gear is some of the best available for outfitters and outdoorsmen.
