I have this new question and eager to see the answer from my favorite historian - matmohair1. All discussions are welcomed.

With mail mittens it is really complicated to manipulate the two elements. Possible? well in a controlled environment it's plausible ... However I wouldn't want to have a couple of these equipped in a battle frenzy.

For optimal performance, you need at least two fingers (thumb + index finger) available to manipulate with sufficient dexterity that such actions require. You'll need somo of these:

If you follow the Bannerlord development process, you can see here what I think of archers equipped with mittens :iamamoron:🥊🏹.

In the course of time, the split mail gloves were eventually combined with split gauntlets made of plates.
