I was reading here and just noticed that the 4th was the last time I made a "public" entry, and they have been a bit of a downer lately too. So I think it's time to say something public and positive.

I have neat convertible gloves/mittens!



Ok, a bit more wordage. I prefer gloves to mittens. I always have because they have a little more dexterity than the practically no dexterity mittens. A long time ago I had need of fingerless gloves and found a pair that have a flap to convert them from fingerless gloves into mittens. I used them only for what I needed them for and put them away. I thought fingerless they were way too cold for a Chicago winters, and as I stated above I don't care for mittens. This winter I misplaced my regular gloves and dug those things out. Now that I'm using them more I'm appreciating the convertibility of them. When I need dexterity I flip them open and, hey, with the fingerless gloves I am actually touching what I'm holding with more dex than even fingered gloves. When I'm done I flip back to the "mitten mode" and get the extra warmth that mittens have over gloves. The best of both worlds!

Misinterpretation

I have to admit when I first read this I thought you bought a convertible and now you need to wear gloves/mittens when you drive it. Then I read it closer and well ya' know. Duh.

I also have a pair of these I got as a gift a few years back. I rarely use them because I thought I would need to have dexterity too often and the "converting" would start to be a pain in the but. Maybe I'll give those another chance. Thanks for sharing.

Tom :)

Re: Misinterpretation

You're welcome. I wasn't planning on giving a formal review, but since you're using yours because of me in fairness I'll list the negatives about them too.

When they're open the flap flapping bugs me. I don't usually bother to attach it to the velcro useless I know I won't be using them as mittens for an extended time. Getting the little velcro squares to line up takes a bit of care. Also until I learned to curl my fingers a little, the wind would go through the opening at the palm when I am using them as mittens.
