It doesn’t matter whether it’s a mitten day or a glove day when you have the Better Sweater™ Gloves to give you the best of both worlds. This convertible fingerless glove/mitten combo is made from our Better Sweater® fleece, a 100% polyester fabric dyed with a low-impact process that significantly reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy and water compared to conventional dyeing methods. Durable and fast-drying, these gloves have a tight, sweater-knit exterior and a soft fleece interior. Mitten pockets fold back over tops of the hands, where they button securely; elastic wrists seal out cold.
I live for fliptop mittens. I live in MN, and my work consistently requires me to be outside so I need functional gloves that will keep me warm.
Starting last year I began earnestly looking for new fliptops as I needed to think about retiring the ones I'd used for the past 4 years. I bought three other ones before landing on this one, and each of the other three displayed a mix of these issues:
- the lining only lived in the palm area, leaving fingers cold - the finger "openings" were too tight, causing a lack of circulation and cold air - the fliptop part was positioned too high, meaning it would slip off -the clasp was difficult to close - etc, etc.
These work really well. I really like that they come in a variety of sizes (small hands here). I thought the velcro would become cumbersome, but I have yet to feel irritated. They are perfectly warm, the grip is surprisingly effective (I turned pages!), and they're soft. My only real complaint is the lack of colors to pick from. I recommend these to everyone.
