We're Loving: Convertible Mittens

01/03/2007 at 03:57 PM ET

Fingerless gloves may look effortlessly cool, but for those of us who are permanently cold, we need our tips to be covered! I have finally found the perfect solution — convertible gloves with a handy mitten flap attached. Want to dial on your cell phone with ease? Go fingerless. Walking in the cold for a while? Flip over the mitten flap and your hands are nice and toasty. I’m not the only one in the office who is loving this practical twist on the standard glove. Here are a few of our favorites. — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

I am Canadian and we have been wearing these glovemitts for years here. They aren’t exactly “new” to the scene (at least not in this country). They are great to wear around this time of year. Notice the little velcro patch there? Thats for holding the mitten flap down in place when you flip it open. Be careful not to get the velcro full of fuzz or the little thing becomes useless.

These aren’t anything new! I wear them every winter.

Wow, I was so suprised that you consider these mittens new! I’m also Canadian and I’ve been wearing these gloves forever. Strange that they aren’t everywhere in the US too. They are great though!

Sherri, I was just gonna say that. I bought them for my hubby a few years back. He found them annoying. Not sure why but it wasn’t long b4 he stopped wearing them. I’m pretty sure I got them at Walmart at Square One in Mississauga, Ontario.

I live in Pennsylvania, and I’ve had a pair of these gloves for about four years now. They definitly are not something new here.

I love them so much. I don’t know what I would do without them! They are pink with different colors around each finger. I got them at Delia’s in high school for like $5. They were the best deal ever!

They’re definitely not new, but they’re still cute. I’ve seen these years ago.

Yes, these are not new in Canada or the U.S.A.!!

I have been using this type of glove for 10yrs when I go landscape painting in the New England winters!
