I much prefer a mitten to a glove - my hands are warmer for a start, and there’s something snuggly about mittens in the winter that speaks to me.

Unfortunately, they can be very impractical if you’ve got to keep whipping them off to do things with your hands, so here’s the solution - Split Mittens! The split across the palm allows you to slide your whole hand out but will still keep your hand warm and because you don’t actually take the mitten off, it doesn’t get cold. Genius! (even if I say so myself :) )
