Women's Ragg Wool Fingerless Glove Oatmeal
About four years ago, I made my first B&B purchase. I think this was one of them.
I used to troll people who wore fingerless gloves because I just....didn’t...get...it.
I mean, either wear gloves, or don’t. I could see the reasons why fingerless gloves could be valid- tech touch screens, grabbing a wrench to tighten a screw, looking like a bad ass, etc.
It wasn’t till my line of work (film industry) that I saw one of those irrisistibly effortlessly cool girls wearing them on set with a clipboard under her shoulder and a coffee in the other, while it was drizzling and freezing and I was contemplating a new vocation. I asked her how she liked wearing the fingerless gloves which I henceforth suggest should be called “knuckle warmers.”
She let me try them on.
I felt invincible and cool and I also maybe need a motorcycle and a cabin in the woods.
I bought a pair immediately.
At first, I was very ginger with these new garments. No, I must keep them pristine and clean and protect them and keep them smelling like the store forever. But that’s not what these were built for, were they?
As hard work and time and elements evolve, my knuckle warmers did so, too. And let me tell you, I beat the crap out of these things. I have taken them backpacking, and beyond. They have stains of questionable origin. They sometimes smell like a hockey goaltender’s loins. But they wash in a washing machine good as new each and every time.
There is a time and place for mittens. And perhaps gloves. But most of my time is with my Bridge & Burn knucklewarmers. I’m writing this review now because I just saw they offer another color of these bad boys.
