ALL-IN-ONE: Convertible Mittens – Fingerless Gloves – Arm Warmer Sleeves – Wrist Band – Layer

Yes, the Watch Gusset was part of our Original Patent. Since most Turtle-Flip Running Mittens are made with a long wrist and can convert into an arm warmer sleeve, they need to be folded if continuous watch viewing is desired. The Watch Gusset opening allows for convenient viewing or covering the watch when needed.

Watch slot location – Standard Left Outside Wrist (Optional RIGHT Wrist available when indicated for some models)

🤔 This was a challenge in making the decision to place the watch gussets where they are located on the First LIMITED EDITION batch. Custom options may be available by request and future batches may be different. The next round may be made like the shirts and hoodies where you are forced to wear in one flipping direction or we might offer a left and right version.

Because Turtle Gloves are interchangeable, the Turtle-Flip Mitten wearer decides their favorite flipping direction, either flipping open so the thumb piece naturally folds into place on the back of hand or on the palm depending on which way they choose.

When we asked many people where they prefer to wear their watch, most people voted for left wrist, outside of wrist. So, we made the mittens in a way that would work regardless of which glove they wear on the left hand. With most people being ‘right hand’ dominate, this normally results in wearing a watch on the left hand for a number of reasons. However, many ‘left handers’ still wear gps watch on left wrist and some ‘right handers’ wear on right wrist. 

Still, there are more people that choose opposite flipping direction than people that wear their watch on the right hand. Rather than restrict the former option, we elected to place the opening in opposite locations on a pair of gloves so the watch would be at the outside of the left wrist regardless of which glove is worn on that hand. If the wearer chooses to wear the watch on the right hand, the watch will end up on the inside of the wrist but at least there is the option of wearing a watch on the right hand. We thought about leaving both sides open but it makes them more difficult to use and maybe would get too cold at the wrist.

People with only one hand are clever enough to flip with their teeth or tools (we have seen impressive examples of this capability) or with support from others. They can choose the mitten with the easiest flipping direction but may be limited with the watch opening location depending on model availability. We also have a LONE TURTLE program, by request, for people that only need one mitten or have lost one.
