We all know that winter in the midwest can be a struggle for anyone who enjoys spending any time outside. This winter was not different. No, wait… this winter was different. #PolarVortex2019 was awful! During the month of February we had snow, brutal cold, more snow, a few more feet of snow and then there was more cold. Normally I will run outside, year round, but even I was forced inside!
Not the best time to lose your running gloves!
That’s right, the one that loves to run outside, even when it’s cold, was missing one of the key accessories for winter running – gloves! I even ended up running a 15k at the beginning of the month wearing 2 pairs of gloves… with handwarmers tucked in between. That didn’t work so well. My fingers were like little popsicles!
2 days later I got the best package in the mail…
Never heard of Tutrle Gloves? That’s ok, neither had I. But you need to check these out!
I received a pair of their “Winter Soft” convertible mittens. These midweight mittens are recommended for everyday use and for running below freezing temperatures. The mittens themselves are made of a soft fleece and come in a variety of colors. The ones they sent me are bright orange… or in my world… BibRave Orange! These gloves are going to be pretty hard to lose in the house (still looking for my old running gloves!)
They say they are recommended to about 25F, and tested as low as 15F by runners. I can attest that I ran in temps down to single digits and my fingers stayed warm! In fact, I flipped my mittens open to let them air out because my hands were getting too warm!
I love the fact that I can have my fingers covered and with a quick flip they can be opened up to let your fingers breathe. Still need to give the fingers more room to move? A quick fold down and your fingers are completely free!
When the cold or wind sneaks up on you again, a quick flip back and your mittens are back covering your hands!
Turtle Gloves are also not only made in the USA, but they are made in Michigan! Growing up in Michigan and now living in Wisconsin, I know cold! The fact that these are made in MI by people who understand the cold of the region makes me like them even more!
I was just about finished with this post and I had to come back to add one final note. Turtle Gloves just scored some major points with me! They do what they can to make sure their customers are taken care of and they stand behind their product! Short back story… last weekend in Little Rock, I noticed the stitching in my gloves was coming out. We contacted the company to let them know (I had only had these mittens for a few weeks) what happened. Today, a new pair showed up in my mailbox!
Thank you Turtle Gloves for proving that great customer service still exists! And yes, I will be ordering from you again!
