Move aside, pockets, there’s a new kid in town. That’s how the people at Glove Guard would have it, anyway. Glove Guards are little two-ended clips designed to hold your gloves to a belt or belt loop, which seems silly when those same pants are likely equipped with that age-old innovation — pockets. Still, these would improve comfort — jammed into a fabric envelope and bunched up against one’s hip, gloves never seem to lie comfortably. But, as an added bonus, the clips have a breakaway portion to keep you from getting sucked into the chipper.

$5 a pop is a bit steep for such a low-grade innovation, but I can see these being the new Chip Clip. Maybe the designers had one thing in mind, but the market will probably come up with hundreds of additional uses.

    I’m sorry but this just screams “Metrosexual”

    I use these for my work gloves. Since at times work takes me to the top of tower cranes I can’t afford to drop anything. So far they have done the job for me much better than trying to find a pocket for my gloves. They also keep me from misplacing my gloves. Well worth it IMHO.

    Never could stand things hanging loose and swinging around my waist, but I can see these might come in handy now and then when you’re in places you can’t really afford to drop stuff.

    A couple of binder clips “borrowed” from the office should do this.
