Often I spend the time before my morning coffee kicks in browsing the Harbor Freight website. (Think of it as a shorter, more-virtual version of the classic Saturday morning Harbor Freight trip, but with less danger of returning home with a $35 trunk-full of cheap tools.) This morning I came across the above pictured item: a set of mittens.
Yes, mittens. Now my first thought was to fire up the editor and write a post about how crazy it is that the ‘Freightster sells $2 leather mittens. (Insert lame S&M joke here.) But then I remembered that all you incredibly-bright Toolmongers hand me my ass every time I do so, because there’s usually a use for tools like this of which I’m unaware.
So help me out: When are mittens better than gloves for work?
