Take advantage of a reprieve in the temperatures with Midwinter Stroll Mitts. Snug-fitting with a short length, these mitts are great for outdoor camera work (or simply hugging your coffee mug). Lots of freedom of movement and just enough warmth to help you get a steady shot! A trio of cables (mirrored on each hand) add visual interest.
