Parkitten Sleeves! Mittens integrated into a parka. How badly do you want them? I just thought of them yesterday. A quick google search shows a few examples already in production, so boo hoo, but none are quite like these.
A simple draw string closes the end of an elongated sleeve with a retractable thumb. Super warm! To free your hands, just open the draw string, push up the sleeves and snug the drawstring around your wrist to keep the too long sleeves behind your hands. A flap can cover the retracted thumb, but this is probably too much.
I am going to let Wiggy’s stumble upon this and put them into production. Or maybe I will send them the link to help things along. They can have the idea in exchange for two parkas. Both orange. One men’s medium and one women’s medium. The insulated hood is a must have.
