Are they mittens or gloves? Well, you could say Choko’s new Leather Handy Mitts are a bit of both.

When you’re riding, they are a mitten, designed to keep your hands warm in the coldest of conditions with top-quality, extra-soft cowhide and 3M Thinsulate. But say you’re stopped and you want to snap a photo, answer the phone or take a drink. Instead of taking your mitts off, just unzip the side zipper. Your hands will still be warm but now you’ll have the dexterity of a glove. The material on the index fingers is even touch-screen compatible.

Choko’s new Leather Handy Mitts are also pre-curved for ease of movement, they come with a left-hand visor wiper, an extra layer of Thinsulate on the thumb, and a double leather palm that is reinforced to provide strength, durability and a better grip.
