TURTLe-FLIP Watch Out Mitten Review

Disclaimer: I received Turtle Flip Watch Out Mittens in exchange for my review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador) and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

Let's be honest. This winter has really been dragging on! I am currently training for the Fargo Marathon coming up in May and have had a more solid mileage base and logged more miles than I ever have before in marathon training. With a nice balance of strength + pilates work mixed in, I have actually really enjoyed the higher mileage! 

With all of the winter miles, there have been plenty of stinking cold, blizzard-y runs taking place. Plus, this winter has had WAY more winter storms than our usual! But you have to make the best of the weather you're given - and that means dressing appropriately and getting outside whenever I have the chance. 

I received some pretty sweet mail from Turtle Gloves on Valentine's Day: the TURTLe-FLIP Watch Out Mittens. I chose the orange (to match BibRave orange, of course) and with a left watch gusset. This gusset option makes it easy to view your watch anytime during the run, without rolling up sleeves or losing any of your warmth. Turtle-Flip Watch Out mittens allow you to choose a left or right watch gusset to match your personal preference.

I'm a right-hander that always runs with my watch on my left wrist. The Watch Out slot definitely makes the TURTLe-FLIP Watch Out Mittens unique and quite handy on the run (or walk or skating or whatever you do):
The Turtle-Flips are a mid-weight running mitten made with Polartec® Power Stretch Pro® Wicking, breathable, and fast-drying material. They are super soft and very stretchy! I have thrown mine in the washer and dryer probably ten times now and they hold up so well. Very easy to wash and have ready for the next morning's run.

Another Turtle-Flip feature I enjoy is the fingers-out or fingers-in option. I have ran in a mix of weather with these - a huge variety actually! The only time they felt a little chilly along the seams was when it was an actual temp of -17°F, plus who knows the wind chill factor that early morning. It was stinkin' windy (likely another -30°F morning). That was the only time I felt they weren't warm enough. 

Then I have worn them on warmer days, say upper 20's, and, if they feel too warm, I just flip them into fingers-out mode:
For sizing, I went with their recommendation of Small that works for most women and they feel quite roomy, but I would rather that than too tight. The Turtle-Flip Watch Out mittens come in a variety of colors and are made in the U.S.A. - Woop Woop! Check out the colors here and snag that discount code below for 15% off your mittens:
