You know what, don’t knock fingerless gloves until you’ve owned this pair. They are especially useful when I take Coco to nursery school or really go anywhere (like the grocery store) where I know that use of fine motor skills for securing coat snaps, zipping zips, fumbling for car keys, opening lipstick caps, etc. is involved. I always need access to my actual fingertips to do many of these things and I'm sick of the constant on-off of gloves and mittens. It's just more convenient and easier to wear a glove like this for very hands-on moments. I bought the black but they come in several colors including a really pretty camel and ivory.
