Vancouver 2010 Olympic Red Mittens
  • I basically ignore any Vancouver 2010 Olympic advertising or promotions, because as a resident of that area, I know that this event will make commuting hellish and eventually leave our province in debt
  • However, I loved these mittens, and when I found out that the proceeds of each one, at $10 per pair, goes to supporting Canadian Olympic athletes in obtaining training and top equipment, I was all for it
  • At first, I thought that these mittens were just a promotional item
  • I love the colour red anyway, and although I usually wear gloves rather than mittens, as I find mittens to be somewhat restricting, I started wearing them
  • I would recommend that if you are doing activities such as skiing or snowshoeing, or any outdoor activity in the wet weather, that you will not find these useful

      I began seeing some advertising for some red knit Olympic mittens, and not long after, I began to see people wearing these mittens all over Western Canada. I travel all over BC and Alberta for work, and I couldn’t miss the bright red mittens that have the 5 Olympic rings symbol on the outside, and a maple leaf on the palm. I basically ignore any Vancouver 2010 Olympic advertising or promotions, because as a resident of that area, I know that this event will make commuting hellish and eventually leave

      our province in debt. However, I loved these mittens, and when I found out that the proceeds of each one, at $10 per pair, goes to supporting Canadian Olympic athletes in obtaining training and top equipment, I was all for it. Plus, given the number of people wearing them, they are fast becoming a fashionable accessory.

      At first, I thought that these mittens were just a promotional item. But my mother decided to purchase them for the entire family. I love the colour red anyway, and although I usually wear gloves

      rather than mittens, as I find mittens to be somewhat restricting, I started wearing them. Although in the Vancouver area, it seldom gets cold enough to wear mittens, and you more likely need waterproof ones anyway, in Alberta where I am living for several months, they are coming in extremely handy. Yes, they are very warm; the knit material is extremely cozy. Although I could not wear them to ski or hike, for day to day use being outside in the cold, they are perfect. The Olympic and maple leaf ...

      symbol are very cool, and the idea that you are helping the athletes is a good thing, even if you don’t agree with the Olympics being held in your part of the world. Plus, the red is very cool.

      So, I love my Olympic mittens, but they are not waterproof, so don’t expect them to keep your hands dry. I would recommend that if you are doing activities such as skiing or snowshoeing, or any outdoor activity in the wet weather, that you will not find these useful. However, they are

      warm, so in dry, cold weather or activities that you do not require free movement of all of your fingers, these mittens are great.

      Cost: $10.

Daveridell, this statement is not understandable. If you have a question, I would suggest re-stating it differently.
