Many famous people just don’t function without their gloves. Whether it’s the late Michael Jackson, the Queen of England, Muhammad Ali or O.J. Simpson at his murder trial, the glove can symbolize many things. When it comes to tailgating in the late fall and winter, gloves are a necessity to keep the party going. And don’t forget about the grillmaster who needs to protect his fingers from his sizzling food on the grill. Forget the bulky oven mitt, the Pit Mitt is the way to go.
The Pit Mitt is not what presidential hopeful Romney puts on when he gets floor seats to a Slipknot concert. Rather, the Pit Mitt is a hand protector that is heat resistant up to 475 degrees. Made from “synthetic aramid fibers,” this cook’s best friend is very flexible while protecting your fingers from getting burned.
Not since Homer Simpson (No. 1 seed in our Simpsons Tailgating Brackets) used his dueling glove to “glove slap” people in his way into power, have we seen such a beloved hand cover as the Pit Mitt. The online reviews are gushing about its performance and its sleek design looks way cooler than any grandmotherly oven mitt you’ve been forced to wear. The Pit Mitt is 13 inches long by 6¼ inches wide, and also has a long stretchable cuff that protects the forearm. The cuff can also be used for some cagey flask smuggling into the stadium.
