Woolen Mitten Flasks

The Mitten Flask is a Great Way to Sneak a Drink With You Wherever You Go

— October 12, 2014 — Art & Design
The Mitten Flask will help keep you warm during the colder months thanks to the secret pocket that hides three ounces worth of booze. These mittens are a great way to bring a little bit of liquid courage with you wherever you go.

The Mitten Flask is designed to look like a standard glove in a set of knitted mittens. Inside the inner palm of the mitten is a subtle zipper pocket that conceals a secret plastic pouch. The pouch is able to hold up to three ounces of liquid comfortably inside the mitten. The pouch then hooks up to a tube in thumb of the mitten that is perfect for drinking through. Now you can enjoy a drink while you're out skating, snowboarding, skiing or tobogganing.
