Snot Spot Nose Wipe (Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2006)

Overview

You've been there - your nose is running constantly while you're out snowshoeing/trekking and you don't want to take off your gloves or mittens to search for a hanky, you just washed your jacket and don't want to snot up the sleeve, and you are wearing BMW Vapr Mitts with a silnylon back that just doesn't do the job or feel good on your nose. Or, your hand wear did have a nice, soft nose wiper but it's already worn out, long before the end of the useful life of your gloves/mittens. What to do? Monica Martin and friends had similar thoughts and came up with a solution. Soft microfleece Snot Spots that can be added to a glove or mitten (and even your bare hand), then later removed and washed.

What do I think? My nose runs constantly when I hike and I'm excited about the Snot Spots, especially since they fit on bare hands (my nose running knows no seasons).
