Tucked up into the hills above Ventura is a little valley with a park in it called Arroyo Verde. The valley floor is covered in a carpet of green grass, and the valley is ringed by trails through the hillsides. It’s a popular place for picnics, birthday parties, and little league games – and if you’re a dog-lover, there’s no better place in town to watch happy pups run at full speed trying to catch their favorite ball or stick.

These mitts are designed to echo the green valley floor and the ring of trails around it. They are perfect for a brisk morning walk and lightweight enough to shove into a pocket once the day warms up. If you live somewhere with mild winters, or if your winter is starting its transition to spring, these mitts will keep you just the right amount of cozy. They’re graded to three sizes and feature a thumb gusset for a snug fit.
