Question What are these straps on my glove for?

I just got these new Burton Women's Profile gloves yesterday and I'm assuming the long straps are to attach the gloves to my coat or something? That's the only use I can think of for them haha. Unless I'm missing something? Take a look:

I've always called them idiot straps.

Put your wrist thru the loop, cinch it up with the slider, then put the glove on

When you take your glove off, you don't drop it off the lift (like an idiot..,.hence my name for them)

Burton jackets have a small elastic loop at the end of the sleeves. Force the round sliding piece of plastic through the loop and your gloves are tethered to your jacket.
