Recommendations for Smartphone Gloves?

By  | 

I know I’m a little late to the game this season but after wandering around Vancouver in the cold, freezing my hands off every time I wanted to take a picture, I’ve decided I need to get a pair of smart phone gloves. Which would also help outfit me if I am able to find an affordable flight to Alaska before the spring.

I’ve been tempted by the cheap $3 wool versions I see at Target, but I’d like a pair that can replace my existing gloves and have been tempted by several leather options on Sierra Trading Post which are an affordable $20-$24 if you’re signed up for their Deal Newsletters.

What I don’t know is how compatible they should be? Is one finger enough or do I need a pair with all fingers touch screen responsive? They only problem with the latter is the selection tends to be a little more sporty than professional.

I would welcome any and all reader recommendations for touchscreen gloves you do or don’t like!

    I have the Nike US Flag ones that I wore while spectating in Sochi last year. They’re pretty cool and it only has 1 finger that’s touch sensitive (index finger.)
    For taking photos, I think having these type of gloves is fine. For texting, I think you’re better off getting a touchscreen stylus and using that while wearing your gloves.
    For professional stuff, I have a small stylus that I use to unlock my iPhone, take photos, write messages/texts, etc. (wearing non-touch sensitive leather gloves of course!) 😉

      Ha! I hadn’t even thought about a stylus. Also a good idea 🙂

    I have worn the Echo Touch gloves for several winters (I live in Alaska). Echo’s “warmer” fabric gloves keep my hands warm. To be useful, it’s important that the gloves fit your finger correctly, so trying them on in person is good.
