Touch screen friendly gloves

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello friends
I was wondering if you guys could recommend a touch screen friendly gloves that would also be warm. Ideally I don't want to wear the glove liner since I always tend to lose those. What is the best app that let's you see where your friends are on the mountain?

Sounds like the Marauders Map..

Are there apps that track your friends? I knew I didn't want a Smartphone. If I want you to know I'm there, I'll call you.

I use Burton Gondy gloves. All fingers are touch enabled. Touch enabled gloves are not that many in the market. Or Dakine Raptor.

I had the Smartwool gloveliners which were $25 and fell apart within a season. Last year I picked up a bunch of similar little woven cotton gloves at Target that have thumb and forefinger touchscreen tips that were $2/pair. When they rip or I lose them, I just grab the next pair. I think they were these, but I know I paid $2 in the store:

Fred Meyer here in Oregon has similar ones that are 99 cents/pair. 

 

I can't imagine a touchscreen compatible insulated glove that would be warm enough and be small enough to hit the small touch targets on a phone. I think you'd really need a liner.

You'll be surprised:) corners of fingertips are the best. They are like little pens~

you want to google "fingerless gloves with thumb flap"


Then you have your pick of the litter of hipster hobo gloves.
