Although with weather like this doesn’t exactly entice one to hang outside for long, sometimes directions must be found, a text sent or an Instagram posted. Here’s five options on how you can do just that without exposing your lovely little fingers to the harsh winter winds. See our finds after the jump!
Isotoner Women’s Hybrid Spandex/Fleece Glove,Camel,One Size, $32.00 from Amazon
I have a pair kind of like this. The design offers high digit mobility and warmth (which is kinda the point, right?). These are good for those in especially frigid climates or who are especially cold weather wusses (guilty). Available in charcoal, a beautiful plum color, fierce red and white!
SwypeGloves Brown Texting Gloves – ‘Grand Canyon’ Touchscreen Gloves, from Amazon
Australian wool makes up this toasty option. But fear not overheating — the company uses a herringbone knit so it remains believable. We love the two-tone aspect of these! You can flip down the wrist for a dash of bold magenta. Also, they are unisex, hence the rather furry model arm above.
Heat Factory Women’s Fold-Back Ragg Wool Gloves for use with Heat Factory Hand Warmers, $21.95 from Amazon
These might not be ideal for winter outdoor texting (or iPad diddling) at great length, but they’re a great design for quick bare-finger access. And when you’re done using those digits, you can flip the mittens shut and absorb the lovely warmth of the hand warmers in their special pocket! Ooh.
Extra Long Cozy Texting Gloves by Twitten (Charcoal), from Amazon
This can provide a light, extra layer of protection all up your arm while still allowing you texting capabilities! Probably more ideal for slightly warmer regions.
Isotoner Women’s SmarTouch Touch Screen Compatible Glove, Black, Medium/Large, $24.95 from Amazon
And now for the most serious of the serious touch-screen friendly gloves… these come hardcore insulated, with grip-reinforced palms and, according to Isotoner: “Conductive thread on index fingers and thumbs conveys electrical impulse to the touchscreen.” Hi-tech!
Do you already own a pair of gloves like these? Would you wear any of the above styles?
