Touch Screen Knit Gloves Keep Your Fingers From Getting Frosty

Ah, smartphones and tablets. We all love them, right? But if you’ve not gone through a winter with them the odds are pretty good you’re going to find yourself in the predicament I was last year, where your phone rings and because you’re wearing gloves you can’t answer it. Then your choices are to remove your gloves so your hands freeze, or waiting until you get inside to a warmer location to use your phone. Neither one is a very good option.

I’ve looked at several different prodcuts in the past, from conductive glove pins to Etre Fivepoint and Touchy Winter Gloves, and then the Isotoner SmarTouch Gloves which I bought almost immediately after writing about them (I’m partial to Isotoner gloves, always have been, and they quickly proved their worth). Now there’s another one on the market, from Boss Tech Products, Inc., that I kind of want as well. Mostly because I like the design.

The gloves are made of 95% acrylic and 5% spandex, so they should stretch to fit comfortably. Each glove features two conductive fingertips (index and middle) as well as a conductive thumb, which puts them miles above the other types I’ve seen thus far. They work not just with phones or tablets, but with any other touchscreen you might encounter, such as gas pumps, ATMs, and even airline checkin screens. What I like best about them is that they’re black with a gun printed on them. You know, in case you need to quick play cops and robbers with a friend. In retrospect, cancel that airline thought…I’m guessing even though the guns are obviously not real you probably don’t want the hassle.

These are supposed to fit either men or women, although they don’t appear to come in actual sizes, and each pair costs only $19.95 US.
