    Great For One Snowboarding Season

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've owned two pairs of these gloves and love them, however, I find they don't hold up over time. Both pairs lasted me only one season before the finger fabric started to tear. They have multiple layers so the cold wasn't such an issue but eventually the touch screen capability stops working. I'd likely buy again because of the price point but do wish they'd hold up longer.

    If the glove fits..

    I got these gloves for my father and he loves wearing them, but not just because they fit. He thinks they are a perfect weight for the uphill on tours, and keep his hands warm while he is loading and unloading all our family's gear from the car to the ski slope. They made a great gift and I am happy they keep our family's "butler" hands warm and dry.

    Decent for the price, but not fantastic

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I don't know if my expectations were too high, but I wore these in Toronto in December (34-20F temps) and my fingers were always cold. I was pretty warm wearing my other gear (layering with fleece and a MH Ghost Whisperer down jacket, MH neck gaiter, and MH beanie), and I was toasty warm, but only my fingers got cold quickly. I don't know if this is normal or not, since I was just visiting Toronto. However, I did get these on sale, and it's possible that these weren't meant for those kinds of temps, but I was expecting a bit more.

    Yishi, sounds like the gloves weren't the right ones for what you needed. The Flurry Gloves are a bit more wind resistant and warm for those kinds of temperatures. Also, warmth of glove is such a personal thing. They might be perfect for someone else in that situation. Thank you for writing!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I purchased these because I wanted touch-screen compatible gloves for driving and casual around town use in the fall and winter. Previously I would just wear thin, removable inner lining gloves that pair with my snow skiing gloves, but wanted something a bit warmer. First off, the best part of these gloves is how touch-screen compatible they really are. I can use my phone hassle-free with both thumbs and index fingers while wearing these gloves. Second, these gloves have a nice weight and thickness to them; it seems like they would not squeeze into skiing gloves very well. And third, while they are warmer than the inner gloves I had been using, my hands don't have the toasty, inside an oven feeling I had hoped. But, perhaps I was expecting too much from a pair of gloves that cost under $40.

    For the price of these gloves and how well they allow you to use a touch-screen device while wearing them, these gloves are a good choice and I would recommend them to my pals.

    Excellent touchscreen gloves.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I visited a local outdoor sports store and tested about a dozen touchscreen-compatible gloves from the major outdoor brands. The OR PL400 had the best combination of warmth and touchscreen-usability. It's a double-layer fleece design with smooth outer face - more wind resistant than tufted fleece, but it'd benefit from a waterproof-breathable membrane sandwiched between the layers. There was one model that had the double layer + membrane design, but touchscreen tips were dismal.

    The touchscreen usability is tops. Sensor tips cover a good portion of both pads and tips of fingers - this is important, as some of the gloves had conductive material only at the tips, which renders them useless for many common ways of holding your phone (ie, one-handed, with the side of your thumb doing the tapping). Also, the thumb and index finger pads aren't bulky with too many extra material. The tighter the cut around these fingertips, the more of the screen you can see underneath. Contrast this with the TNF Etip APEX+ - the thumb tips are bulky and cover a huge portion of the screen keyboard, making it very hard to type.

    You get what you pay for!

    Good piece of gear... mostly used as back up gloves. My biggest issue was the fact that they were pretty bulky and just not warm enough. As far the touchscreen-compatible finger tips... not so much. I could barely unlock my iPhone and iPad. I would always end up taking one of my gloves off.

    Good as back up gloves.
