The Best Touchscreen Gloves You Can Actually Text With, According To Reviews

Finally a way to keep your hands warm and use your phone at the same time.
Isotoner women's fleece gloves and Ozero men's winter Nappa leather driving gloves

The slog of winter is hard enough, with shoveling, navigating black ice and ensuring you’re wearing the appropriate number of layers before you head out the door. Add trying to use your phone in the cold, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad (winter) day.

When you take off your mittens, your poor fingers are exposed to the elements and turn into little popsicles before your eyes. But trying to use Waze while your fingertips are encased in a thick layer of wool? Well, that’s not happening either. You need a pair of gloves you can actually text in. And although a lot of brands claim their gloves make this possible, not all of them work that well.

To keep you stress-free during the cold season, we’ve rounded up a selection of men’s, women’s and unisex gloves that reviewers say you can actually use your phone with as promised. Some are sporty, some are dressy, but all of them have touchscreen-friendly fingertips enabling you to scroll, take pictures and pick up the phone without needing to take your gloves off.

Promising review: "Absolutely love these gloves. Now that I’m getting older, gone are the days being outdoors for extended periods of time without gloves. I don’t like bulky gloves, so these were perfect! They provide the warmth I need for my walks, plus they function well when golfing in colder weather. I can use my phone to text or change my music while walking, and the textured grip makes sure the golf club doesn’t turn in my hand even while using my driver.
