Best iPhone glove so farNov 30, 2011
By Jano Mossman
I recently got a Wahoo iPhone case to use my iPhone as a bike computer.Since I need to use the unit as I ride, and in cold weather I need some touchscreen sensitive gloves. I first tried other gloves that were less expensive and even a pair that were specificly bicycling gloves but was looking for a glove from a known glove making/selling company so they would fit properly as well as keep my hands warm and work on the touchscreen. These work on all levels and have a straightforward leather fingers and palm that is treated to work on the touchscreen rather than a piece of silver fabric sewn on a regular pair of gloves. I got a few pair of those and they are all liner weight so if I want to keep my hands warm I still have to use another pair of gloves then take them off to use the phone,
what is the point?
These OR Sensors are a real pair of gloves, made by a reputable glove making company, that fit properly, keep my hands warm biking in 29 degree weather and work on the touchscreen. The only thing missing for use cycling
is a terry patch for nose wiping and some palm padding. So far the best I've found.

Not suprisedDec 07, 2011
First and foremost, these gloves do what gloves must do; they keep your hands warm. I commute via train and walk a mile to and from the station daily and simply stated, these gloves keep my hands warm. If my wife saw me say (type) that she'd say I'm fibbing because my hands are "always" cold.
These gloves are also extremely comfortable, they have a profile similar to liners and yet they are as warm as heavier gloves.
As for the touch screen technology, it works perfectly!!! And it's on all 5 fingers!!!
I have arthritic fingers and often can't use my thumb or index fingers and unlike other "sensor" gloves, that's NOT a problem with these wonderful gloves.
I first received an Outdoor Research hat as a gift 2 years ago and have been buying their winter gear since.

husband is happyJan 03, 2012
My husband wanted gloves for Christmas to use with his phone. I read many of the other reviews with the various brands. My husband really likes these gloves. They are heavy enough to keep his hands warm during his morning workout. They are not thin liners like I've read in other reviews, but they also are not ski gloves. They are not like the other gloves I have looked at. Other gloves have a silver dot or silver threads in the tips. These gloves do not, the special material is somehow in the leather. (Please don't ask if its real leather because I don't really know). You can't see the special thread. My husband says they work great with his Droid X and he can even use the back side of the finger tip too (where your nail is).
I hope this helps.

"TouchTec" is great. Logo is really ugly (like shiny Puff Paint).Feb 19, 2012
By Steve Smart
The "TouchTec" leather on these gloves works great on touch screens. Much better than relying on conductive threads sewn into the fingertips, like other models. And these are decently warm. Most competing products are only suitable for use as glove liners. Minor complaints:
1) The raised logo is incredibly, obnoxiously ugly. It looks like a child attacked your gloves with *shiny* 'puff paint'. The photograph cannot convey this.
2) The leather at the finger tips is fairly thick. This makes them less tactile when using the touchscreen. But they are clearly made to be sturdy. So this is a reasonable compromise.
Four stars for reasonable warmth and good touchscreen sensitivity. Be sure you can handle the ugly logo.
UPDATE: I just want to reemphasize the "fat fingers" nature of these gloves. You get a sense of the squared-off finger tips when looking at the photos. They work, but precision is limited, particularly when trying to type on any kind of on-screen keyboard.

Warm, tight fitting gloves, allow you to use touchscreen.Jun 30, 2012
By Chris F
I bought these as warm driving/general winter gloves. They have some extra stitching loop at the tip of the finger that allows you to easily use any touch screen: from car navigation, cell phone, to tablet. Was also able to type fairly well in them on a keyboard. I love the tight fit nature of them, gives your fingers great dexterity and maneuverability for performing other tasks without having to take your gloves off and exposing your hands to the weather.
I used them through an entire season exclusively. They did pretty well in the cold, wind, snow, and rain. They don't seem entirely water proof, I'm sure enough exposure will soak through - like most gloves. However I definitely had some fun in the snow with these without getting cold or soaking wet instantly. The only real con is they're a bit expensive to take a gamble on, but they are by far my favorite glove I've found so far (usually pick up a new pair every year or two previously). I wore them down to temps around 0f and they were pretty comfortable, maybe with a thin glove liner too.
