Default touch screen gloves

I go skiing alot and I need new gloves... Thought it would be a good idea to buy touch screen compatible ones... Anyone know a good brand of touch gloves???

I also want to mention that they dont have to be good for playing games... just something that will let me take a call... or better yet, text... is there an app that allows for easier texting in gloves???

Cycle Gear has touch screen motorcycle gloves. Don't know if you have one in your area. They sell online and have about 100 stores nationwide. Motorcycle gloves are usually warm and well sealed because of the wind chill factor. Just saw them in an ad they sent to my email.

Check out REI. They have a few to choose from...

Touchscreen Gloves at REI - FREE U.S. STANDARD SHIPPING No minimum purchase!

I know you asked for brands but I don't go skiing so I have no clue. However, I think REI is the best store for outdoor equipment.

pick up a pair of these touch gloves with a heavy pair of fingerless gloves to cover OR cut the index finger off a think pair. Best of both.

Default Gloves for Aandroid

How about a pair of the white gloves that photographers use to keep smudges off their pictures????

Not very good for outdoor activities but I have to imagine it is difficult to use your Tablet whilst sking.

Just saw two different types at Home Depot of all places. In their front aisle where they put their sale and special items. Don't think any would be as warm as the motorcycle specific ones though.

Lol barely, we have a whole outerwear section full of all kinds of winter gloves, whether it be extreme cold or just mild weather gloves. Quite an assortment of tech gloves too

Costco are selling HEAD mountain bike gloves were you can use a thumb or index finger or both on a touch screen device. I wear them for work and they are a treat. Only £15

I'd ignore the touch-feature, get proper ski gloves and get a stylus pen for your smartphone instead

Should you really be skiing and texting at the same time?

The touch feature of the device is inevitable. I think searching for the right gloves and trying to accommodate to the needs when wearing a glove would be the best resort.
In the end, you wouldn't be on your device every second...or no?

I bought one from DSstyles few months ago. It is at reasonable price and good quality. You can have a try.

The issue I have with the capacitive gloves is that the finger tips are usually too long, and makes it harder to use with precision.
