Fashionable Touchscreen Gloves: Text With Style and Warmth

If you hail from colder climes, then you likely can't text outside from October until March — at least, not without some protection. Touchscreen gloves are a great way to keep using your phone outside, and function oftentimes trumps fashion in that market. But we've found some stellar style options that'll stand out and make your hands feel like they won the lottery.

If you're more into function than form, then check out our roundup of the best touchscreen gloves.


Burberry check wool and leather

These checkered wool gloves from Burberry are the perfect way to keep your hands warm, while remaining fashionable and still able to text. They're sort of like driving gloves, with their flared cuff and sheep leather palms. They're also lined with 100% cashmere, for the utmost in luxury.

Barney's New York Tech-Smart suede gloves

These fine suede gloves from Barney's come in black, blue, and "open", which is a dark, rich brown (my favorite).

Gizelle Renee Theodore Gentlemen's Wooly Glove

If the leather or suede looks don't tickle your fancy, then check out these wool gloves by Gizelle Renee. They have a contrast leather trim, which stands out from the sandy colored wool and adds an accent of sophistication.

The bespoke velcro fastener adds a standout accent as well, and the wrist features elastic, so you can tighten it as much as you like and still feel like you can move your wrists around.

  • I use a few brands but my most recent pair is from North Face. Great when coaching on sidelines. I have my lineup and keep track of score and fouls.
  • Where is the list of affordable touchscreen gloves? Almost all of these are over $100 with one over $400.
  • Exactly
  • I want a review of the touch screen gloves available in 7-1`1 stores.
  • Most affordable gloves are those you already have, paired with a stylus :) Answering a phone may be a bit more difficult, but everything else, texting and playing games, is way more precise.
    I'd like to see Pokémon Go played with these touchscreen gloves :D
  • Isn't this what voice controls are for? OK google
  • I'm going to try the mujjo gloves...I've been looking for some nice touch screen gloves
  • Most phones have glove mode or you can manually turn up sensitivity.
  • One of the kids got me a set of bluetooth gloves for Christmas, with a speaker in the finger tip and microphone in the cuff, along with media controls. Have not tried it out yet, as I'm not sure I want to walk around with my finger in my ear, lol. Between the S7 Edge, iPhone 6S Plus, and HTC in my collection, the HTC easily is the most sensitive screen. I can use my fingernail if I want to, which the other two are not responsive enough to recognize.
  • So kind of a weird thing but the Gizelle Renee link keeps taking me to NSFW pop up ads..Just thought someone should know
  • Same. Starts to load page but then goes to NSFW site. What the heck?
  • Anyone remember when Samsung included a glove touchscreen option? Few other manufacturers had it too. Note 3 and Note 4 had a toggle to increase screen sensitivity and I could use any pair of gloves I owned with the screen, feature was removed in the Note 5 and I nearly returned the phone because of it.
