It’s time to face the sad reality that winter’s right around the corner, and very soon, we won’t be able to go outside without gloves on. Everyone knows how annoying it is to have to remove your gloves and risk getting frostbite in order to respond to a text. This is why you need touch screen gloves for the season, and here’s a selection that caters to your different needs.

 

MUJI Wool Mix Touch Panel Gloves

We’ll start with one of the most affordable options that offers a good bang for your buck. These wool blend gloves are offered in 3 colors from the Japanese retailer MUJI. The tips of the thumb, middle, and index fingers are touchscreen friendly and they’re made with a mixture of material. They probably won’t be the warmest gloves out there, but they’re simple and elegant, and it won’t be the end of the world if you lose them.

The Glider Gloves

Another affordable option, this pair comes with conductive copper in the yarn, making it so that every touch registers. You can use any part of your hand to tap, swipe, zoom, and use all of your fingers rather than just the tips. With a soft brushed lining and textured silicone grip areas on the palm and fingers, your phone is ensured not to slip from your hand.

 

They are not waterproof and they’re not particularly thick, so they won’t be warm enough for extremely cold weather. They’re potentially not the best overall gloves, but for the price point it’s a pretty good deal.

These are one of the best touchscreen gloves out there that offer both warmth and usefulness. They allow you to easily unlock your phone, type at a decent speed, and answer calls because every touch registers. These Mujjo gloves include rubber strips that improve grip. There is a double-insulated version available if the weather is really chilly.  Although not waterproof, these gloves can weather snowstorms without having your fingers freeze.

Moshi Digits Touchscreen Gloves

Moshi’s Digits are excellent if knitted gloves are your preference. You can type very accurately while wearing these gloves because they are warm and comfortable and have good touchscreen capabilities, allowing you to utilize all of your fingers and thumbs.  Moshi has wavy-patterned rubber strips to improve grip, which is essential given how slippery knitted fabric usually is.

Kent Wang Deerskin Gloves

And we’ll end with the fancy leather gloves. You can’t really beat leather gloves when it comes to warmth in the winter. These look great, and they offer immaculate accuracy when it comes to touch screen compatibility.  The cashmere lining and traditional style of the Kent Wang deerskin gloves set them apart.

 

It could be more difficult to find the right fit with the Kent Wang gloves because they are sold in certain sizes and leather is usually less flexible than knit and fleece, but that’s really the only downside.
