What is a good brand to go with? Anything to avoid?

Eta: they need to be warm too.

If she wants warmth, really look at the thickness. I thought it would be a great idea until I realized how thin the texting glove was. My hands were still cold, so they were really pointless. I think they make them better now.

Marshall's had a whole rack the other day.

They need to fit well, as the pad of your thumb and forefinger need to be over the sensor pads.

I only wear them when I'm expecting to need to text. My hands are small and even the smallest gloves don't fit well. I bought some conductive thread on eBay to make my own. I need to dig that out and try it!

I bought my DH a pair last year. His are thin texting gloves that have a very warm outside mitten shell. He is able to keep his hands covered and warm with the mittens and testing glove liners, then when he needs to use his phone, he pulls off the mitten and is ready to go. I think that they are North Face, I bought them at REI last year.

I also bought a pair of fleece texting gloves at Target last year for a friend. She loves them.

I am not sure about the warmth, we are in an area that will get to the low 30's during the day. We don't get snow or temperatures during the day that are below the 30's. Your area might get more serious winter weather.

I bought some for a friend at Athleta. They are really warm and they were cute and had some reflective strips on them so that the wearer could be seen at night.

Mine are thin, but I wear them with a second glove- the kind that just covers your wrist and the top half of your palm but no fingers. I like that style anyway, and it gives me a lot of flexibility.

I bought a pair at Walmart for under $10. They are thin but are great for texting and for using the touch screen in my car. I don't wear them if I'm going to play outside

Isotoner makes a bunch of different kinds all of which are warm 'cause they are Isotoner after all. Mine are several years old but I love them and wear them all the time.

I second the isotoner gloves! I have had mine for a couple of years. They are warm and have held up really well! I wear them all the time (except if I am shoveling the snow)

Considering it would never even occur to her to shovel snow I will look at the Isotoner ones. Warmth is probably more important although, again, she may disagree.

Thanks

I got some at Gordman's yesterday. They were the thin cheap kind. This year, they seem to be everywhere! Depending what she's doing, warm is relative. I don't play in the snow with this type of glove, just need them to cut the wind and cold while walking into work, shopping, etc.

I have really expensive ones from Nordstrom.
I have a pair from Uniqlo I think I paid $9.
I have a pair that I got for 99 cents at Target.

I swear they all work the same. They all just work.

I really like my Isotoner ones. They are warm enough for me. I am not outdoorsey in the winter but they are fine for running around.

Interesting. I thought this thread would be full of people saying how they didn't work. I tried on two pairs at Macys last week (don't remember brands, sorry) and neither worked. Although I could swipe with my finger, texting was impossible because it was full of errors with the fat glove fingers. I'll try another kind - but maybe it's just me??

Good idea!

I have a pair of isotoner ones that are fairly warm and are texting gloves. Got them at walmart for $12.

OK, I get it now.

But, I live in the warmer part of Texas and when I read the thread title, my first reaction was, WTH are texting gloves?

Aggie, I guess now that I reread the title, I agree with you. LOL

You learn something new everyday. Never heard of texting gloves before. Interesting!

I tried a pair on at The North Face store the other day. I liked them better than my current isotoner ones. Didn't look at the price, but they are probably much more expensive. They fit my hands better though, and I think they had a couple of different styles that varied in terms of warmth.

I want to find some warm ones too. I don't play outside a lot but every week while dd has her riding lessons, I usually play on my phone while I wait for her. It's cold-it was 30 out today and we're just getting started. I have some fingerless gloves with a mitten cover but poking my fingers out is cold.
