Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing ones. While we’ve written about the best gloves for men and the best winter gloves and mittens for women, our search for the best winter gloves wouldn’t be complete without a listing of the best touchscreen gloves that you can find on Amazon — ones that let you tap and scroll even when you can’t feel your face anymore. To cover all your bases, see Select All’s lineup of outstanding touchscreen gloves here.
Touchscreen gloves for women
“These gloves are perfection! Soft, supple and incredibly rich looking leather lined with soft warm cashmere. Elegance personified. I’m seriously considering purchasing a new winter coat because the one I have won’t do justice to these these beautiful accessories. I have other gloves purchased in department stores at the same price range, and there is no comparison in quality. FYI: I measured my hand according to the sizing instructions and the fit is perfect. The touch screen fingertips worked very well on my iPhone.”
“These gloves keep my hands very warm on my early morning runs. The fabric is thicker than my other running gloves with soft fleece inside. The finger tips work well on my phone’s screen. The palms have small decorative snow flakes that are made of a nonslip material which keeps my phone from slipping out of my hand. I ordered a small and they are perfect for my hands. I am five-foot-three with fairly small hands. The gloves do not have a knitted cuff which makes them easy to pull on and take off. With these gloves and my Trailhead hat, I stay toasty warm on winter runs. So far these are the most comfortable and warm running gloves I have owned.”
“Love these gloves. Lost my other three-year-old pair and bought two pairs to replace them just in case. Great fit and works well with touchscreen. These are thin gloves with minimal warmth but perfect for driving and I use them for backcountry snowshoeing when anything heavier is too warm once I get going. Bought my stepdaughter a pair and she wears them as a liner in other gloves when she is snowboarding.”
“I was looking for a pair of nice winter gloves that are warm, but not too thick to drive with. I also wanted the e-tip finger so I wouldn’t have to remove the gloves to interact with my phone screen. Well I lucked up with these gloves! They are stylish, soft, warm and the e-tip works better than any gloves I have ever owned.”
“Love these gloves so much I bought them in black and then gray! I got tired of buying cheap dollar store cotton synthetic gloves that were thin and didn’t keep my hands warm. Especially since moving to the East Coast, I knew I needed to upgrade. These gloves fit all my criteria: smartphone gloves with a fleece lining and understated style. I would only recommend wearing these if you’re only outside in snowy/freezing weather in short bursts of time. It occasionally hits 30 or lower during the winter in Maryland and these were perfect during my 15 minute walks to work. Any longer or colder I would get thicker stuff. Overall, I’d recommend if you’re looking for trendy but functional gloves for a moderate winter.”
“Gorgeous, gorgeous gloves. I’m in love. These feel like they should have cost twice as much. They’re just unusual enough to add an unexpected throw-back flair to any jacket where you can show them off (like a wrap-style or wide-armed coat), and warm enough to work beautifully as driving gloves on a frigid steering wheel. Speaking of which, they’re long enough to keep you covered if your coat’s sleeves ride up when you’re reaching forward to drive. Get these, fall in love, feel like Audrey Hepburn, look like a million bucks.”
The best touchscreen gloves for men
“These are really nice gloves! Better than I expected. I bought them for myself, but if you are giving them as a gift they come in a beautiful box and packaging, very impressive luxury type gift box. The leather looks to be high quality and the cashmere lining is soft and should keep my hands warm. I tested these with my phone and the touchscreen feature works great. Highly recommend these gloves!”
“I bought these as a replacement for my first pair of running gloves that were getting holes in them from wear and tare. I absolutely love these just as gloves when it’s a tad chilly out or on my run when it’s cold out. You can easily still use an iPhone with these gloves due to the textured fingertips. Great overall look and feel and are useful!”
“Took me a while to find what I wanted for ‘glove liners’ — thinner gloves I could wear under my big ones, that I could use with my phone while keeping my hands protected from frigid temps. I’ve tried a lot of terrible ones and finally these work. They keep my hands warm enough I can take my big gloves off to use my phone briefly without having to expose my skin to the cold. Used them up in the NM mountains at single digit temps several times now and they’re still holding up.”
“Let me start by saying I am writing this review in the Amazon app WHILE WEARING THE GLOVES. I use my phone constantly and I wanted to be able to continue to do so while staying warm on the slopes. Is it taking longer than normal? Yes, but I’m okay with it.”
