I love the fleece for the warmth and the touchscreen is a real plus

from Humble, Texas
I had a pair before that did not have the touchscreen and I wore them totally out. These gloves are very comfortable to wear for extended time and they are not bulky and so very warm. I love the grip on the palm.
Why I purchased: Fit, Warmth, Function, Comfort, fitted
I hate to give such a poor review because we love Isotoners. I ordered the Kelly Green for my wife and they arrived different than depicted on the website. The website shows the Kelly Green with dark/black on the palm inner side and they arrived green on the palm side. Very disappointing. This was a big reason she selected this color since she works with her hands and didn't want them looking dirty so quickly. We did the measurement exactly as instructed and they are large on her. Another disappointment since these are touch and need to be a good fit on the fingertips to work properly. Now its the inconvenience of returning and her waiting another week for her gloves. Customer service gave me a coupon code for a new order and I'm returning the first order on my dime and time.
Why I purchased: Fit, Warmth, Function, Comfort, dark colored palms!
I got a pair with only the index finger and thumb active for phone last year and loved them. I don't need the third finger active, but still love the gloves. The grip is excellent, as is the touch sensitivity.
When I first opened the package I was disappointed to discover that the top non-fleece portion felt and sounded like flimsy cardboard. I ordered a M/L, yet there was still plenty of room at the fingertip, , yet they were tight around the base of the thumb. The gloves don't seem to breathe well, as my hand seemed to get sweaty very easily (I usually always have cold hands, too!). And when outside at -16 f for less than a minute my fingertips became very cold. I'm returning this product and sticking with the hybrid convertible fingerless gloves that I liked from last season.
Why I purchased: not warm, not breathable, uncomfortable, rough material
I bought an XL because I looked at the size chart and my hand measured around 8.5. So I when I got them they were really small. My mom who is petite (5'1) fit her pretty well and she probably would have bought a small or medium. For me, they are comfortable but I think the touch pads should cover the whole tip not just the middle. The index and thumbs with the smart touch thing was very narrow. It made the tips very pointy. I wouldn't really buy these again unless a larger size is made. I recommend buying a size up, if possible.
These gloves are a nice thickness, but the fingers (with the touch pads) twist a bit when you put the gloves on, and don't lay flat, making it hard to type. If you have a L/XL hand measurement, err toward the XL size glove, or they will be too small.
This is my second purchase of Isotoner smart touch gloves. I bought a second pair because I have enjoyed my first pair so much. These gloves have I am continuing to enjoy my gloves with their warm lining and the ability to use these gloves on my android phone and kindle fire.
