I ordered these gloves for my husband. He is a creature of habit and has worn the " Isotoner knit-lined Spandex gloves" for many years, but they were out of stock so I ordered this style for him. This glove has the right amount of stretch, it was comfy, and he liked the style. He stepped outside the box!
Was looking for simple black touch screen gloves. After measuring my hand, I ordered a medium as I have pretty average-sized hands for a guy. The smarTouch feature seemed to work pretty well, but it was too small. Ordered a large, also too small. I mailed back both pairs today.
I like to go "off list" for Christmas and surprise people with gifts that I think they would like. I bought these for my nephew, who works in Washington DC and does most of his e-mailing and texting while on the Metro in the morning. He loved them! Now I need to get a pair for myself!

I received a pair of the Isotoner 2.0 smarTouch Tech gloves at Christmas and I am very disappointed. They do not work a lick with my smartphone. I also tried them on my wife's Iphone 4.s and they don't work on it either. They are the same as any other pair of gloves where I have to take them off to answer calls, send texts or any function on my Galaxy Slll. Basically they are a very expensive pair of gloves that don't live up to the billing.
The touch-screen pads work pretty well, but you lose some dexterity. When I ordered these, a leather option wasn't available, so that was disappointing. The sizing was good, except there should be size options for long vs short fingers!
Excellent gloves with excellent fit..innovative & good looking.

Bought these for my son. He is absolutely so pleased with them. Great for warmth while being so useful for using his IPhone frequently in his work. He said he loves not having frozen fingers while trying to take care of business on the go!
I received two pairs of these gloves for Christmas, the leather men's version and the fleece lined version. The idea behind the gloves is great, but the main issue I'm having is with the placement of the touch sensor in the index finger.
The natural finger placement on a smart phone is just off center of the tip towards the middle finger. These gloves require you to twist your hand unnaturally towards the opposite direction. If you're a righty, it would be similar to turning a doorknob counter-clockwise.
The other problem is that the fingertips feel very different from the rest of the glove on the inside. This is a minor quibble, although it makes for a rather distracting experience.
All in all, great idea, poor product design. Wait for a better, updated version.
Bot these for my son and husband. They both use their Iphones a lot and I thought these would be great this time of year. They absolutely loved them. Tried them on immediately and was very impressed---they worked exactly as they were supppose to!
