Winter has arrived full force and with it, the variety of gloves and mittens to keep those hands warm. One company I have discovered, Freehands, carries several kinds of gloves that allow for usage of touch phones and tablets. They offer different materials, such as basic wool and even leather, for both men and women. I had the opportunity to review an attractive and colorful wool glove with removable forefinger and thumb caps and another pair of basic black unisex gloves with conductive tips on all fingers.

The gloves have silver plated polyamide tips on all fingers for the purpose of using your chosen device without freezing your hands. The tips of each finger are sewn squarely, instead of the usual rounded, making the tops a bit too big for my own fingers. When I tried to use my tablet, repeated touches to the screen did nothing, unless I pulled the glove tightly around one or two fingers. Those attempts were significantly more successful, although I still had to use some extra force against the touchscreen. Keeping the tip pulled back and tight-fitted around my finger also
As you use your selected device outside in the cold, you do not constantly pushing back the covers from getting in the way as you type. The covers attach to the back of your finger with magnets! The magnets are thin and sewn inside. You can barely see them.
I would definitely switch out my plain black leather gloves for the colorful, finger pop-top gloves during this winter season. The Power Stretch gloves are just as useful, but not quite as attractive for a fashionista like me. My husband gets to use them 🙂
