"The shearling lining makes these so cozy and warm." 

"I used these on a 7-mile hike using trekking poles in 50F degrees and rain. They kept my hands warm and dry!"

"These are excellent for all ages. Late teens, young students who like an elegant look, and ladies of all ages will be most appreciative of this thoughtful gift."

"These gloves are super warm, super comfy, and ACTUALLY WORK! I've tried several touchscreen winter gloves, but very few actually work most of the time. These work pretty much 100% of the time."

"When I put these on, they are actually lined and really soft and warm. Another surprise for me was that the touchscreen fingers actually work. I have NEVER had a pair of these gloves that actually work on my phone."

"I bought all three color variations of these. I love them so much!" 

"Very well made gloves! They fit great (which is rare) and the texting ability works well."

"Very warm. Definitely order a size up, they will stretch, but they are tight when they are new."

"They look and feel good, and they match my Canada Goose parka—the perfect matching accessory."

"I’m so happy with these gloves! I bought one in black and one in brown. I ordered my usual size, and they’re a little snug, which is good since they’ll stretch. I tested the gloves on my iPhone, and they work!"

"I bought a few packs of these since I tend to misplace my gloves throughout the winter season. Quick, easy buy."

"I have used these a few times for running, and they keep your hands warm and stay put. If you want to use your phone, you don't need to take the gloves off, as I have found I can use my phone with them on. I would highly recommend them." 
"Soft yet durable, these are very comfortable and easy to do daily tasks in, such as use my phone—and not bulky at all!" 

"I love a longer style to double under my sweaters when it gets super cold." 

"New favorite gloves. I love the look, and they are functional, because they keep my hands warm and you can use touch screens. Isotoner is my favorite brand of gloves. The last pair I had lasted me 20 years."

"I love the look of these and have been wearing them every day since the weather got cold. These are actually great for the transeasonal weather, like right before it gets super freezing." 

"The material allows more flexibility than most leather gloves, and they are similarly stylish and designed so that you can use a smartphone while wearing them."


"Thes are perfect for walks on cold days, and I'm looking forward to wearing them while running." 

"I wanted a cream colored pair of gloves to add to my glove collection, and these are the exact shade I was looking for."

"These are nice, light gloves. I love the features of the Etip and the clasp to keep them together while not in use. The other feature I like is the fact that they have small rubberized grip dots in the index finger, middle finger, and thumb surfaces, which converge in the palm area to help keep a grip on a phone or other slick items."

"I normally do not write reviews, but I thought I should share this excellent product experience with all women! This glove is good for using with touchscreen cell phones. I travel frequently, and oftentimes I have to remove my glove when I access my iPhone and take pictures, but with this glove, I can keep my hands warm while texting or touching my cell phone!"
