This might seem a turn from the usual, but these North Face gloves pack in them something that has been around for a while, but not perfected yet. Quite simply, these gloves add to the many other gloves you may have seen out there that allow you to use your touch screen while still wearing the gloves. However, being North Face, these gloves bring to you the same quality and perfection you associate with the brand, and more.
Fit and Feel
Repeating myself here, but being North Face, the gloves bring top quality fabric to snuggly fit around your hands. The gloves pack in North Face’s four-way stretch technology. This means that while they feel a bit tight when you put them on, they fit perfectly around your hands, meaning that all kinds of hand get a well fitted feel, as well as find that protection against the elements you want from a pair of gloves.
I don’t know whether this is part of the design, or just showing off the ‘technology’ but the gloves actually pack in the name and a power button logo, which seem to be reflective. This means that if you use these gloves at night, they allow you better visibility.
This is probably slightly tricky as these are all weather gloves. This means that while they may not be as warm as your woolly gloves, but the specially designed fabric is designed to not only feel comfortable in the colder weather, but also provide protection from wind and the elements in the warmer weather.
This is another quality that these gloves offer that you hardly find in the same range of products. These gloves provide you a good grip, whether you are holding your mobile, a rope, skis, or are just going through your bag to find your keys.
Now to talk business. The E-Tip works as well as you’d expect, and then some. These gloves work not only on touch screens, but also on most touchpads for laptops. Because of the tight fit, the gloves pack in the smallest package possible, allowing you to use your touch screen as if you were not wearing any gloves. Granted, it takes a couple of texts or a few sentences tapping away if you are a hard-core texter, but once you know what you are doing and get used to these gloves, you hardly even notice you are wearing them. It would not be wrong to say that the performance of these gloves was found to be highly impressive.
For about £36 these might seem a bit expensive, but you have to remember that while you are getting a piece of technology, you are also getting a very good pair of gloves. Add that to the fact that these come with the North Face badge, and you are onto a winner here. The gloves can be bought from www.mobilefun.co.uk at the following address:

I have to thank MobileFun for sending these lovely gloves for a review. They provide an excellent choice of accessories that not only cater for mobile phones, but also tablets and e-readers. The gloves can be found under the latest addition of iPad Mini Accessories on their website.
