Good Quality, Unique, But Flawed
March 15, 2012

I really like these gloves. They are the best thing I've found for operating a touchscreen smartphone while wearing gloves. The only downside, though, is the construction of the fingers. The pinkie finger is too long and feels really awkward. The way the fingertips are constructed makes them unnecessarily pointy, too. I'd prefer for them to be more rounded.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: finger construction

Nice gloves but not perfect...
June 24, 2012

I purchased these gloves because I wanted some warm gloves that would allow me to operate a smartphone without taking off the gloves. By those criteria, the gloves are fine -- they are nicely warm, comfortable and work very well with a touch screen (less so with tiny buttons). Quality of construction is good also. Unfortuntely, fit is another story -- I normally wear X-Large gloves and I purchased these in that size. Way too big! Returned for Large size and the fit was better but still not great. The fundamental problem with the fit is that the thumb and little finger are much too long. Look at your hand, palm up and all fingers together -- notice that your little finger ends near the end joint of your ring finger and your thumb ends near the base of your index finger. In the original photos of the glove, the little finger is almost as long as the ring finger and the thumb extends well past the base of the index finger. When wearing the gloves, this is particularly annoying with the thumb -- it is very hard to manage small objects such as zippers and so on. I wanted these gloves to work, so I ended up having them altered by a local outdoor gear repair shop. Acceptable results but not as nice as it would be if the gloves were properly designed in the first place. See attached photo of the glove after alteration. My other dissatisfaction relates to the logo on the knuckles of the glove -- "printed" with an "ink" that is rubbery and has a high degree of "stickyness" -- it makes it difficult to slide the gloves in/out of your pocket because the logo sticks to the pocket lining. Would I recommend these gloves -- Well, Maybe ... (with reservations).

Nice glove, but bulky
October 21, 2012

I wanted to love this glove like most others reviewers have, but I did return it mainly because it didn't suit my needs while running. The glove itself is warm and fits great, but they are bulky. This means when you use your iPod/iPhone it's hard to be accurate with your finger tips. Granted most of the time if you are running all you really need to do is swipe to answer your phone, but dialing can be a chore in these. I think for any other purpose for running these would be great.

Works as Designed...
November 30, 2011

I have been looking for a glove that would work with my touchscreen devices and chose to go with the OR Sensor rather than others that I had seen. One thing that sold me was that the Sensor is actually active as the whole palm of the glove (including all of the fingers). As I understand it, the E-Tip (The North Face), is only active on the thumb and forefinger so the Sensor actually gives you the functionality on any finger on the glove. The glove itself feels warm and I didn't recognize any wind cutting through it but time will tell. I've read a couple of reviews where that was a pain point for others. I do have a couple of issues with the glove though. First, the sizing seems a bit small. I have an athletic build, with long fingers and not necessarily large (round) fingers and the gloves seem a little snug. I was kind of surprised when I first tried them on after receiving them. Second, they are really stiff. So stiff that they feel clunky when I'm using my iPhone so I have to be careful about hitting the correct buttons. There is NO WAY that I could text with these things on at the moment. I can navigate through the phone and apps fine at the moment and make calls but texting would be a challenge. I do think that once they are broken in a little bit with some good wear and tear that they will function better and be more operable. I'm looking forward to them in the dead of Midwest winter. Overall, I'd recommend them for an avid iPhone/touchscreen device user such as myself. I have no experience with other products though to compare them with.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost, sizing, stiff at first

OR Touch Screen Sensor Gloves ROCK!
December 31, 2011

Normally I do not write reviews, but I felt that these gloves were so awesome that I would take the time. AND, as a matter of fact, I am wearing them right now and typing this review! I received these gloves as a gift for Xmas and I can't tell you how impressed I am with them. I have owned touch screen gloves from The North Face, Isotoner and 180s. By far, these gloves are the BEST I have ever used. Unlike ALL the other gloves that only offer functionality in the forefinger and thumb, these work with all fingers. Yes folks, you heard it right, ALL Fingers work perfectly. Sometimes I like to go outside during the winter to get some fresh air and will use my iPad to return email, blog, etc. Unless you "like" to hunt and peck, it is actually pretty annoying to type on the iPad keyboard with only two fingers working. Well, that is no longer an issue. I would say Outdoor Research knocked it out of the park on this one. Bottom line. Are the gloves warm? YES, VERY. Are the gloves comfortable? YES. Are the gloves well-constructed? YES. Do they work well with all my iOS devices... LIKE A DREAM! Would I recommend them? In a second. Would I give them as a gift? Already have. Sent from my iPad...

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
