My old gloves had been well used due to the cold British weather and worn out. Now with my iPhone, camera & iPod being touchscreen devices, I wanted compatible gloves so I no longer needed to remove a glove just to answer the phone. A good friend recommended I try the North Face brand so I went to their UK store in London’s Covent Garden to check out the current glove collection.
Gloves are pretty essential winter kit here in London so The North Face E-Tip Glove is an fantastic bit of technology and winter wear. A form fitting, four-way stretch glove, the E-Tip gives you maximum dexterity for use with touchscreen devices such as phones and click-wheel gadgets like the old iPod. All brands of Smartphones, tablets, GPS and MP3 players can all be used without the need for removing a glove and freezing your fingers in the process.
The silicone grip pattern has been added to give the glove great grip abilities across the palm. Whatever you need to grip a phone, iPod or camera or something more adventurous such as – handlebars, ropes, poles, a dog lead, horse reins, ice axes, your après ski drink – will never slip loose again.
The etip glove is a light weight glove so in really cold conditions The North Face E-Tip Glove is ideal as a liner under your winter gloves: no need to freeze your fingers when you stop to answer your phone. In less frozen conditions, they can be worn solo to take the chill out of the air.
