Touch screen gloves are an easy and affordable way to solve small daily struggles, such as exposing your hands to the crisp winter air to use your phone.
They differ from ordinary gloves in that they are made of conductive material and have low resistance so as not to prevent the electricity from your fingers transferring to the screen.
This may seem like an insignificant obstacle, however, when it comes to using electronic devices in the arctic or other harsh outdoor environments, touch screen gloves can be a life-saver.
Though there are types suited for heavy duty hiking, biking or outdoor expeditions, there are also more stylish models available for everyday use.
Find below the very best touchscreen gloves on the market, to make using your device in the cold that much easier.
