    hey guys does anyone know where to get this pair of gloves?? i bought some today from the north face store but i might need a bigger size and i cant find them anywhere online and they were out of them in the store..

    these gloves have some magnetic strip or something on the thumb and index finger tips so you can use iphone with them on

    :O these would be awesome for winter time. I hate taking off my gloves to use my phone.

    I got mine from moosejaw.com. There's a whole thread in the accessories forum on these gloves and where to buy them.

    Personally, they work great, but I think they're too thin. If the temperature is below 30 degrees (F) or so my hands are still cold. Other gloves I have keep me much warmer, but don't work with the iPhone. I also ordered a pair of Dots and after it took them 2 months to get here, they don't work with the Ivyskin Quattro T4 case. So those are going to be sold very soon since the Dots people refuse to help me or answer emails.

    I have a pair, they work great. I live in Syracuse, last week it was in the single digits with wind chill below zero.

    I hate having cold hands. They are thin, but they did keep my hands warm for the most part, my fingers tips were a little cold, but kept them warm enough.

    My hands get VERY cold in general, so I typically need a heavier glove. These don't really work all that great for me. I was in Breckenridge a couple weeks ago and it was well below zero (before wind chill) while I was walking around town and my hands were freezing. It's just how I am. (You know what they say, cold hands, warm heart, lol). But I agree that they're a great glove, even for the price. If you're a person with generally cold hands like me, you should take note that these are thin though.

    are the fingers in both hands capable of working or does it choose for you?

    I know this is an old thread, but since it's been resurrected...

    I bought a similar pair of gloves (different brand name) at Costco a month or so ago... I think they were less than $12. If anyone's interested...

    I've had gloves like this for a year now, from a different brand. Got them from ebay, lets me use my iPhone and keeps my hands warm.

    Not sure about North Face, but REI has a few good ones.

    And for light weight/dressier gloves, Isotoner has some great ones.

    This website (180s) has some great ones. I bought some for my brother who works outdoors in Illinois.

    I've read that about the original e-tip glove too. It looks like North Face is introducing the e-tip feature into more gloves this year, including the Pamir Windstopper gloves, which should be pretty warm.

    Looks nice but these gloves wouldnt keep your hands warm.

    The fabric is simply:
    shell: stretch knit

    Probably a nice cool Autumn glove but not for cold winters.

    Do you have a link to the gloves at Costco Heather? Or are they an in-store only item? I haven't seen them at the local Costco near me, but I would be interested.

    Had these last winter. Just a warning guys, their not water proof! So if its raining or snowing hard and you just plowed your car out. Your gloves will be soaked and freezing. Can't really use them with your iphone after that :(

    Yeah, I bought a pair of them too at our local Costco, just the other day.

    Here's the name. Not sure if they're only in-store.

    Head Multi-Sport Gloves with SensaTEC

    They're not really winter gloves but they work ok...
