Isotoner SmarTouch Gloves Review and Giveaway

How many times have you been outside in the cold and received a text message that you tried to answer while wearing gloves? It happens to me all the time. I receive a message and I try to answer and instead of "Hi, how are you?", it comes out as "hji, hyuw yuu?" Since that would clearly be ridiculous to send, I have to take my glove off to properly answer, and then my hand hits the frigid cold air and I grimace. It's a vicious cycle, but thankfully Isotoner has come to my rescue.



Isotoner, headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, is the world's largest marketer of umbrellas, gloves, rainwear, rubber overshoes, and other weather-related accessories.

When I think of gloves, Isotoner is truly the first brand that comes to mind. I've had various Isotoner umbrellas over the years and they are fantastic too. All of Isotoner's products are quality made and created to last. I love their brand!

An Isotoner product that I just found out about is their SmarTouch gloves. I wondered how I had never had them or heard about them before!


These gloves are truly needed in my life. The gloves for men or women, are designed with Isotoner stretch fabrics for proper fingertip fit. The gloves use a conductive thread embroidered on the index fingers and thumbs that sends an electrical impulse to touchscreen devices. This allows uninterrupted typing and texting in the cold! Now you'll never worry about how you'll answer a friend or family member outside in the cold!

The gloves are meant for any touchscreen smartphones, ATM's, GPS units, Mp3 players and more.

(An example of someone wearing the Smartouch gloves while using an iPad.)

The gloves fit me really well and truly like a glove! They seem almost made just for my hand. The gloves are very comfortable and have a nice non-slip grip woven-like design on the back. You won't be dropping your phone or iPod again! The blue and black colors are nice and go with winter nicely. The gloves are very warm inside and will keep my hands toasty when I'm outside. I used these gloves yesterday when I had to run an errand. Normally when I use gloves with my ipod I try and select a song or singer that I'd like to hear, but the one above or below it comes on instead. It's hard to control my iPod while wearing gloves. I get frustrated and have to take off my gloves and then my hand freezes which is annoying.

I was able to select exactly what I wanted without fail. I really liked not having to take off my gloves and my favorite music played through my headphones! I was able to control the volume to the exact amount of loudness that I desired too. I am really impressed with these gloves and I know that my hands will able to stay warm when I'm outside and want to use my electronic devices. Thank you to Isotoner for keeping me frost-bite free outside! ;)
