    Default Riding gloves for smartphones?

    I know there are winter gloves made with special fibers so you can use a touchscreen with them on, but does anyone make riding gloves that will work this way?

    SSG recently came out with "Cell Mate" (not sure this is really the best product name...)

    I don't think these are winter weight - just their normal aquasuede material.

    Ooh, perfect, thanks!

    I don't need winter weight (doesn't get that cold here), just wanted gloves I could ride in and use the phone too. Sometimes I ride to the music on my phone.

    My basic SSG's that come in all the colors do okay with my iPhone. It's not perfect, but I can text while riding.

    Heritage and Kerrits gloves have styles that are smart phone friendly. They have a sticker on the packaging.

    I believe Heritage has other styles that are touch screen friendly.

    I bought some Head gloves from costco that are for winter runners. Very comfy, warm and I can use my smart phone. I thing I paid $7 for them.

    I bought special normal winter gloves two years ago for the smartphone. I didn't feel that they worked all that much better to justify the cost, and honestly I ended up using a different pair of winter gloves that I liked more most of the time. So I'd make sure I like the gloves for their own sake before purchasing them for phone use.
