It’s almost 2021, and with that in mind, I firmly believe that all gloves should be smartphone-friendly. The world obviously has bigger problems, but I’m not going to end 2020 by ripping off a glove to respond to a text message about my New Year’s plans! That’s why I rounded up the best texting gloves on the market, so we can all enter the new year with this first-world problem eliminated once and for all.

Out of all the seasons, your winter wardrobe requires the most accessories—jackets, hats, scarves, gloves and this year, warm face masks, too. With some many extras to put on before running out the door, you might as well invest in some gloves that aren’t completely frustrating; AKA, ones that allow you to text and scroll IG without freezing your fingers off.

Yes, mittens are adorable, but what isn’t adorable is pulling one off every two seconds to text the person you’re meeting up with. Your hand is exposed to the freezing cold air, and it never really warms back up, does it? Why do that dance if you can just get a pair of affordable tech gloves instead?

Sure, texting gloves weren’t really that cute a few years ago, but now, they’re made by brands we know and love, like Athleta and UGG. There are even some cashmere tech gloves! I’m not kidding. You don’t have to sacrifice style (or warmth) for the ability to respond to a DM or take a selfie.

The five options below all have specialized index fingers and thumbs, so you can scroll at leisure or document your day in winter wonderland for the ‘Gram. Or, you can just use them to start and stop your workout playlist or 10-minute ab workout video on YouTube. Whatever your outdoor tech needs may be, texting gloves are a must.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
