reviewed: fraas iphone gloves

Last winter I realized that having an iPhone glove as part of my winter wardrobe changed from novelty to necessity. Though I had plenty of gloves to choose from, I was only wearing the pairs I could actually use my phone in.

Thankfully many manufactures have expanded their lines to offer these gloves with conductivity thread woven in the fingertips.

The pair I'm reviewing is from the Germany company FRAAS, and retail for about $30.

They are a knit glove of a cotton/poly/acrylic blend, and the thumb, index, and middle finger of each glove are woven with the conductivity thread. Most iPhone gloves only have two fingers with touch screen functionality, so having the third was a plus. I always use my index and middle fingers to zoom in and out.

Another nice feature is that the fingertips almost perfectly match the rest of the glove, so they just look like normal gloves and don't shout "iPhone glove!" in that unnecessary manner their silver tipped brethren do.

The gloves also feature a cute ruffle around the wrist, and did keep my hands pretty warm.

My one complaint is that the gloves are one size fits all, and these were too big for my hands. This is unfortunate because your finger must reach the tip of the glove for them to work properly. Every time I wanted to use my phone I did have to pull up the glove. With the proper fit, you can enjoy complete phone functionality.

You can find these FRAAS gloves at specialty stores or you can call to order them from the company at 212-575-0191.

Haha, I love that they don't shout "iPhone gloves!" 'cause those kinds of gloves are so obvious and usually not that warm. But these looks so super warm, like a scarf for your fingers. How nice! Sorry to hear they didn't fit you just right, though. I have the same problem with gloves--I have these long skinny weird fingers that a size small can't even house sometimes.

But hey, you're still lookin' sharp. That scarf is AMAZING and looks uber cozy. You just look uber cozy in general.

I was thinking about getting a pair of those gloves for my friend for Christmas but I wasn't sure how well they work. Thanks for that, sweetie. Btw: I love your cozy scarf! Muah

Ooh that is good that the fingertips match! That's the one thing I don't like about my gloves. But I love how bright and happy mine are, ha ha

I was sent a pair, too, and also, wish they came in a smaller size. However, they do look great!

tech gloves are essential now. I just use a convertible pair though.

I've been wanting to try gloves like those for awhile. And I so love your scarf!

I love the fact that the gloves have ruffles and no gray colored fingertips...too bag they were too big! I love the mix of patterns with the great scarf and the stripes.

They are cute and it is good to know they work though it is a shame that they only come in one size!

Lindsay said...

I'm with the people above - I totally love that scarf. I keep looking at iPhone gloves and haven't yet found a pair that I like enough to buy. I love the little ruffles on this pair. Thanks for the info!

I have pretty long fingers and I feel like I have that problem with touch screen gloves, too. These are pretty though. I hate how... I don't know, but I just don't like the way a lot of the touch screen gloves look.

Also this scarf is amazingly long. I'm jealous.

Gloves that work for a touchscreen are amazinggggg!

These gloves are actually a pretty brilliant idea - I don't very often check my phone when I'm outside, but if I had to wait for a bus every day, I'm pretty sure they'd make my life complete :) I love your red coat; such a statement piece!
xox,

Mica said...

I thought about getting tech-friendly gloves this year but I didn't. I'm sure I'll cave and get them next year though! I like the ones you got--the ruffle is so pretty (and so is that scarf!).

You look so cozy all bundled up. Too bad the glove is too big (you must have small hands). They look so warm.
