Rated 3 out of 5 by BasLady Beautiful, but too small
These are lovely gloves. However, they seem to run small; I have always worn a Large. I had to return them. Purchased a different style that came in a the XL size. They're gorgeous but they run small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChicagoLLBeanLover Great gloves
Earlier posters are right: the fingers are a little long. But that doesn't take away from the overall fit or touchscreen usability. They've been great for using my phone on our single-digit days.

Rated 5 out of 5 Superb Quality and Functional
These gloves are amazing. The craftsmanship and quality of materials are fantastic--they even feature true Thinsulation for warmth. The comment that mentioned that the leather on the back of the glove is a different color/finish than the palm--it's true (and very subtle). The back is supple, matte, and a slightly lighter shade of black than the glossier, somewhat stiffer palm. The reason? The *entire* palm of the glove is touchscreen smart! It's treated somehow to conduct your energy throughout. Every other leather glove I have found on the market has a cutout in the leather on the index finger and sometimes the thumb where they inlay conductive threading to allow you to use your smartphone. The reviews of those mention how incredibly cold the "windows" are. I was expecting the same with these, but the leather is uninterrupted and, I believe, it's because of the treatment of the palm-side of the gloves. (I hope this means that, if it's a chemical treatment, it won't wear away over time--but I know LL Bean makes quality stuff and the lifetime satisfaction guarantee ensures I have nothing to fear.)
Originally, I ordered a Large--I asked for LL Bean gift cards for my birthday and every other size was sold out. They were huge, so I traded for Mediums. They fit well enough, but the fingers are too long (causing awkward key fumbling). I just ordered Smalls--I'll hold onto the Mediums and figure which to stick with after noting what others have said about stretching over time. I know it'll be no-fuss to return either.
I love that LL Bean has someone real who instantly picks up your call--it's a wonderful, endearing company that I will be a customer of for life. Thanks for the awesome gloves!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chanciepants Very nice gloves.....but.......
These gloves are very nice. The leather is good quality, they are warm, and they have molded to the shape of my hands. However, the tips of the fingers have a thick seam in them that prevents me from using my touch screen phone while wearing them. I purchased them because they were advertised as being able to do this task with the gloves on. In spite of this issue, I like them enough that I will keep them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AVirtualShopper Awesome Leather Touchscreen Insulated Gloves
Purchased these in a Large and my only wish is that the Women's gloves would be offered in and XL, as my hands are larger with very long fingers.
I purchased the Large and they are tight, but entirely comfortable now that I've broken them in a bit.
These gloves work so well on touchscreens at market check-outs; bank ATMs; and using my mobile phone in cold weather is easy; now that I don't have to take off my gloves to do these tasks.
Fortunately, they do stretch a bit and have become "less stiff" with every wearing..I love the way these gloves HUG the steering wheel, especially at night, in the worst possible rain, driving on a windy, narrow mountain road, my hands felt warm & secure on the wheel! This was an un-anticipated PLUS for purchasing these gloves.
I liked mine so much, that I bought a pair in Medium for my granddaughter, whose 22 years old. At first she thought they looked too formal & she wasn't sure if "the leather look was for her;" but the minute she tried them on they were keepers! She says they are wonderfully warm & when she uses the Commuter bus, she's able to do her texting very easily & efficiently; she loves not having to take off her gloves to do things. So when she's happy, I glad she's happy, as she as very finicky!.

I don't know about the "touchscreen" part because I don't have a smart phone, but the gloves are great anyway...flexible and warm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by beoutside Lovely gloves...if you have long fingers.
The quality of leather and workmanship on these gloves is excellent. However, I always measure as a Medium, which I ordered, but the fingers were too long. Since I was hoping to take advantage of their "textability", etc., I had to return them. I did not exchange for a small since smalls are always too right in the palm for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by afreinaline Love them!
I had another pair of gloves from LL Bean, but they weren't touchscreen compatible. I was a small in those, so I ordered a small in these as well. At first I felt they were too tight and I couldn't make fists easily. But then the leather stretched and they are now a perfect fit. Now I can use my phone without having to take off my gloves! Yay!
Plus they look great too. Simple and elegant. Warm as anything!

Rated 2 out of 5 by cer53 Good idea, not so good fit
These gloves seemed like a great idea. They did work with my touch screen phone, and I liked that. However, the leather on the back of the hand was different than that on the palm. I ordered black, and the color was not dark on the back of the hand. Looked more like a charcoal gray. They seemed to run long in the fingers also, and in the end I decided to return them. It was a constant fight to keep them pulled on very tightly so that the extra leather didn't hang off the fingers.
