Texting, now accessible in the winter

This post isn't a typical fashion post. I came across something so genius that I had to share!! Who has been in this situation- it's freezing cold and your cell phone rings, what do you do? a) ignore it because it's too cold to take your gloves off to answer it. b) take time to get your gloves off, hunt for your phone and then miss the call because it took too long to answer. c) keep your gloves on, hunt for your phone, answer the phone and send a text a to your friend. If you answered c, then you must have come across one of the fabulous touch friendly gloves that are out on the market now.

You may be asking- how does it work? Well, the long and short of it is that a conductive thread is used to sew the gloves or fingertips. Here's a link to Agloves "Science Behind the Gloves" for more information.

There are many companies out there that offer "touch screen friendly" gloves. Inc. magazine did a comparative of three popular gloves, giving Agloves 3 out of 3 stars. In addition to the 3 mentioned in the article, there are Burton (the ski gear company), offers glove liners, and Isotoner, to name a couple more.

Stay warm and text away!!

But, PLEASE for your safety and the safety of others, text responsibly, do not text and drive.
