Rated1out of5byfromDo not buy these!My experience was exactly like the first reviewer. After maybe 8 washes (no dryer) one seam came apart, then another and then another. Ridiculous! Took them back to the store and the receiving guy called them "liner" gloves - maybe like that mean't they shouldn't stand up to such "tough" duty. I mentioned that why would they have the "touch screen" finger pad if they were "liner" gloves. He said, "We'll, you take off the gloves and use the "liner" gloves to use your smartphone". Uh, huh....... Yea, I just wanted a refund. Nowhere are these called "liner" gloves.

Rated1out of5byfromBad seamsI've had these gloves for just about a month now and have used them for running and commuting since it has gotten a little chilly here in Chicago, but not cold enough for a heavier glove. I wanted something that was touch screen compatible so that I could still use my phone with them on while on the train, and these seemed to fit the bill. Oops. The right glove seam where the thumb and index figer come together popped on my way to work this morning. If I wanted a glove with a hole in it, I'd have bought fingerless ones. So if you're looking for a pair of gloves that are touch screen compatible, spend a little more money and buy some with better seam stitching so you don't wind up with a busted pair of these... which by the way have also started pilling like crazy.
