There are three boxes that need to be ticked when it comes to gloves as far as I’m concerned – stylish, warm/cosy and tech friendly (i.e. I can text/access my MP3 player without having to remove them). Just by looking at the picture, it’s obvious these Tec Touch iPod Gloves only fulfil two of the three. So if you’re all about style and geek chic, you’re advised to move on – these gloves have definitely not been designed for you.
Remember those bulky masculine gloves your mum would put on you and expect you to still have movement in your fingers? Well if you’re desperate to regress to such a time (minus you mum licking a tissue and cleaning your face with it) these gloves are perfect. They’ve got the bulky 80s look down, accompanied by a variety of unflattering colours (black, java and charcoal). The only good thing about them is you can prod and control your iPod with the gel pads on the forefinger and thumb, rather than tapping pointlessly in the hope you’ve hit the right button.
