There's been a huge proliferation of touchscreen-compatible gloves on the market in the past couple of years, but most of them have been liner-weight gloves that don't offer much in the way of warmth or protection. So, someone needed to make a full-on ski glove that could allow us to use our phone on the lift without taking our outer glove off - and thank goodness it was Outdoor Research, with their usual superb fit and superior TouchTec leather.

The Ambit gloves are ski gloves before they are touch-screen gloves, and so they offer all of the features you'd look for on that end, like a waterproof/breathable Ventia insert and enough EnduraLoft insulation to keep you warm all the way down to -15 degrees, depending on the circulation in your hands. The fingers are quite flexible despite the substantial amount of insulation, which is appreciated both when you're gripping a ski pole and when you're tapping away at a tiny screen. 

Most touchscreen gloves have a little bit of conductive thread in the thumb and index finger, and only allow you to use those fingers when operating your device. The TouchTec leather used on the Ambit is conductive everywhere, so you can use all the fingers on your hand - and because the leather wraps all the way around the fingertip, the touchscreen response isn't nearly as picky about the angle at which your finger touches the screen, as it can be with conductive-thread models. 
THE BOTTOM LINE: Superb touchscreen response, integrated into a real ski glove.
