I got these for my dad for Christmas and he loves them. They had a cold snap right after he got them and he said he couldn't feel the wind at all.

Great Glove

I gave these to my uncle for Christmas, because he really needed new winter gloves. They are perfect for shoveling snow, or any winter activity. They are pretty warm and the touch screen compatibility on them is also awesome. They fit him perfectly, and were true to size.


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I initially bought these as a gift for my dad because it's been snowing a lot and he didn't have good gloves for shoveling the driveway. I tried them on soon after buying them however and kind of fell in love with them... so we are sharing them! They fit him a little better, but for the little things I'm using them for like shoveling or scraping of my car or going on a hike, they work just great. I love the fabric and I can get a great grip with these things!

I bought these gloves being the previous reviews and expected a whole lot more. The "Etip" feature works now and again but is NOWHERE near ready to allow you to use a phone completely. You can maybe swipe at things and kind of take a picture, but don't expect to be replying to messages with your gloves on. Also, I found that once your hands get the slightest bit wet, whether it be from outside or simply from sweating, trying to get the gloves back on alone is a painstaking task. And once any moisture got inside the glove it was like putting your foot into a wet sock. I was very surprised having read all the reviews, but I personally was not happy with the glove, especially as I have never had any bad experiences with North Face in the past.

I initially had a hard time using it with my Iphone but once I got it I was sending texts no problem and just as fast as without gloves on. Takes some practice but I enjoy being able to use my phone without taking my gloves off. I have HUGE hands too. XL! i find using the side tips of my big hands work best. These gloves are pretty sweet for what they are IMO.

great apex etip glove!

Had an old pair of apex gloves that was on its last leg so decided to upgrade with these ones. Goes great with any apex jacket Northface sells. Especially the black versions. Was able to use my iPhone6s no problem. I have huge hands so it's bit of a learning curve but I'm getting it. I wear this with my apex bionic jacket. Now all I need is an apex hat, pants, and shoes, socks, and underwear and my apex suit will be complete and I can fly off into the sunset apexed out!!! Overall they are great casual gloves with apex material. Thx Backcountry for getting it to me quickly and hassle free!

Super warm

I bought these gloves to use during the winter as a do-everything sort of glove. Whether im driving, shoveling snow, or walking around town these work perfectly. My hands never get cold and and the etip is great. Its a little harder to use my phone with the gloves but i expected that. The large size fit nicely on my above average hands and the gloves never fall off. I look forward to using them more as the weather gets colder and the snow starts to fall. The price is fairly high but i bought these with the expectation that they will last for years and so far they show no signs of wearing out. The North Face is always the way to go when it comes to winter apparel.
