But The North Face Etip Glove has a gripper palm and click-wheel compatible thumb and forefinger so you can access your devices without leaving your delicate fingers open to cold air. Crisis averted. Imagine how much imaginary money you would have lost if those crops had rottedThe silicone grip pattern on the palm of these gloves will prevent you from dropping your precious phone from atop a ski lift or any other precarious position you get yourself into.
