I bought these gloves at a friend's recommendation because I needed finger dexterity while wearing gloves when training my dog outside. I also needed them to keep my hands warm in temperatures 20 degrees F or much lower. These gloves do not keep my hands warm at all. I may as well be going bare-handed for all the protection they give me. They don't even keep my hands warm when I wear them as driving gloves. They might work as a liner in a warmer glove or mitt, but I wouldn't pay $45 for a liner. I resent paying $45 for a glove that doesn't do the job.

Don't buy these for warmth

      Comments about The North Face Etip Softshell Gloves - Women's:

      please do not buy these gloves if you're looking for something to keep your hands warm. I live in Oregon where the temperatures are mild (usually around the 40's in the winter) and I bought them to keep my hands warm on my very short (1/4 mile) bike ride to work, as well as on short (2 mi) runs. They are useless. They don't block the cold, wind or the rain. The e-tip works great, but so does my finger when it's ungloved, which is essentially what you'll be if you buy them.

      North Face is usually a very reliable brand, which is why I went with these instead of some others.
      Bad job North Face. I expected so much more.

          Comments about The North Face Etip Softshell Gloves - Women's:

          These are not exceptional gloves, and from north face at $45 I expect more. I'll preface by saying they are a bit small for me, but of course thats based on the size I ordered. However, the seams on the insides of the fingers, at the fingertips are really thick, annoying, and press on my fingers. That may be slightly due to the smaller size but still, why does the seam need to be so obnoxious.

          Secondly, they actually came with a hole in the finger, in the seam between the fingers actually. Its small, so I can sew it up, but again, for $45 dollar gloves? Lastly the e-tip is nothing special, the way the gloves are designed you can't type so you can't do much more than touch commands like unlocking and taking pictures, etc. Its cold here and I'm too lazy to return them (mail order), but if I had tried them on in the store I most likely would not have gotten them.

          I like the style and comfort of these gloves BUT they are not warm at all. I've worn them during the cold Chicago temperatures and they are just not worth the money.

          Comments about The North Face Etip Softshell Gloves - Women's:

          Got these for Christmas since they had the function to use my phone without taking my gloves off. I live in Wisconsin where the weather gets pretty cold, so I figured these gloves are good just for short walking distances or in a car ride. I was completely wrong. They DO NOT keep your hands warm at all and I rarely ever use them to be honest. There would be no difference between bare hands and wearing those. I would never recommend these to anyone. Save your dollars!

          I was excited to wear these gloves, but was disappointed the first time I wore them to my son's football game. The temp was in the 40s and these did not give my hands any warmth and definitely did not block the wind. I've worn them 2 more times with same result.

          Comments about The North Face Etip Softshell Gloves - Women's:

          I bought these glove for my wife because her hands are constantly cold all the time and can never retain heat. These gloves have keep her hands warm better than any other brand. They trap the heat within the glove to keep her hands warm and still allow her to function well because they are sleek and slim. Any woman who has trouble retaining heat in their hands should look into buying these gloves!

          These gloves are great, light but you can actually do things while wearing them and keep your hands warm. The e-tip part works out really well with phones.
          This is the second time I've bought these gloves so that says something.

          These gloves are really nice, great with using a phone in the cold. They do not seem to keep your hands all that warm. On a windy or really cold day, you can feel the cold through them.

            I bought this to go on a hiking trip and it was good. There's no e-tips at the tips so you have to use the pad of fingers so it's hard to take selfies. It didn't keep my fingers warm, I felt wind go through it

                A little disappointed that the North Face logo on the right glove is peeling and looks like was maybe misaligned when it was silk screened on the glove? Surprising for a first quality NF product. I've been happier with outlet purchases. The hassle of a return is more aggravating than anything else. :(

                I was really disappointed in these. They were not warm at all! Wore them in 22 degree weather to walk my dog and my hands were freezing the entire time. I couldn't even imagine them in colder climate or with snow. The reviews were good so I took a chance but I have some way cheaper mittens that have kept me warmer than these gloves. I do like North Face products but I would go with a different colder weather glove.

                    Comments about The North Face Etip Softshell Gloves - Women's:

                    My expectation for this glove was as a glove liner - I did not expect great warmth from them, but functionality, and they do work great with my smart phone. Most etip gloves don't come with great insulation, so I expected to remove my outer glove to use them. I like that there's no glaringly-obvious tip - the touch-ability is built right into the regular fabric. Size runs small as far as the fingers and palm go, but the wrist is large - too large for me. I'll be returning these as I did not notice until I arrived home that the clip that holds the two together was broken - I can't get them apart because of how it broke. Considering these were new on the display card, this shouldn't have happened with a $45 glove. My true recommendation on this glove is "maybe".

                            These were a gift for our daughter who has freakishly small hand we have nicknamed her baby hands! The extra small fits like a glove!

                              Bought these for myself - was in dire need of new gloves and really wanted the E-Tip functionality. I ended up buying the rabbit grey - beautiful color in person. It's grey but can look purple at times. Fits nicely but the only thing is that it's not as warm as I thought it would be. Other than that, nice overall glove.

                                I bought these because they are slim and fit nicely in my pockets of my north face to always have gloves on hand. They are great to wear when driving, and aren't too bulky when picking things up. They are nice because I can still use my phone and text in them.
                                The only thing I wish wasnt there is the power logo on the pointer fingers. it's a weird look and unnecessary.
                                Other than that, great buy.
