Stylish Typing Gloves Fingerless

Updated on April 14, 2015

The Problem: Cold Hands Make Typing Tough

We work in an office that is only heated by the computers, so now that it is wintertime, it's pretty cold. I was looking for holiday gifts for everyone at HubPages and I thought typing gloves would be perfect. After searching for typing gloves, I couldn't find any, but I did find a handful of other people with cold hands looking for typing gloves. The recommendation was to go with cut-off or fingerless gloves. I think that could work, but a specially crafted glove for typing is really what I'm after.

Stylish Fingerless Gloves

The explosion of mobile phones with touch controls has not only created a need for gloves that allow the controls to be handled, but a fashionable crowd not only wants practical gloves that allow them to whip out text messages in the freezing cold, but they also want to look stylish while they do it.

Here are my list of the most stylish fingerless gloves

  • Barbour Fingerless gloves are trendy and expensive. These gloves scream elitist all the way from the UK.
  • Freehands makes the widest assortment of the funkiest fingerless gloves. If you're cool hunting for fingerless gloves, start and end with Freehands.
  • San Diego Hats makes very cool knitted fingerless gloves. This is for the hipster mom.

      Heaters are too expensive for us. We don't even turn on the lights until 4pm most days:) Although, if we get a few more computers running they may be able to heat the place:)

      how about a heater that costs the same as a lightbulb to run Paul, a clay plantpot turned upside down with a 100 watt bulb placed inside it makes a great heater tried and tested during the miners strike in scotland.....jimmy

      ps ensure the pot is one with a small hole in the bottom

      Try rubber lined gloves and cutoff the tips of the fingers, and I bet that will work.

      YoJDawg, Thanks for the tip. USB Mittens seem like pretty good typing gloves. In my searches for the product I never would have thought about searching for USB mittens. Seems like they should be renamed as typing gloves:)

      Sounds like my office. I'm one of the few who hasn't broken down and bought a space heater (it is just soooo wasteful and taxpayers would be paying our electric bill - plus it isn't good for the environment). I might have to get some fingerless gloves.

      Hi all. I google typing gloves and found this site. It makes me laugh when people say cut off the fingers because I can't see how it will work when its my fingers that get cold when typing not my actual hands.

      Anyways I will keep searching ;o)

      You could use very thin gloves, so you can still feel the keys while you type. Good luck in your search.]

      Half Finger gloves is another name for typing gloves.

      I have the same need, and don't want fingerless gloves. I found "Mizuno Skintite" golf gloves online that are full-fingered. I might buy a pair at a sporting goods store if the price is right.

      I purchased several pair of Cabela's 3/4 finger gloves to wear in the office. They seem to be working pretty well for us.

      id say that a good idea of mine is something like cashmere (warm, n soft)lined leather gloves BUT the leather stops at the fingertips leaving just the thin cashmere so you can feel the keys, and in between the layers are the same USB warmers in USB mittens. i don't know what made me think of that but i thought it was so good i made one pair out of materials from our local fabric store, but with a pouch in each glove for those chemical hand warmers cuz i don't trust myself with electronics. sorry not gonna sell em, toook me WAYYY to long and a lot of sewing and work.

      Military flight gloves. These are thin enough to type with, but hold the heat in the hand. As long as you're not dealing with wind or rain, they should keep your hands warm.

      Reading this made me think of Bob Cratchit in the Christmas Carol. You don't work for Scrooge do you? :-)

      Check out Wristies fingerless gloves. Made of Polartec fleece, there are no finger positions, so they're very comfortable!

      Right now I'm planning on using hand warmers and glove liners.

      --------

      glove liners: very thin gloves that are not designed to handle wind or rain. Often silk.

      hand warmers: these gloves end at the knuckles, making them truly fingerless.

      fingerless gloves: these gloves end at the first finger joint, proving a nice mix of warmth and dexterity.

      arthritis gloves: these gloves expose only the tip of the finger and are also designed to give light compression.

      driving gloves: an open back makes these gloves easy to take off. Typically leather. Often fingerless. Often with a grippy palm.

      Flight gloves: warmth and mild protection with a thin leather palm. Provides some dexterity while covering the whole hand, but not designed for heavy duty use.

      I think this is a GREAT idea. Our office is freezing, and I've often looked for gloves that could keep my fingers warm but still let me type.
