DeFeet DuraGlove ET (Electronic Touch) Charcoal Wool Gloves
This is an American Wool version of The Duraglove ET, the Electronic Touch model of DeFeet's glove made for cyclists and runners. Riding or running with a touch screened smartphone is all good until you try to use one while wearing long-fingered gloves. That's when smartphones become dumb. That's why on the tips of the middle finger, index finger and thumb of the Duraglove ET they have added yarn that allows you to operate your device as well as you could without wearing gloves at all. Now you can tap away without removing your gloves. Problem solved. The Duraglove ET is an ideal glove for riding a bike or running. It's Cordura® yarn plated to the outside of the glove creates an abrasion resistant exterior that blocks enough air to keep you warm, while still allowing hands to breathe during aerobic activity. Another great feature of Duragloves is they are thin enough to allow for plenty of dexterity while reaching into pockets, unwrapping and eating food, and operating electronic gadgets. Suitable for temperatures from 40F to 60F (4C to 16C) Thin enough to ride/run at maximum effort and still provide dexterity to reach around in your pockets for food Thick enough to keep frostbite off your fingers Silver Ag yarn in 3 fingertips allows you to interact with touchscreen devices. No slip grippies on palm and fingers. Machine wash cool, tumble dry low No bleach, softeners, or harsh detergents. Price is for one pair.

Shane Cooper arrived in the US from England at the age of four. His father distributed knitting machines. Shane grew up around knitting machines, but was always more interested in bicycles and music. It wasn't until the early 90's that he decided to turn his attention entirely toward knitting. In 1992, DeFeet was born! The first product was a totally customizable, open-mesh weave airflow sock. The world's top endurance athletes took notice immediately.
Even though there is less knitting and less manufacturing in the US now than when Shane's father emigrated, DeFeet will not join the outsourcing movement that has become too easy for companies in the US. They have always been and will always be a custom shop, utilizing their own in-house designs and those of artisans that want to see their creations come-to-life on the most durable, best-performing socks available. All DeFeet products are made in the USA.
