The Duraglove ET is the "Electronic Touch" model of Defeet's glove made for cyclists and runners. Riding or running with a touch screened smart phone is all good until you try to use one while wearing long-fingered gloves. That's when smart phones become dumb. That's why on the tips of the middle finger, index finger and thumb of the Duraglove ET Defeet 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.
