The ConceptStrategy Women’s Active Palm 7 Leather Touchscreen Gloves are beautifully designed, warm, and comfortable leather touchscreen gloves with excellent conductivity.

Conductivity

These gloves conduct incredibly well.  ConceptStrategy uses a proprietary process to impregnate their sheepskin leather with conductive material, which allows for pinpoint accuracy and ease of use.

As with most of the leather gloves reviewed on this site, the ConceptStrategy gloves do not require that the user have direct contact between the tip of their finger and the glove in order to function. Indeed, the tester’s fingertip on a couple of digits was about a quarter inch short and the gloves still worked flawlessly. This is a huge advantage over knit gloves, where the connection would be lost were the fit not flush.

Construction

The Concept Strategy women’s leather gloves are skillfully constructed.  From the tight, discrete, sturdy stitching, to the zippers and ornamentation, everything is well placed and well made. The lining is securely attached to the inside of the glove and, owing to the choice of synthetic material over wool, the risk of pilling seems to have been minimized.

Warmth  and Dexterity

For sleek, stylish gloves that are meant for being out and about around town, these are plenty warm.  The polyester liner is soft and comfortable, and the use of sheepskin leather means they are relatively windproof.

Dexterity in these gloves will be determined by fit.  As with all leather gloves, sizing is very, very important and users should make sure to check their hands against the sizing chart on ConceptStrategy’s website, which can be found here.  I would note that the sizing chart at the time of writing this review is in centimeters, so if you’re used to inches, get a converter app or look online for a calculator. That said, once you’ve determined your size, these will be amongst some of the best fitting gloves you can get.  With the right sizing, fingers move easily, the cuff doesn’t get in the way of wrist action, and the more you wear them the better they feel.

Design

For women’s leather touchscreen gloves, this design is one of my favorites. The stylized threaded stitching patterns that follow the line of each finger from the wrist to the tip are at once modern and classic.  The side of each glove has a two inch zipper, attached to which is cut leather tassel that aids in grip for pulling up and down and also looks great.  I’m a big fan of functional style.

Along those lines, these gloves would benefit were the actual zipper more functional.  While it looks stunning and it shouldn’t be removed as a design element, the gloves would be improved if the zipper assisted more in taking them on and off and securing them when being worn. At this point, though the zipper does move up and down, it seemed more ornamental than functional. Additionally, down the line, ConceptStrategy might consider trying out different colored threads as accents down the fingers. Finally, having some sort of label that clearly indicates the manufacturer, materials, care information, and contact details is always a good idea.  I discussed the latter with a ConceptStrategy founder and he assured me that all future batches would include them.

Overall Value and Conclusion

The Concept Strategy Women’s Active Palm 7 Leather Touchscreen Gloves are stylish, warm, well made, and affordable.  Whether used for driving your Aston Martin or simply picking up some groceries and looking damn good while doing it, these gloves are a great choice for the style conscious woman with a touchscreen device.
