    I got a pair of high rated fingerless gloves from Amazon to wear while flying. They keep my hands toasty but unfortunately they are being retired today.

    Twice the flap and thumb caught the stick on the controller causing it to move aggressively while I was in constrained locations.

    One of these resulted in a near miss collision.

    They've been yanked from my bag as a result.

    Can anyone recommend some gloves they wear while flying?. Obviously I want to be able to use the touch screen.

    These are the culprits.

    There are gloves widely available with material woven in to the fingertips that work on touch screens.

    Yeah I bought some North Face gloves last week that has touchscreen ability in all the fingers. They were around $30, but work great.

    I personally use thin latex, or purple nitrile gloves when I am flying in the extreme cold. It keeps the wind and nip off of your fingers for the short time you are flying. Then after flight, I stick my hands in my pockets and warm up my fingers.

    I tried mechanix gloves, but I can't feel my fingers enough to fly well.
