ThumbDogs Lets Landscapers Use Phones, Tablets Even in the Cold

Updated Sep 15, 2014

Thumb DogsWith winter getting closer, the gloves will soon come out, but that doesn’t mean you have to take them off to operate your tablet or smartphone in the field.

ThumbDogs fit over the thumb and index fingers of any gloves and restore the tactile function you need to make a touchscreen work using a medical-grade, conductive fabric.

The stretchable material fits snug and secure over your glove tips. An adjustable Velcro strap and leash system makes sure you don’t lose the two pieces.

Designed originally for skiers and snowboarders, ThumbDogs are also being used by  construction workers, motorcyclists and the military.
