Itsy Bitsy Touch: 3 season gloves
The gloves feature wind and water-resistant weather protection, maximum dexterity and are made from durable GORE® WINDSTOPPER®/leather.
The streamlined design, with its long neoprene sleeve which fits under your jacket cuff, guards effectively against the cold. Warm hands are guaranteed by the BAMBOO lining in the pulse area which is manufactured using merino wool and bamboo fibres. The leather reinforcements protect areas exposed to stress and improve grip. The dynamic shaping and the precise cut maximise freedom of movement and dexterity.
Genuine flying feeling
The gloves are suitable for groundhandling, adjusting buckles, operating instruments and brake handles. They are soft, light and feel extremely comfortable. And they are named Itsy Bitsy Touch for a reason… the gloves are fitted with a reliable touch feature for smartphones and flight instruments.
Genuine GORE® Windstopper®
The outer glove combines durable, hydrophobic leather with a GORE® WINDSTOPPER® membrane. The GORE® WINDSTOPPER® antibacterial and odour restricting Plus Warm Technology lining provides complete and lasting warmth from the cuff to the fingertips.
ESKA® and High Adventure
If passion meets sensitivity, it must be ESKA®. For over 100 years, the ESKA® name has been synonymous with innovative craftsmanship. Years ago the “Gut Stuff” product was a great success for Eska and High Adventure. With our most recent glove collection we are setting new standards in the free flying world.

Itsy Touch / Itsy Bitsy Touch glove reviews
"Swiss-made... designed by uber-legend Urs Haari... " "... touch sensitive panels on the index finger mean you can work your smartphone and Oudie without removing your glove." "I’ve flown with the Itsy Bitsy Touch gloves for around 100 hours in Colombia and the UK and they’re the first pair I’ve ever used which have that magic combination of being warm enough and dextrous enough to work an instrument without being removed." "A good technical fit for flying, the gloves are sculpted to suit a half-gripped hand... " "If you get cold hands, I’d recommend these gloves for all but the sweatiest climates – they did me fine in Colombia – right through to warm late spring and summer days in Europe. A specialist flying glove like this might be a bit pricey and ‘pro-orientated’ but they’re made by Eska, a brand with a good reputation for long lasting kit. In the year I’ve had mine, the only noticeable wear is on the elastic dangle loops: otherwise they’re as good as new and I can’t see that changing."

High Adventure Itsy Bitsy Touch Gloves Reviews
As usual, the Flybubble service was excellent. Their place is a big kids toy shop, they have so much cool stuff. All the team are interested and know about the products they sell. When I eventually upgrade or need more stuff I will go back to them, enough said.
The gloves! If you're a flight instrument touch screen junkie like me then you will get on with these gloves. Touch your screen and stuff happens.
Another nice thing was that I felt I always had the dexterity for feeling the risers and brakes.
I was flying in 2 degrees C for about one and a half hours in Arctic conditions and after that my fingertips were no longer feeling the love, hence my comment maybe not for outer space. I think that maybe a size up and silk liners would be the answer to making this an awesome glove for flying in freezing conditions. Either that or be prepared to spend $$$$ on heated gloves.
So anything below Red Bull outer space crazy stuff, these are for you and worth the money.
I would buy these again, though based on my usage they will last forever because of their high quality.
Thanks again guys.
