Itsy Touch: light-weight 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. 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 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 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.

FAQ

What's the difference between High Adventure's Itsy Touch and Itsy Bitsy Touch gloves?
Flybubble: "The main difference between the lightweight summer Itsy Touch gloves and the three-season Itsy Bitsy Touch gloves is the Itsy Bitsy Touch feature a Bamboo lining in the pulse area of wrist/sleeve, which is manufactured using merino wool and bamboo fibres. Also the membrane and inner layer of the Itsy Bitsy Touch gloves are made with GORE®WINDSTOPPER® Plus Warm Technology, whereas the Itsy Touch don't feature the Plus Warm Technology (making them less warm). These differences make Itsy Touch gloves a little bit lighter than the Itsy Bitsy Touch gloves, approximately 120 grams versus 130 grams for size XL (10)."

Reviews

Reviews of High Adventure's lightweight Itsy Touch and three-season Itsy Bitsy Touch paragliding gloves.

"I've flown with the Itsy Bitsy Touch as my main paragliding gloves for five flying seasons so far. They are showing some signs of wear but still going strong. I do take care of my gear though! They are my favourite three-season paragliding gloves, by far. Well worth the money, I think. The build quality is top-notch, a cut above most, if not all, other paragliding gloves I've seen. They are very practical and comfortable to wear for paragliding, great even for long flights (longest so far just under eight hours on a long UK XC). The Itsy Bitsy Touch are too warm for hot summer climes (light summer gloves best) and not warm enough for really freezing conditions (electric heated gloves best), but great for everything in between. They offer the best balance of warmth versus dexterity, and quality/durability versus weight, of any glove I've tested. The touch sensitive panels on the index finger aren't as good as your finger on smartphones, of course, but work as well or better than others I've tested. Like all but the bulkiest gloves they work fine on pressure operated screens, like the Naviter Oudie models. Highly recommended." - Carlo Borsattino, Flybubble

"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." - Hugh Miller, Cross Country Magazine (download full review PDF)
