Also new from 5.11 are the Screen Ops series tactical gloves, whose claim to fame is that they feature silver-threaded finger tips which somehow allow the wearer of these gloves to operate his or her touchscreen devices such as iPhones & iPad, Android phones & tablets, as well as eReaders like the Nook & Kindle.  The concept is pretty awesome to me, since I hate having to take my gloves off while I'm out on the field when I just need to check something on my phone quickly. 

I was a bit skeptical about how well these things really worked, but luckily I had my iPad with me to see if these gloves could put their money where their fingertips were. 
Sure enough, navigation of a little website I like to frequent at Pyramyd Air was a breeze with these things on.

Response from the iPad was excellent, as was the response from my Android phone, which I did not bother to photograph. 
I don't know what it is about that silver threading that allows the touchscreen devices to function while wearing the gloves, but I can't say I care too much.  I'm just glad they (5.11 Tactical) figured something like this out as I frequently find myself needing access my phone and don't like having to take at least one of my gloves off in order to use it.  If you want to know why it works, I'm sure doing a Google search would net you some knowledge.
