Silicone screened, and touch screen compatible finger tips allow you to grip the brake securely and access your phone when it is time to grab some photographic evidence of the days adventures. The soft thumb material allows you to wipe a dusty eye or runny nose. The tried and true Launch glove is the perfect combination of protection, ventilation, and functionality.

They are great in every way a glove should be for XC/Trail riding. They work great on the touch screen.
The Achilles' Heel might be a deal breaker though. There is a seam on the thumbs the is tall and placed right where the thumb wraps around the grip. It becomes very uncomfortable, even on short (1hour) rides. My grips are firm. ODI Vans tread lock ons. A softer grip like ESI Foam gips might alleviate some of the issue. I bummed they're really great otherwise. Try before you buy with these.
