Great, but not want I thought.

These are great gloves, but not what I thought. I tried on some in a local store and loved them, but they didn't have my size. So I ordered the black ones online. What came had the same outer shell I had seen in the store, but the liner was different. In the store, the liner had a special "fingerprint pad" on the index finger and thumb that let me use my iPhone touchscreen without taking the liner off. Cool, huh? But what came had standard stretch liners with a sticky grip on the palm side. Still nice gloves, but not what I thought I ordered, and did not work with the iPhone screen. The name Burton Pinnacle Gortex were all the same as the model in the store, there was nothing to indicate they were different.
To Dogfunk's credit, I returned them with no hassles. And if you don't use an iPod or iPhone, what they sent were great gloves. Just be aware there are two kinds of Burton Pinnacle Gortex out there. If they don't go out of their way to say "works with iPad" then the liners probably don't.
