But the "touch" feature is only on the finger not the thumb,
so you can't "pinch and zoom" (at least not on my pair).
Also annoying, the velcro closure is not very effective.
The designers were trying to be clever, and the flap/tab is a narrow long triangle shape which doesn't give as much velcro engagement area as a the simple / regular rectangular flap would give, and adding frustration, the flap/tab backing is a thick vinyl or rubber that has some spring to it rather than conforming to the matching patch of velcro and tries to undo its self while riding.
At $80 SRP which I paid, I'm not happy.
I see they are on close-out now for $50,
I still don't think I'd buy them at that price.
