The Oregon and Dakota touchscreens are resistive.

Con: They require more pressure than capacitive to register a tap, and are therefore not suitable for typing long chains of characters.

Pro: They respond to taps from a gloved finger.

I confirmed that my Oregon works fine when I am wearing a glove. Obviously, thinner gloves will give better resolution for your taps.
