Can you say I am in? As many of you know, I am a technology lover. I almost always have my phone with me and even in the winter, I have to stay connected. So either you will find me baring the icy cold air or you’ll find me in ill-fitting “touchscreen friendly” gloves. By that, I mean gloves that don’t fit me properly therefore don’t work properly.
Tailored to Fit.
When I was given the chance to try out the Glider Gloves, I was stoked. I looked at their sizing chart, printed out their hand diagram and measured my hand. Since I had two pairs, my husband did the same thing.
You measure the length and width measurement of your hand and you are given a size. There is a measurement table for both the Urban Gloves (which is a lighter glove) and the Winter Gloves that we were trying out.
Break Them In.
The Winter style tends to fit more snug. It is made of 2% spandex material that will conform to your hand the more you wear it. The sizes available are small, medium, large and extra-large. The gloves are pretty snug when you first put them on, they are a nice thickness but, not thick enough that you are uncomfortable.
How Do They Work:
Using special conductive micro-fibers woven into the liner, we are able to bridge the conductive gap your gloves create between you and your device. The result? Amazing touch response along your entire hand and fingers and allows for precise control and unparalleled touch response of your touchscreen device – no matter which part of the glove you use.
When using other gloves, I found that I would have a lot of space left between my finger and the tip of the glove. When you get into your Glider Gloves, there is no space left. That means that they will be more effective and you don’t have to stop browsing, playing and staying connected.
The grip on the gloves also make them great to hold onto your device and a nice grip while driving. Since I’ve used them, I haven’t had an issue in swiping or clicking with the gloves. That makes me one happy lady!
If you’re wondering the thickness of these gloves and do they actually keep you warm, well don’t worry. The answer is thick enough and yes–plenty warm! You can definitely feel the thickness between your fingers but, you are also warm in the winter chill.
It isn’t so thick that you lose dexterity which I find is a HUGE plus with these gloves. My husband says that these are the most comfortable pair of gloves he has ever owned. They also have Urban Glider Gloves that are thinner but, may not be as warm for the winter.
Yes, call me corny but, I truly do give a thumbs up to Glider Gloves. As a techie, I’ve tried many types of touchscreen friendly gloves to never find the right fit, not enough control from finger to screen or too thin that I am freezing. These Winter Glider Gloves are by far, the best gloves I tried to stay connected.
Glider Gloves make the perfect gift for the techie in your life, whether that is your son, daughter, husband or wife–they will love them! So say good-bye to the winter chill and hello to your friends online!
