Questions about Glider Gloves

What are Glider Gloves?

Glider Gloves are touchscreen compatible gloves, or conductive gloves, or sometime even called iPhone gloves. They are winter gloves for touch screen devices. They allow you to keep your gloves on while still maintaining the ability to use your touchscreen device with accuracy and precision on all fingers and your entire hand. You can read more about them here.

How do they work on my touch device?

The magic is in the material. Glider Gloves makes use of conductive copper threads and fibers built into the glove’s yarn composition. These special yarns allow your body’s natural electric current to flow through the glove to your device, making it respond to your touch. Learn more about our conductive textile technology here.

Will I be able to text and type with these gloves on?

Yes, and almost as well as your bare hands. Since Glider Gloves are made entirely with conductive yarns, you get a much higher precision touch response – no matter your style of typing. You can use any part of your finger or hand with great accuracy for easy texting, twitting, and emails.

Do they work on all touch screen devices?

YES! Our touchscreen gloves work on ANY capacitive touch screen device. Some common examples include the iPhone, Galaxy, iPad, and more.

Will they damage or scratch my screen?

No way! Our gloves are soft and slick and will not damage or scratch your screen.

What makes them better than the rest?

Glider Gloves offer the consumer the best innovation in touch screen gloves. Its starts off with the gloves being made entirely from conductive materials – not just the finger tips like some of the other gloves. This means best-in-class accuracy and precision. Secondly, they are warm! Designed by Canadians, trust us when we say we know a thing or two about cold. Third, these gloves were designed by touchscreen device users for touchscreen device users. We’ve added cool features like anti-slip grip and a product tag that doubles as a screen cleaning cloth, just a few things that we know will come in handy. And to top things off, we offer Glider Gloves in a variety of limited edition colours and sizes to meet the tastes on any consumer.

Are they warm?

A lot of available gloves in the market are very thin and do not offer much protection from the elements. The cool factor of a touchscreen glove kind of wears off if your fingers are still frozen on the inside. But this is not the case with Glider Gloves. Our touchscreen gloves are made with layers, a conductive yarn mix on the outer a shell, a plaited and insulated middle layer, and a brushed acrylic layer that is soft on your hands. This traps the heat and circulates it. Mom always said to wear layers! Learn more about our layering technology here.

What are they made from?

Our gloves are made from Nylon, Acrylic, Spandex, and Copper based conductive yarns

Are the gloves made from any animal products?

We are happy to report that our gloves are 100% vegan friendly and do not contain any animal products.

How do I care for my gloves?

To clean you Glider Gloves we recommend a gentle hand wash in cold water and to lay flat to dry. Use very mild soap or cleaning agents should your gloves get extremely dirty. Absolutely DO NOT TUMBLE DRY. When possible, keep your gloves in a dry place. If they get wet, take proactive steps to dry them out as soon as possible. This will help maintain the conductivity of the gloves.
