Touchscreen Gloves for Ice Skating

Whether it is in Rockefeller Center in New York City, Millennium Park in Chicago, or the largest ice skating rink in the world, Ottawa’s Rideau Canal, ice skating is a universally fun and classic winter activity. Just like other winter activities, they are infinitely more enjoyable if you are warm and comfortable while doing them. Being prepared is a huge part of going out in the cold, and Glider Gloves should be part of your winter accessory arsenal.

Glider Gloves are the best touchscreen gloves on the market. Not only do they keep you warm, but they also allow for seamless transition to your smartphone device. Let’s take a look at how Glider Gloves can make your winter activities more enjoyable, and how they stack up against the competition.

Keep Your Gloves On

The next time you’re out on the ice and you want to take a photo, record a video, or even send a text, you’ll need to take off your gloves if you don’t have a pair that is touchscreen compatible. Even then, many touchscreen gloves are hard to use. Some leave you only with a floppy fingertip that is awkward to use, and leave you more frustrated than warm. Others are too bulky or poor fitting to be able to give you the smartphone functionality that you need. Others have a sticky coated fingertip that makes anything other than tapping impossible. With all of these gloves, it is likely that you will still need to take them off to get the job done, defeating the purpose of having them.

When you remove your gloves, you expose your hands to the elements, leading to dry and cracked hands, redness and the general discomfort that you feel when your fingers get too cold. While ice skating, taking off your gloves means risking dropping them on the ice. This might not seem to be a problem for some, but if you are inexperienced on the ice, you could easily slip and fall trying to retrieve them. Instead, when you have a pair of Glider Gloves, there is no reason to take them off. They are warm and allow you to “glide” your fingers across your phone effortlessly, almost like ice skates help a skater “glide” across the ice.

Stay Connected With Glider Gloves

Now when you want to take a photo, all you need to do is reach into your pocket or purse, and grab your phone. Each Glider Glove is equipped with a no slip silicone grip so you can grab and hold your phone with confidence knowing you won’t drop it on the ice. We are all very busy people, and the advancing technology of smartphones have allowed us to be more connected than ever, for better or worse.

Glider Gloves are well fitting, and provide full functionality to your smartphone device. Glider Gloves allow you to use your entire hand to manipulate your smartphone. You can swipe, tap, scroll, and slide with ease using every part of your hand. This means that you don’t have to adapt your phone habits to a pair of gloves like many other touchscreen gloves require.

They are woven with conductive copper fiber throughout the entire glove. The copper helps bridge the gap between your skin and your phone created by a glove. Some touchscreen gloves have caught onto this idea, but many of them still restrict your smartphone use to your fingertips in a thin glove that won't keep you warm. Don’t buy into a specific brand and upscale design of other gloves, go for something that is affordable, warm, comfortable, and functional.

Great For All Winter Fun

Whether you are ice skating, skiing, snowmobiling, commuting to or from work, or even just meandering downtown, you need to stay warm in the winter. There is no reason to have to choose between warmth and communication when you are out and about, or participating in what the winter has to offer. While waiting at the bus stop, and serious backcountry skiing are different and require much different preparation, you can use Glider Gloves in either scenario.

Glider Gloves come in two styles: Urban and Winter. Urban style is made for quick trips outside and warmer weather days in the fall and spring. These are great for a stroll around the park, a night out on the town, and even those suffering with Raynaud’s disease and need extra protection day to day. The winter style has an extra layer of warmth so they can keep your hands toasty when you’re out in the snow, without compromising the dexterity and smartphone functionality of the thinner Urban style.
