With the holidays coming up, we thought we’d revive our Stuff We Like column to include some of our favourite products of the year.
Glider Gloves are the best example of an improved product, and one that has become indispensable as the outside temperature continues to drop. The premise is simple: regular gloves don’t contain capacitive material inside to imitate a finger touch, while products like Glider Gloves will interact perfectly with your touchscreen.
The 2012 model is more robust, with more hardier materials and improved weaving. It also contains small dots that make gripping the phone easier. I have found responsiveness to be very consistent, though Swype working betters than regular devices since the fingertips are slightly bigger than your finger, so tapping small points on the screen becomes difficult.
Glider Gloves are designed in Toronto, and are available in black or grey for 30 bucks.
