Ski Gloves that I can use my iPhone with

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

I know they make some thin liner gloves now that work with touch screens. Before this season I would just take my glove off and mess with my phone or whatever, but it would be great to get a separate liner and glove combination that was really warm. Does this exist?

Liners will go in most any glove ... Costco sells some stretchy liners with grippy palms and texting finger/thumb for about 10 bucks. They have worked great in the gloves I already have. (mostly I wear them in mittens, though, since if it's cold enough to worry about bare hands, it's  cold enough for mittens)

Yes -- http://www.geekalerts.com/touchscreen-ski-gloves/ These are available in England -- anyone know of a U.S. distributor?

this is an option:

or they make the Sensor Glove that works as a liner

I started using these this year

Worked very well. Perhaps a little tight on the thumbs.

Some liner ski gloves with good grip and fitting, you can take a look at these isgloves touchscreen gloves with several sizings:

For 'em mittens that have gloves inside, which still allows you to open the finger caps and use the iphone, might wanna try out another design at http://fiett.com/shop/conductive-touch-screen-gloves?product_id=59

I have used my nose to answer the phone! icon14.gif  in the end, a good glove is more valuable than a crappy one that you can text with.

I never thought of that, great idea!

That would be best with an S3. The "S" for "snot."

I have gone so far as using the nose dialing.  A bit challenging - Siri is your friend when she's working...

How about a glove you can point with.  Rode up a chair with two other singles--one of the guys was explaining the mountain to the other, pointing out stuff and talking animatedly with his hands--he finally had to take his gloves off so he could talk and point properly. Italian?

I too love Siri when she both understands me and doesn't make me wait 30 seconds for a reply. Have gotten some pretty funny replies from her when I complain about her being too slow or getting something wrong. "I'm only trying to do my job." "There's no need to insult me."

THIS.  On the other hand (no pun intended), you can always stitch some contact thread (or whatever that stuff is called) into the finger(s) of any glove you like for this purpose.

I know that both Gordini and Serius make gloves (and glove liners) with metal threads in the pointer finger and thumb that are smart screen compatible. Both of these brands are widely distributed and easy to find in stores.

Finally.

Grandoe makes a SensorTouch line of gloves they have a liner or a ski glove with removable liner.

We were given a set of Kombi glove liners at the Next Level Camp that have the sensor touch finger.  I like how they work.

Get a small stylus that has an earphone plug and keep with your phone, needs two hands though.
