In case you haven’t noticed already, baby, it’s cold outside. Cheesy, I know.
But seriously, it is starting to get colder and feeling more like the start of winter than middle of fall. What happened?
Regardless, if you haven’t geared up for this new season change and temperature dropping, you might want to think twice and start cultivating your list.
And for smartphone users, comfy, functional, and touchscreen-friendly gloves are must-have fall/winter accessory!
I had a chance to try Glider Gloves in Urban Style, which looks like just another other touchscreen gloves out there, but surprisingly it offers a little bit more than expected and might just be what I (and my husband) have been looking for.
Before the whole smartphone, touchscreen craze totally engulfed me entirely, I’ve always been particular with my gloves choices. I leaned towards the fashionable, feminine, cute and adorable aesthetic type but when it’s freezing cold outside and you have to use your phone involving swiping and typing, I’m totally ok to opt for functionality since the cuteness won’t keep my hands warm if I have to take them off. And I can tell you based on my experience that functionality and comfort are definitely features that are ticked well with Glider Gloves.

Urban Style Gloves, currently available on Amazon for $24, come in four different sizes: Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large and the overall design suits both men and women. The gloves are made with a mix of Nylon, Acrylic, Spandex and Copper based conductive yarns, while the grip is made of Silicone.
Anti-Slip grip dots
And as stated on their site, this particular line does fit looser so you might want to keep that in mind when picking one up, or you can always refer to their Size Chart, which I thought was very handy (pun unintended), when determining the right size of gloves for you.
Layering technology for superior warmth and soft-brushed interior for comfort
While I’m still able to type with no issues using my index finger (or any other finger, for that matter) with the gloves in size small, I find the fit around my thumbs were not entirely snugged, which I would have preferred. Although after reading their website, I realized that since I have ‘petite’ hands or shorter finger length (in my case, thumbs!), Winter Style in size small would have worked better for me.
There are many features that I love about this product. One of them has to be how it offers warmth and comfort yet it’s lightweight with a soft interior material hence it doesn’t feel ‘stuffy’ when you have it on. The Anti-Slip grip dots on palms of the hands are worth pointing out because they make such a difference when holding your device securely while out and about. When they say, anti-slip, they really aren’t kidding. Even my husband was surprise when he tried it on.
It’s no surprise why this has been voted best iPhone Gloves for three years in a row and featured on Discovery Channel, USA Today, GQ and other tech websites.
Glider Gloves offers a full hand touch response as it’s made entirely of conductive yarn to offer a much better typing/swiping experience, so if you have an active lifestyle, always out and about clutching your smartphone like your life depended on it, or a blogger with a mission to takeover the social media world while on the go, then definitely check Glider Gloves in Urban Style !
