Hey guys.

 

I want to buy a pair of gloves that I don't have to take off when I need to use my phone. Preferably something that is warmer, but I understand the fabric cant be too thick. Hope there is somewhere in NZ that sells a pair.

 

Thanks for the suggestions.

If you buy metallic thread you can stitch it into any gloves to make them responsive on capacitive screens.

I got some cheap ones off DX.com but they were a bit small and only one finger and the thumb active.

I got some 2 or 3 years ago, on OneDay, I think. They are fairly thin, knitted gloves, branded "iGlove", and have the conductive material on thumb and first two fingers. I find they work pretty well on a touch screen, but I mostly use them as inner gloves, under my leather ski gloves, which I have to take off to use my phone.

Cheers,
John

Kathmandu merino gloves.

I got some of them a year or two ago. Work well with smartphones and also the touch sensitive unlock capability on one of our cars too.

I bought a couple of pairs from Daiso on Queen St a few weeks back, $3.50/pair. I don't use them everyday, but I like to keep them in my handbag just in case for cold days. Just made from a cheap acrylic knit but they do the trick -  they're actually surprisingly snug!

I was out playing Pokemon Go at 6am this morning and in a -5 degree frost, my hands froze almost instantly

 

Thanks for the suggestions; I'll have to look into them

Lol.

This is the exact reason I asked about the gloves

+1 for @bcourtney and the Kathmandu merino glove suggestion. Kathmandu do have "touch technology" gloves but I've found the normal merino gloves I bought there a few years ago work just fine.

I have Kathmandu polar fleece gloves with touch screen compatible finger tips.  Work well on my Samsung.  Most of their gloves are touch compatible.

I ended up purchasing these today at lunch, since I couldn't play the game due to server issues.
