Touchscreen-Ready Gloves with AnyGlove

On my last trip to the Midwest last November, I was once again faced with a dilemma: do I take my gloves off and brave the cold, or use my open-fingered gloves and brave the cold? I ended up sacrificing warmth for a good picture (yet again), but I wish I didn’t have to. You must be wondering why I haven’t picked up a special pair of gloves with conductive thread so that I won’t have to take my gloves off when using a touchscreen,. That’s because I’ve never really found a pair that worked half as good as my bare fingers, so I just went without them. The creation of this new gel called AnyGlove could be the answer to all my problems and yours as well.

While there is a wide selection of touchscreen-ready gloves available on the market, most of them fall short of the average consumer’s expectations based on reviews. They don’t fit well; they don’t work; they don’t provide enough insulation. Some people buy them because they don’t have a choice. Fortunately, the AnyGlove is compact, affordable and will work on almost any type of glove. You get to choose the color, fit and design without sacrificing functionality.

It works on the following:

  • Work gloves
  • Fleece gloves
  • Running gloves
  • Liner-wool
  • Driving gloves
  • Cycling knit gloves

AnyGlove has been successfully tested on dozens of different types of gloves, from light weight liners, like The North Face® Fleece and Knit Liner gloves to winter sport, like the Mountain Hard Wear® Power Stretch® with Polartec®, Nike Dri-Fit and Therma-Fit Running Gloves, Fox® Incline Cycling gloves, Grease Monkey™ heavy duty work gloves and more.

Each bottle contains around 550 drops and that’s enough to treat several pairs. What I like about this product is that you can choose how many fingers to customize, whether it’s just your thumb or all ten.

If you find that your gloves need a “tune up”, simply re-apply, wait for it to dry, and you’re good to go again.

Many occupations require the use of gloves as part of the job. UPS and FedEx drivers, airline baggage handlers and many more could benefit from touchscreen glove functionality. With cameras employing touchscreen functionality as well, I can see how more and more photographers would need something like this in the near future.

Red Ferret also did a short video review on the touchscreen liquid.

Personally, I haven’t tried this product yet but it seems promising, and for $20 at Amazon, that sounds like a good deal if it does work. If you’ve tried AnyGlove, please share your experience with it in the comments!
