Agloves Review and Giveaway

Monday, November 29, 2010



Brrr! It's beginning to feel a lot like winter. Time to put on my nice gloves that I barely wore last season. Oh, excuse me while I answer my iPhone. Wait a minute. I can't use the touch screen with gloves on? You've got to be kidding me! That was something I didn't take in to consideration when I bought my phone. It's a good thing I am the proud new owner of a pair of Agloves!


For all of us non-science buffs, it is somewhat surprising to learn that the technology behind modern touch screens has nothing to do with the heat in your fingers. Rather, it is capacitive, meaning it uses the natural bioelectricity in your skin. Moisture, salts and oils on your skin combine to create conductivity which allows electrons to flow between you and the touchscreen. Unless, of course, something that is non-conductive gets in the way, like a regular pair of gloves. The solution is elemental - enter Agloves. Why are they called Agloves? Ag is the symbol used on the Periodic Table of Elements that represents silver. And because silver is the most electrically conductive element, Agloves is made using silver-coated nylon fibers that are knitted into a soft and comfortable fabric.

Agloves

As a teacher, I regularly require gloves while on yard duty. I often have my phone with me, too, in order to keep track of time. Having to remove gloves in order to use my iPhone has been a royal pain, especially during those mornings when I have a thermos full of hot coffee in one hand. Agloves is the perfect solution. They work exceptionally well when it comes to using a touch screen and they are luxuriously soft to the touch. I even use them for driving. They are also warm, lightweight and super stretchy, which means they don't feel tight around the wrists like some regular gloves I've tried. They work on all touch screen phones, cameras, game systems, eReaders and more, and are hand washable. If you or someone you know owns a touch screen device, Agloves would make an excellent stocking stuffer this Christmas! Doesn't that make you want to break out in a new rendition of an old classic which I will call Silver Gloves?
You can order a pair of Agloves through Agloves' online store. They come in unisex sizes S/M, M/L, or XL and are black with silver flecks to give them a charcoal colour. They currently retail for $17.99 but today only you can save $2 off every pair all day by using the coupon code CYBERLOVE at checkout. Flat rate shipping in the USA is $3.00 or $4.00 to Canadian addresses for any number of pairs.
