New models are fully made of conductive yarns and suitable for rugged adventure activities.
- Increased conductivity: A number of suppliers are releasing fully conductive designs for improved user convenience. Designs with conductive thumb, and index and middle fingers, however, remain dominant. Two- and 5-point pairs are offered as well.
- Designs for outdoor sports: With adventure activities rising in popularity, more makers are launching gloves that are suitable for freezing temperatures. Such models often utilize leather and nylon, and have fabric insulation and 2-finger conductivity. Versions with LEDs and SBR protectors are also available.
- Nonslip releases: Some gloves feature silicone, rubber or PVC padding in the palms to prevent the gadgets from slipping. Popular motifs are dots and skeletons.
- Material: Acrylic and wool are the common options because of their warmth-retentive characteristic. Cotton is adopted for its breathability, while polyester is used as the textile resists staining and shrinkage. Suppliers typically use fabric blends as these combine the different materials’ properties.
