What should you look for when buying new gloves?
If you're planning on buying new gloves, it's a good idea to pay attention to certain characteristics. That way, you can enjoy your new fashion item for as long as possible. It also depends on how you're going to use the gloves. Will you use the gloves behind the wheel in the car or do you like to wear mittens because your hands get cold? The following characteristics will help you find the right gloves.
Comfortable, waterproof gloves
Comfortable leather gloves for ladies or warm mittens are indispensable in the winter months. Even in autumn, the Dutch weather can leave you in need of warm hands. When it comes to ladies' gloves, make sure they let as little water through as possible. Wet hands from the rain will cause your hands to cool down faster. Make sure that you don't lose any freedom of movement in the gloves. After all, you still need to be able to reach the gas or hand brake of your scooter or bicycle with your hand. With gloves that have a well-shaped fit, this is no problem at all. This way, you can use your hands optimally, while they stay comfortably warm. Even on the coldest days of the year.
Buying new gloves: the windproofness
To prevent your hands from cooling down too quickly, the windproofness of the gloves is decisive. Therefore, buy new gloves made of, for example, merino wool, which lets hardly any wind through. In most cases, a waterproof item is also very windproof. That way, you kill two birds with one stone.
Breathability of the gloves
However, if the gloves are water- and windproof, they should not completely seal off the skin. If this is the case, you will sweat as soon as you put the gloves on. This results in an uncomfortable wearing experience. In this case, the best option is to buy wool gloves, because wool is perfectly breathable. Frickin makes gloves and liners out of natural materials whenever possible. This ensures that your hands are wrapped in fabrics that are nurturing, breathable and supple.
The fit of the gloves
When buying new gloves, it is advisable to pay attention to the fit. Gloves that are too loose don't warm your hands as well as they should. Therefore, make sure that the gloves fit perfectly around your fingers and hand. Of course, they shouldn't pinch your fingers either. Make sure you can move your hand and fingers comfortably.
Using your touchscreen
It's a pain in the ass to have to take off your gloves all the time to quickly look something up on your smartphone or take a picture. Are you someone who likes to check your phone? Then look for gloves that are touchscreen compatible. These gloves have one or more touchscreen fingers. A special conductive fabric transfers the heat from your fingers to the glove. This way, you can still work on your tablet or phone.
