    Touch screen camo gloves?

    I'm in the market for a new pair of light-mid weight gloves. If I'm going to spend the money it would be great if they had the conductive finger tabs so I can use my phone while in the stand. Does anyone make them? I can't find them anywhere. It might actually be better if they don't exist so I'll pay attention more in the stand ;-)

    I got a lightweight stretch pair at Bass Pro a few months ago. Pretty sure these are the ones http://www.basspro.com/RedHead-Rut-Z...10212324/65617

    I haven't been able to find any camo touch-capable gloves. I did find a pair of light gloves at Walmart, but they are useless for long sits if it is really cold as they don't offer much warmth.

    One thing you can do, if you or someone you know is capable with a needle, is just buy some conductive thread and sew a few stitches on the fingers that you use. I haven't been able to find conductive thread at a brick and mortar, but you can find it online fairly easily. There are also sites out there that give you instructions on how to do it.

    Seems to have good reviews with the gloves. I used the thin mossy oak turkey gloves for early season and I cut the trigger finger out of mine. but this maybe a better method, not to crazy aboutthe palm side of the golve being all one color though.

    You could always just get some conductive string (wire) and sew a few strands to your already existing gloves. It will save you a few $ and works pretty good.

    You could wear these under a fold-back style mitten in cold weather.

    I use the Arctic Shield glove system with the glove inside the fold back mitten. I love these gloves for archery. For $4 I bought some conductive thread off of Ebay and stitched it in the tip of the index finger and the thumb and it works great. Figure out where the glove makes contact with the screen and make a 1/8" square pattern. Once you tie it off, dab the knot with crazy glue to lock it together. Super easy to do.

    I have these, http://www.underarmour.com/shop/us/en/pid1203060-920 that I purchased at an outlet for $19 I wear these alone almost all the time, and if I need more I have fingerless wool mitten gloves that I wear over the top. I work my phone (Droid) with them and only occasionally find a lag in responce time.

    I have an older pair of under armour liner gloves that I really like and they work with my HTC touch screen phone. I think the iphones are a little more picky though.

    The new liner gloves have a different palm and finger material so I dont know if they will work or not.

    Thanks for the help. I was looking for something a little thicker than the BP gloves but the conductive thread idea looks great! You can get it on Amazon for $10.

    Seen a cool product on TV at the 2012 CES show.Its a touch screen built into a glove that has wireless. Being designed for firefighters to monitor conditions while in the burning structure and to keep an eye on their team.. Seems like it could be brought into the hunting world somehow..

    Once I find an article on it I will post it.. was really cool..it was controlled by touching your finger to thumb
