Freehands, are the leading brand of gadget gloves in the US and now they have set their sights on capturing the European market; and just in time for winter.
These unique gloves were designed by New-York-City based Josh Rubin, the founder of CoolHunting.com, when he found himself answering his iPhone with his nose to avoid taking off his gloves. The hassle of the glove-or-phone conundrum came up at dinner with his father, Stanley Rubin, who conveniently manufactures and sells gloves over the last 25 years. In a matter of minutes, sketches were drawn, the scissors were out, and the Freehands glove was born.
Freehands Gloves come in two designs for keeping hands warm, Conductive tips or Flip-Fingers. There are tons of different styles, colors, and Thinsulate insulated high quality materials like cashmere, leather, fleece, rag-wool, and Polartech to chose from.
The Conductive Tips are great for any touchscreen device as special materials conduct electricity like your finger normally would so you don’t have to take off your gloves to use the device. The Flip-Fingers are ready for anything winter throws at you while keeping your hands toasty by giving you access to your fingers by using built in magnets to hold back the flipped finger caps when you need them.
If like me you constantly have to check your phone, these gloves are the perfect winter accessory. Don’t forget to check out the Groupon deal Thursday to get a pair halfprice!!
