Question Making your own touchscreen gloves

Does anyone have any experience with either of these two products;

Make Any Glove Work With a Touchscreen Device | AnyGlove Formulas for Winter Gloves & Leather Gloves

https://www.nanotips.com/

They are two different types of liquids you can use to make a normal pair of gloves into touchscreen gloves.

I decided I need a pair of touchscreen gloves so I can use my iPhone GPS, etc. while riding. I already have several pairs of gloves that are in good condition and don't need to spend another $85+ on a new pair.

They seem very similar. Checking reviews on the web the only thing I could find was that the nanotips are more like a nail polish or covering to the glove while anyglove is more liquid and will soak into the glove which may not wear off as easily and last longer.

It also looks like you get 15ml of anyglove for $15 but only 8ml of nanotips for the same price.

So, just wondering if anyone has used these or am I going to be the guinea pig?

I would do the soak rather than the covering. Don't forget you will still need the glove to ride with and you dont want it to feel weird. It seems the sweat from my hands has worked it's way into some places on my glove, so it works barely. Also, some phones have the ability to adjust the sensitivity of their screens. You may be able to set the sensitivity so that your normal gloves can use the screen

Never tried either but I've been looking at the Any Glove stuff.

I'm willing to let you be the official guinea pig
