GameHand Glove Review


Ever since the dawn of the video game controller, sweaty hands have been an issue to most people. Most of the time, the excitement of video games, fast finger movements, and friction between the player's hands and the controller cause sweatiness and before you know it, the entire controller is soaking wet.

About the Glove

The GameHand glove was developed to solve the sweaty hands problem and provide extra grip on the game controller while still looking stylish. A 14-year-old by the name of Zac Bandremer was heavily involved in the development process of the glove to ensure that it is something that gamers would want. Now Zac and his dad are working on marketing the glove to the gaming market, including stores and distributors.

Glove Appearance and Design

The appearance of the GameHand glove is sleek and definitely appeals to the average gamer. The gloves contain two main materials; one that is used on the top and one that is used on the bottom of the glove. The gloves come in three great looking colors that include red, blue, and neon yellow. Each color works well with the black glove and the GameHand logo located on the colored piece of material. For example, on the neon yellow glove, the GameHand logo is black in color, where as on the blue and red gloves the GameHand logo is white in color and works well with the entire glove.

The materials used on the glove are very comfortable. The gloves are made up of both nylon and lycra so the glove is smooth and fits the exact form of your hand. The top of the glove is smooth while the bottom of the glove contains extra grip to keep the controller from slipping. The grip does not seem to be much more abrasive than the average hand, but if it were just made of the nylon, you can bet you wouldn't be able to hold onto anything! The design pattern of the grip on the bottom of the glove also looks excellent with the overall look of the glove.

The material cuts off a few inches before the tip of your finger. This allows your fingers to still make great contact with the buttons and joysticks without the material getting in the way. The glove extends a few inches past your wrist and can be tightened or kept loose with a velcro latch with the GameHand logo right on it. The overall quality of the glove materials are excellent and makes for a comfortable, stylish fit.

Pricing

The price is just a tad steep, but probably won't be a problem for most people. If you purchase the gloves online (GameHandglove.com) they are $20 plus $7 for shipping. The gloves are made of great and comfortable materials, but still they are just gloves. However, with the rumors about next generation games to retail at $60 a piece, the price of this glove should be the least of your worries.

Overall

These gloves would be an excellent gift for a young gamer, but if you are actually looking for a solution to the sweaty hands problem this probably isn't the best solution for most people. The appearance and design of the gloves are excellent and all of the three colors look great. If you aren't comfortable wearing even the lightest and smoothest of materials around your hands while gaming these gloves won't work out well for you. The product is excellent, but unless it is really what you are looking for, there are other ways to solve the simple problem. Last time I checked, rubbing your sweaty hands on your jeans still works.

Final Rating: 6 out of 10.
