looking for conductive wind stopping gloves

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Just curious what temps and conditions you are riding in. I've ridden into the low 20s and hiked into low/mid teens. Never had a problem pulling a hand out of a glove for a few minutes to catch a quick call, email or text.

fyi, most Lumia Windows Phones don't require special gloves. I think Samsung has an Android model also that works with gloves IIRC.

Either, or, conductive? That makes no sense.

Two DIY options are to either get conductive thread and sew a little or get the conductive tops that you stick onto the glove.

I got some Pearl Izumi thermal conductive gloves for Christmas. The "thermal" part is debatable but they do block the wind pretty well.

Gander Mtn is selling their Guide Series gloves at forty percent off...great deal...some are wind proof and conductive...I have stopped buying "cycling" gloves and have been using "hunting" gloves as they are as comfortable and much less money while just as warm and wind proof.
I prefer layering and use a thin base layer of gloves under a thermal, wind proof glove.
They also have a really nice silicone coating for grip.

I have a pair of these and they're very nice, comfy and warm.

My longest ride was 30 degrees for for hours and i was fine.

They're conductive too.

Pearl Izumi and i get along well.

These were part of my Christmas. They say "tech-compatible" and that they will work with smart phones, but conductive is not mentioned

I have some Timberland soft-shell windproof gloves, not bike specific but I have worn them on cold days (20 deg F)

They have a conductive index finger on each glove but, due to their thickness, it's tough to do much with the phone. I can start Strava and unlock the phone, but that's about it.
I think with any very warm/windproof glove you would have the same problem.

We are expecting a baby, I have to take every call in case it's the Mrs going into labor

I also like to pause strava on the phone when we take a break, so I don't mess up my average speed walking around. I don't have a GPS with auto-pause

As far as taking calls is concerned, wouldn't connected earphones with a mechanical switch on them at the microphone area allow you to take incoming calls and end them without even retrieving the phone from you back pocket?

Champion running gloves, available at Target for $15. Pretty light, but the absolute perfect weight for winters around here in NorCal, I've owned 2 pairs and wouldn't ride anything else unless temps were to drop at least another 20 degrees. I've even worn them skiing. Conductive strip on thumb and forefinger.

$10 to make all of your gloves conductive. It holds up well. I've used it on most of my gloves, even some really nice leather ones.

I just got these Giro DND X Cinelli gloves. Although I haven't had them out in the wind yet they do have a conductive finger. They have less busy options on the giro site as well. I'm excited to get out and use them.

I have Pearl Izumi thermal conductive gloves and they're warmer than I thought. That being said, I haven't ridden in real cold weather but I was out when it was upper 30's and breezy and they were plenty warm still and they're pretty affordable (about $30 or so).

I have the older version of the PI thermal that work ok on the phone, they are fine in cool weather but no real wind resistance.

Conductive? Are you going to use them as a heating element and your smart phone as a power source? Sounds dangerous, but fun.
