Glider Gloves Partners with Google Spin-Off Niantic, Inc. to Offer Special Edition Ingress Gloves

Ingress Fans Can Now Buy Their Very Own Pair of Ingress Edition Glider Gloves for Seamless Real-World Gaming

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 01, 2015) - Glider Gloves is thrilled to announce its latest partnership with Niantic, the creator of the outdoor real-world mobile game called Ingress. Special Ingress Edition touchscreen gloves have been exclusively designed for fans and players of this fascinating game.

Ingress, which is now available on Android and iOS devices, uses its astonishing geo-location technology to transform the conventional world into a global gaming arena played by millions in over 200 countries and territories. Focused on territorial control, players of all ages become "Agents" for one of two factions; the Resistance or the Enlightened. Agents must physically visit various "Portals" (landmarks around the world) and either embrace or defend against a mysterious energy discovered by a team of scientists in Europe.

"Ingress is a unique and exciting mobile game that people play year round," says Scott Henderson, Partner and PR Communications Director at Glider Gloves. "In order to play their best, Ingress participants need to gear up with the proper equipment. And in wintertime, that includes touchscreen gloves."

Ingress Edition Glider Gloves have all the features of regular Glider Gloves, including full-touch response, warmth, protection and anti-slip grips. Plus, these touchscreen-friendly gloves designed especially for Ingress Agents offer the Faction logo grip on the palm (either Resistance or Enlightened), an enhanced cuff with city grid inner lining and a convenient, faction-branded screen cleaning tag.

Just $34.95 USD, Ingress Edition Glider Gloves are now available for purchase. Ingress Special Agents can visit Glider Gloves to learn more about the gloves and buy their very own pair today.
