Make fingertips sticky

I have a hard time finding gloves that fit well, I need xl width and m or l length... For summer gloves not a problem, get leather and the stretch, but most winter gloves I either can't get my hands into or the finger tips are empty. I bought a pair of snowmobile gloves I love, but fingers aren't tacky. Is there a paint I can apply to finger tips to make them tacky... The gloves for great and are warm, bit I can feel slippage on clutch and brake... Don't give a shit about looks... I've heard glue gun on fingertips would work... Any advice?

Hmm, I haven't really thought about it but the first thing that came to mind was Plasti Dip.

If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

Add a bit of Shoe Goo to the tips.
Cheap, easy, and will probably last as long as you have the gloves.

Try smearing a thin coat of RTV silicone sealer on them.
