These gloves are really cool because they have a special material over the thumb, index and middle finger, which allows you to access your touch screens without taking your gloves off! I saw a version of these gloves on the Today show and wanted to seek out a pair for myself. It doesn't get super cold in Southern California though, so I didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for something I will only use a few times. There are quite a few smart touch gloves on the market, but here are two similar versions depending on your price point.
The Echo Design ones are from Zappo's and are cashmere, which is why they are so expensive. They do look a little less bulky than the steal however. The Isotoner Smart Tech gloves are on sale right now at Kohl's! They were originally $44, but that's still better than the Echo Design price. I think these gloves will be great Christmas presents as well!!
