The cold weather has returned in much of the United States and so has the arrival of winter gloves made especially for techies. Here are some of the best. ISOTONER is out with the second version of their popular line of smartTouch gloves. Available in a number of varieties including leather and microfiber, sale prices run from $30.80 to $88. The North Face offers gloves with Etip functionality. Available for $45 and higher, these specially designed gloves are perfect for operating a phone, tablet, or laptop mouse. One of the best winter gloves for iOS users is also the least expensive on our list. The iTap 101 Stone is just $20 and made with acrylic yarn. Best of all, they were created to fit any hand. Known primarily for their shoes, Zappos is also in the glove business this holiday season. A number of Touch Gloves are available, including those from LAUREN Ralph Lauren, Echo Design, and Kate Spade. Various colors and designs are available with prices starting at $32. Finally, Etre offers two different types of technology gloves, FIVEPOINT and Touchy. The first includes specially designed contactwoven fingertips, which work perfectly on the touchscreen of a phone or tablet.
