    Called "Digits", these affix to your knit gloves, and allow you to tap, swipe, and pinch away, while keeping your hands warm. Just in time for the wintery months! :p

    I prefer to use my iPad indoors or in the car if it's nippy outside, but if it's cold enough to wear gloves and you gotta get your tap on, these appear to be a smart solution.

    I Was In Sears yesterday waiting for a friend...

    I started looking around the mens section. Sears has a display stand of gloves and on the rack was Isotoner Mens Glove that had little material conducive tips woven into both index fingers and thumbs. The cover said it would allow you to use your touch device with gloves on. So I asked my friend to put on a glove and try it with his iPhone. This worked! They were selling them for US$19.99 (on sale).

    I was impressed (doesn't take much).

    i have and love these

    Isotoner makes these for women and they are sold at walmart for $12. I have seen them in dept stores for $40 and they are the same thing. I have several pairs (I seem to lose track of my gloves often) and I love them. They are not very warm but do the trick if you are not outside for too long. They work great for touch screens and are comfortable driving gloves as well. I recommend them to everyone.

    Hi Marie! No, I'm Probably NOT Going to Buy Gloves

    BUT getting stuff for the iPad is too easy! I swore I wouldn't buy any apps, now I have over 50. I swore, I was just going to buy the Apple Case--which I did buy but then along came the Zaggmate w/Blue tooth....on and on and on.

    I am blaming this forum for this behavior--too many people providing glowing reviews of various products that are intriguing and attractive. I even have THREE stylus's (styli?)
