We love a White Christmas as much as the next guy, but everything before and after is brutal. Snowfall, frigid temperatures and a stiffening wind have a way of dampening spirits, but productivity shouldn’t be affected. We’re talking about the important kind of productivity here: text messages, twitter, Angry Birds, the whole iNineyards. Even if you weren’t part of Snowpocalypse 2010 – or enduring a Chicago winter – you’re going to find yourself in need of quality gloves at some point. Fortunately, warm and fuzzy doesn’t have to mean disconnected. These pairs of technologically advanced glove options allow you operate your all-important mobile devices if and when you decide to brave the cold.

North Face Etip Gloves – $40

Silicone gripper palms and the North Face name mean quality – and you get to look like Tron.

Etre Touchy – $30

Available in a Pantone array of colors and patterns, you get the warmth of wool for all but your two “business” fingers.

Using the gloves you love, basic sewing skills and the supplied thread and fabric, sew conductive patches into your location of choice.

Put on the insulated, waterproofed, and fleece wristed gloves, and then pop your finger and thumb out of the expandable holes.

We’re not sure when the whole carry your wallet in your back pocket thing started, but we’re not big fans. Not only does it make it easier for pickpockets to swipe your cards and cash, but sitting on a wallet all day isn’t exactly what we’d call “comfortable.” That’s why we endorse the front-pocket wallet, and few versions are smarter and sleeker than the Wally Bifold. The Wally Bifold is a wallet distilled to the essentials. By eliminating unnecessary bulk, Distil Union crafted the Wally Bifold to hold as much as your standard bifold—up to 12 cards and 30 bills—but in a package that slips easily into the front pocket of your jeans.
