How about winter gloves?

I bought some 5 dollar LAPG gloves-looks and feels as nice as the Mechanix easy-on gloves and are touchscreen compatible.
I'm looking into getting something from Marmot, Patagonia, Fjallraven and possibly Columbia.
Got my lady a super nice Columbia softshell. Paid full price though-wouldn't do that for myself...if it was on sale for half price I'd buy a mens one. Also got her a Kenneth Cole softshell and quality is damn good-water/windproof and all that. And a White Sierra jacket. She loves all of it....
So if you do spend enough you can get good gear. Staying away from the budget gear will keep away the repeat buys I hope. Though the Condor gear I have is probably the best out of anything they make.

(About Q's package) Willydigger:
"Is it mailed? Did you mail it? Where's the tracking? I'm pretty excited. I hope he cries. Think he'll cry? What a bitch."
"Q is an asshole, but he's so dumb I feel like hugging him all the time."

I'll have to get a better shot, this is what I took a few weeks back to show I finally got to wear the thing But its a GI issue goretex jacket, just a shell, not lined or anything. But it has zippered vents in the armpit area, a pocket on the left sleeve, a 'hidden' pocket near the zipper about chest level, as well as two front pockets. Nice having a hood on it too. The main zipper to close it (which it also has a snap-buttoned flap), has two zippers, so you can zip it up from the bottom and then unzip from the bottom, making it good for sitting down etc.
I paid 70 for it and a never used Surefire light at a gunshow (I think it was 70...) Anyway, I fell in love with it when I saw it, love wearing it. Real into it.
Oh, and I went to a laser tag place for my friends bachelors party (laser tag, arcade, and bowling) and before I took it off some joker in the room with us is like "Hey he's wearing camo, thats no fair!" and the lady that worked there said something to the effect of "well actually camo all glows bright white under the blacklights in the gaming area, so he'll be at a disadvantage" I didnt care, I was going to take it off anyway to run around etc But we walk into the room that housed the vest/gun kits and it was blacklit...jacket is not glowing any color, just black. The employee goes "wait, I dont understand, its supposed to glow bright white" and I said (and you'd have to know the city, Greensboro...a lot of, um, 'urban' areas...), "well I didnt buy it at the urbanwear spot at the mall" She didn't look pleased. Jokers.
