    Hi I live in Phoenix Arizona and is there a store I can buy any of these gloves at?

    None of these gloves are winter gloves... I am disappointed in your pics, as none of these gloves would do anything for a real winter - much less for high-wind situations like skiing. Moreover, they all look like they would soak up water if used to handle snow. No leather options, no deerskin options, no work-glove options and no ski-glove options. These might work in early fall or late spring, but I'm upset that you labeled this page "Capacitive Winter Gloves."

    Michael, I just contacted NewTech at their customer service line, 815-308-7001. Customer service rep Eric told me the gloves were $9 back in October when you wrote your review, but they are now selling for $12.50 a pair. I wanted to buy 4 pair at $9, but all he would offer me was free ground shipping at $12.50 a pair. Please update your review to reflect current pricing. And I'll keep looking for tech gloves.
