You can buy special gloves that allow you to operate capacitive screen devices. They're pricier than normal gloves, and no idea how warm they'll be either, but just Google "gloves for capacitive touch devices" and you'll find plenty if you want to use the Kindle outdoors.

That's another reason the Kindle will never be a real contender for me, my skin is oddly dry enough that I have trouble pushing elevator buttons that are capacitive touch. And I don't like using buttons even if the Paperwhite had them, still wouldn't be an option.

The x50 readers with the infrared screen is never a problem turning pages with the usual swipe even with heavy gloves on.
