How do you set the aperture on a D800 or D800E?

Sorry if this has been beaten to death. I am just getting used to my D800E (which not surprisingly really impresses me). My setup currently has the front dial changing the aperture.  In winter - like now - when I use mittens or gloves, or put the camera in and out of a bag - the dial is easy to move unintentionally. Of course I can see this in the viewfinder but it's still a bit unnerving. Of course the advantage of using that dial for aperture is that it's easy to make the changes when you want to. I wouldn't want an awkward approach in order to solve the inadvertent slippage problem.

So I am asking if other users have found a better setup. Thanks very much.
