These tight-fit leather gloves are quite slim and look stylish, but you can still rely on them to keep you warm in -20 Degrees Celsius weather. You can still use your touchscreen phone with these gloves on, but they don’t have the best grip for handling sports equipment or machinery.

These are beautiful leather gloves, and as such, you need to be careful. The manufacturer recommends keeping them out of the direct sun and avoiding rubbing the gloves on sharp or rough objects

If you are looking for men’s winter gloves that are plush, soft, and warm but offer enough dexterity to still grip a shovel or a ski pole, these gloves are for you.

They are incredibly comfortable and warm; they are a bit “puffier” than some of the other cold-weather gloves we’ve reviewed, but they do exactly what they are supposed to do.

The Polar Glove runs a bit small, so we recommend ordering a size up.

Not only are these winter gloves for women incredibly warm and protect from water, wind, and moisture, but they have touchscreen fingers so you can use your phone while on the slopes!

To be honest, we were a bit disappointed with the lack of extreme cold weather gloves for women. There’s just not as many options for women as there are for men. That being said, these gloves are exceptional and have all of the features any winter-sport enthusiast would want.

These are super comfortable, slim-fitting gloves. They are excellent for day-to-day use in cold weather. We love how they are easy to clean and quick to put on and take off.

These aren’t waterproof, windproof, or have moisture management, so they aren’t a good glove for a snowball fight or other activities where your hands will be in contact with the snow.

  • Shell Fabric:100% acrylic

  • Cleaning and Care: Hand wash

If you want seriously soft winter gloves for ladies, you won’t find a pair softer than these. They are lightweight and perfect for daily use when commuting to and from work, walking the dog, or taking the kids sledding.

They are easy to slip on and off, but you’ll need to wash these by hand. Like Columbia’s Fast Trek Glove and Isotoner’s Smart-Touch Glove, these aren’t waterproof, windproof, or have any moisture resistance. If you are looking for women’s waterproof winter gloves, you should stick to MCTi’s Thinsulate Gloves.

Looking for extreme cold weather work gloves? Look no further. These gloves are unisex-designed, so both men and women can sport them comfortably in extremely cold environments. These are flexible, thin, and insulated.

These gloves are good for medium-duty work. They are not appropriate for heavy-duty work, where there is a risk of the hands being cut or punctured.

#3 Ironclad Ranchworx Glove


  • Best For: Working outdoors in the winter; farm work, construction, etc.
  • Shell Fabric: Genuine Bullwhip leather; thermoplastic rubber that protects the knuckles from impact and abrasion; TPR finger construction

These winter work gloves are highly durable and protective. They aren’t 100% cut and puncture-proof, but they are very resistant. They are rated as an EN388 cut level 1 and an EN388 puncture level 2.

These heavy-duty gloves are made of genuine bullwhip leather and won’t shrink or dry out when they get wet. They don’t have any moisture-resistant qualities, so make sure you wash your gloves regularly or mold can form. If mold does develop, Oxyclean is a great solution.

These gloves don’t have insulation, so they are appropriate for mild winter conditions. If you want to use these gloves in the extreme cold, you’ll have to get a liner.

How to Choose the Best Winter Gloves For You

Winter is coming whether you like it or not – so you might as well be prepared! To keep your hands and fingers safe and warm we’ve reviewed the 10 best winter gloves for work and play! Now we’ll go through the criteria that separate good gloves from the best gloves.

Winter Glove Terminology


Glove has separate compartments for every finger. Gloves are excellent when you rely on your hands and need dexterity and a firm grip.


Mittens are generally warmer than gloves because fingers aren’t separated; they share one compartment. This limits the mobility and use of your hands, however.


Shell refers to the outer material of the glove. Most winter gloves have a shell made of leather or synthetics like acrylic, TPU, or PU.


TPU stands for Thermoplastic polyurethane. It has many desirable properties like transparency, elasticity, and resistance to oil, grease, and abrasion.


PU is Polyurethane, a popular substance used to manufacture high-resilience foam, rigid foam insulation, and many other products and materials.


The lining is an extra layer of material inside the glove for enhanced warmth.

Things to Consider When Shopping for Insulated Work Gloves

  • Closure System
  • Insulation
  • Waterproof, Windproof, and Moisture Wicking Qualities

Closure System

Do you need the ability to get out of your winter work gloves, fast? Then you should try to find a pair with an elastic waist, Velcro, or snap system. If you don’t foresee having to take off your gloves, you can go with whatever closure system you like best – hook and loop, buckles, or whatever you prefer!


Some gloves come with insulation, others don’t. If you work in extremely cold weather, you will need insulation and a liner. If your winters are mild, you might not have to worry about insulation or liners.

Waterproof, Windproof, and Moisture Wicking Qualities

Think about what you do with your hands on a day to day basis. Is it likely they will get wet or come in contact with snow? You’ll want to find a pair of waterproof work gloves. Are your winters full of extreme winds?

Windproof is the way to go. What about long hours? These are especially important factors when you’re considering winter gloves for work. If you know you’ll be working away for hours at a time, you should look for moisture management technology.

Winter Gloves FAQs:

Q: Can you put winter gloves in the dryer?

A: This all depends on the individual model and brand. Take a look at the pair’s care instructions. If they say you can tumble dry them then you’re in the clear. If you’ve applied a re-proofing spray on them, the heat from the dryer will actually help make it more effective. If you can’t dry them in the machine, simply leave them to dry somewhere warm.

Q: What are the best gloves for extreme cold?

A: We can’t recommend the MCTi Waterproof/Windproof Winter Gloves Enough. They not only keep the hands and fingers warm but allow you to still use your touchscreen devices without having to take them off!

Q: Do leather gloves keep your hands warm?

A: No, generally speaking, they do not. While leather works well to protect the skin from small scrapes or irritation, they don’t insulate well unless they’re linked.

Q: Should I get mittens or gloves?

A: While mittens are known to generally generate a bit more warmth, gloves offer a significantly greater amount of dexterity and still keep the hands warm. If you’re taking part in a sport or will need to handle tools, smart devices, etc. you’ll need gloves.

Winter Gloves Buying Tips :

  1. If your gloves don’t feel warm enough, try adding a fitted polyester liner. We’re sure these gloves will keep you warm anyway, but this is always a nice option to have.
  2. If your hands are still cold with gloves on, check the fit. Almost always, the reason for cold hands is poor-fitting gloves. You don’t want them to be so tight they cause chafing, but not so large that the cold gets inside.
  3. If you use your smartphone outdoors a lot, make sure your gloves operate with touchscreens. Not every glove does, so pay special attention here if that’s something of concern to you.
