Go to Top

The frosty chill of the winter season is in full swing. Unless you live in one of the warmer states, like Florida or Hawaii, you may be in the mood to pull out your finest cashmere sweater, put on a warm beanie, and wrap yourself in some cozy winter clothing. That includes having just the right pair of gloves to keep your hands snug as a bug in a rug this time of year. It’s also important to have a pair that you can keep on while doing things, like messaging on your smartphone or driving your car. Luckily, many companies that make fine gloves are taking that fact into consideration with new styles and technology made for the digital age we all live in now. Let’s look at the best in winter gloves to protect your hands during the coldest time of the year.

Hestra Utsjo Elk/Fleece Exclusive

Hestra is a company that knows its gloves. This Icelandic brand has been crafting gloves since 1936 at their own factories with locally sourced materials. Their Hestra Utsjo Elk/Fleece Exclusive gloves come in supple Nordic elk with a cozy Primaloft fleece interior. They retain heat, but are super breathable for comfort and dry out quickly. With an elasticized cuff and two buttons, it’s easy to customize the sizing to best fit your hand. The thumbs and index finger have a special material to allow for texting while wearing the gloves. A stellar choice for very cold weather that comes in five different color choices to work with any coat wardrobe or puffer jacket.


Hestra Geoffrey

Another Hestra style, the Geoffrey, comes in two different color choices. This is an exceptional and classic pair that goes the distance during winter, and the company calls them “the finest gloves you will ever touch.” The body is made of Ethiopian hairsheep leather with rib-knitted wool blended with fabric between the fingers. In case you don’t know what a hairsheep is, it’s one that grows hair instead of regular wool. The cuff is elastic and the same wool knit fabric that makes it a snap to pull on and off. To add style, there are pique seams and points on the back of the gloves that make them look more tailored for this casual pair.


Hestra Valdres Mitt Sheepskin Leather

If you’re a mitten person, there’s no judgment here. You have to wear what makes you happy and these “mitts”, as they are called, aren’t anything like old school mittens. These Hestra Valdres Mitt Sheepskin Leather gloves are certainly the grownup version of the mittens you probably wore as a kid. Made of extra warm, water-repellent hairsheep leather, these babies will keep your hands toasty and snug all day. Inside the mitts are Primaloft Gold insulation, which is perfect for biting cold temps. The elastic cuffs on the sleeves are perfectly fitted to keep ice, snow, and wind out of your hands while making a snowman or hiking in the crisp cold air.


Shinola + Geier Deerskin Mittens

Made in the USA by the Geier Glove Company, which has been making gloves since 1927, this collaboration in their Shinola + Geier Deerskin Mittens are the perfect neutral pair of mittens that go with everything. They come in a saddle color that’s a rich medium brown of durable deerskin leather. The inside is lined for protection with Shinola rivets around the wrists. You’ll love to grab this pair to wear with casual puffer jackets for date nights on the ice rink or sipping hot chocolate around an outdoor fire pit.


Filson Full Finger Knit Gloves

If you aren’t a huge fan of leather and want an all-knit pair, these Filson Full Finger Knit Gloves are the way to go. It’s hard to find a pair of knit gloves that will stay dry, but these fit the bill with a special ragg-wool that insulates even when damp. They come in charcoal or root heather, which is a handsome neutral taupe shade. With a cool Filson patch logo and elastic cuffs, you can rock these pairs alone or under a pair of leather gloves for extra warmth while hunting or ice fishing.


J. Crew Suede Gloves With Cashmere Lining

Suede gloves are tricky to wear during snowy, wet weather, and this pair isn’t any different. But man, they look sleek and stylish. The J. Crew Suede Gloves With Cashmere Lining, in cognac or teak, is made of refined Italian sheepskin suede leather with cashmere inside. They do have a touch-text index finger to access your smartphone while wearing them, which is a nice modern touch that many people will appreciate. No one wants to remove their gloves in 20-degree weather to text or use an app while outside.


Overland Men’s Madrone Merino Sheepskin Gloves

Merino wool is one of the warmest materials available. That’s why this pair of the Overland Men’s Madrone Merino Sheepskin Gloves in a whiskey brown color is the ideal rugged pair to wear in extremely cold temperatures. With a notch at the wrist, this pair is easy to pull on and off at a moment’s notice. A classic pair that you’ll use again and again because they just get better each year.


American Trench Cashmere Fingerless Gloves

If you can’t stand having gloves cover your fingertips, it’s time for the American Trench Cashmere Fingerless Gloves. They come in four different colors, but the bottle green is especially unique, and the pair you should probably own. As a sustainable brand, these gloves are made of recycled cashmere and a tiny bit of spandex for structure. Use your phone, drive, or type on a computer all the while keeping your hands warm and your fingers tactile with flexibility.


Upstate Stock Dark Melange With Natural Deerskin Full Glove

For a pair of gloves you can do some outdoor work in turn to these bad boys. The Upstate Stock Dark Melange With Natural Deerskin Full Glove is a combination of knit on the back of the gloves and a whitetail deerskin palm for gripping. The company partners with a well-known tannery that has over 60 years of experience. These are super warm, durable, and will wick away moisture from your skin for hours of comfortable wear.
