The North Face is a cold weather brand we all know and love for everything from durable jackets and parkas to snuggly hoodies. So of course, the brand’s winter gloves are up to snuff. This pair has soft-shell insulation and wind-proofing so your hands will be protected from moisture inside and out, as well as touch screen compatibility. (Because how else are you supposed to scroll IG in frigid temps?!)

So warm!”

carhartt gloves

4. carhartt Quilted Insulated Glove

Warmest Insulated Gloves

You probably know Carhartt for their tough-as-nails workwear, so it’s no surprise that their winter gloves are equally as durable. This quilted pair has all the qualities you’d expect (think: weatherproofing, toasty fleece lining and insulation) in addition to an ample amount of fun color choices.

ozero gloves

5. ozero -20°f Coldproof Insulated Work Glove

Warmest Gloves for Sub-Zero Temps

With plenty of similarities to the Carhartt pair above, this pick from Ozero comes with the added bonus of touchscreen capability, thanks to gripping on the index fingers and thumbs. And as for the claim that these can withstand temps as low as -20 degrees? Reviewers confirm the name of this pair is totally accurate.

6. ugg Australia Seamed Sheepskin Tech Gloves

Warmest Shearling-Lined Gloves

Fashion meets functionality in snuggly shearling and supple suede gloves that are as toasty as the Ugg slippers you normally wear on your feet. As one reviewer states, “Not only are my Ugg Gloves extremely chic looking, but they keep my hands nice and warm.” It’s important to note that some buyers report that they do stretch over time, so you might want to size down.

mtci ski gloves

7. mcti Ski Gloves

Warmest Ski Gloves

If you’re searching for a pair that really packs in the heat, it makes sense to turn to cold weather pros for suggestions. Avid skiers and snowboarders alike recommend these gloves from MCTi, raving about their waterproof design that keeps hands nice and dry when they hit the slopes.

gordini ski gloves

8. gordini Ultra Dri-max Gloves

Warmest Gloves with the Smartest Design

One PureWow editor gives high praise to this pair, boasting not only of their warmth, but their nifty design, too. “Gordini gloves are SO warm and I love that they come with a wrist loop so you (and your kids) can take them off without losing them.” Other smart features include a waterproof dri-max insert and a special zippered pocket for holding handwarmers.

trendoux ski gloves

9. trendoux Winter Gloves

Warmest Lightweight Gloves

OK, so we don’t all need a pair of gloves that can withstand sub-zero temps. (Residents of Los Angeles, we’re looking at you.) For those hoping to snag a pair that’s lightweight but still protects your digits, these are your best bet.

h and m gloves

10. h&m Padded Mittens

Warmest Padded Mittens

Allow us to introduce you to winter glove’s more adorable cousin: mittens. This fleece-lined pair is available in three cheery colors, as well as the standard black, and comes at the recommendation of another PureWow editor who says “I love these mittens from H&M. They're so affordable and keep my hands super warm in the cold Chicago temperatures. The insides have a super soft lining that's padded so they feel really thick while being super lightweight.”

bruceriver gloves

11. bruceriver Pure Wool Knit Gloves

Warmest Knit Gloves

Made with a thinsulate fleece lining, these are ideal for the person looking for a less padded option that still packs a punch of heat. In a cute knit design that comes in plenty of fun colors, these don’t absorb moisture nearly as quickly as other knitted materials—although we’d probably steer clear of dunking them in water.

nike gloves

12. nike Sphere Gloves

Warmest Running Gloves

Flexible, lightweight and constructed with reflective detailing for any nighttime jogs, this Nike pair is ideal for runners. They have a fitted cuff for a no-slip fit and are built with Dri-Fit technology that keeps any moisture at bay.

black diamond mittens

13. black Diamond Mercury Mittens

Warmest Sub-Zero Mittens

If the city which you call home is in a spot that likes to keep the air at a nice 10 degrees Fahrenheit during the wintertime, these mittens check off all the necessary boxes. Not only are they water- and wind-proof, but they’re stuffed with a toasty combination of Primaloft and Polartec Thermal Pro insulation, in addition to a Pertex Shield material. Translation: These puppies are going to keep your hands warm as can be in extreme cold, without losing any breathability.

lululemon gloves

14. lululemon Run For It All Hooded Gloves

Warmest Hooded Gloves

Tech-friendly and water-repellant, these are made from brushed fleece that’s lightweight yet warm, and ideal for those of us who are constantly on the move. But best of all, they are equipped with a flap that converts these from gloves to mittens. “I purchased these for cold weather walks and for hanging up at the mountain pass when not skiing,” writes a five-star reviewer. “These gloves keep my hands warm and love how compact they are—no extra space in the fingertips.”

eddie bauer gloves

15. eddie Bauer Lodge Down Gloves

Warmest Waterproof Gloves

TBH, there isn’t much that these gloves don’t offer. A waterproof shell with a moisture-shedding finish? Heavy-duty warmth yet still breathable? Packed with 650-fill down? Microfleece cuffs to up the cozy factor? Touchscreen compatible? Yup, you’ll find all of that here.

heated gloves

16. gobi Heat Vertex Heated Ski Gloves

Warmest Heated Winter Gloves

If you love electric blankets as much as we do, then allow us to introduce you to these bad boys. Electric gloves are exactly like heated blankets (just on a much smaller scale) and are well worth the investment if you’re sick and tired of dealing with numb hands all winter long. This pair has a rechargeable battery, three heat settings and can keep your digits toasty warm for up to six hours on a single charge. Oh, and did we mention that they’re water resistant, too?

leather gloves

17. warmen Genuine Leather Gloves

Warmest Leather Gloves

Two words: leather and cashmere. This elegant pair is crafted from a genuine sheepskin leather exterior and lined with a supple cashmere and wool blend that doesn’t just feel soft on the skin (no itchiness here!) but is oh-so warm, too.

sherpa gloves

18. holden Sherpa Mitten

Warmest Sherpa Mittens

One of our favorite trends ATM is sherpa. So it’s safe to say we’re *obsessed* with these sherpa-covered mittens that come with a fleece lining for an extra punch of warmth.

glove liners

19. trendoux Winter Gloves

Warmest Stretchy Gloves

While we love gloves for protecting our hands, they aren’t always known for having the best fit. So if you’re in search of a pair that will fit just right, these are your best bet. They’re crafted with a stretchy soft knit and equipped with an extra-wide cuff for added snugness.

terramar glove liners

20. terramar Glove Liner

Warmest Glove Liners

If you’re facing some severely cold temps in the coming weeks, we suggest turning the heat up a notch and wearing a pair of liners underneath your gloves. “I wear these as liners inside my mittens when I ski or ride my moped in the winter,” states a five-star reviewer. “With both layers, I can make it through my 20-minute commute on my scooter in Boston in 20-degree weather without any circulation problems.” Consider us sold.
