Hopefully by now your winter wardrobe is well stocked with all the essentials: snuggly sweaters, durable boots, protective coats and toasty fleece-lined leggings. But now we want to talk about another cold weather necessity that is perhaps the most vital of them all. We’re talking about winter gloves, of course.

Whether you’re commuting outside, braving the cold during snowy sightseeing or reluctantly taking your dog for a long walk, heavy duty, ultra-warm winter gloves are an absolute must, folks. So we rounded up the best (and warmest) on the market, from waterproof options and others that come with built-in heating systems to lightweight styles ideal for an outdoor workout sesh. We hit up staffers, reviewers and other discerning users to weigh in on the benefits of, say, all-cashmere lining versus a less expensive cashmere blend. Here's a list of highlights, followed by details on all 25 that made the cut.

I love the way you can attach with wristband so you don't have to put the gloves down (where my dogs would run off with them!)." The over-the-cuff design keeps your body heat in and the their warmth, but their nifty design, too. The Gore-Tex fabrication is sturdy, warm and machine-washable, to boot.

9. Trendoux Winter Gloves

Warmest Lightweight Gloves

Why We Love It: Super-stretchy acrylic fabric; affordable

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.

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.” They come in basic black and pale raspberry (that last is just the happy hue you need to convince you to log long miles in the winter).

eddie bauer gloves

15. Eddie Bauer Lodge Down Gloves

Warmest Waterproof Gloves

Why We Love Them: Easy-off elastic closure, machine washable

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.

This elegant pair is crafted from a genuine sheepskin leather exterior and lined with all cashmere that doesn’t just feel soft on the skin (no itchiness here!) but is oh-so warm, too. "The price could easily be doubled and these gloves would still be a bargain," says one reviewer. "I bought the pretty pink ones and they look and feel so nice and the cashmere lining is much nicer than the cheaper thinner cashmere lining found in less-priced gloves."

Size range: X-Small to X-Large

And during winter cold and flu season, we appreciate a pair of gloves you can toss in the washer on the cold cycle and then let air dry,
