Best Winter Work Gloves

When the cold weather moves in, it’s essential to have a pair of work gloves that you can put on to shovel snow, chop wood, hike or even dig snow pits to assess avalanche conditions when you’re backcountry skiing or snowmobiling. Here are three gloves to consider to make you more comfortable when the mercury starts to dip.

Best for Arctic Temperatures

G & F Products 100% Waterproof Winter Gloves

Waterproof and Insulated

Rated to -58F, these gloves keep your hands dry and warm in adversely cold conditions.

What We Liked

There’s very little that these gloves can’t take, whether you’re playing or doing your chores. These are waterproof, so if you’re digging avalanche pits, shoveling snow or just making snow angels, your hands are going to stay relatively dry. The synthetic leather keeps the wind out and the closing strap on the wrist area is nice to keep snow and twigs out and keep the warmth in. Get them here.  

Most Durable

OZERO Winter Gloves Cold Proof Leather Insulated Work Glove Thick Thermal Imitation Lambswool

Strong and Rugged

Made with heavy cowhide and lined with artificial lamb’s wool, these gloves keep your hands toasty in really cold condition.

What We Liked

We like that these are made from split cowhide, making them durable and soft but strong enough to stand up to long days doing outdoor activities like chopping wood or shoveling snow. The inside lining is soft and keeps hands warm. The elastic wrist keeps snow and debris from sneaking into your gloves and also makes it easy to take them on and off. Buy them now. 

Best for Mild Weather

Winter Work Gloves for Men by Mechanix Wear

Thin for Mild Chill

These gloves offer wind and cold-weather protection in moderately cold weather if you’re off-roading or doing yard work.

What We Liked

For moderate weather, this glove offers protection and comfort. They are not rated below 40 F, so if you’re planning on being in wintry weather, these may not be for you. It’s a great feature that you can use a touchscreen phone or tablet with these gloves on. Often, taking your gloves off and then trying to type on your phone can leave your hands exposed to the cold air. We like there is an elastic cuff to keep them fitted around your wrist.
