Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing ones. While we’ve written about men’s winter boots, a pair of Heattech gloves, the best ski and snowboard gear, and the best women’s winter gloves and mittens, we’ve gone deep here on the best men’s winter gloves and mittens you can find on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best 100 percent wool gloves with lining

Bruceriver Men’s Pure Wool Knitted Gloves with Thinsulate Lining

“Very nice!! I just had them on in 17-degree weather digging around my car with a shovel! My hands were toasty. If you want a very warm glove that is wool instead of the snow ski looking glove then this is the way to go! I did have my hands in the snow and they did not get wet.”

Best fleece-lined knit gloves

LETHMIK Thick Fleece Knit Winter Gloves

“I love these gloves. I forgot to post a review when I first bought them, but they were great for this winter in Ohio. They’re comfy and keep your hands nice and warm. I joked around with friends when they tried them on and said to be careful with them because they’re my $40 boujee winter gloves and everyone believed me because of how good they feel. The fur lining on the inside keeps your digits nice and toasty. I highly recommend them.”

Best waterproof insulated gloves

Carhartt Men’s W.P. Waterproof Insulated Glove

“These gloves are fantastic. They are incredibly soft and warm, and the nose wipe is a great idea. I’ve owned ski gloves that were considerably more expensive but didn’t seem to provide any more protection from the elements. While they are bulky, as you’d expect, I’m very surprised by how functional they are. The palms and fingers are surprisingly grippy. It’s possible to write while wearing them, and I was even able to pick up individual nuts and bolts off the floor of my garage with them on.”

Gordini Promo Gauntlet Gore-Tex Gloves

“These things are fantastic. Goretex is the only way to go for gloves. I was in Tahoe and had gloves that would not keep me dry. These I have taken to Tahoe in the biggest snowfall in 15 years and to Snowbird in Utah. My hands are dry and warm. Fantastic product. I will buy them again.”

Best waterproof insulated mittens

Carhartt Men’s W.P. Waterproof Insulated Mitt

“I ski as much as I can. I finally decided to switch to mittens after I lost my pair of gloves on the mountain. I LOVE these gloves: They keep my hands warm, they’re easy to take on and off, and you cannot beat the price of these. I accidentally left a pair on the roof of my car and bought another pair immediately because of the price and comfort these gloves provided me with. Love them! Will buy again.”

Best fur-lined leather gloves

Fratelli Orsini Everyday Men’s Our Bestselling Italian Rabbit Fur Gloves

“I waited a few days before writing this review in hopes of getting a fuller experience with them. I am blown away. First off, they look great. The thick leather is of obvious quality, which shows in its ability to stretch and conform to the shape of the hand. The experience of wearing them only gets better with time. The rabbit-fur lining is sinfully soft. They slide on easily and more than likely you’ll fight to find a reason to take them off. Keep in mind that there is a slight tendency for the lining to ‘shed.’ However, it is light and far from being a nuisance. Finally, these gloves are boastful in their warmth. The fur insulates well and the leather creates a breathable barrier between you and the cold objects you come into contact with. I highly recommend these.”

Best cashmere-lined leather gloves

Fratelli Orsini Everyday Men’s Italian Lambskin Cashmere Lined Winter Leather Gloves

“Leather is very soft and pliable, with a dull sheen. They are fully lined to the fingertips; the cashmere lining is a knitted light gray, soft, and relatively thin … There is some elastic on the inside of the wrist to keep the glove snug, and the leather is bunched there. The accent lines on the back of each glove are as shown in the photos. The gloves seems to be carefully constructed of high-quality materials and precisely sewn. Fit is accurate; my hand is between 8 and 8.5 inches, and medium was the right choice. Overall, these are exactly as I hoped: a high-quality pair of warm, dressy gloves at a competitive price. Strongly recommended.”

Best touchscreen-friendly leather gloves under $50

Vetelli Men’s Winter Gloves/Black Leather Driving Gloves (Touchscreen Technology)

“Nice and snug fitted gloves. Have the feel and appearance of high-end gloves at a really nice price! Highly recommend these gloves for anyone looking to keep their hands warm while being able to use their smartphone or tablet. Haven’t used for snow or anything similar, but that’s because they aren’t designed for that use. I don’t know why I waited this long?”

Best stretchy unlined dress gloves

Isotoner Men’s Spandex Glove With Suede Palm Strips

“My husband is very satisfied with these gloves! He has large hands and doesn’t like thick gloves because they don’t give him the flexibility he needs. These are very comfortable thanks to the spandex. Well-made and very warm without being bulky. We have always been happy with Isotoner products, which retain their shape and appearance for years. These were purchased last season and are still in excellent condition.”

Best leather motorcycle-riding gloves

Milwaukee Motorcycle Clothing Company Men’s Leather Gauntlet Riding Gloves

“I own a Milwaukee jacket and to have these gloves to match is great. My previous leather gloves were fine but were short, so I would get air get up into my sleeve (I do not have a full shield on my bike). That makes for a chilly ride to work in the morning. With the extra length in this pair, it’s now a warmer and more comfortable ride. The only downside (and I’m splitting hairs) is they are a bit on the thin side, so in 50-to-55-degree temps, the hands get a bit cold. Otherwise, I highly recommend!”

Best fingerless gloves

3M Thinsulate 40 gram Thermal Insulated Knit Winter Fingerless Gloves

“As a person living in the Upper Midwest who needs to do fine-motor things, such as operate car controls and phone and so forth, I’ve tried a lot of different fingerless gloves. This is the first pair that have really worked —keeping my hands at an operational temp while also giving me finger contact as needed. Walking the dog in -4° weather, these gloves were adequate, which is saying something. Just bought another pair for the wife.”

Best convertible wool mittens

Igloos Men’s The Sentry Mittens

“They are my favorite, favorite gloves. This is the third time I have bought these — not because they broke apart, but because I constantly lose the left glove. I highly recommend you buy these if you want comfort, warmth, and mobility.”

Best fleece-lined wool gloves with leather grips

Fox River Four Layer Glove

“The exterior is made of a nice knitted material that helps keep your hands warm and insulated, while also being ‘tough’ so as to not break down or fall apart on you. The palm and finger area is lined with a leather-like material that helps provide a nice gripping surface. The really great thing about this combination is it offers the flexibility of wool with the grip of leather; while most leather seems to be stiff and bulky even after regular use, this product doesn’t have any of those negative qualities right off the bat. So far they have kept my hands very warm, and perform extremely well while working outdoors.”

Best silk liner gloves

ALASKA BEAR Natural Silk Gloves Thermal Liner Unisex

“These are perfect for me. I got these liners to wear under mittens and rancher’s hide gloves. I’m in the Adirondacks and outside in the weather constantly. Gathering firewood and working outdoors is brutal on your hands if you don’t have the right stuff to keep you warm and dry. These liners are very comfortable, fit just as expected, and don’t have that scratchy/itchy feeling in between the fingers that synthetic liners do. The silk is soft and, although still new, looks like it will hold up well to wear when cared for properly. These liners are very warm and cozy when used with another outer shell layer, and they keep your fingers feeling nice in cold, damp weather. Remember they are LINERS, not GLOVES … They are meant to add insulation, warmth and comfort to the INSIDE of your gloves. … I like these a lot. Get some. You won’t be disappointed.”

Best touchscreen-friendly winter running gloves

TrailHeads Lightweight Running Gloves with Touchscreen Fingers

“I have had a pair for a while and made good use of them when I ran a leg of the Baker to Vegas Relay. My hands were warm and toasty for my seven mile middle-of-the-night run! Unfortunately I must have dropped one by the side of the road while changing into dry clothes. Loved them so much I had to order another pair! Love Love Love!”

Best all-around winter sports gloves

Mountain Made Outdoor Gloves for Men and Women

“Wow. I wear these gloves every day, biking to work. I wear them when I go hiking and pretty much in any situation. It has been great hiking as they keep your hands at a good temperature, where you want to keep them on. Also, hiking through snow and touching snow, they didn’t get soaked and still kept my hands very dry. The rubber pattern on the inside of the hand is very useful for holding onto things, as well as being functional for grabbing things … out of your pack. The fit of these gloves is another great point and allows you to actually use your hands [without having] to take the gloves off.”
