Whether you’re walking to work or around the block, warm gloves (or mittens) are a must-have during the colder months. So while we’ve written about lots of cold-weather gear before — including touchscreen gloves for him and her, winter boots for women, and winter hats for women — here, we’ve rounded up the best winter gloves and mittens for women, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers on Amazon.
Achiou Winter Knit Touchscreen Gloves
With over 20,000 five-star ratings, these knitted gloves have earned consistent praise for their warmth, build quality, value for money, and thoughtful design details (like the fact they’re fully compatible with touchscreens). One reviewer who wore them to survive a “brutal” Michigan winter says they’re “so cute and warm,” as well as “perfect for holding your phone when it’s cold.” (She adds that the gloves cured the aches she’d suffer from while texting on walks to and from class.) Other reviewers equally appreciate the rubber grip dots on the palms of the gloves, which one reviewer says are “great for driving, playing on my phone without dropping it, and anything else I need to do.” And despite the fact that the gloves are so tech-friendly, reviewers say the designers didn’t scrimp on the basics.
Carhartt Women’s Quilts Insulated Glove With Waterproof Wicking Insert
Hundreds of reviewers living in extra-chilly climates love the intense warmth they experience when wearing these insulated Carhartt gloves. “These suckers keep my fingers and hands as warm as being wrapped in a wool blanket,” writes one who lives “in the brutal Northeast.” She adds, “These gloves have kept my hands nice and toasty even while outside cleaning snow and such off the cars.” A Midwesterner who also knows a thing or two about being cold writes, “These gloves give me LIFE. The midwest winter can’t get to me with these.”
Ozero -20°F Coldproof Insulated Work Glove
These insulated Ozero gloves are similar to the Carhartt pair above, but feature touchscreen capabilities (like our best-rated pair) on the index fingers and thumbs. “The touchscreen compatibility makes it so as long as you’re somewhat proficient in mashing your phone screen with your digits, you’ll still be able to accomplish basic communication tasks with relative ease,” writes a reviewer who says these are “very well made with premium materials.” One Midwesterner in search of a pair of gloves that were “warm, but not so bulky that I couldn’t drive with them or perform basic hand-like functions” found that these “hit the mark.”
OZero Deerskin Suede -20°F Winter Gloves
Reviewers found these unisex gloves made from ultrawarm deerskin on the palms to be warm enough to withstand temperatures as low as ten degrees Fahrenheit. One reviewer, who has tried “everything over the years” to keep warm during Central Plains winters, found that “nothing has really worked until these.” They’re wind-resistant, “comfortable,” and are “the warmest gloves I’ve had.” Another reviewer purchased them for their daughter who lives in Wisconsin, and she “only got cold when she was bicycling to class during the winter.”
These are some of the best winter gloves in 2021.
