Winter Gloves Perfect For, Uh, Winter
Keep your hands and fingers toasty with these versatile, durable, and affordable winter gloves.
By Indy Drake
All gloves are not created equal, and they all certainly don’t look equal when you’re wearing them. Some are specifically tailored for winter activities like skiing or snowboarding, while others were made to give your hands and fingers the ability to send emails and texts, or even (allegedly) commit horrible, disgusting, inhumane acts of violence. We don’t anticipate you (allegedly) pulling an O.J. Simpson or anything, but if you did — or if you just wanted to work on your car, yard, or look cool while having warm hands — at least one of these six pairs of gloves will do the trick.
For running: Manzella Hatchback ($35)
When it’s cold outside, you may be tempted to move your cardio indoors to treadmills and elliptical machines. And that can be boring. So change things up with an outdoor run once or twice a week, and when you do, you can keep your hands toasty with these Hatchbacks. They have a protective finger hood that can be easily tucked away if the weather is mild; breathable microfleece lining to keep you warm, and a polyurethane film to deflect wind.
For the slopes: The North Face Snoborg ($110)
The Snoborgs will finally enable you to nail a front-side double cork 180 … okay, that’s not true. But they’ll keep your fingers cozy and make you look kinda like a Storm Trooper while you’re hurtling toward your possible death. With a unique five-dimensional fit, the Snoborg is anatomically designed to flex with your movements. And water-resistant goat leather and a super soft brushed microfleece make these way more comfortable than any Empire-issued gear.
