A great pair of gloves is an essential part of any man's wardrobe, especially in those cold months of winter. Whether you need a more active or a more casual glove, there are warm options for both.
If you have an active lifestyle and dexterity is a necessary feature, L.L. Bean's Ascent Snow Sport Glove is one of the warmest pairs of gloves you can find. Its water-resistant outer shell, made of nylon and Gore-Tex, keeps your hands both warm and dry. You can choose to remove the outer shell and wear only the fleece lining if that is all you need or you want extra dexterity while remaining protected from the cold.
Another pair of gloves for the extreme elements is Gordini's Heatrap line. There are many styles to choose from but they all work similarly to keep the heat inside the glove. The gloves come with Heatrap Finger Heaters, which are disposable heater units for inside the glove's fingers. These heating units secure to separate parts of the glove and will protect your hands from extreme temperatures for 6 to 8 hours.
If you are in the market for a dressier pair of gloves, more appropriate for milder climates and limited exposure to the elements, there are a few options to choose from. The Palm Glove by OAK is a sleek looking men's glove that also keeps you very warm. The back of the glove is a knit material, while the palm side is leather and helps with traction when picking things up. The Nappa Gloves by The Men's Store at Bloomingdale's are a great everyday glove that looks good with just about anything and their cashmere cuffs will definitely help keep the cold out.
