The Warmest Gloves for Winter
Table Of Contents
Travel Fashion Girl help! A reader asks:
What are the warmest gloves for traveling to cold destinations? Can you please share your best recommendations?
When traveling to a cold destination, gloves are a must! By wearing winter accessories such as a hat, scarf, warm socks, and gloves you help retain the heat throughout the rest of your body, which will make you much more comfortable in the cold. And you can organize all your winter items by storing them together in one packing cube.
Our readers shared their picks for the warmest gloves for women on the go, and here is what they chose!
Readers’ Top Pick: Echo Wool Blend Gloves
The best winter gloves are made with wool, which is a great fabric to help keep you warm and cozy. But while these gloves are thick, they aren’t bulky.
The brand’s Echo touch technology in the fingertips offer compatibility with touchscreen devices so you don’t have to remove them when you need to use your phone. This is a luxury when you’re in a cold destination and need to get directions to your next location.
One reader says, “I wouldn’t wear these to play in the snow, but they keep my hands warm while commuting and traveling.” While they require dry cleaning, you won’t have to wash them too often when worn with care.

Isotoner Fleece Lined Spandex Gloves
This is a trusted, major brand and TFG readers feel the Isotoner fleece lined glove is a solid choice at a great price. A combo of nylon, lycra spandex, and stretch fleece makes this glove flexible to wear off the plane and in urban environments because it fits well and moves with your hands.
They are easy to care for, just hand wash or wash on delicate post-trip, and bonus: you can use your phone and use Google Maps or text while wearing them! One reader says in simple terms, “These are always good.”

Terramar Thermasilk Glove Liner
A number of readers shared that glove liners are just as important as a good pair of gloves. These Terramar glove liners provide temperature control using silk, and feature a smooth surface for easy glove insert.
One shared, “liners really help because your hands will sweat and then the gloves get freezing and so do your fingers.” Another reader added, “when it’s freezing, I have silk liners and those go inside my gloves.”
Creating an interchangeable capsule wardrobe is the key to simplified packing!
Simari Multi-Sport Gloves
Running gloves? It may sound odd, but stay with us. This reader gives a perfect explanation for why these are her top pick. “Mittens are warmest, because they allow for body heat to be shared. That said, they’re not practical for driving or using your phone. These Simari running gloves are my favorite, especially when running in below zero temperatures.”
These gloves feature a sleek design and style with an extended cuff. While they may be made for running, they’re great for any type of use in cold environments.
Here’s our readers’ recommendation to avoid over heating in cold weather!
Seirus Innovation All Weather Glove
Polartec is a durable fleece blend that keeps cold weather at bay, which is why readers adore the Seirus glove. These allow you to use a smartphone or tablet without having to take them off and they are stretchy to fit snug but comfortably.
One reader was on the hunt for warm and waterproof gloves and finally found these. “They’re amazing! I wear them all winter long at home and also took them to Iceland in May where they performed admirably.” Top that off with windproof and breathable features; these gloves seriously perform in whatever activity you’re undertaking!

Columbia Thermarator Gloves
Columbia is another great brand for cold-weather necessities, and our readers agree they also make the warmest gloves. When the temperature plummets, 200 g’s of Columbia’s Thermarator fleece with thermal reflective lining and elasticized wrists is your warmest choice. The handy palm patch enhances your grip, while the touchscreen conductive fingertip keeps you wired in.
One reader shared, “I have a great pair of gloves from Columbia. They aren’t cute but they are warm. They are great for long walks in the woods.”

Eddie Bauer Mittens
Several readers find mittens warmer than gloves, which they certainly can be! While they aren’t convenient for city travel and trying to use your phone, mittens are the best winter gloves for traversing through the great outdoors.
One reader recommends Eddie Bauer mittens, saying, “I love them over thin gloves if it’s really cold outside. They’re super warm but are still nice enough to wear to work!” These mittens are durable and breathable with waterproof features. Insulated with a layer of 650 fill down, they provide maximum warmth even in windy and damp environments.

H&M Wool-Blend Gloves
TFG editor-in-chief Alex quite accidentally found these awesome gloves! On a trip to Paris in the winter, she made the big mistake of not bringing gloves and really regretted that decision! Fortunately, she found an H&M and they had these wool blend gloves.
They were perfect and were available in various sizes. As a plus, they were thin but warm and also had a nice look. Perfect for travel to a European city!
If the H&M gloves are no longer available, try one of these styles instead!
