No matter where you adventure, whether it be up the steps of the Metropolitan Museum or hiking in the winter woodlands, life is easier with a great pair of gloves. Free yourself from frozen fingers and get your hands out of your pockets with our favourite winter ready gloves.
There are things that need to be considered when buying gloves, things many people overlook. First, ensure your fingers almost touch the tips of the glove without pushing against them or crunching. The small air pocket between your fingers and the cloth will trap warm air. You also want longer cuffs to keep you even warmer and allow the cuff to go under your coat sleeve so there isn’t any exposed skin on your wrists.
There is another thing to think of and that is that the thicker the glove, the warmer you’ll be, and clumsier too. You want gloves that are easy to put on and take off quickly, and you want them to not get damp and impossible when it rains too.
Although gloves don’t have a wide range of difference between them, it is wise to know what you’re looking for before you go in. For example, women’s gloves are often distinguished by smaller palm sizes and longer fingers than men’s gloves, but these are only there to help distinguish the different styles, if you think a more ‘men’s’ glove will work for your hands, go ahead, and buy them!
