We’re getting to that time of the year when venturing outdoors with naked fingers is pure agony. Not only is it time to dust off your winter coats, sweaters, and boots, but also to start stocking up on winter gloves. It’s a good idea to just go ahead and buy a variety of pairs so you’re not caught bare-handed in the freezing winds. Below, we’ve rounded up 18 pairs in all sorts of varieties, including some everyday wool pairs, leather or suede ones for fancier occasions, and a more heavy-duty waterproof pair for snow day activities. And since we’re all addicted to our phones, over half of these work with a touchscreen.
