Classic leather gloves are look good and keep your hands warm, but they don't always come with touchscreen functionality. These do and the several reviews we've seen on them point to them working wonderfully.

This leather option was The Wirecutter's pick for a "premium leather upgrade" from Moshi's knit Digits option. Here's what they had to say about them: "We didn't test a huge number of premium, all-leather gloves, but of those we did evaluate, the Kent Wang Deerskin Gloves were our favorites. The classic, calf-leather design fits well, while the cashmere lining provides some extra warmth, and they work well with touchscreens. But, as is to be expected with this kind of glove, they're expensive." They're offered in four standard sizes, or for an additional $25, you can have them custom made to your exact hand sizing.
