Winter Work Gloves
Let's face it; working with cold hands just plain sucks. It’s uncomfortable and leaves hands more susceptible to damage from abrasions and frost bite. The work doesn’t stop when it gets cold, so you need a work glove that can keep your hands safe and comfortable during the icy months, or if you work in cold storage, every month.
Cold condition work gloves insulate your hands to delay or eliminate the transfer of heat from your hands to the outside air. This keeps the warm air close and the cold air out, which keeps you safe, comfortable, and productive.
Common Glove Insulation Types:
Not all insulated work gloves are created equal. The insulation material of the glove is what ultimately keeps the warm air in and protects your hands from cold related damage from dry skin to frost bite. Different types of liners offer different advantages to suit the job at hand.
- Fleece Insulation: - This one you’ve definitely seen before. Fleece gloves use a lightweight synthetic fabric to trap heat between its fibers and keep the hot air in. Additionally, the fibers of fleece gloves are naturally wicking which keeps moisture away from the skin for added protection. These characteristics are why fleece gloves are so popular for light duty work, and why the material is used as insulation in heavier duty gloves.
- Foam Insulation: - Used for both heat and cold protection, foam insulations are available in open and closed cell varieties. Open cell foams have open pockets (like a sponge) which can contract for comfort and hold the warm air inside. Closed cell foams (like neoprene) forms a barrier to trap warm air in and keep cold air out. This makes them windproof and usually warmer than an open cell or fleece glove.
How to Choose the Right Glove:
Choosing the right glove for the job is key and depends on several characteristics of the glove including bulkiness, dexterity and protection, but ultimately it all depends on what is needed to get the job done effectively and safely.
This is where the “Goldilocks Situation” comes into play – Too hot, too cold or just right. Working conditions that are wet and windy require a glove with added protection to decrease breathability and protect your hands from the elements. The downside of this is that this will make your hands sweat more which can be a problem for labor intensive or highly active work, because as your hands sweat they will get colder.
The Ironclad glove line offers premium features to address this problem such as water proof linings, water repellant treatments, wind proofing and cutting-edge design. Some degree of water repellant or water proofing treatment is necessary in wet or snowy conditions; however, a complete water proofing will make the glove less breathable and can result in increased sweat which will cause internal moisture. Wind proofing treatments add a windproof barrier to your hands which will not keep the water out but will keep the warm air in and close to your hands.
The Ironclad cold condition glove line utilizes premium construction features with varying levels and types of insulation to provide a durable and protective glove that will be suitable for any of these conditions, while still providing as much dexterity and comfort as possible. Whether you are shoveling snow, operating a plow, in the cold storage industry, or building that cabin in the woods, there is an Ironclad work glove to help you get the job done.

Bob: Welcome back to Albany County Fasteners - Fasteners 101. I'm Bob and today we're talking Ironclad. I have these amazing gloves. These are Tundra (gloves). These are made for the winter: ice, cold and freezing water. They have protection and I'm going to show you. So, let's get started.
I have here a bucket of ice, with water in it. So we're at about 32 degrees plus or minus. I have these Tundra Ironclad gloves. Really cool. I'm going to read off the card here. These have an Armour-Flex outer-shell. They are waterproof. (They have) Waterproof Inserts that fill the full glove all the way up and i'm going to demonstrate that they are fully water-proof. (They) Have TPR knuckle protection so you can see that it has protection here and I'll demonstrate that. And it has reflective strips on here. It also has Kevlar reinforcement. So basically, Velcro. Great for working.
I'm going to slide these on. I couldn't stick my hand in the bucket and leave it in there. We're going to test if these are waterproof now. I'm just going to put one on. I'm just gonna pull it closed here. It's a nice length. It's pretty long. It passed your wrist so if you're wearing a jacket it tucks under. And it's a nice fit. You have a nice pull strap here to pull them up when you are working. As we know on job sites, it's very hard to put them on. But also there's some really nice Kevlar protection here on the forefinger and thumb area. Which is really great and protective, so if you're to hit your knuckles, it doesn't go through and hurt your knuckles so its protection. Is it 100%? No, but if you hit it on a 2 x 6, 2 x 8 or a 2 x 10, it's pretty comfortable. So, no damage to my knuckles.
I'm going to submerge my hand in this now and we'll just hold it there and see what happens. So I'm right here. I'm not gonna go below this area because I feel that that would be like going too far. So far I'm not feeling any water. My hand is in there. I guess let's time for about 5 minutes or so and I'll give you my answer.
So I've been in here almost five minutes now, my hand. I've moved it around. So far, no water has seeped into my glove and what I feel is coolness, but then again, I'm not working, so my hands are not sweating or anything like that on a job site. I will say to you, this is about 32-degree water right now with the ice in it. This glove is rated to go down to zero degrees. It also meets IN, I'm sorry, EN 388 category two, which is basically an intermediate glove.
What's really nice about these two is that you can machine wash them and hang dry. That's an awesome requirement for me when I used to do construction. That was very important. Also, you should know that these are USA made. That's really nice too. So these are really cool gloves.
I'm gonna take my hand out now, okay, it's been in there a little bit over five minutes. I would tell you work-ability, as far as, the flexibility with the glove, it's a little stiff now. So probably after you use it for a while, it'll get a little softer and more workable. If you're working in cold conditions, you're up north, you're in Maine, you're in...you know where it's really, really, really cold, these are key gloves to have. They're going to protect your hands you're not going to get hurt. It's a must have.
