How to Choose the Best Work Gloves for Extreme Cold Weather?

How to Choose the Best Work Gloves for Extreme Cold Weather Protecting your hands from the cold can come at the cost of extra bulkiness and a significant loss of dexterity. The best work gloves for extreme cold weather provide the greatest warmth while also minimizing bulk.

Manufacturers achieve the best work gloves for extreme cold weather by using the best materials. Kinds of leather are popular for the outer layer of such gloves. While leather is not the most insulating material, it is durable, flexible, and windproof. Inside winter gloves, expect something like foam fleece or Thinsulate. Compared to cotton flannel, these materials are very warm and less bulky than many other warm materials. 

One of the things that make our best work gloves for extreme cold weather different to others on the market is that our inner layers are designed like gloves in their own right before we insert them. We take this extra step because we know how important fit is in an ideal work glove. It doesn’t make sense to use our expertise to design and manufacture an excellent glove, only to stuff warm material into it at the last minute. 

When you wear one of our gloves for extreme cold weather, expect the same extreme comfort that you would expect from any other of our gloves. Choose cotton flannel carefully according to the application. While it provides insulation, trapping air between the loosely intertwined fibers, note that it is also absorbent. For extreme cold, look to wool, fleece, or Thinsulate, which trap more air than cotton flannel.
