Fortify Your Gloves Like a True Warrior This Winter

Like any warrior charging into battle, when you venture out to work in extreme temperatures, you should make sure that you’re wearing the proper armor. The best way to fight off the most vile winter elements is with the right arsenal.

Choosing the best pair of warm work gloves isn’t just buying the thickest pair you can find – the last thing you want is to choose gloves that are so thick that they interfere with your dexterity, and inhibit you on the battlefield.

 

1. Shield Yourself With Multiple Layers:

Well-designed cold weather work gloves have three key components:

  1. An outer layer,
  2. A middle layer, and
  3. An inner layer

What to look for in an outer layer:

To make sure that your warm work gloves will stay warm, the outer layer needs to have resistance to water and wind.

2. Insulation is the Best Sidekick!

Insulation is your best sidekick for warm work gloves because it controls forces like conduction and convection. In non-nerd speak, that means that insulation fights off the flow of thermal energy.

What to look for in a middle layer:

The middle layer of the best winter gloves is quality insulation. One that can trap air and keep your hands warm.

Choose a insulated sidekick that traps air because trapping air keeps your winter gloves warm and toasty.

Thinsulate™ is an excellent insulation option because it traps approximately 97% of the air around your hands.

Warrior pro tip: Make sure that you choose gloves that are fully insulated, not just on the palm and back of hand.

 

3. Choose the Right Weapons:

If you were fighting the toughest dragon in all the land, you’d make sure you brought the sharpest sword with you.

In a similar way, you need to choose the right arsenal to stay warm during harsh winter days.

 What to look for in an inner layer:

The inner layer needs to have moisture-wicking capabilities to keep sweat from pooling on your skin.

4. Ensure Your Armor Fits You Perfectly:

If your armor (glove) is too tight, it’ll be uncomfortable, plain and simple.

If your glove is too loose, they’ll be letting cold in and probably slipping off your hands.

Gloves that are too thick or have too many layers can also affect your dexterity and hand movement.

Figure out if you’re wearing the right size of glove.

 

Be a Warm Work Glove Warrior:

By following the above four steps, you can be a fearless warrior this winter with warm work gloves.
