How to Select Winter Gloves

We know, it’s tempting to stick with what works and keep using the styles you are accustomed to – especially when it “fits like a glove” as they say. But as winter approaches, it’s a good time to start looking at different glove options. With so many varieties, it makes sense to assess your specific needs and select the appropriate type. There’s no need to compromise fit or comfort, and there’s no guesswork involved. Follow these tips to select proper winter gloves:

1. Consider the type of insulation you need: BOA, fleece, Thinsulate, etc.

2. Determine which thickness of insulation will allow you the dexterity you need (40 gram Thinsulate vs. 100 gram).

3. Do you need a waterproof lining? Check out our Water-Tite Winter Work Gloves here.

4. Consider the worker level of activity. Activity level directly affects your core temperature and therefore will affect the type of glove you should select. So if it’s -40°C and your activity level is low, you could go for the SNOWD200L—our deluxe winter mitt. Or if you’re in milder temperatures (and the envy of everyone else), with moderate to high activity levels, you might want to check out these Winter Gloves: SNTAPVC.
