Waterproof utility gloves deliver dexterity and warmth so they're great for working in cold weather. Made up of unique microfibers, Thinsulate insulation works by trapping air molecules between you and the outside. The more air a material traps in a given space? the better it insulates from the cold outside air. Design also includes a double-reinforced, synthetic leather palm; low-profile closure with woven elastic cuff; padded spandex back; neoprene knuckle pad and terry thumb brow wipe. The machine-washable gloves are also abrasion-resistant with tenacious materials for superior wear. Use ProFlex 817WP gloves while working in cold storage, marine/winter conditions, construction, hunting/fishing and outdoor recreation.
