I don’t believe I’ve ever recommended an item of clothing here before, but there’s a first time for everything. I spent most of the past week outside in the cold, snow, rain, and wind, and these gloves kept my hands warmer and dryer than any gloves I’ve ever had before.
They’re Atlas 460 insulated PVC gloves, and they’re neither fashionable nor suitable for detail work. But if you’re going to be out in the weather working for a long time you’ll appreciate them. I used them while moving large pieces of steel and wire rope, and they kept my hands protected and toasty. The PVC stayed flexible in sub-freezing temperatures, was thick enough to keep them from being cut on sharp edges, and the grease they accumulated cleaned off easily with isopropyl alcohol.
