Waterproof Gloves

Updated on January 18, 2010

Waterproof gloves are great, especially when used as driving gloves. There are several benefits to wearing waterproof driving gloves, not the least of which is the fact that if you are driving a motorcycle, you will not have to worry about when it rains.

However, I would like to focus on something else today. I would like to talk about. I would like to discuss waterproof winter gloves, which are something that can directly benefit you if you live in a colder climate.

Waterproof winter gloves can keep you from getting any melted snow or ice on your hands, and they will certainly keep your hands much warmer than they would be if you did not wear any sort of waterproof gloves.

As always, check out anything that interests you, and I recommend shopping online.

The Ironclad Cold Condition Waterproof Gloves are decent, but not great. They are cold weather gloves, and they tend to be a little bit stiff due to the extra padding that is put into them to keep them warm.

Unfortunately, they are advertised as being very flexible, and this just does not seem to be the case. While they do keep out the cold, they do not allow you do be very flexible while doing so.

Another issue is that while these gloves are advertised as waterproof, they tend to lose their ability to keep water out after a few months of use. This is never something that you want to have to deal with when you are buying a product. And you never want to be out in the cold before you find out that your gloves that you bought are no longer working properly, and your hands are frozen.

Or course, this is just that general consensus. Your experience may be different in buying these waterproof winter gloves, and I would recommend that you do your own research on whether or not you want to invest in these waterproof gloves.

These gloves seem to get the job done. They keep out the cold, and they keep out the water. After all, if the military uses them, wouldn't you think that Youngstown Glove Company knows how to make waterproof winter gloves? I certainly would.

Also, this is just my opinion, but I think that these gloves really look good. I like the design on the fingers, and the color seems to be subtle, but it is really effective for this particular model of insulated waterproof gloves.

There seems to be little in the way of negative reviews for these gloves online. As always, do you own research and check out everything before committing to a buying decision.
