Whether we like to admit it or not, fall is just around the corner, and winter is coming in a few short months. No, we're not making a Game of Thrones reference, we're talking about the impending arrival of the colder seasons. If you're smart, you'll prepare for them now, while there's still time.

One of the most important aspects of preparing for winter is to renew your supply of warm clothing, especially if you spend a significant amount of time outdoors. It's crucial to keep your extremities insulated and protected from the elements, so a good pair of gloves is a must. Regardless of if you're in a winter survival situation or just spending a cold 8-hour weekday shift outdoors, nobody wants to end up with wet, numb, frostbitten hands after a long day outside.

Youngstown FR Waterproof Ground Gloves

Youngstown Glove Company offers a winter-oriented model known as the FR Waterproof Ground Glove, and the design provides an impressive amount of protection—not just from the cold, but also from open flames, heat, cuts, punctures, wind, and water. These gloves are formed with a Kevlar wristlet and liner, and coated with double-layered goatskin. This combination is intended to provide maximum protection and manual dexterity.

Without getting overly technical, they also comply with established standards from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), making these gloves a good choice for workplace applications. Even if your employer doesn't require gloves that meet these standards, it's good to know they have been thoroughly tested and proven.

The FR Waterproof Ground Glove is available at an MSRP of $89. For more information on these winter gloves, visit YTgloves.com.
