Any recommendations on which ones are most flexible in cold ? Ones I have could just as well be made of tin. Thanks in advance

Newt Sterling proprietor of Snare One sells the best shoulder length glove that I've used. Much better than the stiff black ones.

Linesman gloves, buy used off Ebay a very flexable rubber at extreme temps, you have to wear liner gloves in them. Extremely expensive to purchase new.


GUK.....it's the sound they make when they hit the end of the cable

Bemacs are the longest lasting for me

But for flexibility it's Red polar paws

Grippers are the only ones I have found to be fairly flexible. Not overly tough, but better than most for flex and feel. Northern Sport Co.

Never thought of this. Hot gloves do stay flexible in cold weather. We have to have our hot gloves tested every 6 months. Unless you can test them yourself (we don't have the equipment), it costs just as much to test them as it does to buy a new pair. So, every mechanic in our shop gets a new pair of hot gloves twice a year. After 6 months, they are practically brand new when we throw them out.
