Mittens vs. Gloves?



Although the first day of winter is over a month away, the country is already in the grips (pun intended) of Jack Frost. 
 
This reminds me of the longstanding debate and question: gloves or mittens?
As a glove guru, I’ll mention the pros and cons. 

Mittens pros:
Hands down, mittens are warmer.
Gloves expose more surface area of the hand to cold air, as pointed out by the Harvard College. Link. http://outreach.mcb.harvard.edu/animations/branching3.swf

Mittens cons:
Dexterity: such as zippers, or having to remove your gloves every time you need to send a text or read an email. 

The other con is style but the New York Times noted, in winter sports attire, the mitten has been making a “significant inroad against its venerable rival, the glove.” Link. 

The Glove Guru’s solution:


Convertible mittens: These fingerless gloves with an attached flap that turns the gloves into mittens. They are stylish. They come in many styles. They are gender friendly. Kids love them, too. The price is right as well, so they make for great gifts. 

Maybe GO Convertible Mittens will finally put the debate to rest. Buy some today for delivery by Thanksgiving. Why wait until the first day of winter to arrive on December 21st. It’s here now.

Heat - Liquid and Steam Proof Glove




I haven’t addressed Heat Resistant Gloves in a long time but a recent customer request reminded me that I needed to make this post for customers looking for these types of gloves. 

This particular model, MAPA’s Temp-Tec 517 – Insulated Neoprene Glove, is a very popular model for a variety of heat, liquid, steam, and chemical resistant uses. Users range from industrial customers to workers in the food and restaurant industry. 

Despite its bulk they are surprisingly dexterous and the heat resistance exceeds normal requirements.

New – GO Industrial Glove Web Site Upgrade




We are pleased to announce that we have just completed the final touches on the major revamp of our web site dedicated to Industrial Work Gloves. Link below.

Although this web site has existed since 2008, we’ve added new category navigation and site search capabilities and, obviously, a new modern look. We’ve also up-graded our shopping cart to meet customer expectations and comply with new internet security protocols. 

GO Gloves has been on-line since 1996 but we developed the Industrial Glove web site which has navigation exclusive to industrial and work gloves. However, our internal search engine will also allow you to find other hard to find gloves not displayed on the industrial site. 

By the way, if you are not on our mailing list already, we encourage you to sign up at the link at the bottom of the home page. You’ll get a 20% discount coupon just for joining us.

Touchscreen Cut Resistant Gloves


http://www.gloves-online.com/proddetail.php?prod=WK-RWG532
My friends at Radians continue to roll out some very useful glove innovations and they haven’t disappointed me yet. The latest model that I’ve tested is the new RWG-532 Touchscreen Cut Resistant Coated Grip Gloves. 

The touchscreen sensitivity is superb and they test out at an EN388 – 4,3,4,3. Level 3 cut resistance. The price is modest, too. 

The biggest advantage is that these gloves improve productivity and keeps the user protected by allowing use of touchscreen devices without having to remove their gloves. 

Go to the link below and see them in action since we posted a You Tube video link in the product details.
