Do high heat gloves also make the best cold weather gloves?
At work I use Kevlar/Nomex high temperature gloves good to 260deg C, 500 Deg F. They are fantastic but are not the most stylish gloves on the rack. The wearer looks a little like Mickey Mouse with long pants.
Right now it is about -12C, 10F, outside, well below freezing so I decided to try a pair outdoors when using the snowblower and feeding the birds. They were great!!! I figure if they can protect my hands from a high temperature difference of 200C, 400F, they should be able to handle a mere 40C, 80F temp difference in the cold. I was right!
I could spray a pair with Scotchguard to make them waterproof and they’d be awesome (but ugly) winter wear.
Has anyone tried wearing kitchen “Ove – gloves” outdoors in the cold? What were your findings?
