But beside these workers that have to work outside during winter, someone in our family might also need to work outside during winter for cleaning the road to clear the snow which blocking the way to and from our homes.
Why Cold Weather Work Gloves?
Our body are sensitive to cold, therefore, working outside during winter require special coat and other accessories that will protect us from cold. Hypothermia and Frostbite usually occurs from exposure to low temperatures.
According to Wikipedia, inadequate blood circulation when the ambient temperature is below freezing leads to frostbite. This can be because the body is constricting circulation to extremities on its own to preserve core temperature and fight hypothermia. In this scenario the same factors than can lead to hypothermia (extreme cold, inadequate clothing, wet clothes, wind chill) can contribute to frostbite. Read More click here.

Customer Review on Youngstown Glove
4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, just what I needed. January 18, 2009 By S. Holmes
I bought these gloves because the winter gloves I’ve had are big and puffy and make doing pretty much any sort of small work impossible.
These gloves, while a little more cumbersome than I had hoped are very warm and very waterproof while still being very breathable and easy to work with.
I’ve also used them whenever I need to do some work outside whether that be turning valves or picking up tree branches and while I’m not sure they’d stand up to all day work for more than a winter so far they’ve done everything I’ve asked.
One problem that I have had with them is that the liner has a tendency to get bunched up in the fingers and sometimes that can be a little bit of a pain in the butt to get unbunched. It only happens in one of my gloves though so maybe it is a rare thing.
EDIT: 12/22/2010 I bought another pair when I saw them pop up on the deal of the day page. They are still in the package though because the original set I bought are still going strong. After almost 3 winters none of the seems are busting, the gloves are still waterproof and as warm as the day I bought them. I’m very happy with them.

This review is from: DeWalt DPG750L Extreme Condition 100g Insulated Cold Weather Work Glove, Large (Tools & Home Improvement)
These are excellent gloves if you work outdoors. These are not for you if you must do detail work with your hands. They are well made and warm. Best gloves I have ever owned.
4.0 out of 5 stars Save Your Fingers!, March 21, 2011 By Catherine James
This review is from: DeWalt DPG750XL Extreme Condition 100g Insulated Cold Weather Work Glove, X-Large (Tools & Home Improvement)
I bought these for my son who was working construction over the winter. He said they were the best Christmas present he ever received. They keep his hands toasty for prolonged periods of exposure to very cold temperatures and wind. His only complaint is that his hands sweat a bit when he’s working hard. But, hey… a small price to pay to save your fingers!

Customer review on Milwaukee Cold Weather Work Gloves
3.0 out of 5 stars Not for below freezing; otherwise OK. December 21, 2010 By KaiserFrazer67
These gloves are okay for moderately cold weather, which means at 32 degrees or above (for the benefit of non-U.S. readers, all temperature references will be in degrees Fahrenheit). I first tried these gloves on a windy, 10-degree day after a major snowstorm here a couple weeks ago, while cleaning off my car. My hands got so cold after about 5-7 minutes I had to go in the house to switch gloves. Neoprene and other synthetic materials are notorious conductors of cold, so I figured that was going to happen. Well, it was warmer today, about 31-32 degrees, and dead calm, so I tried them once again to finish snowblowing the remaining 1/3 of my driveway and clean off the other car, which I hadn’t finished two weeks ago. Spent over an hour outside doing these things while using these gloves, and no problems. So, there is definitely a comfort threshold with these gloves. Don’t use them when it’s below freezing outside; otherwise, they seem to be fine. (Also, don’t handle wet snow with these if you can help it; you will feel it INSTANTLY.)
