+The Science of Warmth

Winters can be brutal on the body. The human skin contains 5 times as many receptors for cold than for warm temperatures, and this even more true for your feet and hands, which are the first parts of the body to react to the cold. This makes it crucial to choose the correct hand protection to keep you safe during the winter months.Cold Weather Enthusiasts

Many people assume that simply layering clothes or gloves will be enough to protect themselves from harsh temperatures. While this definitely helps, it's more important to choose the correct insulation.

Choosing a high quality insulation can sometimes eliminate the bulk of layering, while protecting you and your skin even more. The insulation required by an individual to maintain comfort is markedly affected by activity level, and this important factor must be considered when choosing a garment for a particular activity. 

As the most recognized brand in its category worldwide, 3M™ Thinsulate™ is the best choice of insulation. The fibers of 3M™ Thinsulate™ Insulation are exceedingly fine, making them ideal for trapping insulating air and helping block the body's radiant heat loss. When compared to other insulations of equal thickness, Thinsulate™ provides about 1-1/2 times the warmth of down and up to twice the warmth of other high-loft insulations. In addition, it's hypoallergenic, odorless, breathable, durable and easily dried.

+Winter Glove Testing

Superior Glove® produces only the best in hand protection, and their winter gloves are no different. Each style is rigorously tested in-house to make sure they are up to the task. Using state-of-the-art digital testing equipment, Superior® can provide you with objective hard numbers on the abrasion, cut, impact and puncture resistance as well as thermal insulation data for any glove.


They test the gloves using thermal imaging which uses a metal hand form, complete with internally heated sensors and pores for "sweating" to imitate the human hand and its characteristics. It is then placed in a temperature chamber where it is tested against winter weather conditions, such as humidity, wind chills, and extreme temperatures down to -40 degrees Fahrenheit. These extensive tests and rating systems enable the designers to minimize glove thickness and maximize warmth, resulting in the ultimate protection against the harshest conditions.


From waterproof fabrication to wool and nylon blends, to leather and Thermolite... there are lots of options to keep your hands protected and warm, without compromising comfort or dexterity. And many of Superior's® most popular gloves also come in winter versions. But with all the great choices, how do you know which glove works best for you? While each situation varies and you should take into account your specific needs-we're confident we have a glove for you.
