Cold Environment Insulation

When it comes to knowing which gloves you should wear during the cold winter days, or an extreme environment, we've got the answers.
We have broken up our insulated gloves into three levels: Temperate, Moderate, and Extreme.

For the coldest of winter conditions, be sure to use extreme insulated gloves made with the most advanced technologies, like the 904's ThermoSock® lining or the 6714FF's Foam and Polar Fleece lining.

MCR Safety's ThermoSock® Lining offers extreme temperature protection via multi-layer technology combined with using your own body heat to warm the cool air before it reaches your skin.

  • Pile (Boa Pile) - Cotton or blend; Soft; Used in a variety of clothing products
  • Foam - Creates an air barrier protection; Lightweight; Provides a “cushioning” effect
  • ThermoSock® - High loft matte fiber
  • Thermal - Commonly made with cotton; Specially sewn to create air pockets for natural insulation
  • Wool - Nature’s best; Beware of imitations; Great for wet applications, dries quickly
  • Cotton/String Knit Liners - Brushed acrylic micro-terry; Acrylic/ cotton/poly; 100% Acrylic
