Cold hands are the worst. Especially when you have to get work done.
I have spent years with cold hands while working outside, and it has not been a fun time.
The problem with finding gloves has always been finding a combo glove. The gloves I buy are either the gloves are great insulated gloves, or great leather gloves. Never both.
That is until I found the OZERO Insulated Winter Work Gloves.
About The OZERO Gloves
The leather is actually leather so you get the tough self healing nature. This is what we all expect from leather gloves, but the fake leather does not deliver.
This is going to sound strange, but I really like that the thumb is not joined to the rest of the hand. That is the thumb is not cut out with the fingers.
The manufacturers sewed the whole thumb on separately. To me, this gives it a better more natural feel for your hands.
Also the insulation is “lambswool”. I feel like they keep it together like that because it is synthetic, and not really lambs wool. However, that does not mean it is bad as an insulator. In fact it works quite well.
I think the best way to describe how good a product actually is. Is by telling you what it has done.
I use these gloves anytime the weather gets down into the 30’s and I have work to do outside. They are great for as little work as just walking around the property checking fence or for what critters have messed up now.
These gloves are also great for actually doing work too. They are tough enough to pull and fix fence, as well as handle picking up heavy loads for hours on end. That also includes move endless amounts of wood, and tree branches.
The other great thing is while I don’t recommend using them in the rain they do last, and stay warm for a while in the rain. Once you are done using them put them in front of something warm to help dry them out. Don’t put them in the dryer.
These gloves are great, but there are a couple of things I don’t like.
The main con is they don’t last even longer in the rain. I have debated getting a second pair and experimenting with some waterproofing so I can use them in the rain longer. There have just been times I have had to get stuff done, and been in the rain for too long. While the gloves stay warm’ish. They do get cold when soaked.
Finally, the thing I dislike is they are a little fluffier than I like so I feel like I have big hands. It makes handling smaller things frustrating. I guess that is true for most gloves that are made for warmth.
Overall I plan to use these gloves until they wear out, which might be a while, and then buy another pair. In fact I am tempted to buy a couple more pair just to make sure I have some if they ever stop selling them.
The price is great, and the protection from cold they offer is amazing. I was super skeptical that real leather gloves with synthetic fibers would be good, but these exceeded my expectations.
