Hello,

   So I work as a QA tech at my facility and it is cold, about 40-50 degrees, on the production floor.  Since a lot of what I test and check requires me to use my hands they get cold pretty fast.  I have tried two different pairs of "cold resistant gloves" only for them to not work.  They either fell apart, which isn't good due to possible foreign material, or they just don't work.  I need suggestions.  I need something durable and long lasting.  Something that will keep my hands and fingers warm.  Cold and water resistant a must.  BTW I have to wear latex gloves as well so if that helps with suggestions.  Thanks in advance for your tips and suggestions.

Ah, you must be in a meat packing house! I hear you completely.

 

There really aren't that many options available that allow for any dexterity at all. There are a lot of thermal gloves, but you cannot feel an thing and can barely hold a thermometer

 

There might be something here.

Hey Charles,

    Some of the other workers have complained, but since they are moving around they stay pretty warm.  I was hoping to find something test it out and then suggest it to the facility if they worked out good.
