Durable, dexterous, and comfortable, Youngstown's Waterproof Winter Plus feature a soft and insulating microfleece liner, a waterproof/windproof inner membrane, and a form-fitting outer shell. This highly functional winter glove is ideal for any number of winter activities--from heavy duty work like chopping wood or clearing snow to recreational activities like ice fishing or skiing. This version comes in large, and it's also available in small, medium, X-large, and XX-large.
The Waterproof Winter Plus has a terry cloth thumb that's great for wiping sweat and debris or even your nose. The palm side is extensively reinforced with non-slip reinforcement to enhance grip while providing lasting durability, and the supportive neoprene cuff with Velcro closure locks out the cold and snow. Machine washable for easy care.
Youngstown's waterproof technology separates this glove from other winter gloves. Numerous winter gloves in the market are simply "lined" but do not offer a moisture barrier membrane. Lined gloves are fine in dry conditions, but once precipitation is present, lined gloves lose their effectiveness--once your hand is wet it gets cold much sooner.
The Waterproof Winter Plus gloves feature a membrane that's waterproof, windproof, and breathable. This specialized membrane blocks the water from reaching your hand, keeping your hands warm and dry. At the same time, the membrane allows for your sweat to escape to help regulate comfort and temperature inside the glove.
Youngstown's focus has always been in the performance work glove realm, and its gloves are built to be as durable as possible while still maintaining dexterity and comfort. However, customers find unexpected uses for Youngstown gloves, such as biking, rock climbing, scuba diving, obstacle courses, horse riding, and more. This dual functionality of work and sport is extremely prevalent in Youngstown's winter models, with hunting, ice fishing, skiing, and snowboarding just some of the winter activities that this glove has found its way to.
A Note On Warmth
Temperature is subjective from person to person, and Youngstown have had users comment that their gloves didn't keep their hands warm and others say the glove was too hot. Youngstown designs its gloves to be as dexterous as possible while still providing warmth and waterproof technology, so different hands will have different reactions.
Additionally, your level of body movement can also determine your comfort level. If you are working and moving your core temperate will stay higher and as a result your hands will too. However, if you are sitting in freezing temperatures watching a ball game or not moving, your hands are more likely to get cold. Should you need protection in extremely cold temperatures, Youngstown recommends its Waterproof Winter XT and the 200 gram Thinsulate. However, if you are in cold, wet temperatures and doing work that requires dexterity and durability you will really appreciate these Waterproof Winter Plus gloves.
Sizing Your Glove
Use a cloth tape measure on the hand you use the most, and measure from crook between your thumb and index finger straight across to the base of the pinky and then all the way around back to where you started. Based on the circumference of your palm (excluding the thumb), here's a general guideline to sizing:
- Small: 8.0 to 8.5 inches
- Medium: 8.5 to 9.0 inches
- Large: 9.0 to 9.5 inches
- Extra Large: 9.5 to 10.0 inches
- Double Extra Large: 10.0 to 10.5 inches
Each customer has a different belief for the life expectancy of their gloves. Furthermore, it is not uncommon that the glove you have selected is not a match to the job you are performing. Because of this, Youngstown Glove offers its unconditional guarantee: If you are not satisfied with your gloves, Youngstown Glove will replace the pair or work with you to get you into the right model.

This is a decent glove if you dont plan on actually getting it wet. (putting it under a faucet isn't really a good test). In actual use, I've found that the gloves are more water "resistant", not waterproof. They start out fine, but after 10 minutes of handling wet lines, the inside starts to get wet and cold real fast. I still wear them, but shelf them for PVC lobsterman gloves when I know they're really going to get wet.
On the flip side, if you're only going to get them wet occasionally, or accidentally, these will be fine. (chances are though, such people won't be shopping for a glove labeled "waterPROOF"). There could also be more insulation... in the future, I dont think I'll consider a glove with a thin fleece lining to be a "winter" glove.
On the good side, the dexterity is good, enough to operate a handheld VHF radio, (dont expect to send text messages with them) and after 3 months of constant abuse, they've held up great.
3 stars though for not living up to a major selling point.
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.
Also, I work in Pyrotechnics and I do several winter shows a year. These gloves are tough enough that they have survived 3 shows. A normal pair of work gloves you'd buy at sears would normally last that long before they are worn through. I still use these gloves every day at my full time job at the base. 6 other people i work with have purchased them already.
...I'd also like to add that during a fireworks show i ran a nail through the outside shell of one of the fingers and they are STILL waterproof.
For use on the motorcycle... No. At 50° and 50mph, the cold wind cuts right thru these. Ya, i know 50° isn't very cold, but if its cutting thru at that temp it will be colder at lower temps.
Water proof? Yes. Like any other water proof glove, if you stick your hand in past the cuff, the water will still seep in. The waterproof layer is in the middle, so the outer layer will still get soaked

These are not waterproof at all. They are water resistant for a few minutes, maybe an hour or two under light conditions. They are very absorbent. Read morePublished 7 days ago by david
