Gloves are waterproof

Ergodyne has added its 925F(x)OD Thermal Waterproof Dorsal Impact-Reducing Glove with OutDry,® 819OD Thermal Waterproof Gauntlet Glove with OutDry and 818OD Thermal Waterproof Utility Glove with OutDry to its ProFlex® glove line using OutDry waterproofing technology. Each glove uses a lamination process that bonds the OutDry membrane to the inside of the glove's outer shell, creating a seamless waterproof glove.

Ergodyne also has launched its ProFlex 813 Fleece Utility Glove, which offers a weather-resistant, heavyweight fleece shell construction. Nylon backing on the glove's fingers and knuckles reportedly provides durability. Abrasion-resistant, textured PVC on the palm allows for a good grip. And a gathered elastic wrist with a gauntlet cuff provides protection from the elements.

Additionally, Ergodyne has added its redesigned N-Ferno® 6970 Extreme Balaclava with Hot Rox™ to its N-Ferno Extreme Warming product line. The balaclava captures heat from each exhaled breath and brings it back to the wearer's core, which is said to ease breathing and allow workers to maintain full lung capacity.
