Well these really seem like great gloves…. but it was only a little below freezing when I tried them. But I am a baby in cold weather…. it is like I am 90 (actually my kid is even better then me 🙂 ) and I was wearing my Carhartt quilted work pants with my crappy USA made Welch big & tall suspenders which I actually like better than my high quality Carhartt suspenders. (When I am wearing 100 pound pants they seem to want to fall off! 🙂 ) I also was wearing my matching Carhartt quilted flannel lined jacket so I could show I am a total baby when it gets cold and of course I was wearing a beanie maybe even a liner. Also I looked stupid with matching dark brown pant and a jacket…. but last time I checked it was not a fashion show? Or was it? LOL 🙂
OKAY back to the point these G&F 1528XL GripMaster Cold Weather Work Gloves…. I probably like G&F dipped gloves the best. But I also just purchased the Dewalt cold weather gloves which I have not tried yet (I wanted some all black gloves and a review claimed the Dewalt logo would come off! It did not…. yet.).
Well the G&F gloves seemed pretty nice…. I open the equipment room door with my keys. Also I could find the correct key! I could use a Dixmor remote to do stuff…. also I could click the correct buttons on the remote (I believe every time)! I repaired a problem using wrenches. I could also control the wrenches and put the wrenches back in the wrap! I could put money in coin acceptors…. this started to get a little harder. But it was fine and I could control the quarter almost normally. I could get out my Gerber (which is starting to rust…. I just noticed) I believe it is called the diesel multi-pinch? LOL 🙂 I had it stored in that little utility / knife pocket I believe all carpenter pants have. This is good that I was able to get my multi-pinch tool out because it will come in handy for the last challenge. Picking up quarters from the ground! First quarter was a little hard…. second well I gave up and used a different method.
I also got these gloves lightly wet and the water did not seep in while I worked the whole time…. the whole 5 minutes. Yeah…. It was cold! LOL 🙂 It was probably an hour or two I believe?
I would recommend everyone trying these out…. plus they are pretty cheap I believe at $5.99. If you do purchase them let me know what you think.
