If you need gloves that can protect your hands in harsher weather conditions and cold environments without compromising dexterity, the Ansell ActivArmr 97-631 Thermal Work Gloves are an excellent choice. The PVC coating offers enhanced grip and flexibility regardless of temperature, while the blend of nylon with acrylic in the liner helps to provide protection from minor cuts and grazes. With a decent level of tear-resistance, these durable gloves are designed to last.
Which Size Gloves Should I Wear?
The ActivArmr Cold-Resistant Gloves are available in a range of sizes, making it easier to find the best fit for you. To discover which size you should wear, start by measuring the length of your hand and the circumference of your palm (as seen below).

Who Can Use the Thermal Work Gloves?
The Ansell Cold Weather Gloves are ideal for outdoor use in harsh weather conditions, but there are some indoor tasks that they can be useful for. Industries these gloves can be particularly handy in include construction, cold storage, and utilities industries. Tasks where these gloves can offer some protection include (but are not limited to):
- Outdoor winter work
- Food processing
- Machinery and equipment maintenance
- Infrastructure maintenance
- Light-duty oil and gas industry job tasks
Ideal for Cold Environments
These medium-duty gloves are perfect for a range of uses in colder environments. To keep your hands warm while wearing, the ActivArmr Gloves liner is made with a blend of knitted thermal materials including a soft acrylic interior, giving the gloves a level 1 convective cold resistance. With a PVC coating the gloves are able to offer superb grip even in colder conditions, ensuring consistently safe handling regardless of temperature. Handling cold objects is made easier too, with the level 2 contact cold resistant design allowing comfortable brief contact with materials below 0ºC.
Low-Risk Mechanical Protection
The gloves are also designed to be strong enough for an adequate level of cut, abrasion, and tear resistance to protect against minor wounds and grazes, ensuring both protection in low-risk environments and a longer life-span for the gloves. Rather than compromise strength for comfort, these gloves give you the best of both worlds and offer form-fitting dexterity and flexibility with optimal protection.
