Editor's View: The Freezemaster II Gloves are leather insulated thermal work gloves that are extra thick, making them ideal for extended shifts in a freezer while driving forklifts or operating machinery. The gloves have a waterproof membrane for handling wet items, while a comfortable fleece lining ensures comfort over extended use. The gloves aren't the most dexterous however, so if you do have to handle tricky items we'd recommend an alternative.

Customer Verdict: "Bought these for getting items out of the freezer as my circulation is bad and so my fingers can't cope with very low temperatures. The gloves are good, very warm and the medium size is a perfect fit thanks to the good size guidance" Sandra ★★★★★
