Which Size Should I Choose?
The Portwest Gloves are available in three sizes that should be suitable for most users. To find your perfect pair, please measure the circumference and length of your palm and match the results to the table below.

How Dexterous Are the Portwest Wintershield A280 Gloves?
Portwest have made these gloves using high-tech manufacturing processes, and because of this they have managed to create extremely warm gloves that retain dexterity even in sub-zero conditions. They are quite thin, and when you wear them you'll find that you can flex and move your hands almost to the same degree as if you are not wearing the gloves. This is ideal for operating tools and machinery, as the gloves won't compromise on your abilities.
How Much Grip Do the Portwest Wintershield Work Gloves Provide?
On the front of the Wintershield Gloves is a synthetic leather liner. This liner is a little coarser than the back of the gloves, meaning that when the gloves get a bit wet when handling materials, their grip will rapidly increase. The grippy design helps to improve worker productivity, as less time will be spent trying to get a proper hold on materials.
How Comfortable Are the Portwest Wintershield Fleece Lined Work Gloves?
The gloves feel impressively warm, snug and comfortable while you have got them on. An interior fleece liner is soft around the hands, and as the gloves don't compromise dexterity it means that you won't suffer as much hand fatigue as you would wearing other thermal gloves. This makes them useful for long shifts at work, ideally in the warehousing, forklift and packaging industries.
Why SHould I Trust the Portwest Wintershield Thermal Work Gloves?
You can trust the Wintershield Gloves A280 because they have been tested to EN 388 and EN 511, both of which ensure that they do exactly what they say. EN 388 tests the gloves resistance to abrasion, cuts, punctures and tears, and EN 511 tests the gloves resistance to air temperature, contact cold and water. These gloves achieved the following:
|Hazard ||Level of Resistance |
|Abrasion Resistance ||Level 2 |
|Cut Resistance ||Level 1 |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 2 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 1 |
|Hazard ||Level of Resistance |
|Convective Cold Resistance ||Level 1 |
|Contact Cold Resistance ||Level 2 |
|Water Permeability ||N/A |
Can I Use the Portwest Work Gloves With Water?
Unfortunately, these gloves are not built to withstand water. The palms can withstand a little, so if you're working in a freezer handling materials or working outdoors after a rain storm, should be fine. If you require similar gloves that do have a waterproof coating, then we would recommend you take a look at the Ejendals Tegera 295 Waterproof Thermal Work Gloves.
How Warm Is the Knitwrist?
The knitwrist extends a little further than the wrist, and features the same warm fleece interior liner that keeps your hands warm. If you require gloves that offer a knitwrist that stretches further down the arm, then we would recommend the Ejendals Tegera 296 Insulated Waterproof Work Gloves, which have a far longer wrist.
