Portwest Wintershield Fleece Lined Thermal Work Gloves A280

Not many gloves manage to combine -20°C cold protection, dexterity and grip in quite the way that the Portwest Wintershield Fleece Lined Thermal Work Gloves A280 do. That's not all they offer either with their impressively warm and comfortable fleece interior, that helps to make the gloves perfect for assembly, outdoor work, freezer work, forklift driving and more.

Why SHould I Buy the Portwest Wintershield Fleece Lined Thermal Work Gloves?

The Portwest Wintershield Gloves A280 are the gloves you can trust. Dexterity, warmth and protection, mean that these are perfect for most cold weather tasks. Key points include:

  • Cold resistance up to -20°C
  • Good mechanical protection
  • Dexterity for handling tasks
  • Hi-vis markings
  • Stylish design perfect for all industries

Where Can I Use the Portwest Wintershield Fleece Lined Gloves?

The Portwest Wintershield Gloves are designed for conditions that reach as low as -20°C. They are grippy and dexterous with a little protection too, making them as well suited to outdoor DIY work as they are indoor cold store and freezer work. Some applications where they are recommended include:

These thin, warm gloves aren't recommended to the tasks above, and you'll find that they are as suitable for outdoor mechanical work as they are work that demands grip such as forklift truck driving. For winter work that doesn't demand high mechanical protection, these gloves are perfect.

How Warm Are the Portwest Wintershield Fleece Lined Thermal Gloves?

These high-tech thermal gloves will keep your hands cold in freezing, sub-zero conditions. They are proven to keep your hands warm even in conditions that drop to -20°C. This makes them ideal not just for outdoor winter work, but indoor work in freezers too.

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.

Please Measure the Circumference of Your Hand Before Purchase

Glove Size Palm Circ. Palm Length Length of Glove
8 (Medium) 203mm 182mm 240mm
9 (Large) 229mm 192mm 250mm
10 (Extra Large) 254mm 204mm 260mm

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:

EN 388

Hazard Level of Resistance
Abrasion Resistance Level 2
Cut Resistance Level 1
Tear Resistance Level 2
Puncture Resistance Level 1

EN 511

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.

What Materials Are the Portwest Wintershield Gloves Made From?

The Portwest Wintershield Gloves are made from a range of different materials. These include:

  • Synthetic leather
  • Fleece

What is EN 388?

You might have noticed that this product adheres to EN standard EN 388. EN standards ensure that the product you are buying meets the safety standards of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), the highest standards organisation recognised by and working on behalf of the European Union. To pass any EN standard, a PPE product must undergo some of the most rigorous safety tests around.

There are many EN standards that our gloves adhere to. However, the EN standard that we’re concerned about here is EN 388. EN 388 stands for Mechanical Resistance, and informs you of your gloves' resistance to abrasion, cuts, tears and punctures.

How Do I Read the EN 388 Score?

Simply speaking, the higher the score that this product achieves, the better the product will be at resisting that hazard. Products will score between Level 0 and Level 4 for abrasion, tears and punctures, and if they weren’t tested for that hazard you will see N/A written instead of a number.

Cuts are a little different and, with the EN 388 standard rewritten in 2016, it means that gloves will either be tested to cut resistance or ISO cut resistance (sometimes called TDM cut resistance). Gloves tested to cut resistance will score between Level 0 and Level 5, and gloves tested to ISO cut resistance will achieve a score between Level A and Level F with the higher letter offering better cut protection.

Where Can I Find Out More?

This is just a brief overview of EN standard EN 388 so you know where you are standing. For further information, you can see the Introductory EN 388 Blog in our Knowledge Centre.

What is EN 511?

You might have noticed that this product adheres to EN standard EN 511. EN standards ensure that the product you are buying meets the safety standards of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), the highest standards organisation recognised by and working on behalf of the European Union. To pass any EN standard, a PPE product must undergo some of the most rigorous safety tests around.

There are many EN standards that our gloves adhere to. However, the EN standard that we’re concerned about here is EN 511. EN 511 stands for all things cold, and means that your gloves have been tested for their convective cold resistance, contact cold resistance and water permeability properties.

How Do I Read the EN 511 Score?

Simply speaking, the higher the score achieved the better the product will be at resisting the hazard tested. For the first two tests (convective cold resistance and contact cold resistance), the product will achieve between a Level 0 and a Level 4. The higher the score the better the resistance, with a Level 0 score meaning that it failed and an N/A score meaning that the product wasn’t tested for this hazard.

For water permeability the product will achieve either a Level 0 or a Level 1. Level 1 means that the product is waterproof, and Level 0 means that it isn't.
