Why Should I Trust the Skytec Argon Xtra Fleece Lined Gloves?

You can trust the Skytec Argon Xtra Fleece Lined Gloves because they are certified to a number of EN standards. These ensure that the gloves say exactly what they say they do. You can find the details of the standards below:

EN 388

Property Resistance Level
Abrasion Resistance Level 3
Cut Resistance Level 1
Tear Resistance Level 3
Puncture Resistance Level 1
ISO Cut Resistance N/A

EN 511

Property Resistance Level
Convective Cold Resistance Level 1
Contact Cold Resistance Level 2
Water Permeability Level 0

How Comfortable Are the Skytec Cold Resistant Gloves?

The Skytec Gloves are designed with a soft fleece lining that improves comfort in cold conditions. This fleece lining is soft and cushions the hands, meaning that the gloves don't feel particularly bulky to wear. Their flexible nature ensures that hand fatigue isn't caused by the gloves, perfect for a long shift at work.

How Warm Are the Skytec Argon Xtra Cold Resistant Fleece Lined Gloves?

The Skytec Gloves feature level 1 convective cold resistance and level 2 contact cold resistance. This means that the gloves will protect your hands when handling items that have a temperature as low as -20°C. This is particularly ideal for freezer work when you can expect to be handling freezing items.

How Flexible Are the Skytec Argon Xtra Gloves?

The gloves feature a PVC sponge touch finish that is quite flexible. Although the gloves are thick, they are dexterous enough to enable the handling of tools, equipment, boxes and other similar materials. This flexibility is supported by a contour grip pattern that makes handling easy, perfect for handling tasks.

Are the Skytec Argon Gloves Waterproof?

While the Skytec Argon Gloves aren't completely waterproof, they are fitted with hydropellent technology that can repel the majority of the water they come into contact with. This means that you can handle items in a freezer without your hands becoming wet, or work in rainy weather and remain completely dry.

Which Size Should I Choose?

The Skytec Argon Thermal Gloves are available in three different sizes, meaning that you should be able to find the size that's right for you. To measure your hand, measure the circumference of your hand around the knuckles (excluding your thumb) with your hand open and your fingers together, as seen in the image below.

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.

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.

Very warm!
Thursday, 12 March 2020  | 

I bought these because there are days when the ordinary Argon gloves are not warm enough. On the day that I tried them out it was not very cold and my hands started sweating, so getting the gloves on and off became difficult.
The waterproofing goes all the way up to the wrist, so the cuff is quite tight; that might be an advantage when the temperature is below freezing. The outer material is textured rubber, with random ribbing on the fingers and palms to improve grip on icy tools.
The palm size is right for my hand (size 9) but the fingers are too long for me, so not a perfect fit.
