St. Paul, Minn. (October 20, 2011) – Ergodyne today announced the safet​y-industry exclusive addition of three ProFlex® Gloves utilizing revolutionary OutDry® waterproofing technology. Simply put, OutDry® offers the most advanced waterproof/windproof breathable technology on the market today. Combine that with the task-specific, work smart fit of an Ergodyne ProFlex® glove, and you’ve got three supercharged, water-repelling, wind-stopping gloves on your hands.

Specifically, the ProFlex® Glove line is growing to include models 925F(x)OD Thermal Waterproof Dorsal Impact-Reducing Glove with OutDry®, 819OD Thermal Waterproof Gauntlet Glove with OutDry® and 818OD Thermal Waterproof Utility Glove with OutDry®. In addition to their job-specific technical attributes, each glove now offers the most extreme in waterproofing, using a patented lamination process that directly bonds the OutDry® membrane to the inside of the glove’s outer shell to create one seamless waterproof entity. Signed, sealed, delivered, if we do say so ourselves.

“The days of pulling out your waterproof insert and ruining your gloves are over,” said Tom Votel, president and CEO. “These ProFlex® OutDry® glove additions are just the beginning of the OutDry®/Ergodyne partnership. Stay tuned for more innovation from Ergodyne and our partner OutDry® in 2012!”

“We’re excited to kick things off with the announcement of OutDry® integration into some of Ergodyne’s best-selling gloves,” said Luca Morlacchi, co-founder and general manager of OutDry® “This is a strong partnership of two highly specialized manufacturers, and we look forward to further product integration with Ergodyne.”

Ideal for anyone working in wet and/or cold conditions, the three new ProFlex® OutDry® gloves will be available January 2012 at all authorized Ergodyne distributors. For more information, visit, email or call 800-225-8238 // (651) 642-9889.
