ProFlex® Winter Gloves - 876WP & 816

St. Paul, Minn. (December 5, 2006) – Anyone who works outdoors doesn’t need to be told that appropriate clothing is a vital factor in battling the elements, especially during the cold winter months. Ergodyne today introduces four new products to help protect workers from harsh winter weather conditions.

“We understand outdoor jobsites often become less safe and less comfortable during the winter months,” said Tom Votel, president and CEO of Ergodyne. “So we’re introducing several new products that give workers more comfort and safety without restricting their movement.”

Ergodyne’s ProFlex® 876WP Hi-Vis Thermal Waterproof Gloves are the ultimate cold-weather solution for outside work. Lined throughout with 40g 3M Thinsulate and a Hipora breathable waterproof membrane, the 876WP is designed to trap heat and to repel wind and water. The gloves also include a breathable neoprene cuff with hook-and-loop closure, abrasion-resistant textured PVC on the palm and fingers and padded knuckles for added protection. 3M Scotchlite tape zones on the back and wrist increase worker visibility.
ProFlex® 876WPs are available in S, M, L, XL and 2XL.

ProFlex® 816 Thermal Flip-Top Gloves offer workers the warmth they need to protect their extremities without sacrificing dexterity. Flip-top fingers and thumb are secured open with hook-and-loop tabs, allowing digits the freedom to move. The polyester knit outside and soft fleece cuff provide comfort while the windproof, water repellent micro fleece inside ensures ultimate protection from nature’s brutal temperatures. These machine washable gloves are available in S, M, L, XL and 2XL.

Ergodyne’s line of N-Ferno® Warming Products includes the “Be Tenacious” knit cap, designed to keep workers both warm and comfortable. The soft CoolMax lining in this snug, one-size cap wicks sweat and prevents that annoying itch that comes with most winter hats.

A second new hat for the season is Ergodyne’s GloWEAR® Hi-Vis Knit Hat, designed to keep night and early morning workers warm and visible. Offered in high-visibility lime or orange, the toasty knit hats are made with a 100 percent acrylic shell and a soft, comfortable 3M Thinsulate 40g flex insulation lining. 3M Scotchlite reflective tape trims the outside of the cap, creating maximum visibility. The GloWEAR® hi-vis knit hat comes in one size. For more information, visit, email or call 800-225-8238 // (651) 642-9889.
