Youngstown FR waterproof UltimateIt may be a snow day for the kids, but for you, wintry weather doesn't mean a day off. On days like these, turn to the Youngstown® FR Waterproof Ultimate Lined with Kevlar® glove to get work done safely and in comfort. Ideal for utility and oil/gas workers that need to complete tasks in unforgiving temperatures, the glove offers a unique combination of warmth, FR properties and unparalleled protection in cold, wet and wintry conditions.

Using the highest grade materials available, the Youngstown Waterproof Ultimate lined with Kevlar® glove features a four-layer system beginning with an outer shell made from 100 percent soft and supple cowhide leather. The high quality leather has been treated for FR properties making it oil resistant, flame resistant, heptane gas resistant, and abrasion resistant. The glove is flame resistant to ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) D-6413 and F2302 levels, which means the glove has been tested under an open flame without igniting, melting or dripping. It also protects against arc flash accidents with an arc rating of 55 cal/cm2 giving it a level 4 Hazard Risk Category (HRC), making it ideal for tasks such as
wire splicing.  

The second layer of the glove utilizes a FR Nomex® lining, a "go to" material for endless products protecting firefighters, Air Force pilots and industrial workers. A flame-resistant aromatic nylon, which will not burn, drip, melt or support combustion in the air, the layer also adds insulation keeping hands both warm as well as protected.

The third layer of the Youngstown Waterproof Ultimate lined with Kevlar® glove consists of an FR Porelle®  membrane which is both extremely waterproof, windproof and highly breathable. The breathability ensures sweat can escape and does not remain trapped in the glove.  Lightweight, flexible and thermally stable, it is yet another layer that ensures hands stay warm and dry.

Finally, the glove is completely lined with Kevlar®, a material best known for its use in military and S.W.A.T. protective gear both domestically and abroad. Lightweight and extraordinarily strong with five times the strength of steel on an equal-weight basis, the layer is cut-resistant protecting hands from sharp tools and wire.  The layer also contributes to the overall durability of the glove.

These superior materials are combined with the best of Youngstown technology creating a performance leather glove that fits right and offers excellent dexterity and durability.  Chock full of high quality details you'll find a 4-inch safety cuff and an extra layer of leather on vital portions on the back and front of hand including on the knuckles, fingertips, saddle and palm.  The ergonomic 3D glove pattern with finger side panels to form-fit the hand has become an industry favorite among pole workers and utility engineers alike for its many features including its unsurpassed tight grip, even in wet conditions.  An extra-wide pattern designed to lessen hand fatigue allows workers to climb and grasp tools for extended periods of time making the glove as efficient as it is comfortable, functional and safe.
