The EN511 standard defines the requirements and test methods for gloves which protect against convective or conductive cold down to -50°C. This cold can be linked to climatic conditions or industrial activity.

The EN388 standard applies to all types of protective gloves with respect to mechanical aggression from abrasion, cutting, tearing and puncture. These ratings are calculated from lab test results and do not replace the actual testing of the products in real conditions arising from use in the field. The results do however enable you to compare the performance between products. The Sub Zero Thermal Winter Glove has a EN388 rating of 3-2-2-2.

Great question! Here’s a couple of pointers to help you choose… The average male hand is probably a Large size glove, and the average female hand is probably a Medium size glove with this stretchy material. If you have ‘chunky’ shaped fingers or hand in general, you will be looking for a bigger than average size. Same goes if your fingers are longer than average! As a male, I have hands that fit a large size nicely – my middle finger is 90mm long, and my hand is 90mm wide at the knuckles lying flat on the table. Sizing is a relative thing to describe and this guide should not be classed as a definitive recommendation!
*** Please note that because these particular gloves are fleecy lined inside, it makes a medium size feel more like a small. In the same way, a large will feel slightly smaller – a bit like a medium, etc.
The rating consists of 4 numbers and applies to all types of gloves worn for protection. The 4 areas tested and rated are 1. Abrasion Resistance, 2. Blade Cut Resistance, 3. Tear Resistance & 4. Puncture Resistance. The rating is given by an independant office based on Lab testing results. They do not replace the actual testing of the product in the field – and in real conditions. The rating does however allow you to compare gloves against each other in these 4 areas.
These Cold weather Potting Gloves are rated as follows;
1. Abrasion Resistance (0-4) – Level 3; which is a Very Good result,
2. Blade Cut Resistance (0-5) – Level 2 ; which is a Good result,
