Headquartered in Portland Oregon, Cestusline Inc has introduced many remarkable gloves over the years and Deep Grip Winter is no exception. Modelled after the best-selling oil-resistant Deep Grip Impact glove, Deep Grip Winter’s insulation, MicroSable™, sets it apart from other insulated oilfield gloves.
Inspired by silver fox fur, MicroSable™ is an anti-microbial microfiber that feels like no other industrial safety glove lining. MicroSable™ has been tested to out-perform Thinsulate® in extreme climates, which has led many major oil operations in Alaska, Canada and North Dakota to introduce Deep Grip Winter into their safety programme as the temperatures plunge.
Beyond the furry insulation, Deep Grip Winter has a waterproof and windproof membrane that provides additional anti-microbial functions. This membrane is unique in that it still remains breathable while not letting water in.
Deep Grip Winter mirrors the features of the Deep Grip gloves and includes Cestusline’s most requested, oil-resistant and cut-resistant palm, SkidX™.
SkidX™ adds a surprising level of flexibility for a heavy duty glove. The SkidX™ palm consists of a one-piece palm for additional durability and double stitching with Kevlar® thread. The reinforced stitching is designed to mimic the natural folds of the hand to increase durability in common wear points.
Deep Grip Winter features heat-resistant thermoplastic rubber (TPR) impact shields that bend with hand movement and offer continuous impact protection from fingertips to wrist. Additional segmentation makes the TPR flexible to reduce hand strain during use. Unlike competing gloves, all TPR impact shields in the Cestusline family are affixed to the glove in three ways to prevent lifting during extended wear or oily conditions.
Deep Grip Winter comes in a high-visibility colour scheme for added visibility, with a reinforced saddle between thumb and finger, in sizes S to 4XL. This glove has received an EN cut level-three rating and is CE certified.
The best way to understand the Deep Grip Winter glove is to try them yourself. They are available for distribution or end-user purchase. Visit the company website for further product information.
