What are my Options?
- Insert Trick - This last year I have been using a new trick to get me through on gloves for the winter. It is practical, cheap and effective. I take my regular work gloves and insert a pair of thin winter gloves on the inside. If I know I'm going to get wet I cover the inner gloves with rubber gloves to protect water from getting through. If the inner gloves get wet then I switch them out for a new pair to keep my hands warm. The regular work gloves run about $5-$30, the inserts about $5 - $10 and the rubber gloves $2.50-$5 per box.
If you have anything less than a large size hand, it can be very difficult to find the right size glove. A lot of women need a medium or a small and most stores only sell the large and xlarge sizes. I recommend purchasing online and buying a couple of pairs just in case one gets damaged. Some Wal-marts do carry the smaller sizes. The right size glove can shave off a lot of time when it comes to securing a load.
The question you have to ask yourself here is whether you want dirty fingers at the price of looking cool.
Drying your Gloves
Put wet gloves under the foot warmer when driving. They should be dry by the time your done driving for the day.
