I purchased a similar glove previously because I wanted an all-purpose work glove that was waterproof on the back as well as the palm, but water seemed to go right through the rubber coating. The Northflex gloves are a reputable brand, more expensive, and claimed to be double-coated to prevent water intrusion, so I thought I’d give them a try. I haven’t had a chance to use them for work yet, but here are my initial impressions: The gloves have a warmer fleece lining than the other brand and appear to be a good choice for milder winter conditions. I put the gloves on and ran water over the rubber part while wringing my hands together and squeezing the palms closed for about 30 seconds. No water entered the gloves so these have proven to be better than my previous purchase concerning waterproofness (is that a word?). I love the additional cut resistant quality not just for work but as an all-purpose emergency preparedness glove where one may need to handle sharp metal or broken glass. The gloves are a bit stiff for a coated glove, but I believe this is because of the double rubber coating which seems to be responsible for keeping the water out. If you are also considering purchasing these gloves because of the waterproof construction, keep in mind that the same rubber coating meant to keep water out means that in the event they do get wet they will take FOREVER to dry, so do yourself a favor and buy more than one pair. This and the stiff rubber are the reason for deducting one point on the rating.
