From the GORE-TEX® liner to the fleece and even the pulls, we source the very best materials to make Mainers. That's why we're pleased to share that every pair of Mainers comes complete with pulls from fellow Maine company Sterling Rope. Sterling is a legendary rope manufacturer whom tens of thousands of climbers, arborists, and rescue professionals around the world trust to keep them safe every day. We're proud to feature them in our products.
Accepting Future Orders in 2021
Our parent company, Tempshield® Cryo-Protection®, has been selected to provide cryogenic PPE to organizations involved in the distribution of a very promising COVID-19 vaccine. Efficient distribution of an effective vaccine will help save lives, so we must give that first priority.
Thank you for your patience! We look forward to bringing you the very best winter gloves and mitts you've ever worn, but we have some work to do.
Warmth and Dexterity
The Mainers waterproof winter gloves strike the perfect balance of warmth, dexterity, and durability. It’s simply the best winter gloves you can buy, whether you're cutting through powder or digging your car out of the driveway.
By sheltering all four fingers in the same waterproof, heavily insulated space, Mainers winter mittens keep you warm in the harshest conditions. The flexible materials and anatomically-optimized construction provide a freedom of movement other snow mittens can’t touch.
Mainers Extreme Cold Winter Glove and Mitt
Built to go wherever winter takes you.
Durable and Tough
Lightweight and flexible yet built to take a beating, these waterproof gloves and mitts can handle the harshest winters.
Combining a durable water repellent outer layer with a waterproof and breathable interior membrane ensures that the insulation inside works, no matter how wet your environment.
Warm, Dry, and Comfortable
A moisture-wicking interior helps eliminate sweat build-up that can leave you feeling cold and clammy.
Our team has been building extreme cold protection for more than 40 years. With customers like NASA, the U.S. Military, NATO, and more, perfection is non-negotiable.
Millions of Stitches (and Counting)
We've been in business since 1980, and many of our employees were with us at the very beginning. That translates to millions of stitches, hundreds of thousands of cuts, hundreds of industry-leading improvements, and countless satisfied customers. When it comes to providing protection from extreme cold, our expertise is world class.
The Glove & Mitt Go Through Rigorous Testing
Watch how we tested Mainers Extreme Cold Gloves to prove they're ✓waterproof, ✓durable, and ✓warm.
Tested like no other glove. Our Mainers gloves and mitts have been subjected to the very same rigorous testing we put our cryogenic gloves through. Why? Because we build the best, you deserve the best, and well, we wouldn't put our names on anything short of that.
After 30 minutes in a 0°F cooling bath, Mainers outperformed leading competitors.
How long do Mainers last in the cold? Well, longer than our testers can stay awake for, that's for sure.
Stitched strong, our gloves and mitts are built to stand up to daily abuse. Don't try this at home.
Tested: Water Repellant
What does this mean for you? You can keep your mitts on while ice fishing, shovel slush without a worry, and ski care-free while any wet just rolls right off your hands.
Both gloves and mitts undergo the same vacuum testing for waterproofness that our cryogenic gloves go through.
