Our Picks for Top Winter Postal Gloves

It’s finally snowing in Southeastern Wisconsin!  After a couple of days in the 50’s, the temperatures dropped, and about 6” inches of snow fell.  One of the most important things to protect when shoveling snow or when the temperatures fall is your hands. By covering up your hands, you can protect them from the elements and keep them warm

When out delivering mail, it is imperative to wear the right glove that will allow you the flexibility to do your job but also give you the protection that you need.  Here are three of our favorite gloves for the postal uniform program:

Thermolite® Gloves

The Thermolite® base/Lycra® gloves feature hollow core fibers to retain body heat and keep hands warm without overheating. The breathable fabric moves moisture away from the skin to keep hands dry. Model N1026375 is made of medium weight and feature the Exclusive Control Dot® palm for handling objects – great for gripping mail pieces. Available in sizes M-L.



Thinsulate™ Convertible Gloves/Mittens

Thinsulate™Insulation in these gloves provides lightweight warmth. The mitten converts to a half finger glove for dexterity on demand. Features a leather palm patch for grip and durability. Available in sizes M-L.




Gore-Tex® Insulated Gloves

Tough and durable, these gloves feature a Gore-Tex® membrane and Thinsulate™ insulation to provide warmth and superior protection from wetness. The nylon outer shell is tough and durable to prevent ripping while the rubber  tex palm keeps a solid grip. Available in sizes S-XL.




All gloves reviewed are reimbursable for the Type 1 uniforms program. What is your favorite glove to wear in the winter?

Stay Warm with Postal Sweaters

With the temperatures falling, it’s time to take your warm winter clothes out of storage and back into circulation. It might even be time to add a few more pieces to your wardrobe. Sweaters are a great “go to” item to keep on hand during the fall, winter and even spring months when you need an extra layer against the cooler temps. The postal uniform program offers a selection of sweaters tailored for each uniform category.

Type 1 Postal Uniform Sweaters for Letter Carriers and Motor Vehicle Operators are available in a flat knit or bulky knit zippered front cardigan. Both styles feature two pockets and a crew neck.

Type 2 Postal Uniform Sweater for Retail Clerk and Window Operations are unisex and feature a button down front with eyelets on the front panel for name badges. The jacquard knit keeps clerks comfortably warm. Also, button down Sweater Vests are available.

Type 3 Postal Uniform Sweater for Mail Handlers feature two front pockets with inside elbow patches. The zippered cardigan is made from a jersey knit and includes a stand up collar for additional neck warmth.

Keeping warm this winter season is no sweat with postal uniform sweaters!
