Milwaukee Work Mittens Review

milwaukee work mittens

A little late for this winter, but ready in time for next, the new Milwaukee work mittens look like a great addition to their clothing line. The gloves feature a Smartswipe tip to allow for the use of smartphones and tablets. Triple-stitched reinforced seams along the thumb deliver enhanced durability, and the nylon flex wrist closure delivers a nice and secure fit. The Milwaukee work mittens also use a breathable lining, so your hands stay warm, but don’t sweat during the workday. Finally, Milwaukee added their signature terry cloth sweat wipe to the wrist guards.

The upper section of these excellent Milwaukee mittens consists of windproof, waterproof, and breathable HESTRA Triton three-layer polyamide fabric base and leather goatskin palm. The removable Sherpa lining is bolstered by a polyester/fiberfill insulation. In addition to the nylon flex closure, Milwaukee also includes a carabiner. More on that later.

Using the Milwaukee Work Mittens

Work gloves typically do a great job. Sometimes, however, they tend to restrict blood flow and movement. That leads to cold fingers which can get stiff on the jobsite. With the Milwaukee work mittens, your body’s natural heat can warm your fingers as they rest in their natural, unseparated positions. Plus, giving certain “hand signals” to your foreman won’t get you thrown off the jobsite.

Sure, operating the controls on your Milwaukee M18 Force Logic 750 MCM Crimper might be more difficult, but we’ve discovered some great workarounds. For one, “Hey Siri!” does wonders. With Siri, Google, or even Alexa lending a hand, we discovered that One-Key controls can help you semi-automate your tools…sort of. In any case, the grip of these new Milwaukee mittens gives you a secure hold on all your power tools. When you’ve got snow, sleet, and ice, you could lose a finger grip at any moment. With the mittens, all fingers are united into a single vice-like grip that won’t let go.

Another great feature has to do with warm weather use. Rather than store these mittens away at the end of the season (which is like 2 weeks for our friends up in Canada), use them for tool storage. Grabbing a carabiner, we clipped our Milwaukee mittens to our belt and used it to carry Milwaukee hand tools and even a small Milwaukee M12 hammer drill.


All in all, you can go wrong with the Milwaukee Work Mittens. They provide warmth, durability, and they cuddle your fingers like you stuck them wrist deep into the unshorn coat of an Australian sheep. You can’t buy warmth like that…oh wait, yes you can.
