TRENTON, ME – Tempshield®, the leader in certified products for the safe handling of cryogenic materials, is proud to introduce its new Mainers™ brand. Launched via Kickstarter, the brand’s premier offering, the Mainers glove and mitt, is a no-compromise, 100% US-made product designed to provide the ultimate protection and performance while enjoying extreme cold weather outdoor activities.
The move leverages 40 years of experience and knowhow creating cryogenic protection gloves, aprons, and gaiters trusted by the US Armed Forces, NASA, NATO, the CDC, and more.
“Tempshield has spent the past 40 years making incredibly effective, high extreme cold protection,” explained Jim Woldenberg, CEO of Tempshield. “Introducing the Mainers brand allows us to take the expertise and manufacturing excellence of Tempshield and not only expand it into everyday life but to grow jobs and manufacturing here on the shores of Maine.”
Woldenberg explained that making their technology available to outdoor enthusiasts makes perfect sense.
“Being that we’re based in Maine, our company is made up of many individuals who embrace the outdoors even in the deep of winter,” Woldenberg said. “But whether they’re skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, or simply shoveling the driveway, having hands that are warm, dry, and protected from the elements is crucial not only to having an enjoyable time but is also imperative to safety. As an industry leader in protection from extreme cold, we thought who better to produce a product designed from the ground up to protect in harsh outdoor conditions?”
After more than 2 years of intensive research and development, The Mainers glove and mitt are ready!
Constructed of only high-quality durable materials, both the glove and mitt feature a combination of 4-way stretch outer fabric that’s treated with a durable water-resistant finish. Next, dual insulative layers utilize a combination of 3M Thinsulate™ and Polartec® Power Grid™ are specifically positioned to multiply warmth and increase cold protection, while a layer of breathable Gore-Tex membrane stops water from entering. Inside the glove, plush Protec® premium microfleece provides comfort, while the Dupont Silvadur™ finish prevents the growth of microbes and bacteria. On palm and finger tips, super soft premium leather provides both a dependable grip in the coldest conditions, and a sturdy wind break for activities like skiing and snowmobiling.
In addition to premiere textiles such as Durastretch®Tweave® and Gore-Tex® waterproof and breathable membranes, the pulls are manufactured using the same genuine Sterling® rope trusted by climbers, arborists, and firemen.
“We set out to create the best winter glove you can buy, plain and simple,” Woldenberg said. “Literally every stitch, fabric, manufacturing technique, and component is the best possible. Buying a pair of Mainers gloves means buying a pair of gloves that will provide superior protection and performance for the next decade.”
Mainers gloves and mitts launch November 6th, 2020 on Kickstarter. For more information or sign up for updates visit www.mymainers.com.
