Cold Weather Glove System (CWGS)

The system that was selected by the U.S. Army for the next generation Cold Weather Glove System (CWGS). The interchangeable system is comprised of five individual gloves with varying levels of temperature protection and is customizable depending upon mission requirements.


Each glove within the system is designed as “no melt, no drip” to protect against rapid heating during combat operations. Each glove can be worn independently or layered to provide scalable protection against a variety of temperatures. Combining elements of the CWGS provides “fast doffing” capabilities, or rapid removal for short-term manual dexterity.
