Thanks for the tip - you might find that those gloves will last a bit longer if you wear one size smaller; keep the gloves as skin tight as possible - that way they have a smaller chance of getting trapped in what ever you are putting back together. (Gloves look too floppy on your hand in your video)

I haven`t seen that Brand or color of glove, except maybe in the Hospitals or Medical Centers.

I agree that when they fit snug. less chance of catching them on something, and it is easier to work on parts.

I have the light blue HF Nitrile 5 mil gloves. they aren`t all that great, tear easly. I was doing some projects today, and went through 4 or 5 of them.

HF sells a Purple Nitrile 7mil glove that really holds up well.
and they also have a Black Nitrile 9mil that is better. both of these are longer and come above the wrist. they cost more but are worth it. waite for a sale, and use the 20% off coupon too, and get a free gift.

I use these gloves for most of my wrenching. Nylon knit back with a Polyurethane coated palm and fingers. if i get into oily and or greasy work, then I go to the Nitrile gloves.

Nylon Knit Gloves with Polyurethane Palm, Medium

thse are on sale now for $1.49. today we were at Costco, and I bought 4 packages of these same gloves in a 6 pack for $1.33 each.

Two layers

I used to go back and forth between different variations of nitrile gloves to keep my hands clean and thicker Mechanix knock-off gloves to protect from knuckle scrapes. The problem I had is that the heavier gloves would eventually get soaked with oil, brake fluid, or diesel fuel and get my hands impregnated with it every time i put the gloves on. The thinner gloves are great for keeping various chemicals off of my hands but tear pretty quickly. Now I've gone to wearing the thin cheap nitrile gloves and a pair of work gloves over them. It works out great and I can stop walking around with greasy fingernails and stop adding to the collection of scars on my hands.

I have used the really thick HF gloves, but they tend to trap the hand's moisture inside the glove, and it gets hot and nasty after awhile.

I'd be curious to try the CRC brand gloves, but I've never seen them anywhere!

Anyone know a source?

Thanks,

Packman

I use the same gloves too and have no problems even with small nuts n bolts or grease work - For squeaky clean work I remove them and don a new nitrile pair (wheel bearings etc)

No more stained hands, greasy nails, cut skin etc. The last ball joint change was smooth, Once I was done, I removed the gloves and washed my hands with soap - nice n clean in under a minute. Tossed them in a tray of water an simple green - theyre clean too.

What makes you think the pink gloves would make your hands sweat less? they are Nitrile as well as the HF gloves.

A side benefit to having your hands sweat, especially on a really hot day, your hands come out clean.

I keep a small bottle of Baby Powder in my tool box to powder my hands, so when I have to replace one of the Nitrile gloves I can get them on.

I use the same gloves and have been told to squirt some moisturizer in them and it might help. I'd rather have sweaty hands than grease covered and black.

I generally don't bother with gloves but I pre-soak my hands with moisturiser (to make them as soft as my face!) because they then come cleaner with hand cleaner later on.

I spray these down with degreaser and wash them out after a dirty job. I don't wrench daily so they dry out before my next use.
