To protect your hands which brand do you recommend?

Recently we received a new product called Astro Grip, a power free nitrile glove. Bright orange for high visibility, and 6 mil, no latex.

All gloves are disposable, but, I get your point. Since you raised the subject I wanted to chime in on a glove that I've come to appreciate for its pure utility. And, when I'm done with it, I toss it. The brand is MaxiFlex by Endurance model 34-835. The palms are beaded and the backs are breathable. They are not oil or solvent proof, but will allow one to pick up the smallest washers from the floor or storage tray while keeping your hands warm, dry, and as I mentioned, breathable. Good work gloves are hard to find but these are readily available with a bit of on-line searching. Yes they come in small, medium and large. My hands are not large so the mediums are snugly fitting. Nearly as tractable has having no gloves on at all.

Diamond Grip is another brand that works well. I don't mind getting my hands dirty, Fred, but I draw the line at drain oil and harsh chemicals.

Cheers,
Wes

We use the rubber/mesh ones. You can pick up the yellow ones at Harbor Freight for $2 or I buy the blue ones wholesale for about .70

I like them because you can still feel and have good movement, but they also provide good protection. Plus the backs breath, which helps.
But they are cheap enough that you can just pitch them when they get old. The only thing you can't do is leave them in the sun, if you do they get sticky and it never goes away.

I don't mind getting my hands dirty, but don't like them cut, burned, scraped, or anything else, hence I wear gloves, a lot.

My main disposable glove is CostCo Kirkland Signature™ Nitrile Exam Gloves 400ct.

Even if you have no latex allergy, petroleum products can get through latex gloves.

The CostCo gloves aren't all that durable and yet I have cut myself through them without puncturing the glove. They will keep the blood off your car. At least they're cheap.

Here is another option. Keeps cuts scrapes and dryness / cracking due to solvent exposure to a minimum. For long term solvent work, I do use some heavy rubber gloves for for valve covers, etc., that don't require much time, these work great and don't "grow" like the exam gloves.
