I hate gloves and I hate coveralls. It would have to be extreme conditions before I would use them. Will probably use them when I ski in Utah though.

Y'all actually wear them? If you were playing with sewer rats I would understand. But as irrigation goes it is only dirt.

I rarely wear gloves. Only if I'm doing a lot of PVC glueing at a manifold.

If one tears, and your hand has become moist while wearing the first glove, non-powdered seem to me a difficult swap.

for all its worth.....my favorite is powdered latex in the home depot paint section. I stick a handful in my pocket when glewing

Maybe it's different in poly land, but where we glue a lot of PVC, both cement and primer are used often and are nasty stuff.

Ever read an MSDS sheet on those? Primer burns when it spills into a cut or bathes a torn hangnail, and from what I've heard, certain chemicals in it go through your skin, into your bloodstream and on to your liver.

I used latex gloves for a while but they tore easily. Sometimes I'd double up but still... I can't wear them in hot weather very long, I sweat like crazy and they get all squishy. I only want the disposables for working with chemicals.

I do use nitrile-coated knit gloves when I'm working on fixing a break in rocky soil. Better then tearing up my hands on whatever hidden construction debris was dumped into a trench too.
