    Looking online but trying to find a local seller of disposable nitrile gloves, at least 5 mil thick I think.

    Harbor Freight has 5 mil, 7 mil and 9 mil. Doesn't look like I can search for in store availability though.

    Looked at various Amazon sellers, Lowe's, Home Depot, AutoZone, even Staples and Office Depot.

    So many different brands and so few reviews. Hard to judge quailty.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks. I heard they run kind of small, and I couldn't find the thickness on the HD website.

    If you wear them for any amount of time, Microflex dfk is the only way to go, and they are surprisingly durable for 8 mil. You also can remove and reuse them if you are careful taking them off, while keeping in mind they are supposed to be one use disposable gloves.

    I also use the Microflex SU690 for light duty work.

    If I am going to be wearing them for an extended period of time, absolutely. For short periods, they get a little pricey for disposable use, which is why I also have the cheaper ones.
