  1. How are your hands?

    When I first started with cleaning hands back in March they were cracked and bleeding. Now I wear glove most of the time and only clean when the gloves are off. Hands are much better.
  2. Food prep gloves for viruses?

    Will disposable food prep gloves stop a virus? I think the answer is yes, but wanted to ask for other opinions. Full confession: I thought I had two boxes of good quality gloves. That was until I went looking for the gloves, and all I could find was one box. Amazon order history shows two...
  3. Anyone stocking up on exam gloves?

    Or are they already in short supply? I got a few boxes, but they start decomposing due to age. Mine are left over from construction.
  4. Decontamination procedure: Corona-virus

    Disinfecting incoming mail of Coronavirus OK, we all know about the Coronavirus. Looks to be hyper-contagious. I'm prepped, of course. I could quarantine the place for months. Plenty of water/food/fuel/sanitary supplies in stock. But it occurs to me that the virus could be carried inside...
  5. Looking for Gloves

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have a problem, and I need some real world advice, since all my Google searches have been less than productive. I need a pair of gloves that can keep my hands warm in below zero temperatures for a minimum of 12 hours without any means to warm up. Wind chills are a factor and the environment...
  6. Mechanix gloves for cold weather

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    How good are Mechanix gloves for cold weather? Cold weather is a subjective term. My definition is in the 20s and 30s doing work around the farm, feeding the chickens, taking care of the rabbits, maybe going fishing, hunting,,,, stuff like that. I am thinking about putting out some trotlines...

  8. Glove help

    Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    So having worn partially through another pair of gloves I feel near breaking point.:mad: These were cheap ski type gloves but still I expected some durability. I wear my gloves alot and apparently work them hard, breaking sticks, holding and carrying wood, general outdoor tasks etc. I know they...

    Reviews & Questions For Vendors Anyone have any reviews on these gloves? Does the kevlar give you enough cut resistance? Thanks in advance :thumb:
  10. Winter hand protection

    Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    As i left the house to visit the pistol range the other night, i felt the bitter Maryland night air. It was about 15 degrees and the cold cut through my Nomex gloves. I thought about switching to my Oakley combat gloves but realized, they probably wouldn't fair much better. While both gloves...
  11. Gloves that fit.

    Reviews & Questions For Vendors
    I simply cannot find gloves that fit me. According to "fit guides" I have found I should be wearing a medium. I try on countless gloves and the best I can find are a little tight and only my index finger fits, all other finger parts are too long killing the dexterity. Is my only option of...
  12. Neoprene gloves I use for hunting

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Several years ago I decided that I liked neoprene gloves over those regular bulky insulated gloves. One thing that I like about these gloves is the no slip grip. I think that these gloves have a better feel then regular gloves. One thing that I do not like is that they are only good down to...
  13. Work gloves

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    This is probably a little trivial but I'm having trouble finding decent work gloves and am hoping for recommendations. I like the feel of the leather but they seem to wear out quickly. Not nuts about the canvas gloves due to their response to water (soaking and then stiffening). Not only want...
  14. Gloves

    Urban Survival
    The knit gloves I've been using are far from warm enough for the Minnesota/Wisconsin winter, so now I'm looking for a new pair. I figured you guys spend plenty of time outdoors so you'd be good to ask. I'm looking for something as light and flexible as possible (I'd like to be able to operate...
