I've been buying the HF blue 5 mil gloves for shop work & they last for a bit around oily/wrenching jobs but now looking at ebay(where there are many choices of weight) & also HF has a black 9mil glove thats a little more expensive. The blue cheapies will not take much solvent but I have heavier paint stripper type gloves for those few jobs. I do like the feel you keep with the cheapie gloves. Has anyone tried the 9 mil HF gloves & if so do they cause you to lose the feel quality? Do they last much longer? Obviously the trick is to have a balance between longer wear , feel & protection. I'm not concerned with if they're sterile or allergy issues.
