When it comes to protection from pesticides, the best glove money can buy is made from Nitril. Here is a quote from the Virginia Tech Pesticide Program. "You should never handle a pesticide without using a pair of unlined chemical resistant gloves....Look for gloves made of nitrile ....." We have historically carried a much thinner gloves but due to customer requests we now only carry the much thicker 8 mil glove for the best protection level. Especially easy to handle measuring-spoons during mixing where the chemical is at its most concentrated form. Box of 50 gloves will last most users 1 season. Also great for painting, staining, cleaning with bleach and other powerful cleaners. Simply great to have around. Sizes tend to run small so if you normally wear a medium, consider a large.
