I am as picky about the disposable nitrile gloves I use as I am about the tools in my toolbox. For some applications, ordinary off-the-shelf gloves suffice. But when dealing with harsh or hazardous chemicals, I’m definitely a name-brand glove kind of guy.
The first thing I noticed about Microflex’s MidKnight gloves is that they definitely look more bad-ass compared to ordinary run of the mill gloves. Not only do they look good, these gloves offer better-than-usual specs. The glove material is 5.5 mil thick at the fingers, and 4.7 mil thick at the palm, offering high tear resistance. At 9.6″ long (on average across the sizes?), MidKnight gloves are also a tad longer than generic branded gloves.
Not only does the glove’s color give it a unique look, in my experience they offer improved contrast that helps small tears or rips stand out better, compared to blue, silver, or purple gloves.
You can find these gloves for $12-16 plus shipping for packs of 100, or if you go through gloves quickly, a case of 1000 will run you $120 or so.
