Nitrylex Disposable

Enabling Precise Movement

Nitrylex Disposable Nitrile Gloves are the most versatile gloves we could find. From people who work with injections and biological samples to drug administration, nursing care, dentistry, patient feeding, veterinary medicine, wound dressing, small-time assembly work, dressing change, work that entails contact with different chemical substances (including beauty salons), and more, these gloves will accommodate more occupations and tasks than most.

To some extent, the product is so versatile because the available size range starts at S and reaches XL, whereas most disposable gloves do not even include more than one size (usually L). Plus, the sizes don't run small, enabling precise movement without hindering the hands wearing them.

Besides that, the gloves are easy on the skin and even somewhat pleasant to the touch, nothing new. But, featuring extra texturing on the fingertips is a lot less common, something that these gloves do to prevent slipping.

We're not crazy about the gloves fading when they come in contact with detergents. Apart from that though, Nitrylex Disposable Nitrile Gloves ensure safe and hygienic work without even taking into account what that work involves and revolves around.

WALPLUS 50 pcs Disposable

Beaded Cuffs Too

The people at Walplus are claiming that these are finest-quality gloves, with the close fit accommodating precise tasks. For the most part, we can agree with the claim. To start off, the gloves are pretty good at shielding the skin from dangerous elements, ensuring that contamination is not even an option, off the table, not possible, not a chance, we'll stop here. To add more, this kit packs the strongest, most durable gloves, with beaded cuffs preventing tearing when donning. Plus, the cuffs also keep the hands sealed, making sure that the elements are not passing through them.

All that being said, we've seen these solutions before, more than once. We seldom see manufacturers waterproofing nitrile gloves though, no clue why since the treatment lets you work with abrasive chemicals. Now, waterproofing the gloves also makes them smell weird initially but the smell goes away within the first few uses, so we are not really complaining here. We're also not complaining about the resealable bag that these blue gloves are shipped with, enabling convenient transportation even with the bag already opened before.

In short, these are excellent household gloves, something we would always recommend wearing before doing dishes, mopping floors, and cleaning the house in general.

Hizek 100PCS

Resistant Against most Elements

Hizek Medical Gloves are cheap, offering you 100 gloves at almost 10 quid. They're not cheap quality-wise though, not one bit. No, the sizes run small but the gloves are available in S, M, and L, so you can find and choose the ones that fit you. They're durable gloves, about as oil-resistant as the more expensive options, antistatic, and not easily breakable. Aside from offering antistatic properties, the gloves from Hizek are acid-, alkali-, and abrasion-resistant, enabling even slight assembly work, let alone anything that involves bacteria and chemicals.

Besides everything we have already mentioned, these gloves are not containing latex proteins, which means that they will not cause allergic reactions. Unlike latex gloves, these ones are extra-thin, accommodating precise movement.

You would expect gloves these affordable to be stuffed into some disposable bag yet this is not the case here. On the contrary, the gloves come in a nice box that easily dispenses them, so you can pull the gloves even with one hand.

Considering that they're also powder-free and that you can choose between blue, black, white, and even purple options, Hizek Medical Gloves become too attractive to be overlooked by the people working in the medical industry, sure, but also in industrial production and those who need nitrile gloves for residential use.

St John Ambulance Examination

Maximum Hygiene Protection

St John Ambulance Examination Gloves aid more than examination work, despite what the name tells you. No, because these gloves are excellent at reducing infection and cross-contamination risks, you cannot go wrong wearing these gloves while doing laundry, washing dishes, floors, dressing wounds, feeding patients, working with harmful chemicals, you name the task. Also, since these gloves are packed in pairs, you can issue and give them out with more ease and comfort than you would with standard 50- and 100-piece kits.

Not unlike most half-decent nitrile gloves, they're soft, sensitive, pleasant to the touch, and thin, keeping you flexible even while wearing them. They're non-sterile too but, since the gloves are wrapped individually, these packs are ensuring even more hygiene protection, which is not something we will usually complain about. We will complain about the cuffs though. Made a little short, these cuffs are not always covering the entire wrist, which is a little unfortunate.

That said, there's nothing unfortunate about these gloves reacting to the body's temperature and conforming to the hands' shape. Taking that into account, St John Ambulance Examination Gloves become irreplaceable first-aid assistants.

MediHands Black Powder Free

No Slipping Allowed

MediHands Nitrile Gloves are alright, we do not have many negative things to say about these gloves, it's just that the ones before them are a little more impressive. The gloves keep the price reasonable and the quality high but there's nothing separating them from most nitrile gloves. In fact, putting these gloves on wet hands feels somehow even more challenging than most disposable rubber gloves, a little odd considering that there's nothing that different about them.

They seem to be made from the same nitrile, remaining easy on the skin (even sensitive skin) and offering a much more pleasant tactile impression than latex models. They also come adopting textured grips, making sure that even slippery objects are not slipping away. The gloves are non-powdered and non-sterile, accommodating tattoo artists, mechanics, hospitality and medical fields, and food preparation. Featuring beaded cuff, the gloves from MediHands are protecting the forearms from dripping. Moreover, the cuffs are increasing the gloves' strength.

Assuming that you have something to do with the above-mentioned fields and professions, these gloves should fit the bill. That being said, they will also fit household use.

What Are Nitrile Gloves?

Latex gloves used to be the norm before we realized that latex allergies are very common and not something that should be taken lightly. When that happened, nitrile gloves came to the rescue. Protecting the hands from harmful elements, these gloves also proved more comfortable than their latex counterparts. The material does not harm even the most sensitive skin. Gloves made from nitrile remain soft even when stored for years. Most people find them more pleasant to the touch as well. With all that in mind, the choice between nitrile and latex becomes obvious. But the choice between different products is not quite as obvious.

You have packs that are including powdered and non-powdered gloves. You also have sterile and non-sterile gloves. Sometimes, these gloves can be partially textured (usually at the fingertips), fully textured, or not textured at all (we would not recommend the last option though).

Aside from size and colours, ranging from blue and black to even pink and orange, there are gloves that can only accommodate household use and gloves that can aid examination, food preparation, industry production, and more.

Continuing with the gloves and medicine subjects, these arthritis gloves are a must-have for people suffering from stiffness, swelling, and pain in the general hand area. Dropping the medicine subject but not the gloves subject, these winter cycling gloves will let you ride the bike during winter with ease, comfort, and confidence.
