    No way they are "6mm thick".

    The Product description is "6 mil". Which I presume means six one-thousandths of an inch, or 0.15mm thick. Typical thickness for a thin disposable plastic.

      Agreed on the thickness (don't think you'd have too much dexterity with a 6mm glove!) but seems like a good price regardless.

      Great for those who need to keep up the ruse that they are allergic to latex.

      They also don't tear anywhere near as easily as latex, these don't get ripped to shreds when poking around in an engine bay.

      Fwiw I use 3.6mil nitrile gloves and they don't tear easily so 6mil should be good

      Hi Seb - that was my bad. I have deleted the reference.
      thanks for the clarification

    I've been using these gloves for a while now. They're great for working on cars and in the garden, or just about any duties you can think of. They're able to take a fair bit of abuse without taring.

    Way better than the Black Rocket ones that repco sell.

    Highly recommend.

    I find when I use latex I actually swell up

    Would be good to update post with what the deal is, being save $1.50

      yep - my problem is if you do a general search for nitrile gloves https://www.repco.com.au/en/search/?text=challenger+nitrile it shows that you are saving $14. When you click through it says you are saving $1.50. To add to the confusion it shows a 10% off mark which doesn't seem to be relevant at all ?? My PURE GUESS is that they would sell closer to the $20 mark than the $10 mark but happy to be corrected on that.

        These are always ~$10, I bought this exact pack a year ago at that price (+20% off storewide or something as I remember it was roughly $8).

        Not to say this isn't a good deal considering the price of nitrile gloves at the supermarket or even SCA.

    Great for those who need to keep up the ruse that they are allergic to latex.

    And those who prefer that nitrile doesn't rip to shreds as easily as latex

    FYI, latex allergy is actually a real thing. It's a natural product that has a protein component, and some people really can develop a genuine allergy to these. Nitrile, on the other hand, is totally synthetic so much lower risk of a real allergy. What the vast majority of people probably have is a sensitivity to latex, which normally results in a kind of short-term dermatitis. It's easily fixed by just not using latex.

    anyone use these for bbq/food related use?

    Do the nitrite ones have holes in them. Are they waterproof as I want them to clean the car. I have latex ones at the moment.
