Each weekday in May I will highlight an item that every outdoorsman needs that costs less than $20.

Everyone who hunts or fishes should keep at least one pair of nitrile gloves in their backpack or their tackle box. Actually a latex, or plastic pair would work fine as well, but I prefer nitrile due to the added resistance to punctures and tears. Note, these are not hunting gloves. They are not designed to keep your hand warm. We will address that with another product. These are designed to keep the nastiness from fish and game from getting on your hands or entering your body. They can also be used when working around your tree stand site to get rid of poison oak, ivy, or sumac. Since they are disposable, you simply pull them off inside-out and you do not have to worry about the urushiol oil (the actual ‘poison’ in those plants) getting on your other clothing when washing normal work gloves. They can purchased just about anywhere with 100 gloves per box ranging between $7.00 and $10.00.
Nitrile Gloves $7 to $10 for 100 ct box.
