    Ok RoKo,
    I just got back and I bought every Telezapper they had. Where do you want me to send them? Just kidding.

    Don't forget the secret to wearing those for trooping is to wear some ultra thin Cotton (or other fiber) under them. Otherwise when you take them off yourhands will be prunes.

    I am CONINED that is what Johnny Depp did for Willy Wonka.

    They actually make an underliner glove to be worn with a rubber / latex glove for industry.

    I work in the production of silicon chips in a clean room and we have underliners provided. I have worn them for more than 12 hours at a time and they work really well :)

    They had the same glove underliners when I worked in the U.S. (I am currently in Ireland) so I would think they are readily available worldwide and shouldn't be expensive.

    I will try to find out a manufacturers name.

    Cheers Chris.

    I stopped by a dollar tree tonight and found them. Since they were so cheap, I picked up a few.

    The rubber feels like a thick balloon. I didn't think I was going to use these, but I may now. :p

    Here are a couple pics:

    I would have been more than happy to snap up a bunch of these but I fly charter for a living and I wont even see home untill after the 15th of next month. I am glad others are picking up the slack. I mean for a buck who can complain.
