As noted, each pair of chemical protective gloves offered by Keepshooting.com is an authentic U.S. Military surplus item. These chemical protective gloves were originally designed as a singular component of the USGI chemical protective suit that was designed and produced in 1970 and intended to provide protection from the known chemical and biological hazards that existed at the time. As such, these chemical protective gloves were designed for issuance to members of the U.S. Military, especially those who served in the U.S. Army requiring such protection.
Each pair of chemical protective gloves is a brand new, never issued item and remains in its original factory packaging alongside the original information and instruction card. As such, they are free from the typical rips, tears, stains and scents that are characteristic of previously issued military surplus. In other words, these chemical protective gloves are an excellent choice for those looking for moderate protection from mild agents.
Nice gloves for the money, but be warned, they are size SMALL ( at least that's what I got) - not large as mentioned in the text description: "Sized large, each pair of gloves also includes the original information and instruction card, which provides valuable information regarding proper use and care for the gloves."
Fortunately I can still get my big hands in them, but they are tight! Still not bad for $5. I would have given them 5 stars on value except for the size issue.

For 5 bucks they are a steal, I have several pairs and use them for handling and applying pesticides and also for cleaning my bathroom or picking up dirty objects. The inner cotton glove doesn't fit my hand at all (I have average hands with somewhat slender fingers) So they are pretty much useless unless you have very small hands. the rubber glove offers great protection for the money though.

They reach really far up the arm, preventing discomfort and getting chemicals on your arms or sleeves. They're a bit big, but otherwise perfect.
Great Thick Chemical Gloves!
Review byOliver Cromwell Verified Buyer
I always hated MOPP drills in the Army. However, these gloves are awesome for working with chemicals--I use mine when I'm cleaning engine parts while using strong chemicals. Definitely cannot beat the price--Keep Shooting has the lowest prices I've found.
Great Gloves, but small
Review byLock N Load Verified Buyer
Ordered two pair, can't beat the price. However, I did not know that they would come in size small. The gloves barely fit and tight too, forget using the cotton glove insert unless you have small hands.

Perfect if you don't wanna get your hands dirty. They reach very far up the arm,which makes them even more useful. Overall, 10/10

I have had my pair for over a year and they have been very useful around the house. I really like them because they reach so far up my arms, I really don't like getting my hands dirty. Thy are an excellent buy for the price they are at.
