Nitril gloves are "puncture resistant" (or at least that's the idea for the medical use ones)
So my theory was that this makes it harder for a bee to sting through them, they still can, but its harder
I bought a box a while ago and used them a few times
They are very handy, just make sure you get long sleeved ones or your wrists are exposed! And you do sweat it them, lots (i never knew my hands could sweat so much - but i had that pair on for well over an hour of being active)
Normally i dont wear gloves, but i do get the odd sting on the wrist/arm, but i am still new and probably dont smoke them enough
