Default Gloves for the squeeze?

I'm getting ready for my first BIAB batch and I'm trying to find gloves to use for lifting the bag and squeezing it.

I've seen some references to gloves from HD but when I checked out the ones in the store they had a heavy odor of plastic /PVC to them...

What are you all using?

I sparge and I went to a cool water sparge, no need for gloves anymore. When I did though I wore my leather welding gloves, yeah the soaked up some liquid but really never got hot.

I don't BIAB, so I cannot attest to these gloves with regards to squeezing, but I use the Blichmann brewing gloves and they are great.

Just Google "silicone oven mits" you can grab red hot stuff with them with no worries.

I don't sparge at all, and I use the lid to my boil kettle. I just press on it with my bare hands, and move it around, pressing at different angles.

I've also seen someone (on brewgeeks I think) use the bottom of a plastic pitcher.

Chemical Rubber Gloves from Lowes:
They are thick enough to give you some heat insulation, but will get hot if you 'play' too long...but they are nice and cheap.

Otherwise, pay a little more for grill gloves: http://www.lowes.com/pd_434512-56845-SR8967_0__

If you have access to a drill, the drilled bucket technique won't cost much more than the gloves.
