Default Brewing Gloves!?

Since I recently started using a pump, hoses, and camlocks I'm realizing that I need some brewing gloves! Something not overly thick but is heat resistant and can take some moisture. What do you use?

Thanks,
Robert

I have these...

...and they work well. Not heat resistent where u can hold ur hand over a burner, but enough to keep hot water from leaving blisters/burns.

U could also look into the Ove-Glove, I know some people who use those too but they aren't good for moisture.

I use leather welding gloves, but as mentioned already not good for moisture. I really only need them during dry operations though, so they work for me.

I just hang an old hand towel on my brew stand and use that to handle hot stuff. Gets wet? Just use a different corner.

Yep.
I've worked in kitchens most of my life. I own a restaurant now. A dry towel, many of them actually, is always nearby. Useful for many tasks.

One towel on the apron to wipe moisture and grime off, two towels to hold hot things, and a fourth that I keep tucked in the back of my apron for wiping down anything with sanitizer, not that given action makes it sanitary.
Kitchen style.

Use your buddy's hand to light burners and disconnect boiling hot cam-locks.

Thx, these look nice and have good reviews. Just hate to pay the shipping for just gloves :-(

Yes, towels and mits can be used but a bit of a pain especially with on HOT camlocks.

I bought some cheap Ove-Glove knock-offs at Menard's. They work fine for removing camlocks and holding hot tubing.

The Blichmann gloves come in real handy if there's a problem with your hose coming loose inside the mash tun. Gotta work fast, though, since they're not very insulated.
