What gloves do you guys use to protect your hands when doing maintenance? Vinyl, latex, nitril?

Dissposable Marigold Industrial vinyl.  They have a light dusting of talc on the inside and this makes them easy to get on and off.  I can get two 'wears' from a pair before they split.
I put a pair of household marigolds over the top if I am using the parts washer though to stop them swelling up.

If I'm using the parts washes, I use a pair of industrial grade, chemical resistant gauntlets that go right up to my shoulders. If I want to remove my nail varnish, I go gloves free, especially in the cellulose thinners tank 😂😂😂

I'm using these, nitrile. They are strong enough to sustain most of mechanical "load" and resistant against fuel, brake cleaner etc.
Sometimes I can use them more than once, depending how long and what I'm doing. Using them practically always when doing something in garage..
100pcs pack is around 8eur

... as they don't rip like a durex 
But... you are not supposed to force a hand, let alone a fist in a durex, Paul. ;D
Thank you all! Great info!
