    I think we are talking XXL gloves now! I would 'double-glove' it for strength, or even quadruple it, also giving you gloves to wear if you need them. Maybe this would be even better using a pair of cotton work gloves for added warmth. Of course, the latex gloves are good since you can see what you have in there. It is a great starting point for a neat and useful project! It's got me thinking how much can be stashed in one glove -- with careful packing, probably a lot. Remember that latex gloves will deteriorate within a year or so and start to break down into flakes, though, even when stored in a reasonably cool area, i.e., not in your glovebox in the car!

    Is this for survival? 5c's of survival
    Cutting tool you got
    Cover you don't
    Combustion you don't
    Container you don't
    Cordage you have a little.
    Why not put some fish hooks that paper clip. It's smaller and just put a little duct tape around them. Where is the fishing line!!! Do u plan to make ur own out in nettles or use the inner strands of para cord. GOOD LUCK!!!!
