when i bought a 40 cal suit, i asked how do they rate the gloves?

for most stuff other than standing there feeling protected from anything
other than chuck norris, i pretty much use 1 kv gloves with protectors.
40 cal gloves without dielectric value seems a bit pointless to me.
why would i be in something that can dispense 40 cal of flash, unless
i was working on it while energized, unless i was switching, and i don't
do that any more.
