I am looking to buy a good pair of lineman style rubber/leather gloves to wear during reconnects / disconnects . My only problem is a dont really nead a true high voltage glove as i mainly do res. work. Any ideas? I know most people just wear a good pair of leather work gloves but better safe then sorry.

www.salisbury.com but the rubber goods have to be retested every six months by a testing agency. Our employer supplies ours. I'll bet the larger electrical wholesale houses carry them also. I'd check out Salisbury's site anyways. If you're on your own, you might want a whole PPE kit with a hardhat, faceshield with chin guard, gloves, and minimum 8 cal/cm^2 coverall in a handsome carrying case for $150 to $250.

Here is a site you can get PPE and have it tested at regular intervals.

Are hot gloves all that are required by OSHA for this type of work? Something to think about...
