But one recent encounter made me think I might need to start bringing the gloves out more often...
Last week, the wife of a friend of mine messaged me to see if I would throw on the gear and come over and entertain her sons and their friend during a playdate, because the visitor had mentioned Ghostbusters about a dozen times while being there.
(Actually, when she sent me the message saying "Do you want to come over and play Ghostbuster?", I replied "Rachel, please, you're married to one of my dearest friends!" to which both she and her husband laughed.)
Orion was visiting my Mom at the time, but Zak and I both kitted up and drove two streets over. It was a total fluke that my pack had a charge on the blue-brick from the week before, so I took the more 'impressive' one though I've been known to wear Orion's much-lighter pack if mine won't have power or if it's a night event where all they'll see is the lights.
The visiting kid, who was all of five or six years old, told me first that he had a toy Ghostbusters gun at his house which was "even better than the real thing". Then he asked me in a somewhat condescending manner where my gloves were.
I don't generally find myself getting 'dressed down' by a child on the details like that.
Maybe it's time to get a little more on-model.
Haven't been around a lot in gear yet, but i'd consider the gloves as "pretty important detail of the total look of a fully geared up buster on duty", since it adds up (as well as the ellbow-pads) to the "exterminator"-style the original uniforms refer to. Even though they're honestly not much fun to wear, but haveing them somewhere, like hanging on the belt or from a pocket does add up (sorry - no pic) i think.
Wouldn't consider them as mandatory, if there's none of the actual ghost-catching gear (pack or trap) involved as well - so when things get dirty (as busting ghosts always will), it's better to have 'em at hand (literally)
I tried once using the chemical gloves and my hands looked like prunes when I was finally able to take them off.
The gloves I linked are quite comfortable to wear and my hands don't sweat in them so it's a win/win to me.

It's probably been done to death already, but I always assumed they were essential to isolate the user from the dangerous electrical effects of the wand - hence I've wrapped my grips with electrical tape to theoretically perform the same function, so I can happily blast away without 'having' to wear gloves.
Mind you when I was a kid I begged someone to get me suitable gloves; ended up with turquoise marigolds... I wore them (as I 'had' to for the aforementioned safety reason), but was NOT impressed...
