We use Sensicare powderfree vinyl gloves from Becton Dickinson #484301 
for the small size. They also sell a low powder version.  Our supplier is 
Fisher (800-766-7000), and in their catalogue sell them for $17.00/box of 
100 for the powder free (#11-127-51A) and $8.50/box for the low powder 
(11-127-52A).  They are good at sending samples to try.  These are 
thinner and stretchier than the usual vinyl gloves, but still have 
sweating problems.
