We run into this issue regularly with very small micro tubes at -80 being a large part of our business. I've found that the fabric gloves with the dipped palm and fingers give employees a medium of dexterity and insulation. Not a perfect solution but better than thin nitrile or bulky cryogenic gloves. A glove that insulates well and retains dexterity is a market niche that cries to filled.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Gloves for -80 freezer work?
A lab tech here asks this question:
I am looking for recommendations for gloves to use while organizing -80 freezers. I do have cryogenic gloves, but I am looking for something that allows for better dexterity.
I wonder if anyone has dealt with this issue?
Thanks for any help with this.
