I just received a question from a colleague who currently has a little person in his organic lab.  They are having trouble finding chemical resistant gloves that fit properly. Extra smalls have fingers that are still too long.  The professor has ordered some children's craft gloves made from LDPE to see if those work (compatibility will have to be looked at closely), but they may be too narrow across the palm.  This little person is a chemistry major so they will be in lab courses for the foreseeable future.  Any recommendations?
