We use Aloe Touch Nitrile gloves, powder-free from Medline (MDS195084 for small size)  www.medline.com.        (1-800 - medline) These gloves are not stiff, they fit the hand 'like a glove' .  They say on the box "not intended to be used as a chemical barrier", but they do a great job when exposed to Histology chemicals.

I would like to know the answer to this one too. I've been using nitrile
gloves, which are rated as having moderate protection against xylene (they
slow down how quickly xylene goes through them?)  The brand I use is what's
in our stockroom: Kimberly Clark and they come in a pretty purple. :-)
