    I've used the powdered ones successfully, just "wash your hands" after you put them on. The gloves dry quickly.

    I usually get an itch somewhere as soon as my hands are in the bag and the film is out of the canister...

    Yea I start doing the ichy-goomy dance almost every time. Since I am not a Navy Seal, I am not capable of mentally dismissing an itch. Ever pick up a pen with your teeth and try to scratch an itch while the hands are in the bag?

    I spent ~1.5 hours half naked in the pitch black bathroom with a tiny fan at 12AM, rolling 34 36exp cassettes of Kodak Double X from a 1000ft reel last week. Not fun since the AC does not circulate in.

    Tonight seems much more humid, broke a sweat in bathroom rolling just 3 rolls of Kodalith 12exp to test from a 100ft roll.

    My darkroom is also quite warm, the air circulation is horrible. Might need to drag in a portable AC, the fan is not cutting it.

    If it is due to humid and hot in the room, I does mine in an air conditioned room.

    In hot weather I use a plastic ice pack that I have frozen in the freezer and leave it in the changing bag for half an hour before I put the tank, spiral and film in it and it keeps my hands from sweating while I load the film.

    Now I can get this image into my head and understand.

    No Steve, I put the ice pack in in the changing bag half an hour before I put my hands the tank and film in .

    Mr. Roger Luo sells cotton fabric changing bags on the auction site. My sweaty hand related problems vanished after I changed my old synthetic fibre bag to his 100% cotton bag. I know several other photogs who say the same.
