About a year ago, my good friend Sheila Smith told me that using UV arm sleeves while working in a glovebox would help with several things. The first is sweat protection. Anyone who has ever used a glove box (or ever wrapped their arms in saran wrap and gone for a run) can attest that sweat can be real problem... for the next user especially.‡ The other is ease of sliding in and out of the glove box gloves.
