Long used by "in the know" sailors like Olympians and skiff racers are the Atlas Fit Gloves. The heavy duty Atlas Fit Gloves have superior grip, design, and wash-ability. The Latex rubber palm makes gripping those hard-to-hold, slippery lines easy, and the breathable knit back makes these gloves great to use in moderate to warmer weather. The heavy duty version are rugged, making them great for distance races and back-to-back buoy races when you need reliability in your gear, and are especially perfect for mast and pit persons. Like sticky tires on a race car, don't expect Atlas gloves to last more than a few hard races, but do expect for your hands to be stuck to that rope just like that race car on a track. Stock up with a few pairs so you'll always have fresh gloves once you burn out the "tires".
